For The Love of Speech

What's better on a snowy day in northeast Indiana, well....a blog hop of course (particularly since I am  not a huge football fan)!  Thanks to the amazing organizational skills of Speech to the Core and the Speech Owl, I am thrilled to participate in the For the Love of Speech Blog Hop!

I absolutely love Valentine's Day and what could be better than to have all of my planning done for a whole week's worth of speech-language themed activities for my pre-K through 5th grade students!  I am pleased to share my Valentine Compare/Contrast Activity.  Click on the cover page to download!

This activity includes 12 pairs of compare/contrast cards as well as two different token boards as a motivational reinforcer for your students as they complete this task!  Use them with magnetic chips and wand for even more fun!

Thank you for participating in the For the Love of Speech Blog Hop.  For your next stop, click on the picture below!

Celebrating the 100th Day of School!

As a Frenzied SLP myself, I just realized that the 100th day of school is right around the corner (January 26, 2015 for me).  As such, I thought I would share with you some of my FAVORITE 100th day ideas in case you needed some last minute ideas!

1.  100th day snack from
Be sure to double check each student on your caseload for possible food allergies!

2.  100 therapy trials from my friend Peachie Speechie

Meredith has several themed and seasonal placemats students can use to keep track of 100 trials! Again, double check each student on your caseload for possible food allergies!

3.  100 Days of School Articulation Challenge from Nicole Allison

This is a great packet for assembling a bulletin board, words lists for 13 different sounds, and ribbons for those students who accept and complete the 100 word challenge!

4.  Do you have mixed groups...if so, check out these 100th Day themed books from compiled by boy mama teacher mama!  These are great for students working on speech sounds in reading passages, sequencing, story retell or comprehension, as well as students working on wh- ?s

5.  Need an idea for students working on speech sound carryover, conversational exchanges, or writing goals.  Check out these freebies from The Lesson Plan Diva at

Thanks for joining me to celebrate the 100th day of school!  Feel free to share any ideas you use!  I am always looking for new ways to celebrate!!
