Good Finds: Spring Speech Sale Edition

a review of wonderful speech materials I've recently purchased

Did you pick up any great materials during the recent Spring Speech sale on Teachers Pay Teachers? I couldn't wait to sort through the goodies on my wishlist and take advantage of the discounts. Here's what I picked up:

Who Are You? ($1.50 from Queen's Speech)

This resource will be perfect for targeting receptive and expressive language skills that my preschoolers are working so hard to improve. The packet includes cards that have 'clues'. Read the clues and see if your students can guess what you are describing.

There are also individual cards with just the pictures on them for students to use as their answers or to play a matching game. Other cards show the animal/insect and have questions prompting the student to think of some great ways to describe that animal + a describing mat for this task. Finally, BINGO cards are included to make the learning extra fun! I am definitely prepping this packet tomorrow so I can use it ASAP with my students!

Candy Land Phonology ($5.50 from Speech Room News)

I don't know about you, but my kiddos are constantly requesting we play Candy Land. I've been looking for more phonology resources and this is perfect!

The set has cards targeting final consonant deletion, fronting, multisyllabic words, cluster reduction, and stopping. I have students working on all of these phonological processes! Jenna also includes a set of cards targeting /p, b, m/ phonemes - perfect for those common preschool speech sounds!  This is definitely a resource that is a bang for your buck and a great activity to have in any preschool SLP's room.

Rescue the Princess Game (FREE! from Figuratively Speeching)

Perfect. Super awesome fun for my preschool/elementary students. This {FREEBIE} includes a game board and what doesn't belong cards. She also includes blank cards to make your own activity and lots of ideas for using this packet for different goal areas. There is a full (paid) version also available in her TpT store. My students are going to adore this one!

Super Mario Speech Therapy Games (FREE! from Peachie Speechie)

I cannot believe this packet is FREE! Peachie Speechie is pretty generous with this one. I don't know a kid who doesn't love Mario, and I suspect my students are going to go bonkers over these activities!

This generous packet includes an open-ended board game, question conversation starters, articulation cards targeting initial/medial/final /r, l, s/ (plus blank cards to create your own!), plus cards and pictures to target the use of adjectives, verbs, and making comparisons. So excited to use this resource!
