So, what can you do with these little guys? Here are a few ideas I came up with:
- Ask a student's monster to tell a story or tell about a person. ("Hey Monster! Tell me about your best friend!") As the student makes their monster talk, work on self monitoring by having them correct any articulation errors the monster makes.
- Have the student's monster read a passage out loud. Silly monster voices are allowed, of course.
- Target social skills by having the monsters act out difficult situations (they can draw cards from the Difficult Situations Fun Deck, for example)
I tested them out on my own hand today. They are a little small for an adult hand but still work OK. They are super easy to apply (all you need is a damp paper towel) and they come off with soap, warm water and a little scrubbing.
I would love to hear any other suggestions you have for using these tattoos in speech!
