Going for a Walk

Daily routines are the perfect opportunities to target speech and fine motor skills. We can even practice these things while we are going for a walk!

LANGUAGE

  • Practice animals’ names and sounds they make while walking like them.

  • Describe different plants and animals you see through identify their colors, shapes, sizes, textures, etc.

  • Identify actions you see around you (Birds flying, cars driving, kids playing, etc.)
