Carryover Activities for March
Here are some ideas for you to use at home to encourage carryover of the skills that your child is learning in speech/language class. Remind your child to use either their best speech sounds and/or speech fluency strategies when they answer your questions. As always, they will go into the raffle 2 extra times for practicing at home. Please send in a note stating that he/she completed an activity.
