TpT Shining Stars Linky Party!

I'm delighted to be linking up with SLPRunner for her very first time hosting a linky party! What is this all about? Well, TeacherspayTeachers is throwing a BIG sale for ONE day----Wednesday, August 20th! Most sellers will have their stores on sale AND you can get another 10% off using a special code. Several of us are contributing ideas to help you choose what to buy.

You have just a few days to fill your shopping cart and I have some suggestions for you. Those of you who have purchased from me know that my products are designed to be other words...the products I create are designed for you to use with mixed groups--both language and articulation. With that in mind, here are a few favorites from my store that I think will help you address multiple goals, all while having fun!

First, is my Roll-A-Bingo series...and here is the R version! My students LOVE this activity and you can get a TON of productions while playing it. As mentioned above, the really cool aspect to this activity, is that you can have kids working on different sounds/goals, yet doing the same activity at the same time! Go check it out! Many buyers are purchasing the whole series!!!

Secondly, I have a new series of products that can be made into magnets and used with metal lids for an engaging game. These are very easy to make and I include complete, detailed instructions with photos. There is one set for holidays featuring 13 different templates. I have another set just for articulation with a focus on R, S, L, blends and multi-syllabic words. Here is the holiday set:

Book companions are one of my specialties and here is the very first book companion I made: Sheep in a Jeep! I created this to use with a young student who had Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). He needed a LOT of practice with bilabials, so this was a GREAT book to use! I wrote IEP goals to coordinate with each activity and linked all of those with the CCSS. This will save you a LOT of time! 

Now, I would like to recommend a couple of products made by other sellers.

1. Making Sense of Idioms, by Carissa Ten Hoeve of Home Sweet Speech Room. The idioms she includes in this packet are, for the most part, commonly used. There are several activities that encourage both comprehension and correct use of each idiom (both verbal and written). 

2. Common Core Daily Language Workout series by Jennifer Shamburger of Speech Universe. This is a great series...there are specific activities provided all linked to the CCSS. This can be used for pre-/port-test data as well as for instruction. It is excellent!  

Wishing you a wonderful school year!
