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.

Valentine's Day

One of my favorite times of the year has come...Valentine's Day! I relish in the opportunity to express how much my loved ones mean to me and Valentine's Day is no different!  A few times a year I allow my students to work on crafts and playdoh.  I mean who doesn't love playdoh?! This year our V-Day cards came out so cute (the one shown is from my daughter to her Dado).  In the center is a heart that says, "I love you because..." and the surrounding flaps describes the many reasons why they are loved so much.  Then, we made playdoh "cookies" just because it's so fun to squish and squeeze.
