A Parrot for a Pirate


Ahoy, me Hearties!  “Talk Like a Pirate Day” is right around the corner (9/19) and a true pirate always has a trusty parrot on his shoulder.  Here’s a chance to catch one for yourself!

You will need:
A copy of the worksheet (print b&w or in color) for each student.
A die.

To play: 
Optional:  Have each student guess which parrot they will capture by circling or underlining the number adjacent to it.

The student rolls the die and matches the rolled number to the correct parrot.  The therapist or teacher asks a question.  Get it right and you can check off a box.  Once you’ve filled in all the boxes below a parrot, you’ve got a trusty sidekick!

Can be played individually or in a group.  Can be used year round with any pirate themed activities (you know you have 'em, speechies!)

You can pick up your copy here.  Enjoy!

25 Ways to Ask Kids about Their Day

The kids are all back in school and we are all wondering WHAT they are doing all day! A fabulous way to work on language skills is to ask kids what they have done today. It does not require long term memory and can usually be remembered with a little prompting from adults.



Asking these questions is great for story telling skills, past tense (grammar) and social skills.

Get your list of 25 questions free by going here.

Sports, of course!

It's been almost a month since I've truly had the opportunity to plan out a new activity for my students. Sports seemed like a natural choice with the recent start of our local high school and middle schools football season. It's also a great way to encourage younger siblings to be proud of their brothers and sisters for choosing to live an active lifestyle. 


I'm really excited about this activity as it can easily be combined with books or short reading passages. I started off with basic vocabulary lists for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and general sports terms. Next, you have some basic questions for each of the four sports. I have included blank cards so you can write more story-specific cards as you need. I know I will be making up more questions as soon as I get my library books.


To find out more about the other items included in the packet, check out my blog by clicking on the image below!

Summer Directions Coloring Sheet 1

I'm sharing some more of my following directions coloring sheets that were so popular in the spring.  Here is my first version of a summer coloring sheet.  This directions sheet requires a child to listen to basic directions for coloring, cutting and pasting objects in particular places to complete the picture.   Make this activity as difficult or easy as your client requires by simply modifying the directions.

I have made this quick print and go activity to help you get to know your students at the beginning of the year.

Why Are They Going To Speech: Teacher Handout

Frequently, SLPs are asked why students are going to speech.  I created this handout to help SLPs answer the 3 most common questions that come up in these conversations.



This handout provides brief answers that SLPs can further elaborate on if needed. You can go to my blog to read more and download the handout HERE.

ISIP (In Speech I Practiced) Notes

Have you ever been asked to write home notes about what a student did in therapy? While I'd love to do this for all my students, I don't think I could find the time, especially with groups! So I created this easy checklist based note that students can fill out themselves or you can just check off skill areas and send them on their way!

Comparing and Contrasting "Click, Clack, Moo" and "Giggle, Giggle, Quack"

I haven't been here for a while as a content creator (other than Friday FreeBEES posts on the Speechie Freebies account). I would like that to change as I really enjoy creating free materials for all of you! Now that my wedding is over, there is no more wedding planning in the way! Hopefully you will see a lot more of me around!



At the beginning of last year, I started off the third week with two incredible books by Doreen Cronin: "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type" and "Giggle, Giggle, Quack"! Both books have characters with fun personalities, some shared characters, and both take place on a farm! However, there are some great differences between them as well! That is why I created a simple venn diagram to compare and contrast the two books!

You can download the freebie over at my blog by clicking the venn diagram image below!

http://consonantlyspeaking.com/posts/2014/09/creating-content-again-for-speechie-freebies


I wanted to use more literature in my sessions, so my vocabulary groups did a lot of comparing and contrasting of books in the same series! There are more books in the "Click, Clack, Moo" series, including a Halloween themed one! I can't wait to check that one out this year! I hope you find this freebie helpful in your own practice!
