What’s in my cart? 3 million teachers sale!

I have to admit, I was a little bummed when there was no Super Bowl sale on TpT this year.  Those winter blues are always a good time for some retail therapy (and I don’t care to watch the game).  Luckily, TpT is throwing a sale at the end of this month, February 27-28, in honor of having 3 million teachers as part of their site.  Can you believe it?!  Three MILLION teachers are using TpT to share ideas and downloads. I just LOVE being a member of this incredible website!

I’ve decided to link up with Jenna @ SpeechRoomNews to show you what I plan to buy during the sale.  I’ve heard great things about these products from my blogging friends, so you know they’ll be great additions to your therapy library!

Image

First, here are some products from my store that you may not already own, but will definitely benefit your caseload.

Image

Spring Expressive Language Pack – a great activity for spring!  (Which CANNOT get here soon enough!)

Image

Listening Comprehension with Visuals: Part Two – this is a follow up to one of my most popular downloads with some spruced up additions, including complex sentences and proper nouns.

Image

Superhero Syntax – a great way to target all of those goals you’ve derived from the PLS, when you can’t find anything to target these skills receptively!

Image

“If You Give A…” bundle – I’ve bundled my popular Laura Numeroff themed book companions into one money saving download!

Now for what I plan to buy!

Intergalactic Articulation for Speech Therapy: /r, s, l, ch, sh, j th/ – I already have the early sound version of this and just NEED to have the later sounds one!

Image

Visual Guide for How to Take 3 Turns in Conversation – I have a few students working on this skill and I just haven’t gained any ground with them recently.  Hoping this will help!

Image

Articulation Menus – I’ve seen and heard tons about this product and have just forgotten to move it from my wishlist to my cart in previous sales.  I’ve moved so many kids to carryover recently, I think this will be a hit with them!

Image

In addition to those that are in my cart, I want to tell you about somethings I already own (because you should own them, too!)

Tackling Apraxia CV & CVC Early Sounds Edition is absolutely perfect.  It’s useful, appropriate for very young students, and motivating!  I had just added a preschooler with apraxia to caseload when Mia added this product to her shop, so I jumped at it!

Mia McDaniel

Vocabulary to Improve Comprehension of Test Questions and Classroom Assignments is an essential product.  During an IEP meeting last year, a parent described a situation where her son knew the answer to a test, but got it wrong because he didn’t understand the vocabulary.  I started making a list of the typical “test” vocabulary that might trip up some students.  I had about 5 words.  Jessica has a product with 38 such words that almost all students will benefit from learning, even those without language disorders!  Go grab this product.  It’s truly a steal!

original-1086855-1

That’s what’s in my cart for this sale!  Everything in my store will be 20% off, so use the code TPT3 to get an extra 10% off for a total of 28% off regular prices.

No-Print Product Review

This week I had the pleasure of trying out my first “no print” activity.  On the surface, this type of product looks just like any other, however, it works just like an app!

Jess from Figuratively Speeching was kind enough to give me a copy of her Associations: An Interactive No Print Activity.  Associations

There’s a variety of ways that you can use the activity; I chose to use it on my Smart Board.  Don’t worry – if you don’t have a Smart Board you can use it on your iPad, laptop, or even your iPhone!

(For something like this, it’s handy to have it saved on your iPad or computer.   If you’re wondering how to save such a thing on your iPad, Dropbox is a great app for such a thing!  Go download it!)

I chose to use this activity with a group of moderate to severe language disordered students who all happen to have autism.  All are at a different level, both receptively and expressively, but this was easy to adapt to each student’s ability and goals.

When you first open the file (a PDF), the cover page will pop up.  I used this opportunity to give one student a direction: Touch the white flower next to the cat.”  (And he did it correctly!)

The next page to appear is the directions page.  I had read this before I started, so again I had the student click “next” to get to the first question.

My first student needed tons of help to answer this question.  (He didn’t even know what bacon was!  Poor kid is missing out!)  After I prompted his threw it, I was also able to follow up the question with, “When do we eat bacon and eggs?”  Again, he needed a lot of help to avoid echolalia and answer this when question.

