September SLP Link-Up

It's a new month! Time to check in and see what all the SLP Bloggers have been up to! Click here to see everyone's entries, and find out how you can participate!

This month I am...


Schooling...myself in Spanish! I recently found out about the Duolingo app, and I am loving it! Duolingo is FREE for Apple or Android products, and has been a great way to brush up on all the Spanish skills I've lost since high school. Try it out!


Excited...for our patio garden! We have two tomato plants, a green chile pepper plant, and a pot of herbs with parsley, oregano, and basil. Our peppers are growing like mad, and we've already harvested a few for soup and we even canned our own salsa! Can't wait for our little tomatoes to ripen :)


Prepping...preschool themes! This year I am providing services for children ages birth - Kindergarten, but the large majority of my caseload is 3-4 years old. I am going to attempt having weekly therapy themes this year, and have been super busy planning! What are your favorite themes to use with preschoolers? (I'm mega excited for ROBOTS!)


Trying...to blog in advance. These last few weeks have been SUPER motivating for me to blog. I just have ideas flying out the wazoo! I think it's because I've been at work for three weeks now and just keep getting more and more inspired by my kiddos. But of course, time is really valuable now that school is back up and running. I just don't have the time to blog like I had this summer. I finally created a blogging calendar, and I have a tentative schedule of what posts I'd like to write between now and December. Hopefully this calendar will keep me on task and updating regularly. I can't wait!!

    1. I'm worried the blogging schedule is a little too ambitious :/ I'll definitely need to take advantage of little chunks of time here and there! Thanks for hosting!

  2. I just downloaded Duolingo because of your Facebook post about it! I'm hoping I'll be able to get back into some sort of a blogging schedule now that school's in session as well! I blogged in advance over the summer (I'd go on a writing spree then schedule the posts over the next 2-3 weeks). Now to find time to have a writing spree, lol!

    1. That's what I'm struggling with too - finding the time!

  3. I'm so jealous that your caseload is preschool. I absolutely love that age! Also, your garden inspires me! :)

    1. Preschoolers are the BEST! Our patio garden this year is way more successful than last year's. Our apartment faces east, so the plants get great sun for a lot of the day. My husband has actually been watering and taking care of the plants much more than I have! He's our Plant Daddy :)
