What Can You Find At The Beach?

How many of you work during the summer?  This will be my 2nd year working during the summer after having a baby.  Last year, the teacher and I decided to use themes each week.  One theme we used was the beach.  This year, I decided to make my own activity that could be used with a variety of students.
There are 16 pages that target simple sentences.  
 An extension activity includes 16 pages that include an adjective, preposition, and location.

What are you all doing to get ready for BHSM?  Every year, I try to hand out some informational text to teachers.  Some years I'm more creative than others, depending on how crazy my year is going. This year I decided to use boardmaker pictures of lips and ears.  On the back side of each picture, I compiled a list of strategies that I found online (I can't remember the website).

Baby Animals

This week in Kindergarten, vocabulary instruction is focusing on baby animal names.  We are reading many stories on the various names given to baby animals, concentrating on 8 vocabulary words.  I'm including a couple matching activities, a sound puzzle, and finger puppets to address this goal.  Each activity (with the exception of the print out) comes from my daughter's room!

Easter Home Kit

I know I am not alone when I say that this time of year is super chaotic!  To top if off, St. Patrick's Day and Easter are extremely too close.  I felt like my planning for both holidays has been rushed. With that said, I still wanted to squeeze in some time to put together a home Easter kit for my students.  I tried to include activities specific to each individual goal.  I stuffed pieces of paper in each egg that targeted different skills, such as following directions, articulation, synoyms, antonyms, vocabulary, and sentence formulation.  I also added a bunny to work on prepositions.  They all included fun, decorative pencils in a cute carrot pouch.  Anytime I can incorporate carryover while still engaging the students, makes me happy!  Happy Easter!

Dr. Seuss's Birthday

In celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday, we are reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.  I paired this book with a rhyming activity.  I used words found in the book and wrote them on colored construction paper.  Students picked cards from a pile and matched it to its rhyming pair.  To modify this activity, some students were given one fish word and two choices (one that rhymed and one that did not).

Tying in Conjunctions

Are you looking for fresh new ideas to target conjunctions into your therapy sessions?  Check out my new activity that incorporates coordinating and subordinating conjunctions into sentences.  My students enjoyed using their "tie" to combine sentences.