For the next aspect of the activity, I moved on to a different student whose language skills are a little higher.  I clicked the “MC” that you see on the right side of the screen.  He had a multiple choice choice for how bason and eggs go together.  After reading his choices, he was able to answer it correctly!  If you simply click the correct go together, you are taken to the main page which has links to all of the questions in the activity on it.

I used this opportunity to ask him how they go together again.  Without having the written visual in front of him, it was a little more difficult and he needed prompting.

For another student in this group, associations are too high level.  Instead of having him select the go together, I asked him a question about object functions.  The associations question asked what went with “cookie”; I asked, “Which one do you drink?”  In the field of 3 given, “milk” was the correct answer so I just covered the question and let him choose according to my question.

My students, especially my ASD population, LOVE anything that has to do with interactive technology.  This activity is versatile, portable, and affordable!  I was able to target, not only associations, but wh- questions, following directions, and object functions.  Not to mention, my students worked on taking turns and sitting patiently while working their classmate go.

You can win your copy of this outstanding product below by entering the Rafflecopter.  Thanks, Jess, for giving me an extra copy to hand out to a lucky reader! (Click the Rafflecopter link to find the widget and enter!)

How Boardmaker Power Templates Will Change Your Life!

We all know how wonderful the Boardmaker software is.  For the longest time, I used it to make print activities only.  I had no idea how to make interactive projects, so I was content to print and go.  It still made my life much easier.

THEN!  A colleague showed me “Power Templates” and I haven’t looked back since!  These templates are for use with Boardmaker Plus.  The templates are made by Mayer Johnson and able to be personalized to target any area you need.  There are a variety of formats, including multiple choice questions (with a variety of field sizes), yes/no, sorting, and more.
First, you will need to have a Boardmaker Share account (now called Boardmaker Achieve).  Then, access the activities made by the user “boardmakerachieve” (aka Mayer Johnson).  They can all be found here.
Then, scroll way down to the bottom of the page (about 7/8 of the way down in my browser):
Here, you’ve hit the jackpot!

The templates that I use the most are: Yes/No, Multiple Choice, Sorting, True/False, & Flashcards. There are a bunch more on here that I suggest you explore once you get the hang of these.
Now, I will show you how to make a multiple choice activity.  Start by downloading the template.
A zip file will be downloaded; it comes with templates for 2, 3, and 4 choices (in this case, because we are doing a multiple choice activity).  Once you download this template, DO NOT alter it in ANYWAY!  Don’t alter file names, locations, don’t add or subtract any information.  Just don’t touch them.  (Consider yourself warned!)
Now, find where these zip files were downloaded to on your computer.  Mine automatically go to my “downloads” folder, but yours could be different.  Keep this folder open on your desktop.

Next, find where all of your Boardmaker files are.  There is likely a folder in your documents folder called “My Boards” (unless you’ve manually changed it after installing Boardmaker).  Open your “My Boards” folder and create a NEW folder.  Title it “Templates” (or something else, if you choose).

Next, you are going to unzip or “extract” the zip files that contain the templates.  You should extract them to the “Templates” folder you just created.  Here’s you get to my “templates” folder, but yours may be different:

 Repeat the same extracting steps for all of the templates you chose to download.

If you go into the templates folder, and open the “Multiple Choice” template folder, you will find 6 different files: 3 blank and 3 with sample content.  Most times I delete the sample content ones, because I don’t use them.  That way, you are left with 3 different multiple choice templates: 2, 3, and 4 answer choices.

I am going to show you how to make an activity with the 3 answer choices template.  In order to do that, you must select that FOLDER and copy the entire folder.  I use Ctrl+C to copy; you could also right click the folder and select “copy”.

Now, you are going to get out of the Templates folder and make a new folder for your FINISHED activities. You can call it whatever you’d like.  I usually group mine by the area of language it targets (eg.: “questions”, “concepts”, etc.).  I have further grouped my questions, as shown below.

Open the folder where you are going to keep your finished activities (in my case – “questions”).  Paste the template that you just copied into this folder (ctrl V).

Now the copy of your template is pasted in the correct folder.  Now you will rename the folder.  And ONLY the FOLDER.  Consider yourself warned.  Do NOT alter the names of any files within this folder or the activity won’t work.

I’m going to make an activity about “Where” questions so that’s what I’ve called my folder.

