Well, my kindergarten intervention groups have been up and running for about a month and a half now.  They are loving using all of my phonological awareness book companion activities.  It is amazing how engaged the students get when you use a book, and then directly relate activities to the book.  With Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to create a fun new companion with a Valentine's theme.  The book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose  by Lucille Colandro seemed like the perfect one!  My students have loved the other books from this series, and I am sure they will love this one too. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose: Phonological Awareness Companion Pack There are six different activities included in this packet: How Many Syllables Students count the number of syllables, and use a Do-A-Dot marker to complete the activity.      (4 worksheets)   Blending Syllables Students listen to two syllables and state the word that they hear. (18 cards ...
It is almost Valentine's Day!  I love all of the cute images that are out there that represent this holiday.  They are all just so cute!  I wanted to make an activity using these different images, and thought that another same/different worksheet packet would be perfect. Valentine's Day: Same and Different        This is a packet that contains eight different worksheets that target identifying items that are the same and items that are different.  There are two color worksheets and two black and white worksheets that target identifying items that are the same in a row.     There are also two color worksheets and two black and white worksheets that target identifying the item that is different in a row. *I laminated my color copies so that I can use them with a dry erase marker with students.  This will save some paper and ink, plus my students love to use the markers! I think these turned out really cute, and can't wait to use them the week of...
This week in my speech room, we worked with the book Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner.   I actually had the real, hardcover book for this one!   This is a beautifully illustrated book, with a really cute story.   For speech and language activities, I used the Snowmen at Night Speech/Language Book Companion by CC at If Only I Had Super Powers .   There are eight different activities included in this packet.  Sorry, I don't have any real pictures this week!  I took them with my work iPad and left it...at work!  I forgot that I don't have the iCloud backup on that one to save space.  What is great about this packet is that for every activity, CC clearly states the directions and gives game suggestions.  This is really helpful! Here are the activities included in this packet: Vocabulary There are 14 pairs of vocabulary cards, 4 fun game cars, and a vocabulary grid.  I used these cards by laying out the definition cards face up on the table, and having stu...
Smarty Ears has come out with a great new, simple app called Language Trainer .  This app was designed by a speech-language pathologist to work on vocabulary, word finding, stuttering, and receptive or expressive language. When you first select your player, you can click on settings to adapt the app to your needs.  You can select different settings for the picture identification and divergent naming activities. You can also select to modify the database.  You can select the targets for all four activities. There are four different activities that are included in this app: Picture Identification   In this activity, students are prompted with a spoken word and expected to touch the matching picture.  In the settings on the user page, you are able to set how many items are shown on the screen (2-5 at a time). Picture Naming Students are prompted to "name this picture."  You can then mark it as correct, incorrect, or cued.  You can also record and...
