Week in Review: 03/13/2015


I started this linky so that SLPs could go to 1 place to get ideas for therapy. Write a post about either what you did this week, or what you have planned for next week. All I ask is that you share a link back to my blog in your post.
(This post includes direct links to the products. Free products are indicated.)

Theme of the week: St. Patrick's Day

5 Minute Day:

For the independent station, I used Lucky Speech Reinforcement Game (Free from Lauren LaCour).
I thought I was being smart by printing out 2 of the pages on 1 sheet, but it made the leprechaun cards with the writing a little hard to read. Otherwise, it worked great!

Preschool Language:
I'm getting a lot of use out of Crazy Speech World's St. Patrick's Day No Prep Speech Therapy Activities:
Categorizing
Daubing after an activity
I also used the "Shamrock Scenes Cut & Glue" (no picture) to work on following directions using "on" and "under" as well as vocabulary.
 
I used part of my "St. Patrick's Grammar Dice" (You can find these free from LessonPix) to work on making complete sentences.

School –Aged Language:
I paired my first attempt at making materials (FREE!) with the story included in Speechy's On Topic Packet!  I've gotta admit: I had no idea how to work with this goal with one of my students, and this is the perfect thing!
 I started using Nicole Allison's Leveled Grammar Activities with some of my students. This is worth Every. Single. Penny.
 My St. Patrick's Grammar Dice (Lessonpix) made several appearances in various ways. In the picture below, the student rolled the dice and made up a sentence using the pictures. I wrote down, word for word, what he said, then had him read it and decide if it was grammatically correct. (I have some Easter dice in the Sharing Center.)
Game Day:
I could not wait to play this game with my 2nd & up students:
Make a Rainbow Stick Game  by Mia McDaniel (a.k.a. Putting Words in Your Mouth) is a freebie that my kids absolutely loved! One of my kids even suggested that we also add up the points on the sticks to see who had the most so there could be more than one winner. Instead of using "regular" popsicle sticks or tongue depressors, I used colored craft sticks (from the dollar store) and wrote numbers with Sharpies.
Simply Speech's Articulation Necklaces was the inspiration for the activity my Kinders & 1st Graders enjoyed:
She has /r/ and /r/ blends and /k/ and /g/ available for purchase.

Craftivity:
I took the craftivity from Nicole J at Teaching's a Hoot. I modified it so that my student put a cotton ball on the cloud  every time she said a word. I used Lessonpix to make pictures of words she missed to put on the different colors. You can find the free activity here.
My preschool/kinder language kids sequenced the activity.

There won't be a "Week in Review" next week since I'll be on Spring Break. Hope everyone has a good week!

  2. I have had Nicole's leveled grammar intervention on my wish list since I saw it. I didn't purchase anything during the recent sale as I have been trying hard to exercise some restraint! It looks so fabulous and a real time saver.
    As always, it looks like much fun and learning happened in your speech room this week. I wish I could go on sabbatical and visit all the speech rooms of all the bloggers I follow.
