St. Patrick's Day Pronoun Practice!

Wednesday, March 11, 2015
Less than one week till that wee little leprechaun comes to visit! Have your speech sessions been filled with St. Patrick's Day activities? Green and gold clovers? Leprechauns and glitter? I love a good thematic unit! I created this St. Patrick's Day Pronoun unit to add some festive spirit to my pronoun lessons. The fun part is that I have been able to target more than just pronouns with this activity. 
Check it out...
Included in this packet are both black & white and colored pictures. I laminate the colored pictures and attach Velcro to keep it as a sturdy, use again activity (ideal for whole group.) I like to let the students have their own black and white copies they can cut, color, and glue (perfect for independent work and informal assessments.)
Here is how I use this activity:


I like to have my students practice following directions as they demonstrate their pronoun knowledge.
For example: “Give the gold coin to her.” (one step direction)
“Give the fiddle to him then the clover to her.” (two step directions)
“They want something green that they can put on top their heads” (inferencing)
This is also a great activity to use along with the story, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover. A lot of the same story vocabulary is used in this activity. 


You can download a copy of this activity in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store here!
Have fun celebrating!!

Let's Yapp About That App!

Saturday, March 7, 2015
One of the things that I love about being a speech blogger is that I get to test out and report on apps that are relevant to our line of work. It's no secret that iPads are a huge part of our therapy lives these days. Apps have become key tools in a lot of our therapy sessions, so why not learn more about what apps are out there? In July of 2014, Yapp Guru contacted me about becoming an "expert" app reviewer and joining their team! Haven't hear of Yapp Guru? You are missing out on a great website!
Yapp Guru is a website where other SLPs and OTs post reviews and opinions on apps. This is a great site to visit if you are debating on spending $60 on an app that you just aren't sure is worth the money. This is also a great site to go to if you are looking for an app to target a specific age group or goal. Don't stress, we have done all the work for you! They have a voting feature where you can vote on apps so your opinion counts, too! We are having a little March Madness Contest over at Yapp Guru and challenging each other to write more reviews this month. You can check out my profile and read my app reviews here!

This month, I have my Speech & Language Spring Bundle on sale! Want to get your March and April lesson plans set now? Snag this bundle while it is 50% off! Check out what's included…
Need some quick print and go homework sheets for this holiday season? This packet includes 10 adorable Spring and Easter themed homework coloring sheets. There are blanks provided for you or your students to write in their own targets to take home and practice.

This is an open-ended game (with an adorable Easter theme) to use to target any speech and language goal!
Print as many copies of the points/bonus cards as you wish. After your student(s) practice a target, have them choose a card from the pile. They either are awarded points, an extra turn, the game order is reversed or they lose a turn. This is an great way to spice up "skill and drill" therapy!!
Also included in this packet is a game board and blank bunny cards so you can create your own based on student need!

This is a fun & festive way to work on pronouns with your students this season. Included in this packet are interactive worksheets that target him/her/he/she/them/they! This activity is purposely left somewhat open ended so you can use it as you need. 
Here is how I use this activity:
I like to have my students practice following directions as they demonstrate their pronoun knowledge.
For example: “Give the butterfly to her.” (one step direction)
“Give the candy to him then the chick to her.” (two step directions)
“They want something blue that keeps you dry from the rain.” (inferencing)
Included in this packet are both black and white and colored pictures. I laminate the colored pictures and attach Velcro to keep it as a sturdy, use again activity (ideal for whole group.) I like to let the students have their own black and white copies they can cut, color, and glue (perfect for independent work and informal assessments.)

This is a wonderful collection of speech and language story extension activities to go with the story, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick. This activity pack does not contain the story and is not affiliated with the book. 
Here is what's inside: 
Pages 4-7: Large story sequencing Activity 
Print, cut, and laminate. Have your students “feed” the lady (page 4) as you read the story. These can also be used as vocabulary cards.
Pages 8-10: Student Story Sequence activity
Let your students demonstrate their story sequencing skills as they put the story in order. Pictures are black and white so they can color in the pictures when they are done. 
Pages 11-15: Cover The Dots!
Have your students cover the dots with chips, markers or even better- candy as they correctly practice a target word or answer a question!
Page 16: Color the Story
Have your students work on vocabulary as they color in the pictures as they read about them in the story. 
Page 17: Story Scavenger Hunt
