An Eggcellent Idea

With Easter coming to an end, I'm sure that clever bunny left you with a ton of eggs from the hunt! Instead of stashing those plastic eggs away for the year, keep them out and use them as great therapy tools! Here are some eggtraordinary ideas for re-using those plastic eggs!

1. An eggtra easy WH-game! Just hide something in the egg, provide one clue (or even no clues!) and then have your students ask questions to figure out what's in the egg -- category, shape, color, etc.

2. Be an Articulation Eggspert! Fill your eggs with the sound you're working on and hide the eggs throughout the room! Find the egg, say the sound, and win!

3. Inferencing Eggtra! Write descriptions about items in your room and then hide those descriptions in the egg! Shake up the eggs and then have your students pick one egg and use inferencing skills to figure out what the clue meant!

4. Scrambled Band! Fill your eggs with pebbles, sand, marbles, etc. (then tape them shut!!) start shaking to a beat, or shake each one and see if your students can guess what's making the noise!

5. Eggceptional Topics! Fill each egg with an open-ended statement, like "Sometimes I wish I could..." Then have each student pick an egg with a topic and either write their own answer, or interview a friend and write that up!

No matter what you do it'll be eggemplary!

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 …
