Pretty as a Princess....

I'm not quite sure why, but for some reason I always seem to end up getting several new girls on my caseload at the end of every year. The Peacock Princess activity is a mixture of several different targets that adds much needed variety to all of the more masculine-themed products. It includes alphabet matching (upper & lower case letters with diagraphs included)/phonemic awareness if you chose to print out more than one set of the letters; past & present tense verb agreement; pronouns with a sorting mat; naming; and a few cards for articulation review. 


I love that this is still one of my go-to materials even though I created it several years ago. You can head on over to my blog to learn more about this activity. Simply click on the picture below!

An Imagination Freebie

Hey SLPeeps!

If you're like me, 2 weeks of state standardized testing has me longing for the outdoors! We've been doing a unit on Imagination, and I'm anxiously waiting Wednesday, when we're free to resume our regular schedules and make some noise! I made a quick freebie to go along with this unit that's super quick and easy! The students simply use their imaginations to add to the shapes and create pictures! We then share and discuss how sometimes people see things differently!




Click on the link below to head over to my blog to snag this freebie, and read more about what we're doing this week and how I incorporate this freebie into speech!


Happy Spring!

Baaa-utiful Speech for Antonyms!

These sweet little lambs are ready to help your kiddos practice antonyms with an adorable and EASY craft!



First, I have my students say the opposite pair (or I may be modelling at this point) and daub the picture.  Next, I have them go through the pairs one more time, adding a cotton ball to create a wooly lamb effect.  (Tip:  Cut cotton balls in half to provide a flat sticking surface.  Use double stick tape if drying time is an issue in your room or glue stick.)

Use these lambs with farm themes, Sheep on a Jeep or during the spring!

Think Green!

April is one of my favorite months of the year. There are tiny little wildflowers hiding in the grass and the sweet songs of birds float through the air. It's the perfect time to remember that we have so much beauty surrounding us if we just take the time to notice the small things. It's also a beauty that we must protect. 

So beauty, inspiration, music.......It all led me to create a simple mobile craft activity for Earth Day. I recommend watching a brief video on recycling before you start this craft. My current favorite is a clip from Reading Rainbow that shows what happens to recyclables once they reach the recycling plant. There are quite a few good ones out there though.  


Once you have watched your video, it's time to talk about the "Three R's". Students get to write about what they can do to reduce, reuse, and recycle on one side. The other side is blank so you can have them draw a picture of what the action looks like once they cut the shape out.

Ten For April

April has arrived! I have really enjoyed making and using my Ten For packets and it seems that you enjoy them as well. I have two more sets (after this one) for the school year and then I'll fill in the couple that I missed earlier in the year. 


I do try to vary the skills from month to month, while keeping more common skills in there. This is what's targeted this month:


Here's an example of one of the worksheets:

Walk the Line - A No Prep Activity for Following Directions & Concepts

Interested in a simple idea to help parents target following directions and concepts? Look no further. I was in a therapy rut with a student when I thought of putting some duct tape on the floor. He loved it, my groups later loved it, and 3 weeks later the line is still there. Sometimes simple is best, right?



If you're interested in learning more about this simple idea, and in the FREE parent carryover sheet with concepts, as well as 1 & 2 step directions for this simple and fun activity, click here! See a picture of the form below:



If you're really into planning ahead, this would make a great, easy activity for summer homework packets! :)

The Best of SLP Bloggers


Are you a bit overwhelmed by the amount of SLP info out there?  Wondering how you can connect with voices that speak to you and find the topics that you need?  This winter over 70 SLP bloggers came together to create the compilation.  You'll love it!



Each blogger contributed a page featuring a sample of their writing and a link to their blog.



The vast majority of SLP blogs focus on pediatric populations (preschool-high school), provide treatment activities and address speech sound disorders and language needs.  But they also filled out a questionnaire which allowed us to create lists of specific topics/ages to make it easier to access the additional info that you really need.  Indexes are listed in the back of the book and contain clickable links.  Examples include:  fluency, autism, literacy, ESL, hearing impairment, adult populations and research.

Let's learn about conversations

Now that I am finally getting to start Superflex Takes on Rock Brain & the Unthinkables, I am also dusting off one of my favorite creations from the past, Conversation Junction. Why? I think it correlates pretty well with several of the Unthinkables and the continuation of expected vs. unexpected behaviors. I'm starting with what's expected and then we will work on more scenarios, videos, and role-plays of conversation skills. They will have their book to help them remember the expected behaviors through all of these activities. While this activity is more geared towards upper elementary, it can be modified for first and second grades if needed.
