In my quest for all things bubble, I came across Crayola's Colored Bubbles in Target the other day! I was super excited! I did hear from my wonderful facebook friends that these things can be tricky, but I decided to give it a go! Good news is, I didn't end my session with purple fingers. The bad news? I did end up with some purple on my jeans BUT it came out! An overall win!
These guys are comparably priced, definitely not as cost effective as regular bubble though. A blast and super intriguing for the little ones!
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. 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!

Recently I have been seeing my beloved "Sticker Stop" popping up in many SLP classrooms and I'm LOVING it! It is one of the best activities I've ever made for carryover and behavior management (I think, at least!) and it's free!
When I originally made this activity I was using sticker charts for my kiddos. The story goes as follows - my supervisor came to observe me during my first year as an SLP (eek). She is awesome and (gives great, constructive feedback) so when she suggested I ask the kids what they learned as they get their sticker my wheels started turning. I work with little ones, so I found that a visual was really key in reinforcing this idea. A traffic-light format is a great way for kids to pace their answer and work through the question - plus, most littles know that red means stop and green means go!
I no longer use stickers, as I recently fell in love with Classroom Dojo. However, I will always use my sticker stop. It's part of the routine of …
