Thanksgiving Dinner Speech [BEST]

You can get a bit personal with your speech if you prepare a bit ahead of time. Think of everyone that will be sitting at the table and prepare a few words specific to each of them to make them feel special and welcomed to your feast.

The idea at the heart of thanksgiving celebrations is that we pause to take time to fully appreciate, and acknowledge all that is good in our lives. For instance: our families, our friends, our homes and the means to sustain ourselves.

- gratitude or thanks for all that is good, wholesome and sustaining in our lives. For example the food we eat, the love we give and receive, our family, our friends, the country we live in, the air we breathe, the parks we play in, our work, freedom of speech, an education ...

Like many traditions, the origins of thanksgiving have been blurred by time. Not only are there contradictory accounts, and differing interpretations of events dependent on viewpoint but there's also the inevitable, and ongoing, introduction of other cultural and religious celebrations. Today's Thanksgiving celebration is an evolving fusion of them all.

Our classrooms have lots of food centers set up so when this little fellow came over to speech wearing his chef attire I had to snap a picture! He is tapping the salt shaker into his biscuit recipe while we created a yummy Thanksgiving dinner!

After your students finish their crafts, you can laminate them to send home as homework for the Thanksgiving break. Your students can have it at their dinner table to remember to practice their speech or language targets.

If you are not wanting to use Thanksgiving videos, you can always use alternatives such as videos about gratitude, families gathering for dinner, or learning about turkeys. Here is a blog post about turkeys and ideas for therapy.

In this video about Thanksgiving dinner, a woman keeps bringing out the dishes, and the people around the table cheer every time she comes in the room. You can discuss what she could be thinking when they cheer. At the end of the commercial, you discover that behind the door is a TV and everyone is watching a football game.

For those of you SLPs that have dog-loving students on your caseload, this video will definitely perk their interest! In this video, the dog cooks Thanksgiving dinner. Here are some skills you can target with this video:

What Thanksgiving videos do you use in therapy I would LOVE to add to my list. Share in the comments. If you are needing winter videos to use in speech therapy, check out this BLOG POST. It has a FREE Google Slide with all the winter-themed videos organized for you. When things get busy, it is great to have some videos on hand that you can pull up with ease!

Or, you can highlight turkeys in your therapy sessions to discuss a type of animal, specifically a farm animal with your students. One of the most versatile things to cover is a farm theme. You can highlight different animals each week to work on the category group of farm animals, but in that sub-category, you can also cover a lot of speech and language goals talking about individual farm animals. If you need digital therapy resources for a farm theme, I have a blog post filled with great recommendations you can read HERE.

Whether you are in-person or doing teletherapy, you can use turkey videos to help frame your therapy sessions with engaging content. In this blog post, I will be sharing some of my favorite turkey videos you can use in speech therapy.

Following Congress' recommendation, President George Washington issued a proclamation naming Thursday, November 26, 1789 as a day of public thanksgiving, the first time Thanksgiving was celebrated under the new Constitution.

The tradition of pardoning White House turkeys has been traced to President Abraham Lincoln's 1863 clemency to a turkey, although this is likely apocryphal. This was recorded in an 1865 dispatch by White House reporter Noah Brooks who noted, "a live turkey
