BOO! Raise your hand if you're excited Halloween is on a Friday this year. All our students can work off their sugar rushes over the weekend :)
Hope you get lots of treats and few tricks tonight!
Abby is partial to Twix and Skittles. She will also take any Almond Joys that are not wanted.

introducing a new wizard-themed game for phonological awareness
Wizards have taken over my speech room!
Phonological Awareness Wizards is a magical new item up in my shop, and my students have been having so much fun with it all week. It includes a game board and everything you need to target phonological awareness skills - we're talking rhyming, syllables, and phonemes. In fact, with this one game board and the 594(!) accompanying playing cards, you are able to target 10 different phonological awareness skills:
Deck covers are also included for each set of cards if you wish to use them. The game board comes in two different sizes, and there are also game pawns and a die to coordinate. I cut out the pawns and used binder clips to stand them up - voila!
That's not all - kablam! There are also take-home pages, a progress monitoring rubric, and dot reinforcement pages!
So go ahead, wave your magic wand, and hop on over to pick up this game for your own use. The little wizards you work with will thank you ;) I waved my magic wand and this packet is 40% off until Friday, October 31. Enjoy!

introducing a grab-and-go tool for the busy SLP
This year I work with 3rd through 8th graders. My classroom is on one end of the school, and my students are on the very opposite end of the school. Let me tell you, I am logging lots of miles throughout my day just by picking up and dropping off students. In fact, I put the Map My Run app on my phone and was very surprised by how far I walked just in one day!
It can take five minutes for us to walk to and from my therapy room. We all know SLP schedules are tight, and I did not like wasting those precious minutes. So I needed some way to utilize that time in the hallway.
Viola! Grab-and-go therapy materials! This first version targets WH-Questions (who, what, when, where, why, how) and changing statements into questions.
The booklet is sized to be handheld (5 1/2" x 4") and fit easily into your therapy bag or purse.
Perfect for the busy SLP on the go! See it here on Teachers Pay Teachers. Additional booklets in this series are in the works, so stay tuned!
Abby averages 14 miles walking per week just walking around school with students.
