Ice Breakers for Hallway Traveling - Freebie Alert!

That travel period between classroom and speech room can be the longest 3 minutes of your day sometimes. Whether your school has a "quiet" hallway policy, or your kiddos are just not there yet for transitioning, the travel portion of speech can be challenging.

In an effort to try and avoid the traveling travesty that can occur, I Traveling Ice Breakers for you and the kiddos! Oh, and it's a freebie!
created these

This is an I-Spy based game that you can work a few ways. Work on listening by reading the clues and having students figure out what it is. Have students read the clues to their peers to follow visual cues and directions. OR, show the picture to one student (and have them keep it a secret) and have them describe what the object is with clues their peers can follow. I love options!

What I did to put these together is laminate the clues and answers back to back (you may need to use some glue before you laminate). Then, I punched a hole in the corners of the cards and put them on a binder ring for easy access. I also provided you with printable blank versions so you can make your own, more specific ice breakers.

Happy ice-breaking! :) Download the freebie HERE

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!

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 …

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!
