Drag and Drop Jamboard Puzzles: Fall Theme

Drag and drop puzzle pieces into a square to create a fall theme picture. Double check—are the pieces in the right spots? What did you make a picture of? What do you notice? These puzzles are most appropriate for students in 2nd through 4th grade and are great open-ended activities to promote visual-perceptual skills, receptive and expressive language skills, and articulation carryover. These Fall-Theme Jamboard puzzles can be used in teletherapy and with iPads using the Jamboard app.

Spooky Scene Bitmoji Virtual Classroom

If you’ve been following E-Therapy for awhile, you may have seen our Spooky Scene Bitmoji room last fall which is preloaded with tons of interactive therapy links that you can use in your remote or in-person therapy sessions. We’ve made a few link updates to the room for this Halloween season, so be sure to check it out!

October Daily Digital Planner

This PDF October Digital Planner was designed for use in teletherapy and onsite session planning. Sections include tabs for a yearly calendar, an October 2021 calendar, Daily Reminders checklists, Lesson Plans, and Resource links to aid in planning therapy sessions. When using this hyperlinked PDF on the computer, Adobe Reader is recommended to ensure that the hyperlinks continue to be live. If you plan on using this planner with an iPad, a paid app such as Goodnotes is recommended. If you already use a paid Adobe Pro subscription, you can use the Adobe Reader app on your iPad to edit your planner and the notations will save from your iPad and opened using Adobe Pro on your computer. Using a digital pencil or a stylus will also be helpful but not required. If you are using OneNote, keep in mind that the hyperlinks will no longer be live.
