Halloween-Themed Language Tricks & Activities


Hey Everyone! I am so excited to be linking up with the Frenzied SLPs to share a few Halloween activities you can do this week in therapy.

My students love telling me about their halloween costumes and currently, the sales ads are full of costumes! This is the perfect opportunity to develop multiple language skills including comparing and contrasting as well as describing.    


For this activity, students select two costumes to compare and contrast. Students are prompted to provide the similarities and differences in the characters' super powers, abilities, location, mask vs. no mask, etc. Student can also describe the costumes (i.e., category, function, size, colors, etc.) using the sales ads. 
How cute are these pumpkin stickers from Hobby Lobby!? This is a great activity to target requesting, body parts and location words (i.e., top, middle and bottom). I also use them as a quick reinforcer while targeting articulation goals (i.e., "Say 10 words and earn a body part.")
Who's hungry? My students love any activity that involves food! These spooky eyes are super easy and fun to make during your therapy sessions. You'll need Oreos and brown M&Ms. This activity provides a great reinforcer for students that can identify one of their "'EYE' (I) CAN" targets for the day.

Last, I am targeting inferences this week with a Halloween twist. This inference set includes 18 inference cards and a "How to Make an Inference" poster to review with your students! 

Game Rules:
1. Print, cut and laminate all cards and “Trick or Treat” bags (one per student).
2. Use the “Inference Poster” to review concepts, if needed. 
3. Place all cards face-down on the table. 
4. Have students take turns turning over the cards and making their inference. Once they’ve made their inference, instruct students to place their card in their “Trick or Treat” bag. 
5. Watch out! If a student turns over a “Monster” card, they lose a turn.
6. Once all cards are claimed, the student with the most inference cards in their “Trick or Treat” bag, wins the game! 
One last treat...Pumpkin Poo! My students love this treat and laugh every year I give it to them! It's cheese balls in a snack-size bag. This is a fun alternative to giving them MORE candy! :)

  7. Chinese translation because there are seven main and three newly recognized dialects in this language. Our translators take these different dialects into considerations and adapt their work to communicate effectively with your target audience. Mandarin language.
