Digital Pumpkin Themed Lesson Plan Activities For Speech Therapy

It's that time of year again...

Pumpkins are everywhere, including in speech therapy sessions. And with good reason! There's so much language around how and where pumpkins grow, picking pumpkins, what pumpkins look like, foods made out of pumpkins, and more!

Another great thing about the pumpkin theme in therapy is that it's a seasonal theme and not a holiday theme. If you have students that don't celebrate Halloween, it still works. Plus, you can keep the pumpkin theme going strong in November, if you wish!

Well, if your tried and true pumpkin activities don't translate well to teletherapy- or maybe you just want some new ideas- check out these teletherapy pumpkin activities from around the web!

Pumpkin Themed Virtual Field Trip

A virtual field trip to the pumpkin patch is the perfect way to kick off a pumpkin theme! Many kids are familiar with visiting pumpkin patches, but if not, you get to take them! This PDF uses big, colorful photographs to introduce the theme and vocabulary, target concepts, practice describing, and so much more!
