Lately, I have been seeing lots of pics and posts about these super cute ball poppers in speech therapy! I found one at Hobby Lobby and one at Michael’s. Let me tell you, these little toys have been such a hit with my kids! Today, I wanted to share some ideas on how to use them in speech.
I have been using these ball poppers in speech therapy to work on concepts. Kids can pop the ball and then use their concepts to tell me if the ball is ‘next to’ the basket, or ‘behind’ the chair, etc.
Using these poppers in speech therapy for general reinforcement is awesome! For every ‘X’ amount of productions or completing so many questions or tasks, they earn a ball. You get about six balls with each toy, depending on brand, so that means we can get quite a bit done before they get poppin’.
3. Following Directions and Sequencing
Incorporating these poppers into following directions tasks has been a blast. I will have kids ‘stand up and pop the toy’, etc. I have also had kids tell me and sequence the steps to use the toy. Then, pop it of course.
How would you use them?
