The first half of November is over already!!! That means progress notes are finished, conferences are in full swing and I need to get on top of my winter speech and language activities!

I am also linking up with Old School Speech for her weekly review!  Check it out!

Keeping Kids Motivated 
{while practicing Main Idea!}
{I chose to make an "S" because it was what the first letter of the students name.  I used this to keep the student on track while reading short paragraph stories and asking the student what the story was mostly about.  This particular student has significant difficulty with attention--so he could see that as soon as we finish all the bubbles he will have earned choice time.  The "x" with the dot are the ones he got incorrect. It doubles as a data collection tool!}

  1. How did you use the Main Idea activity?
    I downloaded the Following Directions Activity; I plan on using it before Thanksgiving! (THANKS!)
    Your daughter is just too cute! LOVE that last picture!

    1. Thank you! I just added a little description above for the main idea activity.

  2. Your family is just too cute! Love the pictures! Thank you for the shout out! :)

  3. Wonderful post! I love the Plump and Perky Turkey (so many books, so little time). I only have 61/2 years to go (theoretically) so now I'm rationalizing all my new book acquisitions will be for my future grandchildren :)
    Your family is so beautiful, My daughter and I love watching the antics of Baby Addy Bug. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you so much Annie! I have also applied many of my daughter's books to speech and language therapy. :) Have a great Thanksgiving too!
