All Y'all Need has a new product, Ask Away Activities for Work and Play! The 5 units include Community Characters, Happy Home, Tummy Treats, Sports Fans, and Vroom, Zoom, Zoom. Each unit comes with vocabulary words as well as instructions for playing several ways. The picture templates can be trimmed to fit into Guess Who templates, but directions for playing in groups of 3+ students are also offered. The set is $4. Thanks for taking a look!
Special Ed. had a Christmas lunch today. It was really nice to "go to work" and see everyone. We had time to visit and then a short staff meeting. I think I'm going to use the excuse of "chemo brain" a lot! When we talked about needs, I completely forgot the name of the program we are using - it's SuccessEd - but I DID remember how difficult it is! Apparently, improvements have been made, and it's working better now.

One of the agenda items was the STAAR, Texas's standardized test. Our third-graders through high schoolers take it. Most of my speech-only students take the STAAR, but there is a version called the STAAR-Modified, or STAAR-M. Part of the requirements are that a student has a disability significantly affecting academic progress. Sounds like some of my struggling language students to me.

Our director passed out examples of items on both tests. Can you tell which is a STAAR item and which is STAAR-M?

1A. Adam is 4.75 feet tall. He is 0.5 foot taller than Mark. How tall is Mark?
1B. Adam is 4.5 feet tall. He is 0.75 foot taller than his brother Mark. How tall is Mark?

2A. Why did Abdul-Jabbar wait until the Falcons lost a very close game before giving the team coaching advice?
2B. Why did Abdul-Jabbar wait until the Falcons lost a very close game before asserting himself as a coach?

3A. By saying that one of her sons "can walk too well in paragraph 5, the author implies that ____.
3B. In paragraph 5, the author writes that one of her sons "can walk too well". The reader can infer that _____.

Here are the answers:
1B is the STAAR item. It includes the irrelevant information that Mark is the brother and has math with regrouping.

2B is the STAAR item. "Asserting himself" is harder vocabulary.

3A is the STAAR item. It uses a more complicated sentence structure and the author's viewpoint rather than the reader's.

The point here is that there is not much difference between the two assessments. Vocabulary, main ideas and sentence structure are very important in preparing our students. These examples hit that idea home more than an eligibility comparison chart.

How does your state assess students? Are these questions similar?

All Y'all Need is proud to present our latest product, Holiday Happenings: A Game of WH- Questions. For $3.50, there are 21 pages of WH- cards and variations of ways to play. The game can be a stand-alone activity, but I always like to use books in therapy.

One of my favorite holiday books is The Amazing Christmas Extravaganza by David Shannon (yes, the author of the David books and more). The book provides a TON of vocabulary activities, plus it's a pretty good book.

When my son was younger, this book made him sad because of the way the neighbors react. There are a lot of feelings in this book, making it a good choice for social skills, too.

Anyway, back to the game. Most of my groups are twice a week, so I would do the book the first session and use the game the second session. Perfect plan for the last week before break!

As a follow-up to Fall Funnies, our newest product is Winter Witticisms. This set of jokes includes both Christmas and winter jokes and is designed to help students who have difficulty understanding humor. Students can either brainstorm to come up with punchlines or decide on the punchline through process of elimination. The set is $1.75.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love that it's not that commercialized and focuses on family and being grateful. I also LOVE the fall colors, which is weird because we don't really have fall in Central Texas. It's more like a lot of summer with a couple of winter days thrown in around January/February. Maybe it's the idea of fall that I like!

In the past, I've done the daily gratitudes on FaceBook and the thanks at the family table. Since this is my first Thanksgiving blogging, I thought I would do gratitudes for speech therapy. Sometimes I focus on what I don't have, like iPads for all the SLPs without any way to buy apps. Or a less-than-ideal system for doing ARDs and FIEs. Or going through hoops just to get things like ink cartridges and office supplies. You get the idea.

