"One Snowy Day" by Jeffrey Scherer

Let's chat about "One Snowy Day", shall we? It's probably a reality most New Yorkers will be living soon seeing as some snow is on its way. It's ALSO a great book by Jeffrey Scherer!

The story is adorable. A bunch of animals each bring something to make a snowman. They all work together to build the snowman, including rolling the snow and decorating it. It's a great story for vocabulary, sequencing, and categorization. Plus, it's an early-reader book meant for kindergarten/1st grade so it's basic enough that you can branch up or down easily. 

The packet includes:

-Character cards
-Character-Action match cards
-Build your own snowman worksheet
-Character attributes sheet
-“What would you do if you were...” character sheet
-Story-based question cards
-Snowman sequencing sheet
-“How do these things go together” using story items
-Homework worksheet

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 …

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!

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.

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!
