Spreading Some Bloggy Love!

Wow!  I just have to say that last week was busy and eventful in many ways.  Because of that, I haven't had a huge amount of time to plan and create materials.  So, this week I'm planning on using some of the AWESOME ideas I've seen on other speech blogs...

With my articulation groups, we're adapting this activity from Crazy Speech World:

Jenn had her students describe a target word (written on the tree) and add those words to leaves that were then glued to the trees.  I'm having my students glue pictures of target articulation words to the leaves...

I have a couple of language kiddos mixed into articulation groups, so they are making fall vocabulary trees using fall vocabulary pictures I found on Pinterest.  I tried to get you the link, but it now says the page does not exist :-(

I also have a group of articulation students who are working less on specific sounds and more on sound sequencing within multisyllabic words.  For those students I'm  using Grammar Gum Balls by Jenna over at Speech Room News:

In my higher functioning (older) language groups, I'm planning on using Trick of Treat Pronouns created by Brea over at Let's Talk Speech-Language Pathology.

For my younger language groups, I bought Halloween Bugs: A Trick or Treat Pop Up Book, that was recently highlighted by Chit Chat and Small Talk.

Pam included an adorable craft to accompany this book - a DIY lift the flap book using paper bags!

I went to drag out my paper bags to make this book, but couldn't find any.  I realized that I had actually donated them to my son's classroom because "What do I need paper bags for?"  I ended up using card stock for my version:

8-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch rectangle, folded to make a 5-1/2 inch square

PS, My son loved the book!

I think I see knock-knock articulation books in my future!

Thank you, thank you, to all of you wonderful bloggers for posting these GREAT ideas!!!  Have you tried any of these ideas in your speech rooms?


  1. Carrie, I love your version of my paper bag book! It's so cute! I just might have to try that the next time!

    Thanks for the link to my blog, too. I just love this online community!


    1. Thanks! I still can't believe I gave away the paper bags! The card stock I used is actually from a card-making kit (pre-folded, I just cut one end in half). It made it pretty easy! Thanks for the download & great idea!

  2. Love the fall artic trees! I will use that with my kiddos!

    1. The kids loved making them! I hope yours do as well!

  3. Thanks for the blog love Carrie! So glad you were able to use that :)

    1. Thanks for sharing the idea, the kids loved it!

  4. I used the Trick or Treat pronouns, and my kids loved it! The graphics are so cute and motivating. :)

    1. Definitely adorable! So glad Brea shared it!
