As you know, all of the materials I share are FREE. So how can I make a special packet to celebrate this milestone? And how could I make this 1-year blogiversary packet special for you, my trustworthy followers?
Well, I thought it would be a nice way to say thank you to those of you who have been reading my blog for some time now, commenting, and sharing your own ideas.
So this time there will be no direct google docs link for this packet. Instead, I will share with you a preview of the entire packet and email you this FREE packet once you answer two simple questions by commenting below. If you cannot comment because you don't have a gmail account, but you've been a faithful follower, don't you worry! You can head on over to my FB page and leave your comment on my post there for this blog freebie.
OK here are the two questions I have for you: 1) What was your favorite or most helpful blog I've posted over the last year? 2) What topics, issues, information, etc. would you like to see in the future?
Update 7/25/13: I am no longer accepting email addresses for this packet! Thank you for all of your suggestions and recommendations!
Want to know what's in my blogiversary packet? Well I tried to make something for SLPs who work with all ages of children. I've spent much time on this packet b/c I really wanted you to know how very grateful I am that you are following me and supporting me. I hope you like it! So here goes:
The first activity is for older students and students working on higher cognitive skills such as inferencing and predicting. On each card is described a scenario with characters and inferencing and predicting questions to ask.
The second activity is a reinforcer game I like to call "Monster Mash-Up!" You can print off as many copies of these cute little monsters as you want and play various versions of games (concentration/memory, "war", "slap", etc.) as a reinforcer for any speech or language goals.
The third and final activity I made was "Monster Truck Jam"! Its a fun phonological awareness game I've been playing with my own clients for some time now. I laminate the Street Sound Mat, write letters of different sounds in the circle before each road, and when I say a word, the student will place a monster truck on the street that represents the sound he/she heard. This has worked WONDERS for a few of my kiddos who used phonological processes as this improved their phonological awareness which translated into improvements in self-monitoring and self-correction skills.
Ok so this is my 1 year blogiversary FREEBIE packet! I hope you love it as much as I do! Don't forget to get it by commenting below (or on my FB page) and answering these two questions: 1) What was your favorite or most helpful blog I've posted over the last year? 2) What topics, issues, information, etc. would you like to see in the future?. Leave your email address also so I can email the packet to you!!!
1 year down! I hope you keep following me b/c there is much more to come!!! Happy Talking!
