SLP ways of using FROZEN!!

·

Have you ever had an AH HA moment?!  My students were singing “Let It Go!” and I realized…”hey this is a teachable moment?!”  I decided to come up with a list of ways to use this movie in your speech sessions!

Vocabulary:

  • There are some vocabulary concepts our students may not know in the movie!  Just use the song “Let it go.”  You can give them the lyrics or show them a sing a long version on You Tube.  There are tons of words to teach such as: isolation, distance, limits, rage, and crystallizes.  They can use the context clues of the movie to figure it out!
  • Categorization: can they think of all the frozen/cold concepts used in the movie (i.e. ice, storm, snowman).
Comprehension:
  • Sequencing: can your students retell the movie to you?!
  • What is the main idea of the movie?  Characters?  Setting?  Problem?  Solution?
  • What was the cause of the winter?  What was the effect?
  • What do you predict Frozen 2 will be about?!
Reasoning:
  • Why is it funny that Olaf wants summer?  You can show them the You Tube video of “In Summer.”
  • Why was it surprising that Ana chose Elsa over a boy at the end?
What else?!
  • Verb tenses
  • Articulation — pull out words from the movie with your student's target sound!
  • WH questions
  • Compare/contrast Ana/Elsa, winter/summer, etc.
  • and so much more!!
Students are SOOOOOO motivated by this movie, why not use it?!
