Synonym or Antonym?

I had the best session today using this new FREEBIE!  We are really trying to gain understanding of antonyms and synonyms. It went so well I wanted to share it for FREE so others could possibly find some success using it too.  Plus, my kids just can't get enough of my "Don't Wake the Monster" games!

Preschool Language Screeners

My teachers have been on a roll identifying and referring the kiddos that are in need of a speech/language screening. Unfortunately, I don't have a preschool language screener that I like (or money to buy one) so I decided to make one! I have been using this with a few of my kiddos and found it gives great informal assessment information to determine whether or not a full evaluation should be recommended. Here are a few pictures of the screeners.
Let's look a little bit closer!  The scoring is simple, give a 1 if the child gets the answer correct and a 0 if it's incorrect.  You add up all the 1's at the end and if the average score is 80% or higher the student has passed the screening.  If the child scores 79% or lower further evaluation is recommended. 

It has taken me about 10-15 minutes to complete both sections of the screener (expressive and receptive) with my preschool kiddos. The best part is that they are only $3.00 on TPT!  You can click on any of the pictures to check them out!

What's new??

Hi friends!  Well this year is just moving right along isn't it??  I can't believe the end of the first nine weeks is tomorrow.  As I'm working with my kiddos I have been putting things together that we need in our therapy sessions.  Here's a little bit of what's new in my store! You can click on any pictures below to check them out.
{Hint there's a lot of no prep going on when you're planning for 50+ kiddos!}
This pack was designed for speech therapy and has no prep fun for 10 different phonological processes and great minimal pair cards!

This pack was designed for speech therapy and has tons of WH- questions including pages with mixed WH- questions!

This pack is more geared towards the general ed. teacher in grades 1-3.  The best thing about this pack (besides the fact that it's FULL of engaging activities and printables) is that it is FREE! Grab it now so you'll be ready to teach all about Veterans Day before November 11th. 

Don't Wake the Monster! {No Prep Speech Therapy Games}

I have always been a fan of card games that are super easy to prep and play.  I have played versions of "Bang" or "zap" for years and I've carried this over into speech as well.  In speech this past week we've been playing "Don't Wake the Monster!". Color ink is expensive and hard to come by at my school so I prefer black/white printables that I can make colorful by printing onto colored copy paper.  Since I often have a group of kiddos working on different goals I have been printing each kiddo's cards on a different color paper so we can all play together but work on different goals!
I also set the iPad timer from anywhere from 5-7 minutes depending on the group.  They LOVE the timer, it makes them work harder and stay on task.  Plus they love being able to tell when time will be up!   I have put together two different packets, one with articulation games and one with language games. If you're looking for quick and easy articulation or language games you can check them out by clicking on either picture below!

Apraxia {No Prep}

Working with kiddos with Childhood Apraxia of Speech can be challenging and yet so rewarding.  I have also found it is pretty difficult to find materials for apraxia that don't cost an arm and a leg.  Since I don't have an extra arm or leg to spare ; )  I have been slowly putting these things together and finally put them all into a new packet.  This packet practices production of vowel sounds and different syllable structures (CV, VC, CVC, CVCV). 

I had a sweet kiddo yesterday who LOVED the "Don't Wake the Monster" game with the printable picture cards. She loved it so much, I am working on making the game for other articulation sounds too, coming soon! She asked to take it home and play it with her mom (hello homework!).

Ways to Show a Number {Flipbook}

Hi friends!  I hope your school year is going well!  Mine has been busy, busy as I'm sure yours has too.   I was looking at my "Ways to Show a Number" anchor chart the other day and thought that would be great to turn into a flip book!  So, here it is! The file has two flip books; one to teach and one to practice.  Click on the picture to check it out!
