Applesauce Valentine Tags

Valentine's day is quickly approaching!  I like to send in a little something for the kiddos at Camden's day care and since most are under 2 it's hard to find something they can all enjoy.  So, this year I went with applesauce!  I know they all like and can eat applesauce so I'm hoping it's a hit.  You can download the tags for FREE by clicking on any of the pictures below. Tags are made with clip art from Kate Hadfield and are super easy to assemble.  I just printed on card stock, cut them out, hole punched them near the top and tied them down with some string.

I included two different sayings, one says "Valentine, you're my main squeeze!" and the other says "You're awesome-sauce, valentine!" You can use both like I did or choose whichever you like the best. 
 This is my first time trying to link to a dropbox link so hopefully it works right, if not please let me know and I'll try to fix it.  Hope your week is filled with love and chocolate! : )

Note: Please be aware that these tags are NOT editable.  You will have to write your name next to the heart.  Thanks for understanding! 

Birthday Printables

This week I found myself with a very excited student who had a birthday and I felt terrible.  I realized I was unprepared for birthday celebrations.  In the classroom I usually had hats that we would wear or a treasure box to pick from.  In the speech room, I rarely find myself working with a kiddo on their exact birthday but know I need to make more of an effort to celebrate birthdays throughout the month.  So, I figured there may be some teachers (or SLPs) out there with the same problem.  I put together a small packet of birthday printables.  All printables are in black/white to save ink (and because I don't have a color printer at school). Since I am a visual learner I made some examples to see how they turned out and to use as examples.  The best part of this pack is that it's FREE! You can download it for FREE by clicking on the picture below.  Since I get this question a lot, I'll go ahead with it and let you know all the clip art used is by Kate Hadfield, she just came out with a great set of celebration clip art which I used along with her party pack!  She has her own shop or you can buy sets on TPT that come with an educational use license. I hope it helps others celebrate birthdays throughout the year!

Valentine Tags for SLPs and Teachers!

I love holidays!  This year I decided I was going to get into the Valentine spirit and wanted to find something cute (and useful) to hand out to my speech kiddos.  The more I thought about it, the more ideas I had!  So, I decided to do them all!  I made nine different Valentine tags that include speech & language ideas to encourage home practice that also go with a fun (and in expensive) toy. They turned out super cute and I can't wait to see which ones my kiddos like the best.  I bought all my items from either Dollar Tree, Walmart or Oriental Trading.  I'm so excited to share them with you, I hope you love them as much as I do! You can click on any of the pictures below to check them out on TPT!

First up is an all time favorite, playdough!  You can check out last year's Valentines to see that I love playdough and my kiddos do too!

 Next, bouncy balls!  These are about as cheap as I could get.  I bought 12 bouncy balls for under $2.00.

BUGS!  I know these will be a hit with the boys!  These are from Dollar Tree.

This one was trickier to find, I really wanted zoo animals but had to settle for a reptile/amphibian pack.  Any wild animal would work with these tags. 

Another boy favorite, mini cars!  These are also from Dollar Tree.

Crayons!  These are from Walmart, if I was a better planner I should have stocked up during the back to school sale when they were only 25 cents!

 These bubble wands are just plain cute!  I ordered them from Oriental Trading Company.  They come in pretty much any color you could want.

 Rawr!  Who doesn't love to play dinosaurs!?

And last but not least I ordered these magnifying glasses from Oriental Trading Company.  I have other plans for these too, which I hope to have finished soon!

I love how they all turned out!  Which ones are your favorite?

Winter Bingo

Well winter break is almost over!  : (  To help ease into the routine this week I made some simple Winter Bingo cards to use with my speech kiddos (they could easily be used in the classroom too!).  I LOVED playing christmas bingo before break and there was so much language going on I decided we needed a winter set.  I primarily use them to introduce new seasonal vocabulary (but I also use them to name/identify vocabulary, use describing words, and work on pragmatic skills (turn-taking, eye contact, etc.). And of course I had to use my favorite clip art, Kate Hadfield!
