Five for Friday, Feb. 5

We are linking up this busy week with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching.
Groundhog Day, 100th Day of School and Super Bowl Sunday, oh my!
Monday and Tuesday started out with Groundhog Day activities
We had highs of 70-75 both days.
Is it any wonder Punxsutawney Phil predicted spring?
A cute open-ended groundhog day game from Mia McDaniel helped get some hard data.
Middle-school students read Groundhog Day text passages from Nicole Allison's winter pack.
I love using the dry-erase pockets from Target to practice highlighting vocabulary and concepts.
Y'all. I'm old.
I pre-date the Internet!
I remember struggling for therapy ideas, driving all the way back to the Special Ed office to look at workbooks and THEN prepping activities.
Yep, there was no Pinterest, no FB SLP groups, and NO Teachers pay Teachers.
I am loving our technology today.
I can look up ideas, buy a very reasonably priced product on TpT, and have it ready to go in 20 minutes.
OK, that was a squirrel. Just wanted to let you know. I am so grateful for TpT and online collaboration.
 100th Day of School for speech/language therapy by All Y'all Need
Did you celebrate the 100th Day of School this week?
We did!
It's kind of nice to be so far along in the school year. And kind of scary, too.
But it's a lot of fun.
Self-contained students played Peachie Speechie's teddy graham challenge (it's a freebie!) and made glasses.
Some groups played 100th Day Ask Away. It's like Guess Who?
It's always great to get in asking questions and perspective.
I was at the middle school on the 99th day of school.
We still did 100th Day activities, including the free app AgingBooth.
It was fun! Most laughed at their pictures.
Only one was pouty about the "after" picture.
Another middle-schooler told me my aged picture looked the same as my "before" picture because I'm already old. We had a quick social skills lesson. (Even though I am old. You just don't tell people they are old.)
And I used another TpT item, 100th Day of School for Upper Grades by Kim Miller.
We used the Draw Yourself at 100, Bucket List, and Money pages. 
And the self-contained middle-school teachers were happy to see me bring in 100th Day activities that were appropriate for their students.

Have I told you I have an awesome licensed assistant?
I do.
While I'm at Friday morning meetings, she'll be doing some make-up sessions.
Football is the theme.
An old Linguisystems Game to Go is the plan.
My students are overwhelmingly Broncos fans.
Who are you rooting for?
