Fourth of July Freebie

SO I've been off all week and I start my summer job Monday! I'm super excited because I'm working with preschool in a super cool collaborative program. It's unlike anything I've ever done traditionally in my school (of course we collaborate and push-in, but not all day) so I'm SUPER excited to get a summer to try something new! The kids should be super adorable and the people I'm working with seem great..so, we're off on another adventure! Hold onto your hats.

ANYWHO, I'm loving preK already because there's a theme every week - and we know how much I love a theme. Our theme for this week is - wait for it - red, white and blue! So, all week I will be bringing you the crafts, worksheets, and songs we will be doing to celebrate good ol' America!

Our first, and I feel most important, item to review (super speechy) is vocabulary. If our kiddos don't know the lingo, how are they suppose to identify, make connections, and explain the topic! I crafted these vocabulary words and two worksheets as a freebie for a number of reasons. First, I got all the images off of google because I think it's important to use real pictures with the little ones. Second, I love a good freebie!

With the vocab, we are going to tie in the book we're reading "Red, White, and BOOM" by Lee Wardlaw. We will categorize (what do we eat vs. what do we do on the 4th), and of course we will expand and make connections! The worksheets help carryover the skills we're targeting.

You can download this packet HERE off of google drive for FREE!

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 …

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!

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!
