I designed this activity for my secondary students to have an opportunity to rate each activity we do in order to see their perception on the difficulty level of activities we do! You can find the item HERE
Mmmmm! Who wouldn't want to be a candy critic, tasting and writing delicious candy reviews! Halloween brings lots of fun sized treats with it. Use it to your advantage by working on naming attributes! These grids (two based on common fun sized candy bar packs, one blank) will prompt students to examine their candies for shape, color, smell and feel before they even try a taste. Finish off with a mini-review.

I use token boards all the time in my therapy to help manage behavior and encourage responses. I've created some cute Halloween token board templates that you can download free by visiting my website here!
I thought this candy corn graphic was a perfect way to work on sequencing multiple steps of an action while still enjoying some holiday pictures. This packet includes 20 action cards and 2 (3 step) candy corn sequencing cards you can cut out and laminate for re-use. There are 3 action cards specifically related to Halloween. But if you can't discuss Halloween in your school, that's not a problem. Just omit them from your therapy session. You still have 17 usable action cards ready to go!
I originally designed this as a minimal pairs game for a student that omitted the adjacent consonants in /s/ blends. We would turn all the items face down and swat on our turn to see if we had squashed a "sPider" or spilled the "cider." He loved it! You can also use this with a wide variety of /s/ blend vocabulary such as: spider, squash, spill, smush, smash, swat, squish, splat or smack. For kiddos working on simple expressive language, try "boo" when you hit a spider and "uh-oh" when you spill the cider. Read my complete blog post and pick up your freebie here.
A few weeks ago I shared one of my before/after materials I use for therapy (Before/After Events freebie) on my Communication Station blog. I got a lot of feedback from many therapists about needing more before/after materials. I thought, what better way to reach more SLPs out there needing these materials than by sharing it here on Speechie Freebies?! So today I'm sharing with you my Before/After Fill-in the Blank sheet. This is different than my previous Before/After Events material (so if you want to grab that freebie also you can click on the link above). My fill in the blank sheet consists of 20 sequenced events where only one word (before or after) will fit in the blank to create a logical sentence. The nice thing about this sheet is you can send it home for homework or you can have students (readers) work on this sheet individually or in pairs while you work individually with another student in group therapy. All but the last sentence are about events most children should be familiar with. I added a football reference in the last sentence for my boys and girls who love football! Want your free copy?

Happy October! I love the fall and all that it entails...cooler weather, leaves falling, apple picking, trips to the pumpkin patch, and Halloween! The kid in me LOVES decorating for Halloween and even dressing up! In the spirit of the season, I've created a fun Jack O'Lantern themed freebie for you:
I'm back with another session in the SLP 101 series! Today's post is all about learning targets. More than likely your school building has adopted learning targets as a building so these are nothing new to you!
Learning targets make a ton of sense. Your students should definitely know what they are working on when they come to you. If you're building is already doing 'I can' statements it's an easy carryover to the speech room.
This year I made a simple sheet that lists an 'I can' statement for most of the areas we are working on.
