I use this to plan all the activities I do for the year. The week before, I pull all my materials/books/Pinterest ideas together for that theme and know exactly what I will be using with my groups. When I have something to center therapy around, it makes those material choices so much easier. If you want to know more about how themes are beneficial, read this guest post by Twin Sister Speech & Language Therapy on my blog...it's awesome!
Some of it will look the same as last year and some will look a little different. I threw in a some new themes that I didn't do last year (Yay for dinosaur week!) and also left many themes running for two weeks. I did this because last year, there were tons of weeks that I wanted to keep going with certain themes. And I probably will find that it will happen with certain ones again this year. But this is my framework for this year and I am SO excited it is done :)
If you want to use my calendar, you can grab it HERE. I also have a blank one if you want to make your own, check it out HERE! I also created an August to June calendar for those of you who have requested it, get it HERE.
Do you use theme therapy? What are some of your favorites?
I have made a blank EDITABLE version!!!
