I am Totally Famous!

Guess what? I have been featured on Speech Room Style! Speech Room Style is known for finding awesome speech rooms to share with our colleagues. On top of that, I get a handy email from them weekly about the latest and greatest TPT products made by SLPs. It is called SLPs on TPT. They have really got it going on over there! 

Check me out here. I can also send you an autographed photo of my room. You know. Because I'm famous now!

RWAAAR! Monster!

I have already shared some of my Halloween activities in previous posts, but I wanted to make sure you had the chance to see this fun activity. We are making monsters. RWAAAAR!

I got the idea here from No Time for Flashcards.

It is really simple, and the kids enjoyed making these scary guys. I am lucky enough to have an assistant to do (almost) all of my copying, laminating, prep, etc. So, she had the hand-cramping task of cutting all the monsters out over the past few weeks. Kind of a cr*ppy job. And yes, I got her some chocolate to fuel her along.  But, I need every minute of my speech session to work with students, so I don't want to spend a bunch of time on cutting. 

Anyway, here are the steps!

Step 1: Find someone to cut out the monsters for you. Provide chocolate and/or coffee to fuel the cutting.

Step 2: After the student completes a therapy task (ie: says a word 5x, uses a complete sentence, etc.), he or she can add one paint dot. This goes on and on until the student feels they have enough paint dots on the monster.

Step 3: The therapist adds a bunch of glue dots all over the monster.

Step 4: After the student completes a therapy task (ie: says a word 5x, uses a complete sentence, etc.), he or she can add one googlie eye. This goes on and on until the therapist feels therapy is done. And, when the student feels they have enough googlie eyes on the monster.

Step 5: Let the monsters dry and decorate your speech room. OOoooooooohhhhhh. So spooky!
Hope you try making these scary dudes with your students. And don't forget to check out my Halloween {Speech and Language} Craftivity on my TPT shop. Your kids will love it too!

Happy Halloween!

October in the Speech Room

I am excited to share with you my bulletin boards for October. This kids are digging them, and I hope you do to. 

The first section is a candy-corn survey. I can't believe so many kids LIKE candy-corn. Gross. This question led us into one of the craftivities that we have been making in speech. 

For those working on articulation goals, they have been putting together these cute candy-corns. I have created a craftivity set for my TPT store that includes all the printables and instructions for this activity. Check it out here.

They look adorable floating around the room.

Each year, I use this haunted house to target prepositions and concepts. The students follow my directions on where to put the sticker ghosts. I laminated the haunted house, so when the student leaves speech, I can easily pull the stickers off with minimal damage. I have been using the same haunted house for a few years, and it is holding up well! 

Last, but not least, are our mummies.  This is the second portion of my new craftivity in my TPT store. Get it here and start the fun in speech today!

For my SIX students with fluency/stuttering goals (I know right, SIX is a lot!), we are practicing strategies while decorating these sticker pages from Oriental Trading Company. 

All the kids have been doing spooky activities that I have collected and created over the years. Lots of stuff from Pinterest and TPT.

Before you go, take a look at my new Halloween {Speech and Language} Craftivity. It's only $2! You will get everything you need to make the Mummy and Giant Candy Corn, both featured in this blog post. Here is a little preview of what is included:

Oh, and here are my cute kids at the pumpkin patch ;)

Speech Room September and August

Hello everyone! I wanted to share a few pictures of my bulletin boards that I had up for September and August. I went with an Inside Out theme, and the kids were so stoked! I even made a few activities for articulation, language, and pragmatics. Check them out in my TPT shop here.

I have three divide boards to feature different activities and topics as the year moves along. For now, it is all about Inside Out.

Jill Kuzma's "size of the problem" set is featured here:

It has been a fun theme, but now it is time to move onto Halloween. Check back soon for some spooky ideas and decor!
