I am a school based speech therapist serving students in 2nd-5th grades. This is a blog to document and share materials and ideas for speech therapy using technology. My hopes are that having the blog will motivate me to be creative and make new materials using a variety of resources as well as motivate and inspire others.
So my last post talked a little about my new love, Teachers Pay Teachers. I have downloaded an insane amount of new materials this week! Some that I cut up and used within the hour! Too bad my school is out of laminator film and can't afford more till next month. :(
Anyway, I thought I would share a few of my favorites that I have found so far. Some of them I heard of from other bloggers, others I found on my own. I'm sure there are lots of other great ones that I haven't found yet so if you know of more, leave them in the comments below.
I created this activity called Let's Talk Turkey to work on describing with attributes and comparing/contrasting. I have posted the whole download(17 full color pages) on my Teachers Pay Teachers page. If you aren't familiar with TPT yet, you are missing out! There are a ton of really great products created by teachers, speech therapists and special educators just like us! There are lots of free downloads as well as affordable items to purchase. Plus you can download and use them immediately!

I had to share this awesome blog post from Amanda Hartmann at Spectronics. She features one of my favorite apps, Toca Hair Salon along with the an app I was not familiar with, Story Pals. I guess I will be making an app request for Story Pals soon! I love her idea of using the two apps together and I had tons of ideas of how to make these two apps work well with my students. Take a look and see what inspires you!
