Social Skills Round #2

While my husband enjoyed the Superbowl, the dogs and I thought up new ideas for my social skills group. We decided that football games are a good time to reminisce about the good old days when I did inclusion groups last year. Some memories were good and some were not quite as great....

But what a great way to to talk about what we are expected to do in the classroom! Students see things like these actions all the time in classrooms and they leave a HUGE impression. I imagine some may see worse and some may see better depending on the make-up of the classroom.

My Speech Snow Globe Craftivity!

Happy Wednesday! How's the weather where you are living? It's been really nice here in Florida, even a little chilly. I decided to jump on the cold weather theme and created a speech snow globe craftivity!
Included in this packet is a color and black and white version of the snow globe. I found the snow globe clipart from Teacher's Clipart store on TpT. It is purposely left as a simple template so you can use it for just about any goal you are targeting. 
  Last week I used this with my preschool articulation students. I download target words from Mommy Speech Therapy and had the students practice their words or put them into a sentence before gluing them onto their snow globe!
They turned out really cute! I sent them home so they could practice the words in their snow globe that week with their families. You can download this craftivity for FREE in my TpT store here!

Groundhog's Day Freebie

Is winter here to stay or is spring on it's way? I know that many of you on the east coast are probably hoping for some spring weather after the snow storm you got. Though winter has been pretty mild here in the Pacific Northwest, I am hoping to see some spring weather early this year.

With Groundhog's day coming up, use these freebie to talk about vocabulary related to this day and then have your students vote if they think we're in for another 6 weeks of bad winter weather or if nice spring weather will be here soon.

Seeing Hearts

As the weather turns colder (and snow finally decides to hit), I am looking towards the end of winter. I think this time of the year is hard in a way that can come as a surprise. IEPs are manageable and the assessment frenzy is still a little bit off in the distance. It's just the thinking process that starts now. The knowing that in a few months I will be sending students off to middle school or elementary school with goals that someone else has to use. Will they understand why I did things the way I did? Or will they think that my goals are terrible? I know that I was certainly guilty of not liking the way things were written by one of the SLPs who left my school last year. 

It brings me back to my social skills groups. Thinking about how other people perceive you is hard. Yet, we have to do it all the time. So why not get a head start on one of the trickiest holidays of all?

Take Heart! is a simple social skills activity to identify which action is an expected/unexpected behavior. When they pull out an unexpected behavior, students can use their predicting skills to come up with possible outcomes. They can also tell you a way to fix the unexpected behavior.

New Year's Resolutions

Welcome, 2016!  I hope everyone is enjoying their break as much as I am!

I often go into time off with the best intentions of getting ahead with therapy plans and prep, but too often those plans are (happily) waylaid by family time and holiday treats.  I'm hoping this happens to you too!

So, here's a print and go activity you can use during those first days back which will allow you to put off planning guilt free.  Help students understand what a resolution is and create a couple for several different settings--home, speech or school, with family and friends and just for themselves.

It was designed in color, but prints almost as cute in black and white.  For your copy, click here.
