Have a child or student who LOVES to learn about animals and is intrigued by the ocean? If so, I have an INCREDIBLE downloadable resource for you! 

In the Ocean Receptive and Expressive Language Activities for Speech Therapy is a fun-filled creation that includes various activities, games, and worksheets to target receptive and expressive language skills.

Get ready to target your students’ expressive and receptive language while learning all about the ocean. This is perfect for summer learning or that field trip to the aquarium!

This resource includes the following activities to improve your child’s vocabulary as well as his or her ability to describe, listen, follow directions, and remember (via using strategies to enhance working memory):

  • Introduction to the Ocean
  • Let’s Draw: My Favorite Ocean Animal
  • Memory Cards (cartoon and real photographs included!)
  • Puzzles
  • In the Ocean: You Tube Videos
  • Venn Diagrams
  • Listen and Follow the Directions Activity
  • Listen, Learn, and Remember Game (Game to review Fun Facts about Ocean Animals)

Since repetition is vital to language learning, In the Ocean includes several different ways for vocabulary to be entertainingly experienced (e.g. Colorful cards in cartoon and photograph versions are available to play memory and cute puzzles to put together).

However, In the Ocean targets MORE than just vocabulary! There are 5 different Venn Diagrams (in color AND in black and white) to assist your child in comparing and contrasting various animals and items associated with the ocean.

THEN, there is the Ocean themed  – Listen and Follow the Directions Activity that encourages your child to carefully listen and follow super amusing directions (basic one-step directions and more complex two-step directions).

And, last (but certainly not least) there is the Listen, Learn, and Remember Game that teaches your child fun facts about various ocean animals. Your child will have a blast playing this game! Using a thematic approach, a child is introduced or re-introduced to vocabulary associated with the ocean (e.g. humpback whale, coral, sea turtle, sperm whale, etc.).

In the Ocean can be used by speech therapists, educators, and parents and enjoyed by children in Kindergarten through 8th grade!
