Speech Therapy: Gingerbread Glyphs

Until I signed up for Pinterest, I had never heard of glyphs. I found this one, thought it looked like a good idea, and tried it out with my speech therapy groups in December. I LOVED it! Making the gingerbread men was flexible - the chart contains a lot of speech sounds, and the whole thing is such a great springboard for language. The students liked making them, too.

The picture above is out of focus, but I think you get the idea. The students traced the gingerbread template and bow and then drew in their own "accessories". This is from the kindergarten group.

I ended up videoing most of the students talking about their gingerbread stories with my iPad. Pinterest and iPad - two new great therapy tools! I think the videos will be a good thing to present at ARD (IEP) meetings.

My only con, and it's a minor one and easily fixed, is that the "leg" instructions actually say "arm".
