Extension Activities

Here are some other ideas of how you can incorporate the theme and AAC in some other fun ways!

Bowling:

Just sticking icons underneath bowling pins can turn this routine activity into a language-based one. Watch how Jen and Liam do it and think about other ways you can embed icons. 

Fishing Fun:

This week's theme works well when "fishing" for objects or icons. Watch how Liam does it, but think about how you can also do this with the game "Go Fish" and other activities.

Science

Who knew you could make water walk? Check out this fun experiment.
