Materials, Therapy Ideas

Love Monsters


It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I love incorporating themes into therapy but don’t like planning to encroach on my personal life either. So enter in my Mini Articulation Cards. They make crafts SO easy!

I printed mini articulation cards on red paper for each student on my caseload. My language students work on describing, categorizing, and grammar skills with the cards as well. The first session, we practiced drill style while cutting the cards out. Then, we read Love Monster by Rachel Bright and I explained what craft they would be making next session.

The second session, we made the craft while practicing the same skills! We added eyes, a mouth, teeth, and ears. All you need for this craft is my mini articulation cards, red paper to print on, black & white paper, paper plates, and glue! Super easy and I got so many trials in with it.


The book is fantastic for tons of goal areas. I can easily work on WH questions, emotions, idioms (the book contains so many such as “down in the dumps”), sequencing, and inferences. The book is quite funny and cute 🙂

Hope you can incorporate this easy craft in your speech room. If you’re interested in checking out my Mini Articulation Cards, click here to check them out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
