We're starting: Poetry...pinterest/youtube finds

So we're going to be starting rhyming/poetry in honor of Valentine's Day! I was a little hesitant to do poetry with my little ones, but then I did some searching pinterest, youtube, and TpT and hit the jackpot! I'll be forming my own rhyming/poetry packet, but in the meantime, here are some awesome finds!

Kindergarten Poetry
Everything Elementary has this awesome packet on TpT that is FREE. It's a month-by-month poetry packet for Kindergarten. It has adorable poems for each season/holiday/month and they're printable - which is awesome!

Click here to download this packet.

First Grade Poetry
First Grade WOW has a 97 page FREE packet (talk about wow!) of printable 1st grade poems. She has a whole packet that you can use with kiddos to introduce them to poetry.

Second Grade Poetry
Ms. Russell's Second Grade Class is a school website (think e-chalk, or blackboard) that is run by this teacher. She has a ton of printable second grade-level poetry that you can grab!

YouTube Poetry
After my quick epiphany that my kinders weren't going to be so interested in a poem without pictures, I did a quick search. Turns out, you can find animated Shel Silverstein poems on youtube! There's a whole channel dedicated to his books here!

If you're looking for specific poems of his, you can see an animated "Snowball" here  and a film depicting "The Giving Tree" here.

Be sure to keep an eye out for my speechie-specific packet coming this week!

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!
