Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to bring some much-needed warmth to your special education class, school-based therapy session, or online therapy classroom. The well-loved and whimsical images of this holiday are a great way to break up the last month of winter, and incorporate a little extra fun into your special education, speech-language pathology or occupational therapy sessions. This iSpy FREE download contains plenty of lovable images for your students to “spy.” There are hearts, chocolate, red roses, teddy bear… and many more!
To complete this Valentine’s Day activity, students will count the number of each item on the first page, and enter the quantities in the space provided on the second page. Use this worksheet to address a number of receptive and expressive language skills, including: identifying/labeling the different items, categorizing/grouping items based on color, size, shape, purpose; describing items using details, comparing items (e.g., “The lips are red” vs “The chocolate is brown”), learning “size” concepts such as “bigger/biggest” versus “smaller/smallest”, and, on a separate page – writing/typing complete, 5 or more word sentences about the item (e.g., “I like chocolate hearts because they melt in my mouth.”)
In addition, this activity addresses the following occupational therapy skills: visual scanning, figure-ground perception, eye-hand coordination, and fine motor skills.
