Firetruck Cover Up!

Fire Safety week is right around the corner!!  Don't worry, I got you covered with an easy and fun activity to celebrate!  Woohooo!  
My kids LOVE roll and cover games…there is just something about those magnet wands they can't get enough of!  So I thought this was the perfect activity to go with my cute firefighters and firetrucks! I even included a boy AND a girl game board!

All you have to do is practice the target skill and roll this firetruck die (or a regular one, if you prefer).  Your students will cover up that many trucks on their board.  First to cover them all is the winner!  Super simple and a great way to get lots of practice in!

Articulation Data Collection for Students Freebie

Hello everyone! 

Today, I'm sharing a super easy, black and white, no prep articulation data collection freebie. I like to use it to send home so my kiddos can keep track of their progress while working at home, but it's also super awesome to use in the speech room!





Thanks for reading!

Oh nuts! An s-blend FREEBIE activity!

I love using materials that have a fall theme because it's my favorite season of the year.  I have a couple of cuties on my caseload with some persisting phonological processes, so I made a fun "squirrely" activity to keep them entertained while eliminating cluster reduction.

  http://www.thedabblingspeechie.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Slide11.png 
Use a cardboard box (best to have a box with a lid you can open, so you can get the nuts out easily) and glue/tape favorite fall paper around the box. Print the tree/squirrel template, laminate for durability and glue/tape onto the box. Then, students get to put nuts in the tree as they say their speech sounds!

Print template (pg. 3) on cardstock and laminate. Print acorns, laminate and cut out. Then, students get to put nuts in the tree as they say their speech sounds!

24 acorn nuts are included with initial and final position s-blends including pictures!!  I also included number acorns to make the game open ended or the child says their speech sound based on the number they picked.

A Fan-tastic Football Freebie!


It's football season!  Time to tailgate and root for your favorite teams!  A lot of my students, especially the boys, delight in anything that has to do with sports so this year I have a couple open-ended football reinforcement sheets.


Football Challenge (Colored helmets): Students roll the die and check off the matching box (once they’ve completed a trial). The helmet with all 5 boxes filled in first is the winning team! Bonus: Have students create a logo for each helmet and explain why it suits each team.

Football Tackle (Player Silhouettes): Have the student(s) choose their “team” by starring three (3) of the players on the sheet. Then, start rolling the die and match the number to the player, crossing out a box each time. Once the boxes are filled beneath a player, X him out because he’s been tackled! The team with the last standing player is the winner.

If you print one copy and laminate, you can use dry erase markers and save on ink!

Speech MVP Trading Cards

Hi!  I'm Kelly from Speech2u.  I'm really excited to be joining such a fantastic and knowledgeable group of SLPs on Speechie Freebies! Baseball playoffs start in a few weeks.  I'm pretty sure my team isn't making it-but love the idea of making trading cards with my clients in therapy. 

You can use these cards for articulation practice and carryover activities, expressive language, answering questions and/or to promote social language.  A lot of my clients struggle with remembering any information about others (including my names sometimes!)  Trading cards are a fun way to work on this skill in therapy.   Plus I included a game board with some additional game activities!


You can pick up your copy for HERE.

Organizing Desktop Icons

Howdy! I'm Laura from All Y'all Need, and I am so honored and excited to be part of Speechie Freebies!

I will admit that I am a fan of to-do lists, mainly because I like to mark through the tasks I accomplish. And I've even been known to get a little giddy about being able to crumple up and throw away a completed task list. But let's keep that our little secret, mmkay?

As my school district moves more towards technology, I've found something that is just as fun - an organized desktop on my computer! Now, I can keep my current and most used items on my desktop. Once I finish something, there is nothing like the feeling of filing it away or moving it to the trashcan. It's virtual crumpling!
Yes, I'm a little too overjoyed about arranging my icons. But it turned out so well for me that I made one for you!

The desktop comes in several resolution sizes. You can download the Organization Wallpaper for Desktops {Freebie} at All Y'all Need on Teachers pay Teachers. Go to All Y'all Need to find out more on how to install.

A Parrot for a Pirate


Ahoy, me Hearties!  “Talk Like a Pirate Day” is right around the corner (9/19) and a true pirate always has a trusty parrot on his shoulder.  Here’s a chance to catch one for yourself!

You will need:
A copy of the worksheet (print b&w or in color) for each student.
A die.

To play: 
Optional:  Have each student guess which parrot they will capture by circling or underlining the number adjacent to it.

The student rolls the die and matches the rolled number to the correct parrot.  The therapist or teacher asks a question.  Get it right and you can check off a box.  Once you’ve filled in all the boxes below a parrot, you’ve got a trusty sidekick!

Can be played individually or in a group.  Can be used year round with any pirate themed activities (you know you have 'em, speechies!)

You can pick up your copy here.  Enjoy!

25 Ways to Ask Kids about Their Day

The kids are all back in school and we are all wondering WHAT they are doing all day! A fabulous way to work on language skills is to ask kids what they have done today. It does not require long term memory and can usually be remembered with a little prompting from adults.



Asking these questions is great for story telling skills, past tense (grammar) and social skills.

Get your list of 25 questions free by going here.

Sports, of course!

It's been almost a month since I've truly had the opportunity to plan out a new activity for my students. Sports seemed like a natural choice with the recent start of our local high school and middle schools football season. It's also a great way to encourage younger siblings to be proud of their brothers and sisters for choosing to live an active lifestyle. 


I'm really excited about this activity as it can easily be combined with books or short reading passages. I started off with basic vocabulary lists for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, and general sports terms. Next, you have some basic questions for each of the four sports. I have included blank cards so you can write more story-specific cards as you need. I know I will be making up more questions as soon as I get my library books.