So here are the things I'm thankful for:

* being in a helping profession
* my AWESOME, WONDERFUL speech team. There are 5 SLPs covering my elementary through the end of the semester, and the rest are also stepping up to help with paperwork, testing, etc. They have all rearranged schedules and been very willing to do what needs to be done.
* supportive administrators. When I first found out the diagnosis of breast cancer just before school started, both my director and principal immediately told me to do what I needed and go to any appointments and not worry about school.
* my school district. Everyone has been so wonderful and supportive. Special Ed provided support and meals, as did my husband's middle school, but everywhere I go, there is someone from the district encouraging me.
* Blogs, Pinterest and Teachers pay Teachers. What wonderful new resources!
* my students. I feel most at home doing therapy at the round table.
* my room, newly painted thanks to my principal and newly decorated thanks to family and friends!
* my CFY. She takes initiative, and I only have to tell her things one time.

I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting that I will have to go back and add. But I already feel better focusing on the good things! What are you thankful for?
All Y'all Need's most recent product is Multiple Meaning Words.

Cards include options for teaching multiple meaning words along with extension questions. The set is $2.

If it seems like all my posts lately are for our store, I guess that's true. While I'm on leave, creating materials on the computer is a doable activity for me. Plus, I tend to blog in phases (see all the baking posts over the summer), and this is my phase now. Happy shopping!

The Pin: Porcupine meatballs from Taste of Home. Reviews are 4.5 of 5 stars. I made it because I had all the ingredients on hand! I had never heard of Porcupine Meatballs until 2008 when Becky Higgins posted a recipe.
                      Source: via Laura on Pinterest

The Good: Easy to make, I liked them. My teens questioned the use of porcupine meat... fun!

The Bad: My family prefers Italian meatballs with sauce and spaghetti.

Summary: Good and worth trying, but I probably won't make it again for my family.

I love working with my sister and cousin! I think of an idea for flashcards, Lisa gives me perspective on what works with her Kg-ers, and Amy does her magic and ties in the oral language with reading! This time, it's the all-important spatial concepts that so many of my language-disordered students struggle with. Here's the latest product from All Y'all Need:

                                            Source: via Laura on Pinterest
The pack comes with 20+ pages. There are 3 activities. The first is Seeing Spatial Superhero Terms and targets receptive language. Place the cards out in groups of 2 up to a whole pocket chart and ask students to find the card you describe.

The second activity Where is the Superhero?, is a matching game focusing on vocabulary. Students match illustrations to written words. The graphics are the same as in activity #1 but without the written words, so students are matching pictures and words.

The third activity is Superhero Signals. Students follow direction cards to learn spatial concepts. Nothing like getting up and moving around to make vocabulary terms stick!

My favorite activity that Amy cam up with is to laminate the cards, hole punch, and store on a book binder ring. Then, a teacher can grab the cards during bathroom breaks to review during wait time.

Take a look at the preview file here. Price is $3.50 on TpT.

What's going on is mostly life. I haven't been very regular about posting or keeping up with Pinterest or  commenting on blogs. I feel like there has been explosion of resources in the SLP world that I'm missing out on through Pinterest and TpT. It will still all be there when I'm ready for it, though.

In the meantime, All Y'all Need has joined a couple of giveaways. The first one is at O"Fish"ally a First Grader.
The second giveaway is going on at Tales From Room 112. Check out the blogs and giveaways!

At our store, here are some recently added items:
Starting with A: an alphabet game focusing on lower case letters for $3
Speech Therapist Progress Report Covers for 9 Weeks for $2.50
School Counselor Subway Art in Primary, Bright and B&W for $1 each
ABC Order for Veterans Day - a freebie!
We have several Veterans Day packs for math ($5), ELA ($5) and SLPs ($6). These units would be perfect for the time after Halloween and before Thanksgiving.

Plus, we added license prices. That means you can buy one item at regular price and the same item for 50% off to share with a co-worker! No more problems about sharing - just buy the number of items you want to and get a discount! Yep, that's the work of my librarian sister - if you ever want to know about copyright and licenses, librarians are the people to go to!

Welcome to my redesigned blog! Nicole at Delightfully Creative recently redesigned the logo for our TpT store, All Y'all Need, and I liked it so much that I asked her to take a look at my blog. Here's what she came up with:

I am very happy with it! Nicole's prices are very reasonable, starting at $30 and going to $45. She took my input and what I wanted, and she is very fast! I can't think of one thing I would change about working with her - she is very customer-oriented. If you're thinking about starting or redesigning a blog, make sure to check her work out!