Now open the folder.  There are many BM files and some folders in here.  You only need to use one of these.  Do not even open the others!  The one that you are concerned with is always the one with “MAIN” in the title.  The specific name of the file will vary, depending on which type of activity you are creating (i.e. multiple choice vs. sorting).

Open this file  – the one with “MAIN” in the title.  If you already have BM open on your computer, the board will open in “edit” mode.  You’ll need to change it to “use” mode.  To do so, hit Ctrl+U (as is “use”).  If BM is not already open on your computer, I’m pretty sure the board will open automatically in “use” mode.  You can tell the difference because edit mode has a toolbar (file, edit, etc.) at the top and a yellow ruler along the top and left side.

 Just as the words on the bottom suggest, you will need to select the = key to edit the questions.  Again, the = key will only do anything if you are in use mode.  You will be taken to the below screen:

Start by typing your first question into the white box on the top left.  Select “enter”.  (***Don’t put a question mark.  The program doesn’t recognize them and it makes my computer freeze.)  Your first question should jump to the first pale green box after you push “enter”.  Next, you will type the correct answer for this question.  Again, click enter. Then, type 3 foil (wrong) answers in the other 3 boxes.  Now, if you type one word, the image will populate for you.  But, since “where” questions require more than one word, type all of the words first.  We can change the pictures later.  Same thing for multiple meaning words.  If you don’t like the picture it automatically chooses, you can change it manually after you’ve entered all of your questions and answers.  The questions do not get a picture.

Once you’ve entered all of your questions and answer, hit Esc on your keyboard.  This will take you to “edit” mode and allow you to add/change the pictures.

Open the symbol finder (the little head button in the top left).

 Type the key word of the answer into the symbol finder and find your best image.

Be sure to DELETE the word from the symbol finder box.  (*Tip: If you type “tab” then “delete” it will do this action for you quickly.)  The box you are concerned with here has the word “cafeteria” highlighted in it.

Now, put your selected symbol, without the word, into the corresponding white box by clicking the correct box.

Repeat these steps for the rest of the correct and incorrect answers.  If it automatically put an image in this box for you and you wish to change it, place the symbol and be sure to choose “replace” when the box pops up.  See below.

After you’ve added all of your symbols, be sure to SAVE your file.  BUT, don’t save as, just save it with the same name.  If you’re like I am and have a slight case of OCD, it’s a good idea to just hit Crtl+S every 3 seconds while editing this board.

This screen only allows you 5 questions.  Once you’ve entered your 5th question, a new button will pop up to take you to questions 6-10.  The max number of questions per activity is 10.

After you’ve finished your 5th question, click the “6-10” button (in “use” mode only) and you will be taken to an identical screen, but for the second half of questions.

Remember to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE when in edit mode. To get to the main screen and start playing your activity, press the back arrow on the bottom right.  This will take you to your home screen (the “MAIN” file).

From here, you can start playing your activity!  There are two options for play: practice and quiz. Practice allows 2 wrong answers, then prompts the correct answer.  Quiz is like cold probes and only allows for one attempt of each question.  Click the version you want to play, then click “go”.  ***In order to play, you must be in “use” mode.

Below is an example of what a sorting activity looks like.  (I added the visuals to the bottom right corners of the box myself.  You need to do this manually.)

After you’ve chosen the wrong answer twice,  the answer choices will look like this.

The beauty of these activities is that the computer constantly varies the order of the questions and the position of the answers. AND you also get your data printed out for you when you are finished.

Here is what the screen will look like after the last question has been answered:

Just click “print report” and you will be brought to a screen like this:

Type your student’s name in the box, then click the printer icon.  Voila!  You have your data right there for you!  The above report is from an activity done in “practice” mode (remember – max 3 trials per question).  You can see how many attempts there were in the far right column.  As you can see, I purposely got “seagull” wrong all three times, so that item gets an “X”.  Had I gotten it right when prompted (with the other 3 items grayed out), this would have been counted as a correct response, but with 2 attempts listed in the far right column.  If you’d rather a “cold probe” approach, choose “quiz” at the beginning of the activity.

When I use these in therapy, I open the activity I want my student to work on and let them complete it on the SmartBoard.  They LOVE it!  If you don’t have a Smartboard, your student could also play the old fashioned way – with the computer and the mouse! (Or whatever adaptive equipment you have set up: scanning buttons, touch screen, etc.)

