Week in Review

It's Sunday night, and I'm just getting around to recapping last week's therapy activities after a pretty restful weekend.
Monday/Tuesday are my "5-Minute Days".  I'm still using flowers for the students to track how many times they've said their target because I haven't had time to make leaves with the die machine.

 I let the students use "Articulate It!" as a listening station while they played "Treasure Hunt".  It doesn't matter to them whether or not they have someone to play against, they just like to play a game!  The student listened to their target 3 times, then rolled the die and moved that number of spaces.
 I have a few students that are seen individually on Tuesdays (just because that's how the schedule worked out).  With those students, we played "Treasure Hunt".  One student got to play an additional game.  Since Thursday was "Talk Like a Pirate Day", he got to play "Pop Up Pirate"!
Wednesday and Thursday we played "Pirate Bingo", which was a freebie from LyndaSLP123.  The students said their targets, then picked a pirate.  They described what their pirate looked like, and confirmed the correct picture when a student said they had it on their board.  Most of the groups got to play "blackout" instead of "bingo".  I put the pirate cards in an empty tissue box to keep them from peeking. We used "Chipper Chat" chips to mark the pirate that was called.


 The book fair is in town!!!  I was so excited to see "There was an Old Lady who Swallowed Some Books!' and  the new "bear" book:  "Bear Says Thanks".  I love this series from Karma Wilson.  AND, Jenn from "Crazy Speech World" is working on companion activities!  I also indulged in a couple of books for myself:  "The Paris Wife" and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time".
 Friday, after we played "Treasure Hunt", one of my students worked on his /r/ sound while playing "Grammar Wonderland" from McGraw Hill.  I snagged this app when it was free last year.  The students really enjoy playing it.
What did you do last week?
