The end of the school year is near, and I all I can think about is making sure my students practice their speech goals over the summer. They made tremendous progress over this year and the summer vacation is known to regress a child’s progress.
Most of my students seem excited to continue reading during the summer and that’s music to my ears. That’s weight lifted off my shoulders.
I still have to prepare packets for them to take home so their parents can monitor their child’s progress over the summer.
Fortunately, Speech Therapy Ideas, an online resource for speech therapists posted take-home activity packets on their blog site. This site has helped me tremendously throughout the year and has amazing ideas to enforce during speech therapy sessions.
It’s difficult to be a fun educator, but I have taken the responsibility to be just that. I’ve always wanted my students to enjoy attending speech therapy and for just $5 a month, I had unlimited access to all sorts of games, practice sheets and packets. They also have a couple of free materials to use.
Check out the website if you are a parent of a child with a speech disorder or a speech therapist. I’m sure you will be thankful for their service.
Don't let your child be apart of the achievement gap. Continue to work read and discuss books, newspapers, magazines, music, art, etc.
