It is time to start planning all of the activities for back to school in speech therapy! I have compiled some of the back to school activity ideas that I will be using as well as some other popular school based SLPs on the web. The downloadable lesson plans in this post follow the same format as the weekly lesson plans I share all year. There are even back to school activities for toddlers just starting preschool!
I’m always looking for fun activities for back to school for my preschool and kindergarten students. For many of them, this is their first time ever going to school. I want to do what I can to make it extra special for them. That’s why the songs and stories work well for back to school activities for toddlers.
The back to school activity ideas that I will include in this post will have you prepared for the first week or two of school. The free lesson plans include direct links. By using the Google Doc I have made, you can open it up right on your desktop and click directly to the songs, stories or printable activities that I will be using.
You can read more about how and why I follow a schedule my preschool therapy sessions HERE. I start with a song, we read a story and then we do the activity. It may be directed play or a worksheet. I share the links to the stories and songs with parents through our Canvas classroom.
Each step in our schedule is covered in my lesson plans with back to school activities:
