Fire Safety Lesson Plan Activities For Teletherapy
Fire Prevention Week (which is the week that October 9th falls each year) is a great opportunity to use the theme of fire safety in your speech therapy sessions. After all, is there anything more important than teaching your students how to be safe, should a fire (big or small) ever occur? I'm making it easy for you by gathering tons of links to fire prevention and safety themed activities to use in teletherapy.
Boom Cards are my go to for most themes, and fire prevention week is no different! This deck has at least an activity or two for all of my elementary students. It targets goals of sequencing, answering wh- questions, vocabulary, description, pronouns, inferences, reading comprehension, and articulation. Wowza!
Do not miss this FREE one-page activity for mixed groups! With language and articulation targets right on the page, it's incredibly simple to hit all the goals with this one simple resource. Open it on a PDF reader on a computer or tablet, or print the black/white version!
