I can't believe I am saying this but the TpT Back to School Sale is here!  Monday, August 3, and Tuesday, August 4, my store, Speech Universe , and many others will be 20% off.  You can get an additional 10% off when you put in the code BTS15 at checkout. Now, for the fun part, the linky!  Thanks to Jenna over at Speech Room News  for hosting this fun way to share lots of great products for the sale.  You can click on through and find lots of great products for the new school year. Here are some things I think you might love from Speech Universe . First, one of my favorite things from last year was my Paper Bag Articulation Books .  My kids LOVED making these.  I have added a lot of sounds to the bundle since last fall, and think you might really love this packet as much as I do. Next, I think you might really like my  Interactive Articulation Books .  There are a bunch of sounds in this packet, and you can also purchase the sounds separately.  I had so much fu...
The Best Thing I Learned This Summer.  What a question!  When I first heard it, my initial response was that this summer I learned that I eat too much, drink too much (at least that is what my waistline is telling me), and buying and selling a house is very stressful!  I think I have learned all of those things, but I have also learned some better things this summer too.  Here are three things I learned this summer... First, I really love Michigan!  Sometimes in winter, I am really not sure why I live where I do, but then summer hits.  This summer, my family took a vacation to the Traverse City area where we rented a cottage on the water.  It was amazing!  It was so relaxing with lots of time for some family bonding!  Here is a picture of the view from Sleeping Bear Dunes: The second thing I learned this summer was how to use Periscope!  What a fun, new social media app that is available on both Apple and Android phones.  It is a live streaming app that is owned by Twitter.  ...
One of the great things about purchasing items on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) is that when authors update their work (which I often do) you can easily get these updates by following these simple steps: 1.  Go to My TpT and click on My Purchases. 2.  Next, sort your purchases by changing the sort to Recently Revised .  Then, look for products with the red Newly Revised Re-Download button. 3.  Then, you can click on the Description of Revision button to see what has changed. 4.  Last, simply click the Download Now button to get the most updated version of the product. Pretty easy, right? There are a few reasons that I might update a product:  I may have missed something when I proofread the original product, and had to make some fixes or changes for that reason. Oops!  Sorry about that one! I may have looked at the original product and realized that I don't really like how it looks anymore.  In creating new products, I have changed my style over the ...
Hi everyone!  Hope your summer is going well.  I am having a blast staying at home this summer with my boys.  I am also in the midst of moving too.  We purchased a new house, and are moving this month.  It has been a crazy time, but we are all excited. I can't believe it, but fall will be coming before we know it!  I know, how dare I say that!?  But, in my free time between packing and just generally relaxing, I created the last in my series of seasonal interactive books.  My newest addition is for, you guessed it, FALL ! I think these Fall Interactive Books turned out really cute.  I can't wait to use them with my students!  They have been kid tested though, by my very own little monkeys. :) There are three books in this set: Fall Activities Fall Clothes What Do You See? Each of these books has ten pages with an interactive piece for each page.  Your students will be quickly engaged with these repetitive sentences in each book.  There are detailed instructions f...
