Snowflake Bentley Comprehension Packet

Snowflake Bentley has been THE most appropriate story to be reading these last few weeks! It's been a snowy end of January, early February and we are loving learning about what comes from the sky! I've been using Bookflix from Scholastic to show the story as opposed to reading it - the kids are SUPER into it! I pause the story, ask questions, point things out, etc. The kids are pretty much yelling to turn it back on! It's like teaching with tv! They're hooked!
Either way, if you have the paper book it's a good story too! My comprehension pack starts off with a KWL chart and leads into a graphic organizer where you can answer questions and track traits about Snowflake Bentley. We focused on character traits, and what those mean. 

You can then use the writing prompt pages to write and draw about snowflakes or snowflake Bentley himself! If writing is not what you're targeting, I like to use the comprehension questions with or without cariboo for my little ones - and the big ones too as a support! 

Use the beginning, middle, end and first, second, last sheets to sequence both the story and how to make a snowflake. It's nice to use the white board or a simple pencil and paper to show the steps to making a snowflake. Plus, the kids like it when you challenge them to follow the steps (hello, auditory comprehension goals!)

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 …
