Celebrating Dr. Seuss with Color Sorting!

Happy Seuss Week! It is always so much fun celebrating Dr. Seuss in speech each year. My students enjoy reading the stories, making some crafts, and of course eating some Seuss-tastic snacks! I wanted to share one of the activities I have been using with my preschool kids this week. 
I created this color sorting mat using the colors that are in the Goldfish Colors bag! I gave each student a laminated sorting mat and a cup full of fish. In addition to sorting, we worked on color names and counting, too! Of course this activity was not complete without a reading of Dr. Seuss' famous One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish!
You can download a free copy of this sorting mat in my Teachers Pay Teachers store here!

Shamrockin' QR Codes Compare and Contrast

It's March! That means lots of green, shamrocks, and thinkin' about spring. Maybe not everywhere...but I'm hoping if I think hard enough, spring will magically appear! I love snow days just as much as the next person, but I think I'm ready for some nicer weather.

This month, I have a re-vamped freebie from last year. I added some cards and a sentence mat. You need a QR code scanning app in order to use this one. There are 18 cards with QR codes. When scanned, your students see 2 items that they must compare and contrast. 

Head on over to my blog to grab your copy! 

Happy March!

L-W and L-Y Minimal Pair Words

If you have been around toddlers and preschoolers you are probably familiar with "gliding." What is gliding? Gliding is a phonological process that affects the /r/ and /l/ sounds. Children with this phonological process substitute the /r/ and /l/ sounds with the /w/ or /y/ sounds.
"yabbit" or "wabbit" for rabbit
"yion" or "wion" for lion
We made a packet with L-W and L-Y minimal pair words to bring attention to this phonological process. Please follow the instructions in the packet to help your child or student discriminate between these sounds.

St. Patrick's Day: Capture the Gold {FREEBIE}

I wrote about my valentine day blow dart game on my blog last month.  My clients had such a good time with this activity, that I made up a FREEBIE version for St. Patrick's Day that I am really excited to share with you.  

You will need straws, some Q-tips and the leprechaun targets.  Students take turns putting a cotton swab in the straw and shooting it at the leprechauns in an attempt to win the pot of gold.  A great way to get a lot of repetitions in a session.  Want to get your copy?

Speech Fines: A Behavior Management Idea!

Most of my cuties at my elementary site have articulation goals, so we try to get LOTS of productions in during the session.  If one little lady or gent begins to get off task aka silly, then it affects the productivity of the whole group.  After giving warnings and many “please stop talking, messing around, getting out of your seat, etc.”, an idea popped in my head (this happens from time to time, lol).  All of a sudden, I blurt out, the next time I have to ask you to stop__________,  you will have a speech fine and owe me 10 words to practice.  Well, the next time came and I said “you just got a speech fine.”  Read off 10 of your words.  It worked!  I got 10 productions (woot!) and the rest of the session went without a speech fine or off task behavior.

I made this FREEBIE set of "speech fines" to use during my sessions.  I also included language cards and a blank sheet to customize.  The beauty of my speech fines are that if the student gets a "fine" he/she may have to say 10 words or 60 words!!  This stops unwanted behavior and gets the kids to practice their goals (which is why they are there in the first place).

Sticky Words Freebie!

Do your kids have trouble producing complex sentences like mine do?  I'm hoping that by incorporating specific words that encourage complexity into my everyday therapy, that they'll eventually start to get the hang of it.  Soooo, we made a "sticky words" board!

Sticky is just a term that I use with my students to mean transition words/phrases or conjunctions.  We call it this because they glue words and phrases together to help give our thoughts flow and meaning.  Read more about it and find out how to grab it for yourself at my blog!
