Who's Making That Smell?

*You are encouraged to get the books we read in class and read them at home. The library is a great place to get the books if you don't have them already! Please print off and do any home activities that are posted throughout the year. This is a great way to keep your child progressing on their goals! If you ever need a paper copy of the activities, just let me know and I will send one in your child's backpack. Another great way to use this page is to talk to your child about what we did in class. You can show them the pictures and ask them "tell me about..." to get some good language and descriptions. Give them support where needed so they always feel successful in their speech and language skills!*

 In Class:
This week we are reading Who's Making That Smell? Its a fun lift-the-flap book that is very interactive. We are targeting /s/ blend words, such as smell. 

To go along with the smell theme, we took turns smelling different scents and deciding whether is "smells good" or "smells bad." It was interesting to see what the kids thought smelled good and smelled bad. 

Meet Miss Emily!! She is an SLP assistant intern from ASU. She will be helping me through December. She made a fun game for centers called "Smack!" The kids took turns smack-ing the flies with a fly swatter. Then they pulled the fly off to see what s blend word was behind it. It was a huge "hit" (a little pun intended) and the kids have asked to do it again another time. Thanks Miss Emily!

Home Activity:
If you didn't receive one of these elephants in your child's backpack, you can make one with the template below.

Use your elephant to find things around your house to smell with his trunk. Ask your child if it smells good or smells bad. The kitchen is a great place to find lots of smells! 

Print on cardstock if you have it. Have your child color their elephant to make it their own!

Please let me know if you do not have consistent access to the internet or a printer and I can send home these activities in your child's backpack!
