Auditory Memory Activities for Summer

If you have seen my past Auditory Memory packets, you will love this one!  I am starting a series of seasonal themed auditory memory packets.  The first one in this series is Auditory Summer.

The first activity in this packet is Auditory Memory for Sentences.  In this activity, you will pick a card for your student and read the sentence out loud.  The student repeats the sentence exactly as you say it.  There are 6, 7, 8, and 10 syllable sentences contained on these cards.  After your student repeats the sentence, they can move their piece on the game board provided.  I printed my game board on an 11x17 piece of paper and laminated it.  All of my students see it out on the table and want to play!

The second activity in this packet is Beach Day Riddles.  In this activity, students are given three auditory clues to name a summer item.  The clues are read out loud.  I have also included item picture cards that can be placed out on the table if the student needs some visual cues to guess the item.  When the student guesses the item, they can put the item onto their "beach."

The next activity Auditory Memory for Summer Stories.  This is a set of super short stories with auditory comprehension questions.  The questions target who, what, where, when, and some quantities.  Each story has a picture that can be printed on the front of the card.  I use the two sided print option on my printer and flipped the page on the left side in order to get the cards to line up correctly.  

The last activity in this packet is Summer Story Retelling.  In this activity, you will read a summer themed story to your student and then have the student tell the story back to you.  A rubric is contained at the bottom of the page so that you can easily keep data on story retelling.

My students have already been having fun with these auditory activities.  You can purchase this for your students here: Auditory Summer.

Speechy TPT Teacher Appreciation Sale!

I love Teacher Appreciation Week at my school.  The parents make everyone on the staff feel very much appreciated.  I also love this week because there is usually a TpT sale so that I can stock up on my wishlisted items for the end of the year!

Well, the time is upon us!  This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at my school, and guess what?!? The TpT Teacher Appreciation Sale starts today too!  When you use the code CELEBRATE at checkout, you can save 28% off of your cart.  The sale will run Tuesday and Wednesday, May 3 &4.

The Frenzied SLPs decided to share some things that we are excited about offering to you, and also share some things that are on our wishlists!

First, let me share some things that are in my cart:

This Growth Mindset product from Speech to the Core looks great!  We have been focusing on this at my school along with improving our feedback with students.  I'm excited to have some activities and posters to go along with our work!

My students have been BEGGING for Cariboo lately! I have a few sets of articulation cards that I have made for my students, but haven't had time to make sets for all of the sounds.  This set of Cariboo for Articulation and Language, Too! from Mia at Putting Words in your Mouth looks like it will work perfectly for me and be such a time saver.

Now, for a couple things that I want to share with you from my store (everything will be 20% off, and you can add an additional 10% off at checkout by using the code CELEBRATE):

This is a product that I have used so much with my students since I created it.  Categories!  has everything you need to target labeling and sorting items in categories.  This has worked great with my preschool, kindergarten, and students with ASD.  You know I am all about interactive books, and the books in this packet have targeted categories in a new way for me, as they have helped to increase length of utterance when describing categories.  I have had so much fun using the activities in this packet.

While on the topic of using interactive books, Verb Interactive Books: Kids in Action is another one that I have used so much since I created it.  Using real pictures has helped me work on verbs in a new way with my students.  Having the visual sentences right under each picture has helped them to increase their sentence structure, length, and use of verbs.  This has been great with my students with ASD!

I hope I gave you a few ideas to fill up your cart.  Remember to use the code CELEBRATE when you check out to get an additional 10% off of all items in your cart.  The sale runs May 3 and 4.  You can follow through this linky if you want to find some more recommended items from The Frenzied SLPs and other awesome TpT sellers:
