Back to School Apples:
For the younger kids, I'm using the Back to School Apples because you can draw and/or write your answers. We started out reviewing what a "goal" is, making the connection to sports, and discussing how it is something we all should work towards. We also discussed what we are excited about, and how we are different from last year to this year.
I gave some examples of some Speech goals, and my personal goals. We then wrote our speech goals on apples and shared them with each this activity is free on TpT as a thank you to YOU! :)
other. It's important to me for the kids to know why they come to speech, and what they are working on. This activity starts out helping them understand why we come to speech, and it's not just for the stickers! Just a reminder
For the older kids, I'm using my "Let's Investigate" activity. It's a cute way to get the kids to interview one another, and add a writing component. The students are all challenged to be an investigative reporter. They are asked to pick a peer and interview them for the school newspaper, The Daily Learner. They are provided with a note page, checklist, and rough draft page. They must ask questions to get the information to write the article. This is a great way to work on questioning and answering if that is a goal for your kiddos! The final draft also has a cute activity where the "reporter" can draw the person they are interviewing!
