Cheers! It's Friday! I hope you all had an awesome week. On Tuesday, my friend and I took our little munchkins to the pumpkin patch down the street for a lithe photo shoot. I just love these little cuties. They are two weeks apart in age and needless to say... best friends. His mother and I have already arranged their marriage :)
Therapy sessions were filled with festive fun, too! This week we read two books. That wasn't the original plan, but things rarely go as planned 100% of the time anyway!
We started out the week reading, The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano
I love this sweet story of Spookley. It opens a great opportunity to discuss how everyone is different and what makes us special. I also love using this story to work on shapes with my little guys.
Then, one of my students happened upon my Go Away, Big Green Monster!
app, and Spookley took the back seat! I planned on doing this story next week, but The BGM sure had the kiddos attention so I just went with it!
The kids had fun making masks and completing activities that went along with the story.
I found some great mask templates on Pinterest. The masks were made from fabulously fancy paper plates. You can find a color template here and a black and white template here.
Last year I created a Big Green Monster glyph! You can check it out and snag a copy here.
We also did a sorting activity that I found here! We sorted words into Color, Size, and Body Part categories.
I have quite a few kids with following directions goals so I used an activity from my Halloween Thematic Unit packet.
I was pretty proud of myself by the end of the week because I got two new products up in my store. So guess what that means? I am giving away a copy of each! One lucky winner will win a copy of both products to make their speech sessions sweeter!
