Crazy for Cariboo! [Freebie alert!]

So I officially hopped on the cariboo bandwagon! After seeing all the wonderful things other SLPs were doing with this game, I really had to have it! I hopped on Ebay after being terrified of the price on Amazon ($170 are they nuts!?), and ended up snagging a game in great shape for about $38 with shipping.
I have been using a number of activities with it, especially The Peachie Speechie's "Sophie's Squash" companion - which is awesome by the way! I realized the game was insanely addicting and totally reinforcing, SCORE! No wonder everyone is obsessing!  Since I truly hate drill work for articulation, and feel like my brain is being drilled when I do it, I thought this would be a great solution! I made up some open-ended articulation cards and used them for /s/, /r/, /l/ session after session. It was an all-in-one! Plus, it's pirate-themed so how can you go wrong? 
I'm so excited about this, that I wanted to share these as a freebie with you Cariboo-ers! Cli…

Monthly Newsletter FREEBIE!

I've been thinking of a way to link up with my parents more than the occasional phone call (which is also awesome!) and the speech notebook. I put out some feelers on instagram and Facebook about doing a weekly newsletter, and I'm so happy I did. You guys shared with me that weekly would be WAY too intense, and that a monthly or thematic newsletter would be best. I totally agree!

I shared my newly crafted newsletter with you guys yesterday and it seems like you'd like to use it in your speech rooms! I'm happy to share my newsletter with you guys as a freebie! It's something I'm really just getting into, so I'd love your feedback!

You can download the newsletter HERE from TpT. Look for next month's newsletter soon! :)

ALSO, this newsletter is more language-oriented, so I would suggest sending home an articulation calendar from "Speech Activities from Miss Chelsea"  her November calendar can be found here.

Miss Nelson is Missing - the video! Link below...

So I'm loving the feedback I'm getting from you guys with my Miss Nelson packet! I wanted to share with you this awesome video that I found from PS 33 in the Bronx! The students there acted out "Miss Nelson is Missing" and really did a wonderful job!

Click on the link HERE to check out the video on vimeo, which I'm able to access at school unlike YouTube!
