I Dare You Articulation Application Review

I Dare You Articulation app icon

If you loved Erik X. Raj's Multiple Choice Articulation application, then you will like his latest application - I Dare You Articulation! Take all of the great parts from Multiple Choice Articulation - the narration, the fun, the motivational factors, the simplicity and cleanness of the application - and exponentially add more motivation/fun! What you get is I Dare You Articulation! Believe me and picture this - groups of third and fourth grade students coming into my classroom and expecting drill practice sit at the table to begin speech; during the session they are out of their seats, giggling, and motivated to move on to practice the next articulation sentence; after the session, students are all out of their seats begging me to play the application again! I kid you not, I have never seen my third and fourth graders so motivated and energized at 8:15 am to practice their articulation sounds! Continue reading to learn more about how to use this application to spice up your articulation therapy sessions!

Reading Comprehension Camp Application Review

Reading Comprehension Camp app icon

I have a significant number of students on my caseload who either have auditory processing disorder, language processing disorder, or a learning disability. We work over and over again on their ability to recall information from a story in an organized, sequential manner. In our fourth grade classrooms, each student has an iPad, so whenever my students are able to bring theirs to therapy, they are extremely excited! I ended up installing Reading Comprehension Camp on two iPads for my fourth graders to use simultaneously and was able to choose the question types that they had the most difficulty on. It was a life-saver and a great motivator for them to be able to use this application! To learn more about how you can use it in therapy, continue reading!

Speech FlipBook Application Review

Speech FlipBook app icon

You've seen the flipbooks made out of notecard flipbooks with binding on Pinterest. Images of these have been shared thousands of times. In fact, I had even created my own. Unfortunately, I often would misplace the small notecard flipbook, children would accidentally tear the pages when turning them, if you use marker, it will bleed through the paper, and if the edges were not cut the same way, it would be difficult and rather annoying to flip the pages. There is only one other flipbook application for speech, and it comes with one sound but is $9.99 for each additional sound. If you're anything like me, you cannot afford to pay that much for in-app purchases for multiple sounds. To read my review of this application, continue reading below.

First TpT Materials!

Teachers Pay Teachers logo

It's been a long time coming. For months and months I have written so many ideas down in my notebooks about different materials that I wanted to create. Materials that would not only help my students, but that I could share with others! After a year of app reviews and free materials, I realized that managing a blog without a profit it very difficult. As much as I would LOVE to make everything free forever, I need to support this website, my new website (Speechie Freebies), my wedding, and make sure that the time I spend after the long school day doesn't only cause me stress, but something comes out of it.

Sales on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) rolled by and I sat by watching. Blog hops and giveaways passed and I had nothing to contribute. I created my first material around the beginning of winter, but I wasn't quite sure how to market it. Finally, I set my foot down and decided that I needed to have something completed by the St. Patrick's sale on TpT and our upcoming SLP giveaway (see next post). To see my latest products, continue reading!
