I used this cute owl back in 2011 with my speech therapy students. I had searched for something that I could use for speech therapy and looked appealing for a Fall bulletin board. Here it is Fall 2022 and I decided to bring the post back to the top for those of you looking for therapy ideas.
I found an owl pattern that was simple to make, and used multiple shape and size vocabulary. It would give an opportunity for sequencing of directions and I could add preposition symbols to the finished project to reinforce those concepts. I used a die press to cut out most of the shape pieces for the owls. I printed out preposition icon symbols to put on the owls belly.
The Owl pattern is found on this page http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mshapesowl.htm
I made a tree as my background on the bulletin board. By twisting brown paper to make limbs and then then making them come together for the trunk. I then added a half moon behind and a rock below the tree. This allowed opportunity for my students to place the owls according to the preposition sign they had on their owl. They could place them in front, behind, beside, below, between, and next to an object or the tree.
I gave it a title of “Who is Here?” Here is a picture to give you an idea.
