Come on in and see what’s going on!
I absolutely LOVE Groundhog Day. This quirky American tradition weirds my students out- which makes for lots of discussion! Here we are using the Groundhog Quick Drill (with the articulation cans)! We have also been reading about Punxsutawney Phil in inclusion (and watching videos of Groundhog Day to build background knowledge.
There will be many-a-bead thrown in the speech room this week anytime my students give me some good communication!
On Friday- just before we leave for our 4 day Mardi Gras break- I will be sharing my personal photos from Mardi Gras, playing some traditional Mardi Gras music, sharing videos of my family’s traditions, and showing them my husband’s traditional Cajun Mardi Gras costume, mask and capichon (hat).You can see my hubby decked out in his costume HERE.
(continuing my life long quest to rid the world of the word “Valentime.”)
It’s amazing how tickled kids can get just by slipping a card into a make-believe mailbox. I hope they never lose that – that thing that lets them get so much happiness from something so simple.
The book, The Valentine Grump, went so well with these activities. It’s about how getting a valentine in the mail even makes the grumpiest of grumps happy.
It’s hot off the press in my TPT store 🙂
We’ve been doing lots of articulation homework from my Valentine’s Day Fun Pack...
…AND some listening/following directions practice from the same packet.
Oh my, this was so hard for them 🙁
In honor of all the love going on, I made the trek to Target yesterday to gather up some Valentine treats for one and all!
I love the peel-and-stick gems from Lake Shore and the Foam beads from Oriental Trading. They make craft projects easy and mess-free.
See statement above about how everyone loves a good crown haha.
Students did tasks (like following directions, answering questions or practicing articulation target words) to earn their jewels.
I love the "We don't hide the crazy" saying in your first picture!!! Mardi Gras sounds like so much fun!
I keep having to pull out the sweaters, then try to figure out what else to wear during our warm days. It's winter…it's supposed to be cold! 🙂
I think we all need to have a field trip to your speech room and witness first hand all of the fun your students are having!
Mia, I think I have all of your Mardi Gras activities. I particularly like the Reading and Responding set. I can only imagine how fun Mardi Gras is in Louisiana!