To find all of the Power Templates that I’ve made, visit my Boardmaker Share (now Boardmaker Achieve) page here.

***Side note – if you’ve recently installed Boardmaker on your computer and your operating system is Vista, then the images will not load correctly for you.  But, there is a fix!  Go to the Start Menu>Programs>Mayer Johnson>Check for Updates.  It will give you an update for the installation process which will put all the necessary items where they belong.  Then, your power templates will work as they should.  If you have Vista or a late Windows operating system, you might want to try checking for updates before you use the power templates and get frustrated as to why they won’t work.  Not like I’m speaking from experience or anything.

Mmm, pumpkin pie!

So I know Thanksgiving has come and gone, but I just had to share this adorable craft.  Maybe you can use it next year!  Unlike many people, I had to work on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of Thanksgiving week.  I see my intellectual disabilities rooms with the OT on Tuesdays, so when I saw this pin, I had to make this craft with the ID classes!  (The pin I used is “broken”, but I just used the picture as a jumping off point.)

My OT friend has a student with her this semester, so luckily we had some help preparing the supplies beforehand.  Jackie, the OT student, pre-cut the paper plates and glued the orange paper to them.  She also cut the “crusts” from some awesome corrugated paper our art teacher has.  If you are doing this with your students, you could absolutely have them try to cut the paper plates themselves – maybe just draw a thick black line on the back, first. 

Here’s all of our supplies before we started:

This corrugated paper is great for feeling “bumpy”.

There is a slice of pie and a crust for each student.  We used cinnamon, as you can see, but you could also use pumpkin pie spice.  (We had used cinnamon before in an earlier craft, so it was easily accessible.) At the beginning of the session, we talked about what we were making and Thanksgiving, etc.

We poured glue in a suction bowl and added a little water to it to thin it out.  The students used a wide-handled paint brush to spread the glue from the bowl onto the white part of their pie slice.  This was great for following directions: “Put glue on the white.”  Then we added the crust.  We talked about how the crust felt “bumpy” and the orange pie felt “smooth”.

We used a slant board, so the clip on the top was great for holding the crust in place as we added glue and cinnamon to the orange part of the pie (our second step!).  We told the students to “put glue on orange” then we sprinkled some cinnamon onto it.  We, of course, let them have a good sniff of the cinnamon before putting it on their pie.  I love watching their little noses twitch!

Last, we added a little more glue and a cotton ball on top for the whipped cream!  Some students LOVED to feel the cotton ball in their hand and squish it while others hated it.  Sensory needs/preferences are so interesting to me!

Here’s one batch of our finished products!

Aren’t they just so cute?!

I also made a quick BoardMaker question activity for the students to do on the Smart Board when we were finished.  It asked the following questions: “What shape is our slice of pie?”; “What did we make?”; “When do we eat pumpkin pie?”; “What color is pumpkin pie?”.  My students very much prefer these question/answer activities using technology, but you could also make one using Boardmaker and a printed sheet (answer with Bingo dabbers) if you don’t have a Smart Board.  Or use your iPad and the amazing app See.Touch.Learn. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I’m very thankful for the opportunities this blog, and all of you, have brought to my life!

Teacher Evaluation and SLPs

I’ve heard much discussion from you (SLPs) about the method that your district/state uses to evaluate your performance.  Some have said they are evaluated much like the teachers are, others said they’re not evaluated yet because the district is unsure how to do so.

In my district, all teachers, SLPs, OTs, PTs, specialists, etc. are on a 3 year “cycle”.  We are to be collecting evidence of our performance on two of those years and on a third year we must present it as proof we are effective.  As part of our “case” that we are effective, all teachers and specialists  must write a goal for themselves.  I’ve heard many of you have to write similar goals for yourselves – and are stressing about how to write it!  So, I’m going to share mine with you. 

I wrote this last year, with the help of our Communication Disorders department supervisors.  They gave us a couple of examples of goals – one from each area of speech/language disorders.  I chose to go with articulation because I have a good number of students working on it and it seemed easiest to prove.

