It’s time for another Slice of Speech! Wow, August was an absolute whirlwind! How is it already September?! I have to say, August may or may not have hit me like a ton of bricks. Suddenly, all the kids in the world moved into my district and I’m knee deep in paperwork. I’ve fallen behind on all things Speech Is Sweet, but I’m happy to say that I feel like I’m on the brink of getting readjusted to balancing blogging, creating materials, and being a school SLP once again! If you didn’t catch this year’s first installment of A Slice of Speech, you can find it HERE. Each month this year, I want to pop in and share my monthly lesson plans with you! If you have a blog or a FB page, feel free to link up with your own lesson plans below! Just use this image to link back to me!
I know some of my friends up north are just starting back. If that’s you, Happy Back to School! I’ve been back in the swing of things for awhile now, and I have to say.. I’m so excited that it’s finally time for fall themed therapy! Here’s what’s going to be happening in my speech room during the month of September!
In articulation, we’re going to continue improving our fine motor skills with the Fall Articulation Bundle. We love to color, cut, and glue in my room! I’ll also be sending home pages from my Apple Articulation packet for homework and using the pages as play-doh smash mats in my classroom. Of course, we will continue working in our interactive articulation notebooks too! My student who stutters will be doing activities from September’s Fluency In a Snap and September’s A Dab of Speech and Language!
I do have quite a few students who are exhibiting final consonant deletion, so I’ll be busting out lots of pages from Apraxia On the Go and my latest apraxia printables packet – it’ll be completed soon! Keep an eye out, it’ll be half off for the first 48 hours or check out the growing bundle that’s half off!
Talk Like A Pirate Day is right around the corner! I love doing a pirate theme in September! We will be reading one of my favorite books – How I Became A Pirate by Melinda Long! I’ll also whip out one of my favorite Super Duper Games, Pirate Talk! My language groups will also be working in their interactive notebooks, using bingo daubers, and creating flip books!
If you’re not familiar with visual lesson plans, they’re super convenient! Just download my plans HERE and click each picture to be taken to the resource! Gotta love technology. 🙂
