The Kissing Hand "Wild about Books Wednesday"

First things first...If you haven’t entered the rafflecopter... go do it! It’s FREE and today is the last day to enter! Just scroll down to the bottom of this post. I’ll announce the lucky winner on Friday!!

Today I am linking up with Scarlett over at Speech is Sweet for “Wild about Books Wednesday!” 

I’m sure I’m not the only one here who LOVES books! Right down the street from my house we have a fantastic, huge used book store!!! I ran down there this weekend and racked up!!! 20 books for 19 dollars!!!

I found “The Kissing Hand” by Audrey Penn for 90 cents!!! Perfect back to school book!!! Of course, once I brought my new finds home, I had to start planning my themes and books for the school year. See, I already have August planned!!! (I made my own planner this year. Scroll down to previous posts to read more about it or click the image to see it in my TPT store.)

August is going to be “The Kissing Hand”!!! The perfect book for heading back to school! To keep me organized and keep my kiddos engaged, I made “The Kissing Hand: Book Companion”. I have included a full color and a less color version (almost black and white) so you can decide which one you want to use. (Click on the Cover Page below to see it in my TPT store.)

I don’t know about you, but a lot of my kiddos work on similar skills. oh...there are a lot of skills we work on. I decided to base the book companion on some of the most common goals I see. Do you have different skills you like to address?

When it comes to a book, I want to find a way to use the same book regardless of grade and ability levels. Change/adapt the activities but keep the book the same!; Makes my like sooooooo much easier!!!

Let’s face it, we all have kids who struggle with vocabulary. So here’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 vocabulary! 

We all have kids who struggle with comprehension. So here are “wh” questions with fun QR codes and yes/no questions. 

Some of my kids understand same and different and need something more difficult while others are working on simple same and different. 

My older kids don’t care about positional concepts, but they need to work on describing and/or comparing and contrasting. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing my thought process on this book companion and seeing how I plan to address these skills!

See you in the Store!

Get those planners ready!

Who’s getting ready to return to school? I am!!! 

Today, I’m linking up with busy bee speech to talk about planners . (I know I’m a little late to this one.)

This week I went ahead and printed out my planner, had it bound, and started filling it up! My new obsession is decorating it with washi tape! I even started making my August lesson plans! I’ll show you more about that in a minute. Every year, I search for a planner that isn’t going to cost me an arm and a leg. I love planners but hate the price of them!!! So...I decided I would just make my own. I figured if I made my own planner it would include all of the sections I wanted. I can include all of my IEP information, I can list all of my meetings, I can list important dates and I can list my lesson plans. I even made two designs, since I couldn’t decided which one I liked better! Click the picture below to head over to my store!

See you in the store!

I'm Home and I have a new product!!!

I’m HOME!!! The trip to New Orleans was fabulous and was wrapped up by a trip down to an amazing record store on Frenchmen Street and 4th of July fireworks on the riverfront! I loved the last two weeks but I am so glad to be home!!! Now back to routine. 

Speaking of routine... I am again teaming up with the folks over at The Teaching Tribune for “Two for Tuesday”, meaning 2 of my products will be up in my store for 1/2 price for the next 24 hours
Head over to my store and check out “Preppy Pronouns: fun with pronouns and prepositions” and “Are we there yet?”. Click on the image to link to my store. 

“Preppy Pronouns: fun with pronouns and prepositions” is a fun hands-on way to teach your students to use and understand pronouns and prepositions!! You’ll receive visual signs, characters, direction tasks, pictures for direction tasks, and sentence strips. Enjoy!

“Are we there yet?” was inspired by my recent travels! This product is a fun way to incorporate a transportation theme into your sessions! It includes a simple transportation book for your students to construct and read, category sorting, simple yes/no questions, following directions with pronouns, what doesn’t belong, describing, and compare/contrast. You’ll be able to use this product across multiple ages and ability levels. 

Keep an eye out...there may be a big sale coming as we get closer to August!

See you in the store!
