More Holiday Fun!

As life gets busier preparing for holidays, just remember that you have to take care of yourself too! When you reach a point that you say to yourself, "Oh, good! I still have time to .....," maybe it is time to cross something off your list and take some time to relax or do something nice for yourself! You deserve it!

2 Free Resources for Fun Holiday Help!

Do you get so busy preparing for the holidays that you just can't wait for vacation to arrive? I think our students may pick up on this, as well as feeling like they just can't wait to celebrate!

Click to download the free printable Holiday Matching Game.
Whatever the reason, sticking to the regular routines seems to get harder the closer the holiday gets. A little change in the 'work' level, while still teaching and reviewing skills, may be just what is needed this holiday season.

If you prefer to have printable materials that can be used in any location, you will want to download the updated version of my Open Ended Holiday Matching Game. Just click here to download the first set.

If you get my newsletter, you are in for a treat with double the amount of cards for additional ways to play! So be sure to open your email this week.

Have fun decorating for Christmas with this free interactive game for iPads.
For busy SLPs and parents, using the iPad may be the way to go! If so, you will want to check out the free Christmas Time interactive game for iPads and phones at my TpT store. Kids can play independently to decorate the house for Christmas or turn it into a more structured activity for teletherapy by reviewing work each turn.

Either way, I have you covered! Be sure to stop back weekly for more fun!

Beginning or Ending Sounds- A Free Phonological Awareness Activity Week 4

Listening for beginning or ending sounds in words is such an important pre-reading skill! Did you play word games on car trips growing up?

There's a reason for that. Playing around with sounds and words before entering school builds knowledge that you need in order to start learning the written language system of reading, spelling and writing.

Free printable game downloads at Looks Like Language!
This fun download can help you get started with your own kids! Download it here.

Then be sure to play some sound games, too!

* I'm thinking of a word that rhymes with cat. You need it for a sport.

* I spy something that starts with this sound: (Try to make just the first sound without adding "uh" "ah" "ee" or any other sound.)

* See how far through the alphabet you can get your child to give an answer.
   - Ann packed her suitcase with an apple.
   - Bobby packed his suitcase with a belt.

Where/when to play? Any time you are:

- sitting in a car
- taking a walk
- doing dishes
- washing clothes
- basically during any physical activity when your mind is free

I wanted to share my newest adventure with you- Boom Learning Cards! 

I only have a few decks so far, but I love the interactive learning fun that they provide. I had been trying to figure out for a long time  how to make some of my activities interactive for students without you having to print, laminate and cut. I think you will find this option exciting! You can play these decks on your tablets, computers or SmartBoards!


Check out my free deck at Boom Learning!

I have one free deck so far, and will try to make this freebie into a Boom card deck sometime this month, so check back soon.



In the meantime, here is the download for this week's freebie. 

Preview my free Boom Learning set by clicking the Boom icon.


What do I need to know about Boom Learning?
