Back to School Speech and Language Therapy Packet


Back to school is a great time of year to get motivated, think big picture, go over goals with your kiddos, and set up systems that will ensure success throughout the year. This is even true for me and those of us who work year round, outside of the schools!

I recently revamped my Back to School Speech and Language Therapy Packet to include better graphics and fonts, and some minor changes.  This is a HUGE packet that contains materials to start your school year off right! It’s 83 pages and contains over 15 activities!

•Back to School Bingo
•Back to School Barrier Game
•Back to School Board Games
•Back to School Do-a-Dot Sheets
•Get to Know You Question Cards
•Black and White School Themed Homework/Worksheets (open-ended for articulation)
•Pack Your Backpack
•Summer Vacation Page
•Draw Your Break
•Color the Student (receptive language)
•My Speech Goals Booklet (with student friendly data sheets)
•All About Me Booklet (both booklets have multiple cover options)
•Back to School Themed Booklist
•Back to School Sequencing (2-step and 3-step)
•What Doesn’t Belong In The Backpack? A non-reader friendly category based activity.
•Build A Sentence Formulation Activity: Arrange cards to form a complete sentence to describe silly ways that students get to school.
•Back to School Themed Social Scenario Cards

I know I always like seeing pictures of pages, especially ones “in action” before buying a product. Below are pictures of some of my absolute favorite parts of the packet:


I love the printable black and white homework sheets. They are perfect for homework (obviously) and also great for no prep therapy exercises. This one targets following directions (I love using it to target following written directions):


And this one is PERFECT as articulation homework. Write any words you’re targeting on the books, color, cut, and glue onto the backpack:


I’ve included tons of sheets to help your students understand their goals better:


And to help you keep track of progress monitoring/goals better:


My favorite activity in the packet is a sentence formulation activity with a back to school theme. There are 8 cards for each WH question type. Pick a card for each type to make a silly, back to school themed sentence.

Slide09    Slide11    Slide15

I’ve always felt like Bingo was a super versatile activity. I included both written and picture cards depending on the goals/level of your students.

Slide17    Slide21

And who doesn’t love a good barrier game? Four scenes with instructions are included.


Easy dauber pages are included as I’m pretty sure I use something like the one shown above every single day.


Get to know you question cards are included to help you get to know your students and allow your students to get you know you!


One thing I feel like I’m always targeting is sequencing so I’ve included sequencing cards of various sizes and number of steps.

        Slide69 Slide79

Above are two different activities that are perfect for the beginning of the year: a what doesn’t belong activity and social scenario questions. These do best when laminated but I’ve used my Back to School Social Scenario cards without lamination for a year now and they are doing quite alright 🙂

Hope that helps give some more information about this awesome, time-saving packet. So much of it is black and white too!
