Story cubes for OT work

Story cubes are making the rounds in OT land. About $6.95 on 9 dice, 54 images, batrilions of ideas. Lots of ways you can play with them. I like them to help with idea generation for kids struggling with that, common in autism etc. Today was my first day using them. For one child, he rolled all 9 dice, picked an image, then wrote the first sentence. We were using a monster theme. Then I'd write the second sentence after I picked an image off the dice I rolled. Repeat. But the possibilities are endless, y'all have OT brains, figure it out. 🙂

By the way, if you can see the “squiggle” on top? The first graders have “book of squiggles” where they have a partial drawing, that they can turn into whatever they want, then write about it. Super cool.

Today I had a boy doing it who drew a poisonous snake, but wrote “bo not touch” and I was like “Boo not touch???” and they thought that was hysterical……..then he WANTED to write it that way. Those b and d reversals are tricky. 🙂
