{Frenzied SLPs} Summer Speech Therapy Carryover Activities

I'm teaming up with my Frenzied SLP Friends to talk about what to send home with your kids for summer.

A Confession

Can I be honest? I rarely send anything home. I don't send something to every student I see. I will send a packet home if the parent requests it, or if I have concerns about the student losing what skills he had before the break. I find that some of my kids will actually progress over the summer if they just get a break. I think we work so hard on the sound during the year that when their brains get a break from working on it something clicks and they correct it on their own.

Taking the Easy Way Out

For those students who receive a packet, I use LessonPix. Once I get my pictures in the tray, it takes all of about 10-15 minutes to get a packet together.  For those sounds that I made packets for last year, it's just a matter of printing and putting in a folder or big envelope.

If you're not using LessonPix, you're really missing out! It's very affordable (only $36/year) and very user-friendly. The customer service is bar-none. I use it to print out pictures of words my students had trouble with during the session. I can search for the picture during therapy, save it in the tray and make a sheet for them to take home for practice in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. **Please be advised that LessonPix is for personal use only and may not be used for commercial products.**

  1. I love LessonPix -- I use it all year long to make quick articulation sheets for my students. I love that I can customize the sheets to the needs of individual students.

  2. I can totally understand not sending much home during the summer and if you do, trying to keep the packets smaller and easy to put together. Summer is short and busy too and so summer homework carryover packets should be fun and easy to do and especially not long! :) Have a nice summer and thank you for the post and great reminder about LessonPix.

  4. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book
    in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to
    drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great
    blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  6. Right here is the right web site for everyone who
    wants to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will
    need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been discussed
    for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

  7. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're
    working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future
    but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  8. No matter if some one searches for his required thing, thus he/she needs to be available that
    in detail, therefore that thing is maintained
    over here.

  9. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I'm looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    site is truly superb.