Work with a great counselor? All Y'all Need has added subway art just for those who take care of the students - and often, the staff! Art comes in B&W and primary and bright colors. $1 each.
Today was my last day for the semester. I'm taking some time off for medical issues. Everyone I work with has been so supportive. The CFY I work with is already at the school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is working on Friday mornings. Four other co-workers are covering the rest of the days. I tear up at their generosity. They have all had to rearrange schedules, and they are willing to come in and work at a school and with students they're not familiar with.

The teachers at my school have been equally as wonderful. They have been willing to adjust schedule times as well as offering words of encouragement. And the diag I work with has been very helpful in answering questions and making sure everything is taken care of. I am so fortunate to work with a diag who believes all the kids are our kids and helps me out tremendously.

The last time I was out for any length of time was when my daughter was born, and she's 14 years old now! Times have changed along with workload requirements, but I didn't realize how much it would take to prepare! I have filled a notebook to the point that the cover is going up:

The sections are:Student Lists, ARDs (IEPs) and Re-evals, Schedule, Map, Sections for M/W, T/Th and Friday groups, RtI lists, Testing and Referral lists, and Upcoming ARDs. I have gone through it, but I know I haven't covered everything. I know the therapists can handle everything, but I want to give them a good foundation.

I also left them with a few fun things. First up, little buckets from Target that are great for games where students draw small cards:
Second, I added labels to my shoe holder of Super Duper decks. I've worked with the cards so long that  I know them by sight:
 Hard to see here, but the artic labels are b/p, ch/j, d and f/v.

 Language decks are Auditory Memory, Irregular Plurals, Irregular Verbs, and Synonyms.
My hope is that the therapists have everything they need and easy access to what they need.
Check out our new logo from Nicole at Delightfully Creative Blog Design! She wrote some kind words here. Nicole is just starting out, and I'm sure she would appreciate some visits!

Check out our new Veterans Day units! My sister Amy, a librarian, has found a great book for Veterans Day, The Poppy Lady. This is the packet for SLPs, and it's $6 for 30+ pages:

So after I found the joys of commenting without interpreting the always fuzzy word verification, things changed. I've gotten some very strange comments in the past week. I have deleted the ones I know about. For now, I am going to go with moderated comments only in hopes of these strange commenters? people? spammers? going away. I would still love to see your legitimate comments, and I apologize for making you jump through hoops, but this is what I have to do for now.

Have you encountered this? What did you do? Google's only solution seems to be to go to moderated comments only and don't click on links. I wish there was some way to block these people, but apparently they change websites and addresses so quickly that it's hard to keep up with them.
This past week was a whirlwind, and although I've been out of school for less than a week, it seems like forever. Because I've been gone, I don't have any lesson plans to share this week. Instead, I'm showing you how I used my subway art.

By the way, I don't know why it's called subway art. I guess it's really word art. Eighteen25 calls it subway art, and so I shamelessly copied their term because I love eighteen25. If you know the definition of the term, please enlighten me. I live in Central Texas, not exactly the bastion of subways, but I have received a few comments along the lines of: "Why is it called subway art? I've never seen that on subways!" 

I printed the warm colors on cardstock and placed in a spray-painted IKEA frame. Then, I put it on an empty space on my desk. I like it here because it's a happy thing to look at when I'm making phone calls. Here's a blurry picture of the desk. I will never master iPhone and iPad cameras.

There are also primary and black-and-white versions just for SLPs at All Y'all Need

I was so surprised and flattered one day to find that Nicole Allison from Speech Peeps used her print-outs on a bulletin board. Take a look at her gorgeous room!

Have you used the subway art? How? Share pictures or comments!

Well, it's the middle of Week 2, and I am still using those plans. Most students have been excited about the new sticker charts. How I Spent My Summer Vacation has been a hit. I have learned to be careful about asking about summer vacation. Most students did the typical summer things, but a 4th-grade boy told my CFY, "I reached puberty". She moved on to the next activity quickly! The other thing I have learned is that hardly anyone knows what the prairie dog is. There's a picture on the last page. I guess there aren't too many of the critters here in Central Texas.

For Week 3, my librarian sister suggested The Secret Shortcut by Mark Teague as a good follow-up to How I Spent My Summer Vacation. The book is about two boys who just can't seem to get to school on time, and the imagination is similar in both books. I've made a unit, and you can find it at All Y'all Need on TpT by clicking here. It's $3 for activities targeting semantics and syntax and morphology along with an open-ended game.

