Santa Claus is missing and YOU need to figure out where he went and who he is with! Read through the characters, get their background stories, figure out their motives, and solve the case! This is a super fun interactive powerpoint activity that will get your kids defending their picks, inferencing up a storm, and having fun!

Utilize the printable chart that is included in this PPT and have the students fill in the critical information. You will have a blast figuring out this who dun it!

  1. Wow! I bought this today and used it in two therapy sessions with pretty bright kids and their parents. Somehow, we all missed the clues on how to decide "who dun it". Anyone else struggle?
    Help please! Thanks!

  2. Hi Lynn! Thanks for downloading this activity! Maybe I can help...the biggest clue you get is in the beginning with the colors - grey being the #1 clue. The kids have to pay attention to everything even the photos in the ppt to figure out the clue. If you feel another character works better, or want to add in clues please do so! Mrs. Claus is merely a suggestion! I hope this helped :)

FREE Parent Handout for "Self-Talk" and "Parallel Talk"!

This summer I pledged that I would work with more of the little little guys in my private practice - early intervention and preschool age. I love this age group and really missed working with them (currently I see preK through second grade in a school setting). Working in a home-based environment is incredible because of all of the great parent-training we get to do. I love being able to explain and show exactly what I'm doing and the strategies I'm using.

As all SLPs know, with this age group we are doing a lot of self and parallel talk. Sometimes I leave my half-hour sessions out of breath! Of course, talking is never an issue for an SLP!! I find that my parents are talking to their child, however their language needs to be modified, or they need to present things differently (i.e., giving options to elicit more language vs. yes/no questions).

I created this parent handout to familiarize my parents with what I'm doing and to emphasize effective carryover. I like to say …

Halloween Following Directions Print-N-Go Packet

Just a quick check-in before I wander off into Sunday chili and sweatpants! I wanted to share this following directions packet I've been using for the month of October. I have a lot of kinders this year who came in with following directions goals. I've been trying to target them each session with fun, coloring crafts each time so they can see their work.
This packet is four pages, black and white, and FREE! It includes following 1 and 2 step directions, following varied directions, and following conditional directions. All the sheets are halloween themed and of course black and white for low-ink usage! Check out this scarily fun packet HERE on TpT! 

Winter Adapted Book FREEBIE!

With the crazy weather here in NY (see house pic nightmare of snow!) I wanted to share my adapted free book for winter clothing! This will be one of those short, late-night posts, so I apologize! I wanted to make sure this one got out to you guys!

I created this for use with an AAC device, but it really can be utilized for so much more! I've also used this activity to target vocabulary with an ESL student, following directions with a student targeting auditory comprehension, and as an introduction to the topic of winter!

The options are endless! Plus, I wanted to make this a freebie since I know I have been using tons of awesome freebies on TpT from fellow bloggers - gotta give back!
