Before we begin, FULL DISCLOSURE: In addition to being an SLP, I am an independent distributor for Stampin’ Up, a cardmaking/paper crafting company.
Cardmaking is a hobby I enjoy and an activity I have brought into my speech room for many years. Students of all ages LOVE making cards, and the activity is fertile ground for language enrichment. I have been able to target many IEP goals, including vocabulary, comprehension, following directions, sequencing, articulation and pragmatic language. And don’t we all love sharing our own interests with our students?
I have pondered this post for awhile, as I do NOT want to make it appear as a marketing ploy. So, even though I am a Stampin’ Up distributor, these activities can be accomplished with other supplies that can be purchased on Amazon, Michael’s or substituted with items you already have available to you.
I also created a free resource that targets reading comprehension and is mutually exclusive to the cardmaking activity. You can download the resource in my TPT store here: Reading Comprehension History of Greeting Cards.
Here is a picture of the completed card project:
You can also link to my video to use with your students that provides step-by-step directions.