Feel free to use my goal as a jumping off point for yours!  It reads:

In the current year, selected students receiving S/L services whose goals address articulation will make measurable progress in the production of targeted sounds.   Using a program created articulation rubric to measure progress, all students will improve at least 25% from baseline.  Data collection will be measured from the beginning of therapy 2012 and compared to data collected twice a year. “

We were only obligated to track the progress of a handful of students, not all.  If you have to do all of your students, welp, sorry – I can’t help you out there.  😦 

I’ve uploaded the rubric I used to my Google docs.  Find it here and feel free to use it!   To use the rubric, I just put an “X” in the box if the student was producing his/her sound with at least 80% accuracy in the specified context.  The total possible points on this rubric is 24.  If the student starts with 10 points on the rubric in September, in order to meet your goal, he/she would have to have improved by 25% on the rubric, or achieve 13 points (12.5 but I rounded…) by June.  Make sense?  If you have any questions, I would love to try to answer them.  Leave them in the comments!

I hope this helps some of you out!

A peak into my personal life

 
You may have noticed that my blog and Facebook page have been a little quiet this summer… Well, that’s because I got married!  Many people asked me to share pictures, so this post is going to be strictly wedding related, with nothing at all to do with SLP!  (You’ve been warned.  Get ready for yellow and gray overload if you read on!  ❤ ) 
 
 
There’s going to be a lot of pictures on here – it’s really hard to pick favorites!  My photographers was SOOOOO awesome and creative!  If you live on Long Island and are getting married soon, you need to use North Island Photography!!!!! Our ceremony and reception were at the Watermill.  Their food is beyond words outstanding!
 
 
 
I’ll start with the “details”:
 
 
our invitation with our rings on it



My yellow shoes!!!!  I loved them!








 

The wrap around my bouquet is the sleeve from my mom’s wedding gown.  (Yes, sleeve!)  I wanted as little green in the bouquet as possible and tried to bring some gray in it.  The leaves around the perimeter are called “dusty miller” and have a gray-ish tinge to them.  And I loved the whispy feathers!  It was awesome!  My flowers were all done by Bayport Flower Houses.  She had SUCH great ideas!  I definitely recommend them!

My dad passed away 5 years ago.  That blue heart is from one of his shirts (his nickname was “Denim” because it’s basically all he wore… haha) that my mom sewed into my dress.  IT was my “something blue”.

The frame/locket thing was hanging from my bouquet and has a picture of me and him on one side (visible) and a picture from my parents’ wedding on the other.

 
 

Here is a collection of very “pinteresting” getting ready shots 😉
 

 

My gift to my bridesmaids was these pink robes that are monogrammed.  I also bought myself one in white.  Everyone really seemed to love them!  We all really did wear them that whole morning!  🙂

 



My maid of honor helping lace up my dress.  I just kept saying, “PULL!” because I wanted it as tight as possible so it wouldn’t go anywhere!

My sweet little cousin (and bridesmaid) bought me this hanger for my dress that has my new last name on it.  I just happened to place it there on the bed when I took my dress off; I love how my photographer captured this picture!

 
My garter was a tribute to my Alma Mater and also my something borrowed.  Years ago, my roommates and I always said that when the first of us got married, we’d buy her an ECU garter.  Then, we’d pass it on to the next ones as their “something borrowed”.  I actually made this for my friend Allie who got married last summer.  This summer, I borrowed it!  My photographer kindly asked, “Can I ask what’s with the skull and crossbones?”  HAHAHA!  Guess the rest of me didn’t strike her as the “skulls” kinda girl…



my mom 🙂
leaving the house!
 

We did a “first look” because our ceremony and reception were both at the same place with no time in between. We didn’t want to miss cocktail hour – even though we did end up missing it.  We both met at a park nearby where we grew up (on Long Island).



Justin was a little late (even though I made all of the groomsmen a very pinteresting schedule of the day!  haha) so I had some individual shots.



We still haven’t seen eachother at this point…



This is the first time we saw each other that day!

And now my favorite ones – the ones with our precious boy Porter!



By the way – Porter’s tuxedo came from Big Lots but was originally backwards (the “shirt” was on his back… weird) so my mom sewed it so it was turned it around correctly.  I also got the yellow bowtie at the Target Dollar Spot around Easter for $1!!!  It was a kid’s tie.  My mom just sewed it on.  The outfit just wraps around his collar and then velcros onto his legs/paws.  He was SO good with it on!  And my, he’s handsome!  🙂


I was so nervous he’d lick my makeup off!
 
