Write with magic in your speech room!
Are you looking for new ways to work on tons of skills that don’t require much prep? Want to keep students motivated by providing them a neat activity that is like no other? Grab a white colored pencil and you are all set to go!! Yes, that is it!!
What do I do with this white pencil?
Anything!! You can easily write answers to questions, articulation words, or drawings on a piece of paper. Your students won’t be able to see what you wrote! They can color over it with a marker, crayon, or highlighter to reveal the hidden message! MAGIC!!
I just love using items I already have in my therapy room to make speech sessions fun. The ability to work on a variety of skills with one or two items makes planning and prepping for speech sessions so easy!
What else can you do?
Have your students write messages to each other!! NO PREP FOR YOU! Just grab the supplies and done! For example, each student can write an object down on a piece of paper with a white colored pencil. They can pass the paper to the student to the right of them. That student, must reveal the hidden object, and then use their describing skills (or EET) to describe it! Then, they can write their own word on the paper and pass it to the next one and so on!
Working on noun/verb tenses?
You can write the base word in a regular color and use the white colored pencil to write the endings. Students can check their work after they express their answers!
Want to make worksheets fun?
You can write in all of the answers with the white colored pencil. Instead of having students write their own answers, they can check their work!
Want to work on predicting?
Students can draw a picture on a piece of paper using the white colored pencil. The other students in the group must reveal the picture piece by piece and try to guess what the object is!
