Using Olivia into Your Speech Sessions
- Vocabulary Expansion: Grab your students’ attention by reading “Olivia” out loud. By reading “Olivia” aloud to your students, you immediately introduce them to a plethora of new words and concepts. Trust me, the kids will be thrilled to level up their language skills and rock those new words in their daily lives. Pair this with the comprehensive guide to teaching vocabulary included in my resource and your students will not only enjoy expanding their language skills but also get a chance to apply their learning to real-life situations.
- Sequencing Mastery: Who said therapy couldn’t be fun? Engage your students in a fun-filled activity involving pictures of children going through their morning and nighttime routines. Utilize the captivating illustrations in Olivia to facilitate discussions related to sequencing. This activity helps students develop their ability to arrange events in a logical order, enhancing their expressive language skills.
- Plurals and more with Beach Vocabulary: Take your students on a virtual trip to the beach using Oliva. Dive into the book and introduce beach-themed vocab to your students and encourage them to practice using plurals. This activity promotes language development as well as creativity and imagination.
