I wanted to share some wonderful freebies I found from some of our fellow speechies on TpT.  There are a lot of wonderful products out there and who doesn’t love free?! These are just a few favorite pirate themed free therapy materials:
Pirate Treasure Challenge by Peachie Speechie. This freebie is great because it a quick way to get students to complete their articulation repetitions.  It turns something that can be monotonous into something fun for the kiddos.  They enjoy practicing and seeing who will complete their page first.
Pirate Themed Following Directions by Kathy Babineau I have used this freebie as it is intended (following directions) but I have also used it as a reinforcer (coloring page) and as a language game (much like “I spy with my little eye”)!  I have described parts of the picture to see if students could figure out what I was describing and then turned the tables so that they had to describe a part of it for me.
Speech Seeks and Language Looks – Pirate edition by Jessica Finch.  I absolutely adore this freebie!  It was so helpful when I was working with mixed therapy groups.  My language kiddos could work on vocabulary, answering wh- questions, categories, and descriptions.  My articulation kiddos looked for pictures that had their sound in it and reported back to me in what position that sound was before practicing producing it accurately at their level (drill, phrase, sentence).  My fluency kiddos used the pictures to practice their fluency shaping techniques.
Pirate Category Cards by Panda Speech.  I have a lot of kids working on categories on my caseload (it happens every year). These adorable category cards were just what I needed!  After the student names the category, I will have them name as many more items as they can for that category by trying to name 5 more while trying to beat the clock!
Pirate themed Bulletin Board Reinforcement Game by Speech Universe.  Do you have a pirate theme in your speech room?  If so, this is a wonderful behavior reinforcement tool and bulletin board!

How do you celebrate talk like a pirate day?
