After a real winter here in South Louisiana (we don’t get too many of those), Spring has officially sprung! My husband is an avid gardener and he is in the process of whipping our yard and gardens into shape. I wish I could brag that I have been knee deep in Spring cleaning, but alas, I have not been. As any school SLP knows, this time of the school year is CRAZY BUSY and when I get home, all I can muster the strength to do is:
things are still hopping in my speech room.
We will probably be doing this continually all the way until Easter because we have 22 passages (and the questions) to get through.
These short passages that my students can actually digest are perfect for tackling comprehension skills (compare/contrast, main idea, making inferences, giving opinions, listening for details, etc).
We painstakingly read and discuss each one and conquer the questions.
I’ve found it high interest and useful for multiple skills.
As usual, some of my mixed groups are working on skills using open ended board games.
With my younger students who aren’t quite ready for Easter around the World, we are reading Hopper Hunts for Spring, one of my favorite storybooks for his time of year.
Win any 3 of my products mentioned here PLUS Figuratively Speeching SLP’s Spring Idioms packet!! The winner will be announced on Friday!
Just enter below, and I’d love to hear what’s hopping in your speech room!
