I had a wonderful SLPA (speech language pathology assistant) student in my classroom to get her hours completed. She jumped at the chance to plan an activity for our Rooms of the House theme. Her mission--an activity for the bedroom. She took the book Ten in a Bed and ran with it!!
During circle this week, we read Ten in a Bed, which is a fun book about a bunch of kids sharing a bed.
In our small group rotation, our assistant, Lucy, took the book and she and the students played with the coolest activity! Our SLPA made the bed
and provided the clothes pins, and Lucy worked her magic and turned the clothes pins into kids!
Vocabulary- bedroom, bed, pillow, blanket, roll
Grammar- is verbing (he is rolling)
Math- counting to 10; simple subtraction; number identification
We went through the book, page by page and brought it to life with the clothes pin kids.
And, finally, there was 1 in the bed
And the others were sure to get her out of bed!
The students had a lot of fun with this activity. It was a great way to bring a book to life while working on vocabulary, basic concepts and pre-math skills.
