FALLing For Plurals: Freebie!

Hi Friends!

I. Love. Fall. (and pretty much everything about it!) And I especially love incorporating seasons and themes into therapy! I have more than a few students working on plurals right now-both regular and irregular. I made a quick set of fall-themed plural flashcards to use, and they have been a big hit! You can download them for FREE below, and read about how I've been using them and other items to teach plurals in my therapy!

Happy Fall, Ya'll!


Hi! This is Manda and Shanda from Twin Speech.  We are happy to be over at Speechie Freebies again this month.  Lately, our students can't seem to get enough of playdough in our therapy room, so we put together some brand new playdough mat documents and also updated our older Speech Sounds Playdough Mats document that targeted the early speech sounds of B, M, K and G.  Please re-download when you get a chance if you previously purchased it because you will find that it has expanded greatly in size and useful content and that it now covers all of the speech sounds and the letters from A to M! Here's a direct check and see if you have previously purchased it. 
8-10-13 Play Dough Mats-B,M, K, & G  
To add to our playdough therapy time, we cooked up some of our own homemade play dough and the students loved it!  We put the smell of cinnamon in one batch and the smell of apple in the second batch.  These two batches of playdough have been fitting in perfectly with our fall-themed articulation and letter recognition targeted therapy sessions this past September and October!

All of this playdough fun inspired our latest freebie for you!  The freebie are the recipes for how to make cooked or uncooked playdough. They both work great and are fun to do at home or even with a student at work! It is your choice on which one you would like to try!  Click HERE to immediately download the recipes from Teachers Pay Teachers or just right click on the pictures provided here and print them off.  Slide3 Slide2 

Also, you may be interested to know that our latest playdough mat document targeting the digraphs of /SH/, /CH/, and /TH/ sound and words is 50% off right now!  To pick it up at that super cheap price within the next 24 hours, just click on the picture below or click HERE.

We tried to cover every speech student so we decided to make Alphabet Playdough Mats for the whole entire alphabet!  We broke the alphabet up into two sets. The first set covers the letters A to M and the second set covers the letters N to Z.  Grab them today to help increase articulation of these sound and to increase letter recognition with your students.  They will have so much fun learning as they move and create!

Pronouns at Recess

Once again, I find myself blogging about pronouns. I spend most days talking about pronouns at least twice if not more. I typically do this by drawing a boy and girl stick figure with various articulation and verb card decks. It's an easy way to keep my therapy table from getting loaded down with clutter. However, I recently decided to add in a little technology to the mix using my projector.

This simple little slideshow is designed to be used with PowerPoint on either a Smartboard, projection screen, or a computer. You just click view slideshow. 

Students are given a choice of pronoun at the bottom of each slide for either labeling or developing a sentence based on what they see.

Sequencing Minibook for Halloween Fun!

I work on 3-step sequencing frequently, but my students are often at very different levels.  This seasonal mini-book will give you lots of options for addressing this common goal at a variety of levels.

Level 1:  black & white mini-books contain both pictures and text
Level 2: color mini-book; contains text but the student cuts, arranges and pastes pictures in the book
Level 3:  color mini-book; student cuts, arranges and pastes pictures in the book and then adds the accompanying text

Books are easily folded from a single sheet of paper (great fine motor practice!)

This month, I've got a no prep solution for October. You get 10 different worksheets that target a bunch of different speech/language skills. 

Here's an example of a worksheet:

Auditory Memory: Associated Words and Digits Recall Sheet

Here is a basic sheet you can use when informally assessing or when working on auditory memory activities.  It's a basic sheet created so you do not have to reinvent the wheel and is not meant as a standardized measure.

The first section targets on associated words a student can immediately recall or recall after a delay.  You a can also provide the words and have the students add additional associated words to the group for recall as well.

The second section is the digits recall.  It's super basic and really just a way to give you a sense of how your student takes in, holds and synthesizes auditory information that is NOT heavily language based.  It's a great way to take the "language" piece out of it to see if memory or receptive language is really affected auditory memory.

SLP Data Sheet

At the beginning of every school year, I make a "Data Collection" binder to stay organized and make progress monitoring and data collection easy throughout the year. This year, I made a new data sheet based on what I liked and didn't like about previous ones I've used.
To learn a ton about how I stay organized, take data, manage my caseload, and store some of my activities, click here to read my SLP FAQ Organization post!

Thanks for reading and happy organizing!
