Back to School SLP Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Back to School SLP Blog Hop!
I'm thrilled to be participating with 16 other SLPs to bring everyone great ideas for BTS - plus you get the chance to collect {freebies} and win prizes! Use the Linkytools at the bottom of this post to hop around the blogs, collect ideas and to get the code for the prizes!

I'm not back in school yet. But when August started, that cued me to start thinking about this coming year. I realized how much of a seasonal person I really am. I tried to knock down school thoughts, but they just kept coming! As I was thinking about how I wanted to start out the year with my students, I kept coming back to the idea of traditions.

When starting school, what's more traditional than a First Day of School photo? I still take one even though my kids are in high school. From last year:
Why wasn't I doing a first day photo with my students? I had never really thought about it before because I usually don't see my students till the second week of school. But now, it seems like the perfect way to get a good start. So I made a sign.
And what good is just a picture? So I'm offering the Back to School Memory Book {Freebie} in B&W and color. There is space to write in goals for the year, I Can statements, I Will Learn statements, etc. Be sure to grab it before Aug. 17 because it is a limited-time freebie!

Here are some ideas for using first-day pictures:
* Let students color in the B&W copy while talking about the upcoming year.
* Take photographs and have them developed. Because I have an iPad, that is fairly easy now. My husband is always encouraging me to use more technology.
* Email the pictures to parents. This will help start communication for the year and let parents know that their children have started receiving direct services.
* Use the pages as a bulletin board. As students master objectives/goals, celebrate by starring those and then add new ones!
* This freebie can be a stand alone or part of My Speech Therapy Memory Book for keeping memories and celebrations all year!
