"Visit" a Nearby City That You Have Never Been To
Teen 2020 Imagine Your Story

London, Africa, and Paris are all wonderful bucket list destinations that we dream of going to one day. However, traveling overseas is very limited right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime, make a list of local nearby cities you would like to visit and go for it. We are talking about places in the next city or county over - someplace you can drive to and from within a single weekend. Pick places where social distancing would be easy to practice, or take a virtual trip.Seek out what other teens do for fun, and go out safely in person or virtually to enjoy those things. Then come back and plan your next trip. It is fun, affordable and you can bring all your BFFs with you.Earn two points for each of the first six tasks and three for the seventh task. Good luck!

Articulation Generalization Parent/Child Activity
Adult 2020 Imagine Your Story

This is a four-week mission.You and your child are going on a reading mission! For your child’s difficult reading comprehension to become second nature, he/she must PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! It’s time to work on generalizing the words so that he/she is saying it correctly all of the time. (If you don't have children of your own, offer to assist a young relative or child of a friend.)Directions: You’ll first discuss with your child why it is important to read and sound out the words correctly. What may happen when you don’t produce the words correctly? Each week you will practice your “mission.” Your mission will be to choose a time during the day designated for your child to really focus on his/her reading comprehension. During this time you will remind your child to produce the words correctly. This will be the only time you can correct your child on his/her speech sounds. As your child’s performance increases, you will increase the amount of time for your mission. Your mission can occur at any point during your day that you and your child choose. Some ideas include during mealtime, after school, or while reading a book. Afterward, have a nice surprise waiting for them such as a sticker or new pencil.
