Today I wanted to share a fun and easy way to work on following directions and basic concepts. I have a few friends who are targeting these goals in speech so I need to make sure I keep the activities fun and engaging. I also found these awesome toy cars on sale, so of course I had to use them right away. So we decided to go cruisin’ with our new cars to work on our goals.
I had some colorful duct tape that I put on the floor to make the road. I made sure to put some left and right turns on there too. I saw this amazing ‘street print’ duct on amazon you can get if you really want to make your room feel like the open road.
Next, we worked on concepts by putting the cars in front of each other, behind each other, next to each other, and going left and right.
We also combined these concepts to work on following two-step directions like ” First turn left and park the car next to the red one.”
Sometimes it’s fun to get away from the speech table and out on the open…floor 😉