Several of my 3rd-5th students only come once a week, and I always struggle with what to do with those groups. It's hard to do book units because some students miss out on some parts. How do you handle this?

For PK and Functional Academics, I'll probably use the same book but try to find a LINCS activity instead of the game or sentences. I really like how easy the supplies are to gather, plus the LINCS books contain a page that can be copied and sent home to parents. I usually try to include some artic or vocabulary words.

How's your school year going? What have you used that's been a success?

My district just finished up the first week with students, and I hope I have found all the new enrollees! Most of my new speech/language students have come from other schools in the district, which makes things easier.

I have to add something to the first week plans - filling out paperwork for schools. I don't know why we can't do that during in-service days before school. District paperwork I had to complete included United Way, Employee Handbook, and emergency contacts for school and Sp. Ed. I know I'm whining and it doesn't seem like that much, but both my Sp. Ed. department and school like to have a copy of everything, so it's twice the time. And throw this on top of what I have to do as an SLP, and yeah, I'm pretty pitiful. It really isn't that much, just kind of a pain.

Moving on...

Here are my plans for Week 2, the first week groups will come. My groups usually come on M-W or T-Th. I am supervising a CFY, and she is coming on T/Th. On Friday, I see walk-ups and do make-up sessions.

Labor Day

Morning duty
See first groups
Explain rules
Decorate behavior charts
Talk about last year/this year - goals and objectives
Read How I Spent My Summer Vacation if time

Same plan but without CFY


See walk-ups - same plans as above but adapted to 4-year-olds

What are your plans? What do you do with your students the first week of therapy?

This was the second year I used the "post-it" method of scheduling. There are several variations, but a sharp-eyed licensed assistant shared a post from Speaking of Speech with me, and I thought it was a great idea.

Other places to look:

I drew a very imperfect grid on my chalkboard, filled in spaces for lunch and walk-ups, and left the other spaces blank. I sent out a letter to each teacher who has a speech/language student and explained the process. The e-mail went out on Tuesday, the second day of school, for Thursday scheduling. I have to turn in a schedule by Friday and start seeing students next week, so I let teachers know that, and most are very understanding even though they are still working out their own schedules. 

When the teachers walk in, the speech groups are listed on post-its. Scheduling is painful, but I try to ease that with breakfast treats. This year, my wonderful mom made blueberry and apple-cinnamon muffins.
Here's a close-up of the time sections:
I arrived at school at 6:45. That's 6:45 a.m. Duty starts at 7:10, and I wanted everyone to have a fair chance at picking times. The first post-it is from 5th grade. They really put a lot of thought into their time because one of the students has a lot of services. The second post-it is from a kindergarten teacher who was already at school and followed me into my room to claim her time.

This is what the schedule looked like after lunch:
It's mostly filled in, but I have four more teachers to schedule with. Right now, I'm pretty happy because the schedule gives me time to work with my CFY and room to grow. That is not always the case.

I do have to point out that I have the support of my principal and assistant principal in doing the schedule this way. They saw how easy it went last year.

The benefit is that the teachers get to see the overall schedule, not just their students. Also, they get to pick the times which helps out with communication. Everyone was very accommodating, and there were very few instances where the first-choice time was taken.

And on an unrelated note, I have to share this product with you. It's called mavalus tape, and my sister and cousin introduced me to it. The tape is strong but doesn't pull paint off the walls. It's worth a try!

I'm starting my 20th year as an SLP, but I didn't always know I wanted to be an SLP. Way back in the day, my mom took me to the Texas Tech clinic because she was the only one who could understand me. My parents remember exercises to make my lips and tongue stronger. I can only guess that I probably had final consonant deletion or blend reduction or both.

When I moved up to 4th grade and Intermediate School, I still wasn't saying my /r/ sounds. I remember going to speech therapy during social studies with another boy. There were picture card decks, and we often earned points to throw beanbags through a big board with a picture of a clown juggling empty holes. At one point, the boy learned how to say /r/, and the speech therapist asked me why I wasn't saying it like he did. I thought I was.

At some point, I actually heard the difference and asked my parents to discriminate my productions of /r/ words. I was dismissed at the beginning of 5th grade.

