Can you believe its May already? I just finished my last week in the schools, and now I will be moving to home health full time for the summer.
Here are some of my favorite items for the month of May…..
Connect 4 Launchers
I found this gem at Goodwill for $1.99! It has the same concept as the original Connect 4 game, just seems to be lot more engaging for my clients (and me). Plus, I love games that I can use with a wide range of ages.
I found these beverage koozies for $1 in the target dollar spot! These have been my go-to for targeting a variety of language goals. These koozies are also a great way to make flash cards more appealing. Check out the TPT product I made to pair with them! https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Flamingo-Language-Sort-3817109
Nail Strengthening Hand Cream
I purchased this hand cream from target and it did not disappoint! Working with kids has me constantly washing my hands, which makes them extremely dry. Keeping this stuff in my purse or work bag has really made a difference with my skin.
I ordered this pack of (8) farm animal bath squirters from amazon for $9.99. I love that each animal is a different color. I can target making requests, describing, expanding utterances, identifying animals/colors, etc. Besides, water play is such a FUN way to kick off summer festivities!
Reading Comprehension Books
I tutor a few hours each week helping a client with reading comprehension. I noticed these work books at Dollar Tree and decided to give them a shot. Little did I know how perfect they would be for therapy! It has great worksheets to target: context clues, making predictions, sequencing, answering questions, and more! #DOLLARTREEWIN
Communication is my Love Language Shirt
http://letstalkspeechblog.com/ and https://speechtothecore.com/a-day-in-life-of-nicole-allison/ designed this adorable shirt that I just had to have!
Tic Tac Toe Game
I scooped up this adorable pineapple and flamingo themed tic tac toe game from the target dollar spot (surprise, surprise). I chose to use this game to target emotions, but you can modify this game to target SO many other speech and language goals. Check out the tpt product I made to go with this game: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Pineapple-Emotions-3790693
