Week in Review 04/17/15

Old School Speech
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:

5 Minute Day:
The students had 5 minutes to see if they could finish the game:
Old Lady...Frog Game Board

For my groups of 4, the extra center was the rain daub picture from A Dab of  Speech and Language for the Year (Speech is Sweet).
Preschool Language:
We did a lot of sequencing this week. My students fed the old lady as I read the story.
I used Sparklle SLP's There was an Old Lady Who  Swallowed a Frog Language Book Companion for following directions and sequencing.
We also made minibooks using Figuratively Speeching SLP's There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed-2 Emergent Readers/Minibooks. I cut out pictures from Lessonpix to go with the minibooks:

We had a rainy week, so this sheet from Queen's Speech's Structured Sentence Building was perfect.

School –Aged Language:
My lower elementary kids followed directions and answered "wh" questions using Sparklle SLP's There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Frog Language Book Companion.

My 3rd-5th graders are working hard to get ready for the state testing. I'm reviewing a social story about taking his time while testing, then he's reading a passage and answering questions. Following that,  we review the answers and he finds supporting evidence in the passage for the answers. 
 Another student used the grammar dice that I made using Lessonpix. He rolled the dice, then verbally produced a sentence. I wrote down what he said, then I read it for him. He decided if the sentence was grammatically correct, and if not, he fixed it.


Game Day:
I wish you could have seen my kids eyes when they saw this:
I took out the jewel and replaced it with stickers. For the first group, I only had 1 sticker (for the person who found the last ball), but one of my Kinders suggested that I put enough in for everybody in the group. 

Homework:
I whipped up a couple of homework sheets using Lessonpix and Word for homework for this week:

That's what the activities in my speech room looked like. What did you do, or what do you have planned to do for next week?
