A Bulletin Board Idea

I bought a book several years ago called Fun Folds: Language Learning Through Paper Folding that had ideas for using different origami figures for use in speech therapy.  It has detailed instructions, and many different ideas/activities to use in speech therapy with each group of projects. 

One of the projects was for making tulips, and I liked the idea of using that craft for following directions and for using with articulation therapy or any type of vocabulary development as a reinforcer when the target was correct.  I made a bulletin board, with strips of green paper as blades of grass, a bright blue background, and a colorful row of pink, purple, yellow and orange flowers.  Through the sky, written in tall letters were the words "We All Talk with our Tulips." That play on words was a mini-lesson on one aspect figurative language for my older students.
