Fun Online Activities

Hi everyone,

Here are some online materials that can be incorporated into therapy. The kids love getting on the computer, and it can be a nice change of pace for us too!

•  Storyplace.org  is an online library of animated English and Spanish stories. The animations and dialogue are fun for the kids, and pages can be navigated at your own pace which is great for stopping to ask comprehension questions. Related activities and recommended books accompany each theme.
•  Do2Learn.com is a collection of resources and activities for children with special needs, with a focus on autism. This is an English site, but it’s easy to adapt several of the games and activities by providing your own instructions in Spanish. My kids really enjoy following directions with location and sequence words to create a room, and also like playing what’s different?, which is great for vocabulary building and category naming.
•  This one is not interactive, but Early Learning Activities by Evan-Moor is a great resource for bilingual printable materials. There are lots of cut-color-paste activities that are great for practice with following directions, categorizing, and sequencing. (Grad student hint: the entire book is available for purchase, but there are plenty of sample pages you can access for free.)

Have fun!
