Fall Bulletin Board
I’m a little late getting my bulletin board up for the Fall season. However, I found something that can probably carry me until winter. I searched for something that I could use for therapy and looked appealing for Fall. I found a pattern for owls that was simple to make, used shape and size vocabulary, would require sequencing of directions and I could add preposition symbols to it to reinforce those concepts. I used a die press to cut out most of the pieces for the owls. I used Boardmaker to make preposition signs to put on the owls belly. You could also print them from here. http://www.speakingofspeech.com/Language_Materials.html#Prepositions
The Owl pattern is found on this page http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mshapesowl.htm
I started by making a tree on the bulletin board. I twisted brown paper to make limbs and had them come together for the trunk. I then added a half moon behind and a rock below the tree. This gave the children the ability to place the owls according to a preposition sign they were given for 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.
