For the Love of Speech Blog Hop Image

I am SO excited to be collaborating with my SLPeeps again for another blog hop! This one is related to Valentine's Day! It is taking place February 1st-4th, 2015. Some of the bloggers' materials are free samples of a product, some are free for a limited time, and some will be free forever. Because I run the website Speechie Freebies and will be linking this to there (hello if you came over from that website and welcome!!), mine will be free forever. In order to make sure you get all of the materials in this blog hop for free, download them between the dates listed above to guarantee it! There are about 28 freebies in total if you follow the entire loop! Thank you to Speech to the Core and The Speech Owl for organizing this blog hop!

I am currently working with PreK-2nd grade students, and many of my ECSE students have yes/no question goals. Therefore, when it was time to decide what type of activity i was going to contribute to this blog hop, I thought of them and that's what I created!

Will You Be My Valentine? Yes/No Questions Preview Image

There are 28 cards with yes/no questions on them related to Valentine's Day images! Children can answer the questions by verbalizing "yes" or "no", or by pointing to the yes or no symbol on each card (green check mark for yes; red canceled out symbol for no). Some of my students are non-verbal or have apraxia of speech, so I love having both options available. You can print, cut out, and laminate the cards for durability. Click here or on the image above to download the free PDF file from my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

I hope these flash cards are as helpful for you as they will be for me! Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I would love it if you would follow me on social media! I have been more active on Facebook and Instagram lately, but I have lots of blog posts coming up soon as well! I took a little break when I started my new job, and now it is almost done!

Last Day to Vote to Support Speech-Language Pathology Blogs in the Edublog Awards of 2014!

Edublog Awards 2014 Best Group Blog

With ASHA still on my tongue and the fun that went with it, I completely forgot to check the Edublog awards for 2014. Then, when I did, I was so overwhelmed with excitement that I forgot to post about it! Oops! I am excited to announce that the other blog that I manage, Speechie Freebies, made the short list for Best Group Blog again this year! We are one of 24 blogs that made it to the short list! Congratulations to the bloggers/authors on the Speechie Freebies team! We have doubled our authors this year as well as followers, and the quality shows! This couldn't have happened without you! I am incredibly thankful for all of my readers! I am continuing my goal to make sure that no speech-language pathologist is without materials!

Creating Content Again For Speechie Freebies

Obviously I have been gone for a while. I will explain that in my next posts.

What I have missed the most is creating free content on my other website, Speechie Freebies. I have been kind of running things behind the scenes and creating the linky parties for Friday FreeBEES, but I would like to contribute more!

For now, I would like to present this free venn diagram I created a while back to compare and contrast the two books "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type" and "Giggle Giggle Quack" by: Doreen Cronin!

I used these books at the beginning of the year last year and my students loved them! I love the personalities that Doreen Cronin has given her characters! We did a lot of comparing and contrasting literature throughout the year in my vocabulary groups, so I created a venn diagram to compare and contrast these two books!
