Enjoy this consolidated list of winter speech therapy activities to finish the year off right. It’s go time. Just a few days left of school and it would also be nice to have therapy pre-planned for when we get back in January. Here are downloadable and printable activities. Children are crazy excited at this time of year and these activities help us tap into their elation.
If you like using books, we also have our: Best Winter Speech & Language Books for Therapy.
Speech Therapy Winter Bingo
“This is a fun and easy bingo that kids love and can easily be adapted to work on articulation and language goals. For use in Spanish or another language, you can write the words on top of the English words and then laminate the cards.” – Kristen
Online Winter-Themed Activities
“Here is a list of websites for winter speech therapy activities that are helpful for finding winter holiday themes.” – Kat

I also found a blog with a nice list of winter activities. Many of them are paid however. Here’s that post: Dabbling Speechie.
Winter Literacy-Based Activities
The Mitten Speech Therapy Activities
“I LOVE to use “The Mitten” by Jan Brett (and others). I’ve probably gone overboard with the attachments but I have included them all here.” Allison L.
Favorite Winter Literacy….
Secondary Level: Shel Silverstein poems about winter (Snowball, Come Skating, Merry), Harry Potter for the win, win, win.
“I love poems. Here is a great one and an attachment with a list of some of my winter favorites (with some that I made up!).” – Cristina
It used to be that polar bears
Went bowling, just for grins,
With snowballs for their bowling balls,
And penguins as the pins.
The bears would have a blast,
With all the snowballs that they threw.
The penguins weren’t as happy;
That’s the only time they flew.
So penguins all moved south and now,
They’re at the other pole.
Well, wouldn’t you move far away
If bears used you to bowl?
Comparing and Contrasting: Seasons
“I love how we have a place to save all of our resources and therapy tools online at Bilinguistics. Here are 3 winter activities I have used.” – Alisa
“That will be my first time using these activities. I’m happy I found already-made materials!” – Emmy
Sequencing Events and Naming Body Parts
“I love using snowmen. For the first activity, you can target goals such as sequencing events and body parts. This activity is also an opportunity to talk about the attributes. For the snowman worksheet, I can target body parts. You can also find objects on the snowman. This activity is a great opportunity to play I Spy while describing objects or have children describe various objects that they find on the Snowman. Last, I plan on creating a Cottonball Snowman. I draw 3 circles on a piece of paper (big, bigger, and biggest). The students practice artic/language targets by gluing snowballs in each circle as a reinforcer.” – Carolyn
