A Collection Of MLK Jr Freebies That I Found!

I'm sure many of my fellow bloggers feel this same sentiment - how can I use other SLPs/Teachers resources when I'm promoting my own? I definitely struggled with using other people's packets in the beginning. It felt like getting all the ingredients for dinner and then going out to eat. Soon I discovered there really isn't guilt in supporting/using other bloggers items. It's nice to support the network of SLPs and Teachers on TpT, as well as contribute to the pot!

So, on that ever preachy speechy point - here are the items from TpT that I will be using this week.
Here's my disclaimer: all of these were free. Not all of these are SLPs (but our lovely teachers do good work too!). I will not be using all of these as they are intended to be used.

Here goes it:

I will printing out Lindsay Messner's (teacher's bits and bobs) vocabulary cards. There are only 5 cards, but I will be using them with my Kindergarteners so it's perfect for what I need it for.

You can find these cards here.

I'm going to be making a flap book with all 3 grades (kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd). I'm going to be having the Kinders draw and orally tell me the answers, while the second graders will utilize the prompts for writing. I'm going to be using the flap book print out from Cecilia Magro (I love first grade) that I found on TpT. I like that she provides 2 pages for the flap book, making it easy to modify.

You can find this book here.

I also am really loving the flap book from Classroom Creations by Melissa. I'm definitely going to have to be doing the cutting for the kiddos, but they will enjoy coloring it. I am going to integrate the higher level vocabulary for my older kiddos if I end up using it with them as well!

You can download this craft here.

I'm working on recall and retell with my firsties, so I'm thinking of saving this timeline for them. I picked the brain of our awesome librarian, and she gave me a few books to choose from for MLK history. After we find out a bit more about our buddy MLK, I'm going to use this timeline packet from Kennedy's Korner and have them sequence and retell the life of MLK.

You can download this packet here.

Expository/Narrative Work
Forever First Grade has a nice packet for informational text. She provides the excerpt and questions that give the students two choices for fill-ins. It's targeted towards first grade, but I may end of using this with some of my second graders as well!

You can download this here.

I also really like the class packet from Learning 4 Keeps. I like that she has them connect what their dream is, as well as what MLK's dream was. It looks like it's meant for the kids to draw, but I might put some lines in and have some of my kiddos write as well if we have time.

You can download the class packet here.

Hope you find these as useful as I did! :)

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 …
