I'm joining up with other SLPs at Speech is Sweet for her weekly linky. It's super easy to link up: just write a blog post about the book that you're using this week, along with how you're using it in therapy. Then, link up!
While I was at the ASHA Convention, I had the opportunity to watch a LessonPix demo. I had seen the site, but hadn't taken the time to see what it was all about. Oh.My. This site does just about anything you could want to do! There are so many pictures in the database, but if you need a picture that isn't already in the library, all you have to do is contact Lori & she'll get it to you as soon as she can! Case in point: there wasn't a picture of a barber in the library, so I made a request, and I had an email right after Christmas Break that it had been included!
This week, we're reading The Wild Toboggan Ride (Suzan Reid). Grandpa is hesitant to let Nikki go down the hill in her toboggan one more time, but as he stamps his foot to keep warm, he trips over his long scarf and ends up on the toboggan. That begins a wild ride through the town, starting a chain of townspeople who end up on the ride.
I used LessonPix to create a bundle of sorts to use with my students this week. To download, click on the title of the activity. You will be taken to the activity in LessonPix, then you can download. (You can get a free 30 day trial to try it out; a year's subscription is only $36! Bill gave my special ed coordinator and a few SLPs in the system a remote demo; as a result, my coordinator is purchasing licenses for all of us!!!)
I also made some sheets to use for homework. Again, this is in jpeg format, but if you want it, let me know! I did a sheet for /r, s, l, k&g, f/, and 'sh'.
To see what books other SLPs are using this week, go to Speech Is Sweet and see who linked up!
