So it's Friday, we made it. Most of you are wrapping up your first week of school! How was it? I have to be honest, I missed the excitement and crazyness that comes with the first week of school. But most of my students started back at school this week too, so I embraced the Back to School theme in therapy this week!

This week we read the story, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books!
by Lucille Colandro. I just love these Old Lady books (and so do the kids!) There are so many fun activities to go along with this book. Most of the activities I used came from Jenn Alcorn's activity companion. You can check it out here.
The kids had a blast feeding the old lady school supplies this week and creating a story sequencing book. In addition, I used part of The Dabbling Speechie's Pronoun Fun activity with the vocabulary card's from Jenn's companion! I love when I can combine activities!!
My articulation kiddos had fun throwing bean bags at target words this week, too. To play, they would use the sentence, "I want to hit the _____" as they threw a bean bag at a target. Then they would use the sentence, "I hit the ____" after they threw them. Who doesn't love bean bags? This was also a good activity to get them out of their chairs and moving a bit.
I hope you all had a great first week back to school. I can't wait to hear all about it!
