It is standardized testing week at my school and my students needed something fun and silly to do after spending all morning taking the test (me too since I spent all morning administering it!).
I have several students working on conversational turn taking and topic maintenance. I also have a group of students that are working on their sounds in connected speech so I figured a conversation activity would be best.
I found some mustache tape and stick-on mustaches this weekend and made some conversation starter cards using a mustache template.
If you "mustache", it has been a hit so far. The kids loved seeing me wearing a mustache. We may have done more laughing than talking.
To make this activity yourself, simply pick up some mustache tape at Target, some sticky mustaches (I got mine at Old Navy for $2/pack), and download the free conversation starters at my TPT store. I wrappd an old Play Dough container with the tape and it was the perfect size to hold the cards!

Alexis from Practically Speeching invited me to participate in her fantastic Practically Sharing segment. I got to write a guest blog post about how I am modifying materials to keep students engaged and interested in therapy these last few weeks of school. Check it out here!
