Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I love chocolates, roses, teddy bears, and all the cute stuff that goes along with this sweet holiday. Truthfully, I’m a sucker for any and all holidays… gotta love a reason to celebrate! I love using themed materials and I use sweet themed items throughout the entire month of February.. with a dash of President’s Day, winter, and Groundhog’s Day mixed in!
It’s been nearly a year since my last blog giveaway, so I thought I was long overdue! I miss my little blog and plan on giving it much more attention in the new year! Let’s get the ball rolling with a fun Valentine’s Day contest!
If you’re familiar with my blog, then you know that I love color, cut, and glue activities. They’re the perfect way to keep students engaged as they wait for their turn to practice. I love that it keeps them busy enough that they can also hear their classmates practice too! There’s lots of modeling going down in the speech room!
Valentine’s Articulation: Early Developing Sounds
Seriously?! How precious is this clip art! I can’t wait to bust out this packet again this year! If you have never used cut and paste activities, here’s the rundown: students color everything on their page, then cut out their target articulation words, then glue them around or on the main picture on the top half of the page. These activities truly keep students engaged even when they’re not participating in repetitive drills. I even give my students the option to continue practicing while they wait to work with me again… some kids do, but some kids take a little break! I’m cool with that, because I make my students practice their words 20 times each time they have a turn. 🙂 Here’s a little peek at what the pages look like:
Have a wonderful day! Thank you for visiting my blog!
I love all of the previews you posted and I know I'll love the entire thing! Recently we've decorated flowers (daisies- my favorite!) in anticipation for spring 🙂
My favorite flower… Hmm… Peonies!

It's hard to pick just one! I'll go with a calla lily.
