SLP Link Up for September

I love a good collaboration! Especially when it has to do with awesome SLP bloggers! I am super excited to link up for All Y'all Need's September link up! Be sure to check it out, it's prettttttty awesome! I would never have found out about PicMonkey if it weren't for her! Here's mine:

Schooling: Many of you know that I'm starting on Monday 9/9/13 (ahhhh!) at my new (and first) job in an awesome elementary school! The staff are great and the students rock! 
Excited: You guessed it, I'm excited about a) being a real SLP and b) starting my first job! I'm also pretty psyched about documenting the whole thing on instagram!
Prepping: I am prepping like you can't even imagine. Like the end of the world is near and to survive we need speech supplies and activities. I can't wait to get started with my new little kiddos!
Trying: Well, like many a new grad who now has an abundance of free time on their hands, I have no idea what to do with said free I'm trying new hobbies and activities for pleasure - who knew that existed - and I'm trying to relax and enjoy my CF!

I hope you'll check out the great posts from the other awesome bloggers, and have a GREAT September! Comment below with your SEPT goals! If you're looking to link up, be sure to visit All Y'all Need's blog!

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! 

All About "Sticker Stop" - a free classroom management and carryover tool!

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 …
