Talking Turkey - A Thanksgiving Articulation Pint-n-Go Craftivity (S/R/L)

 Happy Monday! Thanksgiving is right around the corner - we can do it! We can make it to Thanksgiving break! I wanted to put together something easy that was low-prep, low-ink, and fun to get us through until the break! This packet has all the heavy hitter sounds - /s/, /r/, /l/ - in all positions!

Undoubtedly your kids are on a Turkey Day high right about now - you've discussed Pilgrims, Native Americans, the Mayflower, squash, pumpkins, etc! So why not hit print and work on making their very own Pilgrim hat filled with speech sounds!

So far every kid has been psyched to make their own hat and wear it out of Speech! 

You start out filling in the top of the hat and deciding what sound they are
thankful for. This would be a great language lesson for mixed groups as well! The packet is a straight-forward print-n-go activity which I absolutely love during the hectic weeks before a break.

Students will color and name the pieces to decorate their hats. They (or you) can then cut out the visuals and glue on each piece by naming them.

It's a great way to get a ton of trials in and complete a reinforcing activity!

I like to mount the hat on black construction paper and then use the leftover pieces to create the actual piece that will go around their head. Have fun talking turkey and creating this great Thanksgiving craftivity!

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!
