Hop into Frogs!

We're going full speed ahead into Spring in the Speech Room! I've started a bulletin board for "Aquatic Life" to keep a theme (I just love a theme!) and what better way to hop into Aquatic Life than with frogs!?

I crafted this packet with three levels in mind - Kindergarten, First, and Second, but I'm thinking you may be able to extend it to third graders too! It's chock full of graphs, writing tasks, craftivities, and printable books! All that stuff our kiddos love!

To start you off, I've given you some basic vocabulary with color pictures, and a KWL chart to get some basic knowledge going with your kiddos! You can move onto sequencing the life cycle of the frog, and using an interactive link provided in the packet to sequence the life cycle on a SMARTboard or computer. Then, use the cut and paste activity to sequence the life cycle, or have kids label/draw the life cycle.
 Use the printable black and white books (two levels) to read further about each stage of the life cycle. You can link this with the "Observation Log" that the kids can do to observe the frogs at each stage of the life cycle and report their observations. You can do this again online using the links provided.

A great craftivity that I tried to emulate in this packet is the "wheel". Cut out the wheel pages and use a page fastener to create a spinning wheel of information! Again, different levels are provided for the second page of the wheel to help you differentiate.

 Use the last few pages for reading comprehension and retell. Have students draw and write what they know about frogs using the provided worksheets! Then send home the carryover that has 4 sheets/page for paper and ink saving techniques!

Download this packet HERE on TpT and enjoy it for FREE until Friday! :)

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 …

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.

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!