 
It was SO hot that day that I was done at the park and kind of just wanted to get in the air conditioning so my makeup didn’t melt off and my hair didn’t get sweaty.  When we got to the venue, we went outside in the somewhat shady area to take some bridal party pictures.



Pinterest anyone?  😉

Justin is a twin. So that people could differentiate between him and his brother, Justin wore a bowtie while all of the other groomsmen wore long ties. Regardless, right before we did our “first look”, Jason (Justin’s twin) was walking up to me and my mom said, “Honey! I don’t think they’re ready yet!” Yes, they’re very identical.




hands down, our favorite picture of the day!

And now for the ceremony!
 
My brother walking my mom in




Justin and his groomsmen, after his best man finished walking up the aisle!



my sweet brother walking me down the aisle




I just LOVE the yellow and gray!  The bridesmaids’ flowers were stunning, too!



I love this perspective



The man that married us is not a member of the clergy.  He was ordained online, I believe, after his son asked him to perform his marriage ceremony.  His wife and my mom have worked together and been friends for over 40 years!  He’s been friends with my dad and family for a long time.  It was better having him than picking someone random off of a list provided by the venue…



And we’re MARRIED!  I love the “pep” in Justin’s step here.
 
 
After the ceremony, we went off into the bridal suite to take some more pictures!



Yes, Justin is pouring that champagne.  Or as I like to call it, a la Heather Dubrow from RHOC, “champs”! 😉



I love how this picture shows the back of my dress ❤

Here are some pictures of the ceremony room.  Many of my ideas and DIY projects are obviously from Pinterest!


Table numbers – The blurry picture frame described how to post pictures to our Instagram and Shutterfly sites.




This was set up on the table with the seating cards.  It’s our parents’ and grandparents’ wedding pictures.

These ADORABLE monograms (including the Mr. & Mrs.) are from Mint Julep Monograms.



I made the menus myself.



This was our sweetheart table.  I got that Mr. & Mrs. plaque from Groopdealz.



I love that every table is against the dance floor. 



Yellow and gray cake!
 
 
These are all of my first cousins – minus only 2.



My cousins who were bridesmaids and my brother – the family members in the wedding party
2 of my cousins.  The three of us are pretty inseparable – even though we all live in different states right now!
 
Even though these three are my cousins, I feel like their surrogate sister.  We grew up just a mile from each other and I spent my summer days with them while my parents were at work.



Justin and I have been best friends since 9th grade.  This is our whole group from high school – going strong for over 13 years!



My college friends.  Go Pirates!  ARRRGH! (That’s a pirate hook, btw.  Kinda like ECU’s version of the “Hook ’em horns” thing UT does.)



Now for the reception!

Our first dance was to “Then” by Brad Paisley.

 
During Jason’s toast, he confirmed that he is not, in fact, the groom.  He then gave Justin a name tag.  Jason’s name tag read, “Not Justin”.  It went over big :-)
 
“Not Justin”



Us watching the best man’s speech

Then came the crazy dancing.  My niece and nephew were the youngest ones there – and they partied the hardest!  They did not leave the dance floor.  At. All!  It was great!  Here are some of my favorite shots of us dancing with them!



He loves a pretty girl!  The girl is Justin’s cousin.  My nephew loved the girl in the sparkly dress 🙂  She taught him how to do the Saturday Night Fever Dance – he quickly obliged!  He was smitten!



I heard this one was still dancing on her 30 minute ride home!

 



He touched a little to my chin… and it fell down my dress.  Oops!  haha



Justin dancing with his mom while my high school group and I watch.



Dacning with my brother ❤



The bouquet toss…
The 2 year old caught it!
 
 
Another Pinterest!  We got suspenders as part of the tuxes JUST for this picture.  And I LOVE IT!  😀
 
Part of the groomsmen’s gifts were these adorable gray and yellow socks (from Express).

 
 
 
So, there you have it!  I hope you enjoyed them!
 

***I have not been paid to mention the vendors or websites that I used.  I just feel that strongly about them!
