5 Minute Day:
We were all about Earth Day on Monday & Tuesday! One station used Earth Roll & Cover, which is part of 3 Dinosaurs' Earth Day Learning Pack. I used my magnetic poms as markers.
For another station, I used "Earth Day" from Super Duper's Holiday & Seasonal Chipper Chat.
I started out using Recycle It: Irregular Past Tense Verbs (The Speech Chicks...FREE!). We just didn't pay any attention to the words on the cards.
For this week's homework, I used Earth Day Articulation (Teach Speech 365: FREE!, as seen in the above picture. I ended up using the blank page that is included, and writing the words that the student had trouble with.
On Wed., one of my students asked to play "Funny Bunny". I usually don't let the students dictate the activity, but I really love playing the game, and seeing the kids play it. So...out of the closet it came! I ended up using it for all of Thursday, too.
Because of a meeting, there was no preschool inclusion this week. For the pull-out session, we did some following directions, made a book using the carrier phrase: "The recycle bin is (color)" (again by 3 Dinosaurs), and did the lifeguard/teacher Cut, Sort, & Glue (Miss Speechie).
My older language student has a hard time with idioms. I used Spring Time Idioms Activity Pack from The Dabbling Speechie (Another freebie!), and let the student choose whether we played a matching game or Go Fish with the cards. We ended up playing both of them.
Wednesday was the local Special Olympics. One of my former students lit the torch; I saw a youtube clip, and he did so great! Before the kids left for the event, they were greeted in the hallways by every student in the whole school:
On Thursday, my school had a climbing wall brought in for the students who had met their reading challenge. There were some good times, and some tears.
One of my students is a huge Tennessee sports fan. We had a discussion about the new basketball coach, and he hadn't seen this clip yet, so of course I had to put it on the Smartboard:
