With Halloween just round the corner I thought that maybe you could use some quick and easy vocabulary cards? I don't know about you but I pretty much always need vocabulary cards!

When you are talking with your students about their costumes and trick or treating, then these will be ideal to use as prompt cards.

To download them now go to my TPT store now.

Happy Halloween!

Candy Critic Notes

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.

You can see more therapy ideas and pick up your free treat here.

Candy Corn Multi-step Sequencing

 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! 

You can use this activity in a number of ways.

Squash the Spider, Don't Spill the Cider!

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.

Before/After Fill-in the Blank Sheet!

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!

Learning Targets Freebie

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. 

To grab this freebie, head on over to Speech Room News!
