Learning the alphabet, all 26 letters, can be daunting. Some pick it up quickly through repeated exposure to educational TV shows, DVD’s, books, and toys. Others seem to need a little extra help. There is so much to learn.
Last week, I posted about Common Core Math Vocabulary. Two of the words on the kindergarten list were 'larger' and 'smaller'---so I decided to modify a Tarheel Reader book, going beyond 'big' and 'little'.

As part of my celebration of Better Hearing and Speech Month, a blog reader, Connie Ziko, is sharing some of her old speech therapy materials. It's clear I'm still a newby in this field. I have colorful fun decks and clipart galore.
Today is the last day of April and tomorrow begins May, or what SLP's across the globe lovingly refer to as "Better Speech and Hearing Month"! This year the slogan for BSHM is "Helping People Communicate".

It's another Monday, and it's a lovely 65-degrees over here in Michigan. Finally Spring has arrived! :) Today I am posting a fabulous activity packet that touches on verbs, pronouns, and even prepositions.

Today, we celebrate Earth Day. Perhaps you’re marking the occasion by attending a volunteer clean-up event in your neighborhood, talking with your children about recycling, or choosing to bike to work, all in the name of environmental stewardship.
I live with talkers, though my children are both young teens so I gather this could change any day. I hear about the school day, friends, homework, funny anecdotes when I pick them up at school and I love being a part of their life in this way.
Today I will be reviewing Teach Speech 365's activity: There Was A Silly SLP (Plurals)! This activity includes an interactive story that is an original creation from Teach Speech! It is about an SLP that gets glue all over her!
