YouTubin' in Speech!

I'm a huge fan of videos..anything visual! If its moving, singing, and dancing the kids are into it! I found a few great videos that I wanted to share with you. We have access to YouTube in my building luckily, so if you can, click along!

Syllable Segmenting:

If I have to break up words on a whiteboard for 30 minutes - I'll cry. So naturally, the kids are most likely bored too. I found this great video for "clapping" out the sounds! The link is here:

The Four Seasons:

The session always starts with my Speech Warm Up. During the warm up I ask the month, year, and season! Almost always I get a month as an answer, no matter how many time we go through the seasons lol This video does a nice job of putting it into song form, which is sticking for my kids. It also provides clues for each season during the song and the kids have to guess what the season is! The link is here:

Humpy Dumpty, and other nursery rhymes

Some of my little kiddos aren't familiar with nursery rhymes, and they have rhyming goals! What better way to teach rhymes than with nursery rhymes!
The link for this video and many others is:

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 …
