Last week, we went grocery shopping in Speech Therapy. It was so much fun, I did this activity with the younger children on my caseload.
1. First, I showed them a sample shopping list and we talked about making a list before going shopping. We went through our book, "Buying Groceries" Written by Ana Paula G. Mumy and Illustrations by Korey Scott, and we wrote our shopping list of all of the items that we would buy.
2. Each child had their own shopping bag and as we took turns reading the different pages of the story, they got to collect the items that corresponded to that page of the book.
The book that we used is from a series of other books from the GROW! ¡CREZCA! Story & Language Books: Spanish-English Edition.
These books are great for the students on my caseload because a lot of them are bilingual. The books show both Spanish and English with four separate progressive levels, based on the student's reading level.
Each student's target goals were incorporated into the session.
All of the students enjoyed going grocery shopping..
