Pirate Pronouns

During the last two weeks of school, I've been using a pirate theme in my sessions.  The kids have been having lots of fun with it!  Many of my kids have been working on the pronouns "He" and "She."  To target this objective, I created these adorable boy/girl pirates with my Cricut Expression (They're from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge).  I also created some pirate-themed object cards.  We took turns giving objects to the pirates and practicing pronoun use (e.g., "She has the spyglass" or "He has the map").

Don't have a Cricut?  No need to worry!  Here's a free printable version that I created:

You can find this activity over at Carrie's Speech Corner.  While you're there, don't forget to leave me a comment! :)

Adult Cognitive/Medication Management Freebie

As many of you know from following my blog, I have been in a rehabilitation hospital this summer working with adults. I have received many requests for the items I have been making for use with my adults to be placed in my TPT store. I decided to make this a freebie for all of you. I made these prescription bottle labels and placed them on prescription bottles that were donated by a local pharmacy. Beads were used in place of real medications. Press the picture below to head on over to my blog to read more about this adult freebie.

Also these phonological awareness activities have really helped my kiddos who use phonological processes become more aware of sounds in various positions in each word.

So that's it!  Here's a preview below.

"There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish"

If you're an SLP or a teacher, you probably have a "There Was an Old Lady..." book or two.  If you like those books, you'll want to hear about this week's Book of the Week!

I think There Was an Old Pirate Who Swallowed a Fish is my new favorite version of characters swallowing things they really shouldn't!  To accompany the book, I created these free printable story telling/sequencing cards to accompany:  

There's also an old pirate to feed!  Head on over to Carrie's Speech Corner to download this freebie!  Hope you enjoy!! :)

Most Frequently Used Words: Sorted for R

I've been giving more thought to which words I choose for articulation practice lately, by considering the frequency of use of the word in addition to the position and vocalic context.

Summer is a great time for me to get organized for the coming, to start, I've created a "Frequently Used R Words" list sorted by initial, medial, final position and blends.

You can pick it up here.

It was a huge help to me when I was organizing my summer practice packets too!  Click here if you still need to pick one up.

Speech on the Beach (Summer Activities for Artic Practice at Home)

Phew, summer is finally here!  Be sure to send your artic kiddos home with activities—fun ones that they’ll actually do—so you aren’t starting all over again in September!
Print out a copy of the instructions and the calendar for each student.  Then, make a word list with words grouped in sets of three.  You will need to create a word set for each week your kiddos are out of school. 

I’d suggest using words that you know they have just about mastered (80% or higher) and there is no need to stick with only one target.  The purpose is to get automaticity with words that are nearly there to keep skills sharp, encourage carry-over and, hopefully, to get some generalization.

A word list for initial “l” might look like this for one month:
June 9-15:          look, like, luck
June 16-22:        lunch, lip, lid
June 23-29:       last, long, low
June 30-July 6:   lick, lap, loud

You can pick up your free copy here.

Enjoy your time off!
