Week in Review: 02/27/2015

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.

 I have another abbreviated post after a couple of crazy weeks with ice storms & snow. We made it to school on Monday after a 2 hour delay. 

Planned theme of the week: Snowmen All Year (Caralyn Buehner).
5 Minute Day:

For the independent station, the kids rolled the die after saying their target and then "daubed" that number of snowmen from the roll & cover sheets in Speech Made Simple's Snowmen All Year Book Companion. Since I didn't have as much room as I usually do, I had the listening station (with the iPad) on the same table.
The reason I didn't have as much room was this:

After coming in and seeing a ceiling tile in a small puddle of water on the floor, I looked at the other tiles along the outside walls. I pushed everything that was against the walls to the center of the room...just in case. 
During one of the group's 5 minute days, this happened:
One of my students said 220 /r/ words in 5 minutes with NO mistakes! This is a student who has been working on /r/ for 2 years...this is her 3rd year (the first with me). Before Christmas, she couldn't even make the /r/ sound, and now she's saying words with 100% accuracy! And, she's carrying the sound over into conversation!!! I'm going to be very surprised if she isn't ready for dismissal by the end of year, OR at the beginning of next year!

Sadly, the roll & cover was the only item from the companion packet that I got to use this week. So, I'll take the sticky off of the bag and try again next year!

What did you do this week, OR what are you planning for next week?
