We hope our last speech therapy tip about goals was fun and helpful. This week we would love to share one of our most effective, short videos about working on story grammar. SLPs have used this strategy, and we are thrilled with the feedback.
“It was so much fun–for the kids and me!”
“The kids remembered the parts of the story!”
So, here is the cliff notes version of this strategy. First, working on story grammar is a great way to align to the curriculum (this is law, folks). Second, adding beats, rhythm and movement makes it stick more. Actually, kids are 3 times as likely to remember when gestures are involved. What?! Yes, THREE TIMES! Last, for some of us here at Bilinguistics, we love music of the hip-hop persuasion. And because children are our future, and hip-hop is history, we are going to drop some beats and tap into our students’ awesome potential.
One more thing! Literacy-Based Speech and Language Therapy Activities includes great ways to help your students develop story grammar components. And (there’s more!), check out our favorite books for speech therapy. You will discover some of our favorites for intervention. We love big books, and we cannot lie!
Let us know in our comments section how the story grammar rap goes. We can’t wait for you to join in on the learning and fun!
