I love it when I have one activity that I can use all day with all my kids.  Kind of like a speech therapy swiss army knife.  Well, this one is quick,easy, and something you already have. Just use the phrase, ” What do you want to be when you grow up? ”


Yes, with this simple little phrase you fill your therapy plans for the day.

Articulation: ” What words with your sounds would that person use? ”

Vocabulary: ” What words would that person need to know? ”

Associations: ” What objects/people/places go with that job? ”

Describing, Syntax, Writing: ” Describe the that persons job. ”  You can have the students describe the job ( things the person would use, where they would work, etc ) as well as, write a paragraph detailing the occupation. 

Pragmatics: ” How would people expect this person to act?  What situations may come up at their job? ”

Here is a bonus!

Fluency: Have them practice their fluency strategies as they tell you why they like that particular job.
