Cookie Swap!

Yum!  Cookies are my favorite!

I've created two card decks--one can be used open-ended for reinforcement, the other is for working on attributes skills.

Students will play one of two ways, "Go Fish" or "Old Maid" style, so little time will be spent with teaching game rules.

The cookies are very similar, but not exact, which means it requires attention to detail and some expressive language skill to make a request and get the correct match!

Looking towards 2016

While I know it's just December, I decided to make my next product focus on New Year's so I can rest just a little bit easier during Christmas break. I'm looking forward to being able to walk back into the building after New Year's and know that I have an activity ready for my toughest group---the fifth graders. 
This Would You Rather? activity is designed for practicing articulation sounds at the carryover level. It's a nice break from reading passages, but it is also a great way to practice reasoning skills. I always make my students explain the reason why they would pick X and not Y.  

You can head on over to my blog to learn more about this activity. Simply click on the picture below!

What does the fox say? Preposition game

What Does The Fox Say-Prepositions Freebie 

During the month of December, I usually whip out all my Gingerbread themed books and materials for therapy.  It's a great theme because it doesn't highlight a specific holiday/religion, but is still festive and fun!

I made this game where you try to collect the most gingerbread cookies.  If you pick up a fox, you lose a gingerbread card because he just ate your cookie!

This game can also be played in honor of the famous song "What Does The Fox Say?"
Anytime a student picks up a card that has a fox, they can sing "yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum" to the tune of that song because the fox just ate a gingerbread cookie.

This game works on building prepositional phrases in sentences, so it is a fun way to work on building utterances!

Rock, Paper, Scissor for S Blends

I recently did a huge revamp of my Rock, Paper, Scissor products which makes them easier to read and sort.  AND, by popular request, I added decks with picture prompts too!  If you own any of these, including bundles for R or S that include my Rock, Paper, Scissor games, please redownload.  You'll be so happy you did.

If you have a little one struggling with /s/ blends, download my latest freebie to try it out.  Click here.

Just like the traditional schoolyard game, rock beats scissor, paper beats rock and scissor beats paper (trust me, the kids know!).  Now we're simply slipping in a little articulation practice too!

Thankful for pronouns

November always seems to rush by in a blur of IEP meetings, regular staff meetings, special activities, and holiday gathering. It is no small wonder why I have been looking for a few quick activities to pair with fall themed books for my language groups. This activity was actually inspired my old pronoun book creation. I pulled it out a few weeks ago and decided that we still needed more structured practice. So here is a Thanksgiving creation from my speech room to yours....Hope you enjoy!

Included in this activity are four sheets for structured pronoun practice. Students have to label the person using either he or she and then decide which item that person might be thankful for during the fall. Most of the pictures are related to fall and can be used to target fall vocabulary. 

Head on over to my blog using the picture below to learn more and grab your freebie!

Articulation Production Tracker

Many say 100 productions is the ‘golden number’ for articulation drills.  Counting tallies can be tedious and sometimes using clickers or counters can get distracting.  You can use these articulation production tracker sheets to easily and quickly track up to 100 productions!

You can learn more about this freebie and grab a download at my blog :)

Functional Vocabulary Cards Sample

Hi, friends! November is upon us and that means being thankful for what we have. I'm SO thankful for this blog and the connections it has allowed me to make. It's a creative outlet and I have learned so much in the past three years. I'm coming up on my 3rd blogiversary (stay tuned for the fun involved with that). 

This month, I decided not to bring you a seasonal activity. Rather, this is one you can use year round. I have some friends working on functional vocabulary and I wanted a systematic way to teach the words, so I created a larger packet. This is a sample that can work just fine on it's own. 

I'm providing you with four rooms in a house: bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Each theme has 10 cards. You can use the cards for matching (print 2 copies) or leave the cards as a mat. It's up to you.

Here's what the cards look like: 

There is also a receptive language checklist for each set of cards that you can use to introduce the words:

Happy (early) Thanksgiving from me to you!

V-B Minimal Pair Words

We have all heard that kiddo who says "best" for "vest" or "bacuum" for "vacuum." Some kids have a difficult time producing the /v/ sound and often substitute this sound with the /b/ sound because /b/ is just so much easier to pronounce! We made a small packet with V-B minimal pair words to bring attention to the /v/ sound. Click HERE to download the packet!
