July Activity Roundup

 Summer is cookout season so here at E-Therapy we’re keeping the grill hot by cooking up lots of Independence Day and summertime fun for you to use in your July therapy sessions. Read on to hear all  about the amazing activities the teletherapy experts at E-Therapy crafted this month. 


Independence Day Spot the Difference

Our Independence Day Spot the Difference visual perception activity has 10 hidden differences in a fun-filled fireworks scene. See if your students can find them all. This activity works well in both remote and onsite settings and can be used to address a multitude of therapy goals.  

Get the Scoop! Ice Cream Matching Activity

Here is a fun matching game focused on a favorite summer treat – ice cream! E-Therapy’s Get the Scoop! Ice Cream Matching Activity is a PowerPoint positive reinforcement activity that can be used while working on a variety of speech/language therapy goals. When it is your turn, click on two squares to see if the ice cream photos match. Once all of the items have been found, the person with the most matching pairs wins the game. Be sure to scoop up this fun activity today! 

Going to the Beach Jamboard

Going to the Beach Jamboard  is a fun summer activity requiring students to brainstorm, naming items one might take along when visiting the beach!  To start the activity, students initially brainstorm and type their ideas of items to take along, then they’re given visuals of possible items to name and discuss.  After considering each item shown, the students are asked to name 5 items again, recalling items that were originally listed and/or new items!  This activity addresses students’ vocabulary knowledge, recall abilities, and even categorization skills.

E-Therapy’s Stars and Stripes Fine Motor Skills Sheets were created to target coloring and cutting skills in a fun and colorful flag craft activity. This activity can be printed in greyscale for onsite sessions or can be emailed home and printed for home practice or for use in remote sessions.  

Patriotic Dance Break Cards

Our Patriotic Dance Break Cards are the perfect way to incorporate movement into your July therapy sessions. Our PDF cards can be printed for onsite use or can be screen shared in remote sessions.
