The Frenzied SLPs for March: #Lucky2BeAnSLP

Feelin' lucky? How about a lucky seven post to make your frenzied SLP life easier?

#1) Want to type in IPA? Or secret code to other SLPs? Check out KG Miss Speechy Font! Free for personal use!
#2) Change your Apple icons! This is my sister's clip art collection.
#3) And organize your TpT purchases with this great idea from Speech2u!
#4) TinkerLab is a fun website my licensed assistant introduced me to. It's not SLP-centered, but it has fun ideas to incorporate into therapy.
#5) Enchanted Learning has TONS of word banks. I am always using their vocabulary lists!

#6) I wrote about storing test materials in 2012, and I am still in love with expanding folders.
#7) Sometimes, you need a little humor in your frenzied SLP life. Check out What We Should Call SLP, some Erik X Raj posts, or hang a few Humorous Signs for SLPs around your room.
Whether it's organization, therapy ideas, or humor, I hope these ideas are useful so that you are less frenzied!













5 for Friday

Today we are linking up with the talented Kacey at Doodlebugs Teaching.

I love the Oscars.
I was really hoping Boyhood would win big.
Especially Austin's own Richard Linklater for director.
But it was not to be.
I was pretty shocked to see Lady Gaga singing "The Sound of Music"!
My BFF and I were texting the whole show.
We see a lot of the movies together that are nominated, so it is always fun
to talk movies during Oscars.
And years ago we saw Julie Andrews in person together!
She was speaking at a reading conference.
It was unforgettable.
Wednesday was a great day to shop on TpT!
Their Teacher Are Heroes Sale gave me a great excuse to go shopping.

Here are my purchases from the Hero Sale:

And how cute are these study buddies?
Also from Whimsy Clips

I am a sucker for pretty paper packs.

I was happy to add Miss DeCarbo's Forces & Motion science set to my cart.

And y'all know I am crazy about Melonheadz.
I have her original Library set.
This is Library 2015.  Whoo-hoo!
Happy purchase!

(check out Demco for your copy of this fantastic poster)
We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday early.
It was a great week reading lots of Dr. Seuss books every day.
And how exciting to learn we will get a new Dr. Seuss book in July?
It is titled "What Pet Should I Get?".
I am excited about its release.
We celebrated early because March 2nd is also Texas Independence Day.
And everything is pretty much bigger in Texas!   
We celebrate Texas all week.
Well, pretty much the entire month of March, if we are being honest.
And since all 3 of us are proud Native Texans, we have lots of fun 
sharing about our state with the sweeties.
And I am looking forward to Saturday.
Cause I get to eat dinner here.
Yum!
And after dinner with friends.
It is off to see "Once".
I have never seen this musical, so I am looking forward to it.

Hope y'all enjoy your weekend!

The Frenzied SLPs: Love in February!

The Frenzied SLPs is devoted to making your frenzied SLP life a little easier! Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite therapy room supplies and tips with you!
1 and 2. My absolute favorite tip for efficiency takes some time to set up. All of my Super Duper decks have been hole-punched and put on binder rings, then put into a shoe rack with labels. So easy to keep cards together, find during therapy, and clean up when I'm exhausted!
3. I have finally discovered my favorite pen - a Sharpie pen! It dries fast, has the perfect point, and… during long meetings, I can quietly move the cap up and down for sensory input.
4. Mighty Magnets from The Container Store. At $7.99 per dozen, these babies are a little pricey. But they will hold up just about anything! They are currently holding up my campus notes, emergency plans, and a few fun signs!
5. Mavalus tape. Believe the website. Every single claim. This tape is a miracle. It will not tear off paint, it holds items to cinder-block walls, and it is altogether marvelous! Well worth the trip to the teacher's store.



Five for Friday: Feb. 13

Thank you, Kacey for hosting 5 for Friday each week.

Happy Birthday to Amy!
It was yesterday.
She shares a birthday with Abraham Lincoln. Her students asked her if she knew Abe when she was a little girl.
I am seriously blessed to have her as a sister. She is really the heart of All Y'all Need. 
Do you help out with benchmarks? One of my schools got rewarded with limeades from Sonic!
Here's one of my APs carting them around.
My other school had a Death by Chocolate Day. I missed it. Would've killed my Weight Watchers daily points.
Did you go through the For the Love of Speech blog hop? All of the freebies were great, and students have been having a blast with them! You can get this fun game from The Speech Owl ($1.50).
And The Pedi Speechie used fun couple clip art for this freebie!


Are you following The Frenzied SLPs on FB? We are sharing the love this month! Check out Queen's Speech creative side and I always learn from Smart Speech Therapy.

This has been a blog following week for me. Here is one of my all-time favorite posts right now.
I keep going back to it.
It's from Rachelle over at For Blogness' Sake. Enjoy, and have a Happy Valentine's Day!
