So I'm trying to incorporate a little of these skills into my daily therapy. We call them sticky words. They help link or glue our different thoughts together. I want my students to be able to speak and write cohesively. I'm hoping that utilizing these will be a step in that direction. This is why I made a sticky words board.
When we are creating sentences, retelling stories, writing, reading, etc., we talk about these words on the board and use them! I love it when my kids find one while we are reading. I have them pull it off the board and we talk about it and create sentences with it.
To make them I printed the words on bright orange paper and laminated. Then I cut squares of magnet from this tape and affixed it to the back of the word.

I've been going a little magnet crazy, lol. I did the same thing with testing and classroom vocabulary. I added visuals to give them something concrete to see, since these can be very difficult words. We made it into a game, where different words are worth different amounts of skittles/m&ms/stickers. We try to talk about them and define them.
Unfortunately, I can't share those with you because I don't have the rights to a lot of the images. I just wanted to give you an idea of something you can do in your speech rooms!
