Sharon Anderson is my winner this month:   

I'm so glad that my calendar activities are being used and enjoyed by your students.  My goal was to incorporate lots of language skills while students have fun learning valuable life skills.  I feel so happy knowing that they are being put to good use.  Please email me at: jenng12slp@gmail.com and I will send a product of your choice from my TPT or Teachers Notebook store.

Get up and Move Giveaway!

Welcome to my first Blog Giveaway!

Brain research shows that learning is enhanced when we move. Our kinesthetic mode of learning is stimulated as well as our circulation, attention, and the release of endorphins (you know the happy hormone).  

Here's a few simple ways that I incorporate basic movement into my work with students:

Expressive Language-Students pass a ball or beanbag back and forth for activities of naming, turn taking, and sentence recall.  

Following Directions-  I often ask students to get up and perform physical activities for following directions.  I may ask the student to stand up, do 10 jumping jacks, open the window, and stretch to the sky.  

Memory Strategies- I teach my middle schoolers mnemonics paired with body movement and visuals.  i.e. the memory peg for one is "sun" in which the student needs to stand up and make the physical outline of the sun with his/her arms while pairing it with the memory item (more to come on this in a later blog post).  

I've collected some great products to get our kids up and moving in speech and language therapy.   Enter below to win them all!  

1.   Carissa from homesweetspeechroom has generously donated Fast Dash, an awesome product for targeting those early sounds.  I know my kids will love playing this one! 

2.  You could win Speech-a-Saurus ' adorable phonemic activities which incorporate movement.  This Sound Bundle can also be used for articulation and following directions.  

3 & 4.   My thoughtful friend Rose over at Speech Snacks was so kind to donate two products that focus on fitness.   First is The Healthy Heart and Language Mart, a fact-filled language product for middle and high school students to build awareness of fitness, health, and nutrition.   And how can you not smile at these adorable Fruits and Veggies that teach language and listening skills to the younger grades.  

5.  Pam from chitchatandsmalltalk (great, active blog to follow) had a fun idea with her Balloon Bop game.  You'll have a chance to win this activity that will not only get your students up and moving but fill the room with laughter during your therapy sessions.  

6.  Laura from All y' All Need is such a great person whom I had the pleasure of getting to know.  Enter for your chance to win Write and Say the Room.  This new, spring-themed, colorful product brings kids on a scavenger hunt throughout your room or beyond.   

7.   This is one of my first products that you may win in the giveaway bundle.  Just as it sounds, Hopscotch Naming is played while students work on word-finding and expressive naming skills.  Three levels are provided for differentiated instruction. 


Good luck everybody and have fun moving with your students!

Heart garland!

My classroom is overflowing with these cheerful, easy-to-make heart chains.  
I've provided instructions for teacher use or you could use as a fun activity for working on the goals of sequencing, following directions, and expressive language.  
Student use:
                   1. Cut out the pictures and have students assemble in correct sequence.
                2.  Students make a chain of hearts according to directions.
                3.  Students use their own words to explain how to make a heart wreath.  
1.  Cut 1 inch strips of colored paper
2.  fold the paper in half with fold facing down

                                           3.  staple the fold and loop downward into a heart

                                          4.  hold the heart in place as you fold a second strip
                                               of paper onto the bottom of the heart
                                            5.  staple the fold and repeat and repeat until
                                                 you have the desired length.  Put a final staple
                                                 on the bottom of the last heart.  
I hope you enjoy these festive decorations!
