There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Clover - an INTERACTIVE activity!

I'm really into the "There was an Old lady" books lately. I think it's all the rhyming and eating lol I see a ton of activities using printable sheets for this book, which are great, but I wanted to bring you guys something a little more high tech today!

My interactive version of "There was an old lady who swallowed a clover" is a super fun activity that you can use with the book and/or after the book as a follow up! You can use it for sequencing, story telling, rhyming, etc. The options are endless!

Here's how it works! The students are given two options as to what the old lady ate. The questions are sequenced in the same order as the story. Once the students give the answer, click on (in this case the clover) the picture of the object and watch it fly into the old lady's mouth! Then go down to the bottom and click on the empty box in the sentence to fill in the story!

Next, watch the old lady's stomach fill up. Follow the prompts on the screen as to which picture to click first. Then watch the screen reenact the story!

Finally, watch the old lady dance around and all of the items come flying out of her mouth! Don't forget to click and watch the St. Patrick's Day Clover wiggle around at the end!

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!

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! 

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 …
