Hoppy Easter: Jokes to share and strengthen vocabulary

Jokes are one of my favorite methods for addressing multiple meaning words and humor with my clients. Most of my language impaired students struggle with language based humor and require explicit instruction in why jokes are funny.  

Head on over to my blog to pick up some fun Easter themed jokes to share with your students or clients.

Get Your Fun Pronoun FREEBIE Today! "Me" vs. "I" Pronoun Puddle Jump Activity


Step into cute rubber boots and download this freebie to get your students jumping into correct pronoun use this springtime! This FREEBIE was created in 2014, but has been revised this year.  Please take a new look and download it for your students today. The directions are easy! Just spread out the two puddles out on the floor and ask your students to jump to the correct puddle that contains either the "I" or the "ME" pronoun on it to correctly finish the sentence read from the card.


An "I" and "Me" pronoun teaching page, colorful puddles and teaching cards, and also an ink- saving card and puddle version in black and white are included in the download.


  Slide15   Slide14   Slide16           

Kids love to jump into puddles! In fact, this fun activity was inspired by Manda's own toddler when she saw how much fun he had jumping from one puddle to the next after a rain storm last spring. Give your students this fun opportunity to learn about when and how to use their "I" and "ME" pronouns while they move in a fun way too!

Zig Zags for Upper/Lowercase Matching

I have so many students that come to me with language or articulation goals that end up really struggling with phonemic awareness skills as well.  We work on syllables, sound/letter association and identifying the first/last sounds in words.

I know lots of you are working on these as well, or have little ones of your own at home.  This is a fun way to work on matching upper/lower case letters and fine motor skills.  It's easy to put together and really fun to do!

Simply lace the yarn from the left side of the Zig Zag (also reinfoces left to right orientation for reading) and match the two letters.  If your students have fine motor difficulties, are very young,  have a real fear of failure (something I come up against frequently) or just need additional drill, try the "Green Light" version which allows for perfect practice since you lace straight across to make matches.

This FREEBIE includes three different Zig Zags divided by the typical order of introduction.

Watch out for dinosaurs!

Hey everyone! It's Miss Thrifty SLP with one of my favorite therapy themes for my younger students today. Dinosaurs! 

Rawr! is a set of drill cards I created after I came up with the idea to have a stomping chant to help us practice our pronouns. Students have to fill in the blank with a pronoun (usually I give them a binary choice to start with) and place it on the sorting mat.

My personal favorites are the open-ended cards that they can sort either way depending on which cave-person needs more cards. If you want to learn more about this freebie and the chant, head on over to my blog by clicking on the picture below. 


Last March, I made this fun little game for my kiddos.  It's a simple reinforcement activity that can be used for any goals really.  It's perfect for learning holiday vocabulary or simply as a fun quick game of tic-tac-toe for your 5 min articulation kiddos.  You can use chocolate covered gold coins or rainbow colored skittles as tokens if you want! There are three different versions of this game so you can use it as a type of bingo also if you wanted!

Want to save trees or don't have access to a color printer?  Just open it up on your tablet and play on your screen using pom poms or something soft as tokens.  Easy peasy!

Have fun and grab it here

Celebrating Dr. Seuss with Color Sorting!

Happy Seuss Week! It is always so much fun celebrating Dr. Seuss in speech each year. My students enjoy reading the stories, making some crafts, and of course eating some Seuss-tastic snacks! I wanted to share one of the activities I have been using with my preschool kids this week. 
I created this color sorting mat using the colors that are in the Goldfish Colors bag! I gave each student a laminated sorting mat and a cup full of fish. In addition to sorting, we worked on color names and counting, too! Of course this activity was not complete without a reading of Dr. Seuss' famous One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish!
You can download a free copy of this sorting mat in my Teachers Pay Teachers store here!

Shamrockin' QR Codes Compare and Contrast

It's March! That means lots of green, shamrocks, and thinkin' about spring. Maybe not everywhere...but I'm hoping if I think hard enough, spring will magically appear! I love snow days just as much as the next person, but I think I'm ready for some nicer weather.

This month, I have a re-vamped freebie from last year. I added some cards and a sentence mat. You need a QR code scanning app in order to use this one. There are 18 cards with QR codes. When scanned, your students see 2 items that they must compare and contrast. 

Head on over to my blog to grab your copy! 

Happy March!

L-W and L-Y Minimal Pair Words

If you have been around toddlers and preschoolers you are probably familiar with "gliding." What is gliding? Gliding is a phonological process that affects the /r/ and /l/ sounds. Children with this phonological process substitute the /r/ and /l/ sounds with the /w/ or /y/ sounds.
"yabbit" or "wabbit" for rabbit
"yion" or "wion" for lion
We made a packet with L-W and L-Y minimal pair words to bring attention to this phonological process. Please follow the instructions in the packet to help your child or student discriminate between these sounds.
