105: Low Prep Winter Therapy Ideas

Low Prep Winter Therapy Ideas



What are your favorite winter activities? 

We are in the heart of wintertime now, so why not talk about some fun winter themed speech therapy activities that you can do with your students? 

The ideas I’m sharing on today’s episode of SLP Coffee Talk can be used with any age level. These themed activities are created with as many groups as possible in mind  so that you can make your planning and prepping super easy. All you’ll need is one book, game, or resource to use with as many groups as needed. 

I know it can be a challenge to stay motivated during these long and cold winter months, so these low-prep therapy ideas are my go-to activities when I need to get my students motivated and excited to work towards those speech goals. 

I love these activities because they can easily be adapted and used again and again to work on different speech goals. 


In This Episode You’ll Discover:

  • Fun and easy winter themes you can use in your lessons
  • Winter-themed games you can do with your students
  • How to incorporate different speech skills into these games
  • The melting snowman activity that my students love
  • Ways to make things hands-on and fun in speech therapy


I hope you found this episode fun and applicable to your speech therapy room. All of these activities are great for working on multiple skills like describing, comparing and contrasting, sentence structure, main idea sequencing, and other goals. They really are an easy way to have some hands-on fun with your therapy students. 

If you are interested in doing these activities but would like some visuals, make sure to check out this blog post. I share all of these activities with photos so you can see these games and activities in action and use them in your own therapy sessions. 

The melting snowman is an adorable and extremely motivating toy that you can get off Amazon (affiliate link HERE!) or you can find it at local Barnes and Nobles.
