Crocodile Word Scavenger Hunt

A fun activity is with a Crocodile word scavenger hunt. This activity combines the excitement of a treasure hunt with the learning benefits of vocabulary building among the children. To set up the scavenger hunt, the therapist can hide small Crocodile toys or pictures around the room or outdoor space and provide a list of Crocodile-related words for the child to find and match to the corresponding toy or picture. This activity not only engages the child’s attention and encourages movement but also reinforces the association between words and their meanings, improving their language skills.

Prehistoric Sensory Bins

Another creative way to incorporate Crocodiles into speech therapy is by using prehistoric sensory bins. These bins are filled with other items and materials that allow children to explore their senses and engage in tactile play. The therapist can create a sensory bin with items such as plastic Crocodiles, rocks, sand, and leaves. They can encourage the child to touch, feel, and interact with the different objects while describing them and practising language skills. These sensory bins can also be used to teach prepositions, such as “in,” “on,” and “under,” by asking the child to place the Crocodiles in certain positions within the bin.

This sensory activity can easily lead to the next activity, storytelling with Crocodile puppets. Please encourage your child to use their imagination to create stories using the sensory objects from the bin and the Crocodile puppets. They can practice language skills by telling stories and describing the actions of the Crocodiles. With these fun and engaging activities, your child will be able to improve their language skills while exploring the exciting world of Crocodiles.

Storytelling with Crocodile Puppets

Encouraging children to use their imaginations is a vital part of speech therapy, and storytelling with Crocodile puppets is a great way to do just that. Just grab a paper bag and some construction paper! As children create stories with the Crocodile puppets, they can practice their language skills by describing the actions of the Crocodiles and telling engaging tales. This activity can be seamlessly integrated with the prehistoric sensory bin activity, serving as a natural continuation.

Dino Dig for Articulation Practice

Once your child is finished with the storytelling and sensory bin activities, it’s time to move on to a fun and engaging articulation practice session. The Dino Dig for Articulation Practice activity is a great way to work on speech sounds while incorporating a Crocodile theme. To set up the activity, bury small toy Crocodiles or Crocodile figurines in a sensory bin filled with sand or rice. Then, have your child use either a small shovel or their hands to dig for the Crocodiles. As they find each Crocodile, they can practice saying the name of the Crocodile or work on specific speech sounds by saying a word that begins or ends with that sound.

Using Crocodile Names to Improve Phonological Awareness

Another way to incorporate Crocodiles into your therapy is by using Crocodile names to improve phonological awareness. Phonological awareness is the ability to recognize and manipulate sounds in spoken language, and it is an important precursor to reading and writing.
