Doable Dose of Kimochis

SLP: Week One

Getting Started with Kimochis and Speech Therapy

  1. Print one poster to post on your speech room door or wall. (Often kids who aren’t on your caseload will stop to enjoy looking at all the fun feeling faces, which makes speech fun and cool!)
  2. Consider sending one feeling chart home for each student on your caseload in order to promote feeling language carryover.  (Encourage students to play the feeling games at home with family members! See games below.)
  3. Consider printing one Kimochis feeling chart for each classroom that you have a student on your caseload.  Make a classroom visit and leave behind this fun feeling prize! (See games below you could do for push-in therapy.)

Getting to Know Your feelings Game

Invite one student at a time to point to a feeling and…

  • Say the feeling
  • Make the feeling face
  • Make the feeling sound  
  • Tell what might make a kid their age have this feeling

Note:  For older kids, you can play:

  • Charades! Students act out feelings for classmates to guess
  • I Spy a feeling you might have when… people say you can’t play.  (Left out)