In college, I majored in journalism and became a copy editor. I met my husband, Jim, a sportswriter. We decided that working from 3 p.m. till midnight would not be conducive for a family. Jim had gotten a teaching certificate at his parents' insistence and got hired as the journalism teacher at the high school. I decided to go back to college. Truth be told, I was a little jealous of the summers off my mom and sister had, but I didn't want to be a teacher. Communication disorders seemed to be the way to go.

Now, I can't imagine doing anything else. What's your story? Why did you become an SLP?

Mark Teague is one of my favorite authors, and I love "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" for starting out my groups. Tomorrow will be the first day with students, the first week will be full of finding where students are and enrolling new ones, and therapy groups will start the next Monday.

My first group sessions are usually pretty informal. First thing is to review the rules. Students can decorate their incentive charts while we talk about what they did last year and goals for this year. Then, we will start sharing summer vacation experiences. I'll bring out this book and activities during the second session of the week.

Because we won't spend a lot of time on this book, this plan is actually more of a mini-unit than the full package deal, so All Y'all Need is offering it as a freebie! Click here to get the download. I realize many of you have already started school, but I'm operating on Texas time. If you like it, go ahead and download now and enjoy being very far ahead for the next school year!

I promise the graphics are not blurry like the picture above. Can anyone tell me why my pins are showing up like this? I've updated Adobe.
My family on the first school day of 2011. They are so thrilled I still make them take a picture!

In Texas, most first days of school are Aug. 27 this year. That's because our Legislature determined that earlier starts interrupted tourism and summer work jobs. I have been reading blogs where teachers are back in the full swing of things, so I feel like I'm a little behind, but I'm really not. At least not yet!

I discovered several years ago that schools - and I - operate on cycles. Eventually, it hit me that we have to start thinking about the next school year early in the second semester, that it happened every year, and that I forgot every year. Although I won't have a schedule next week, I still need to write down some of the things that happen every year.

My list for next week is rather generic, but I hope it will help me plan ahead. One note - Texas has ARDs - Admission, Review and Dismissal - which is our term for IEP meetings.

Aug. 27-31
Finish making student lists for each grade to find out teachers and who has moved
Call parents/previous schools to verify services for new students
Expect parent phone calls requesting speech/language testing
Check on current/ new students as needed
Set up transfer ARDs
Expect 1-2 unintelligible kindergarteners
Attend transfer ARDs for students who are not speech-only
Work with CFY

Everyone is on duty before and after school

Early morning duty
Medical appointments

E-mail teachers about scheduling
Bake muffins to give to teachers on Thursday morning

Arrive early - before 7 a.m.! - to schedule

Plan everything for next week
Medical appointment

You may have noticed medical appointments on my calendar. I invite you to visit this page if you would like further information. I am usually a private person, and it is difficult for me to share on a blog, but I have felt the power of prayer like never before, so there you go... My posts in the future will probably decrease and be more sporadic, but I do intend to keep going!

What is on your first-week list? Or, if you've already started school, what happened that you didn't expect?

Finally, I am ready to post the "after" pictures of the speech room! Click here to go to the middle. Here's the view upon entering. And please excuse the blurry pictures...

Last year, the desk was to the immediate left upon entering, and the file cabinets and big metal storage cabinet were all next to each other. It was important to me that the table where the students work is the first thing, so I moved it closer to the door. To the immediate left now is a big metal storage cabinet, so I broke up all the putty-colored metal stuff.

A look around the room, moving left to right. I covered the storage cabinet with fabric from Hobby Lobby, laminated border and personal Disney pictures..

A view of the corner. The Super Duper decks are on book binder rings in visible pockets. The plastic drawers are lined.

I found the buckets at the Dollar Spot at Target and proceeded to use the "sticker sneeze" method of covering them with year.o.graphy stickers.

Here is a view of the red wall. Students' sticker charts will fill up the space in the brown border.

The chalkboard wall with vocabulary and dry-erase speech bubbles:

My desk. The top part is a screen divider from The Container Store. All those bright pink notes are new students I have to verify services for. Yikes!
The old bookshelf that was in my kids' nursery. It's been painted 3 times. My daughter thought it was boring, so she added leopard-print duct tape.
I hot-glued ribbon on the edges, but that wasn't enough for her.
 The whole thing:
Back to right behind the door - the Wall of Fame that students get to sign when they are dismissed.
Thanks for looking!
