10 Fat Turkeys!

Happy (3 days until) Thanksgiving!! Are you working this week or are you enjoying some relaxing time with your family? This is the first time in 5 years that I don't have the week off so I am still on the hunt for Thanksgiving activities. I shared this activity on my blog and thought some of you may be working this week and need a fun little activity to help with your lesson planning.
This activity packet was designed to go with the book 10 Fat Turkeys by Tony Johnston. The activity packet includes turkey visuals to use with the story and an emergent reader/ counting coloring book for the kids to create!
My kiddos had a great time with this activity last week! You can download this activity here!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Acorns Everywhere

Hi Everyone! If you follow Carrie's Speech Corner, you may have seen me mention that I run a weekly group with an Occupational Therapist.  We came up with this activity to promote fine motor objectives after reading the book "Acorns Everywhere."  Some of my groups absolutely LOVE doing crafts so I adapted the activity to meet the needs of my students!


I printed the acorn top and bottom on cardstock and had kids color them in and cut them out. Then I punched holes along the adjoining edges and had them lace together with yarn:


You could modify this activity for pretty much any target! Head on over to my blog page for some ideas!

The student simply uses the word bank to complete fill-in-the-blank sentences.  Each answer will contribute a letter to solve a riddle at the end.

Regular and Irregular Past Tense Sentences


Fall Irregular Past Tense Verb sentences

I've been working on regular and irregular past tense verb with one of my clients.  So I made these worksheets for us to use.  Firstly, I introduced the rule of regular past tense ('ed), then we discussed exceptions to the rules.  After a few sessions of practice, I read these sentences aloud to see if my client could determine which sentence "sounded" correct.  Once I determined that he could "hear" what "sounded" correct in my speech, then I gave him an opportunity to read each sentence quietly to himself and determine which he thought was correct (this was done during a different therapy session).  After each sheet was completed, he read each sentence aloud to see if any of his answers changed.  This way I was able to determine the following:  1) Does he notice correct/incorrect grammar in my speech?, 2) Does he notice correct/incorrect grammar when he is reading silently?, 3) Does reading aloud change/improve his ability to identify correct/incorrect grammar?.  Then I compared his performance of this activity to his own conversational grammar.  This way I knew which areas still needed to be targeted.

Feel free to use these sheets any way you wish.  They could also be good independent or homework tasks for students.

There are two sheets, on one for regular and one for irregular past tense.  

Find your freebie here!

Enjoy

Turkey Categories

Gooble Gobble! It's about to Turkey Time! Have your little gobblers sort feathers onto the correct turkey by category!

Mayflower Inferences!


Mayflower “Influences” is a simple activity that contains 18 inference cards (see examples below).  Each inference card has 4 objects that indicate an object or a place.  The objective is to correctly guess what that object/place is.  For each correct answer the student either keeps the card or receives a number of points.  The student with the most points at the end, wins.  (You can also use this activity for individual therapy or for larger groups of students you can make teams).
What can be targeted?
You can work on category naming, problem solving/reasoning skills, inferencing, or even auditory memory skills in this activity (of course articulation skills can also be targeted in this activity via reading or at conversation level).
Simply print, cut, laminate (if you are planning to reuse) and play!
Enjoy!

Feeling Out Emoticons



Think about how many times you’ve added a  ;)  to be sure the recipient understood that you weren’t totally serious.  Would you have sent the same text/email if you couldn’t add the wink?  Probably not. 

I’ve put together an assortment of emoticon cards with their definition on the back.  They’re a great way to discuss social cues because they break down facial expressions into their most salient elements.  They’re also a great way to generate discussions on feelings and emotions.  Or put together a number of sentences and change the emoticon at the end.  How does this change the meaning of the message?


For your FREE emoticon cards, click here.
