Pirate's Prattle: Customizable Articulation Game

All Pirates, All the time. Right!? I'm loving my new Pirate clip art that I got from Scrappin' Doodles. I'm having a blast making activities for you guys with it!!! This activity is chock-full of great, customizable articulation games!

Here are the instructions straight from the packet: 

To play this game: Throw the cube and see which pirate object you land on. You have three options to play. 1) Whichever object you get you must answer 3 questions to achieve the object (use the pirate ship sheet). 2) You answer the question to get the object. 3) Utilize markers and move one by one depending on what you roll. Once you get the object, place it on your board and you’re one step closer to the treasure! SO, if you roll a pirate hat, you must either answer three questions correctly and fill up your pirate ship OR you must answer the question correctly to get the object. Fill up the board, or reach the end and win the treasure! 

 To prepare this activity: print out the cube and laminate it. Then, print out a treasure map for each student. If you chose to print your own questions for the back of the objects, there is a blank sheet in the pdf (you can laminate on the back of the object sheet). If you chose to play the 3 questions for 1 object way, print out a pirate ship for each student.

Here are some more uses! 

1) Use the pirate ship boards as behavior modification visuals (red, yellow, green behavior!). 
2) You can also use the treasure map as an actual treasure map and hide the objects around the room! Have the students hide the objects and describe where they put them for a seriously pirate-y language activity!
3) Use the cube and objects for an "I-have, You have" game.

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 …
