tpt 2015 linky

It’s that time of year again!   Time to start shifting our thoughts from the beach to the books…the surf board to the smart board…time to think Back to School!  And while I still have the entire month of August to look forward to, I realize that these precious days will float swiftly by!  I am enjoying every moment of sunshine but thoughts of school are definitely swirling around in my mind.  The TpT Back to School Sale is the perfect way to get your head back in the game.  Jenna is hosting the linky party at Speech Room News so be sure to click on the link and find out what other SLPs are recommending to help start your school year off!

 Here’s what I plan on using from my own TpT store when I return to work with my middle and high school  crew:

My  Back to School Problem Solving for Middle and High School Students  includes step by step strategies for solving problems, scenario cards, open ended speech/thought bubbles, some tips to help  teens start off the school year, and a recipe card with healthy lunch ideas!!

My Back to School Bundle {Student Planner and Executive Functioning game} is two products combined into one bundle!

First, this unique activity addresses good organization in older kids.  I created a home planner for students to help them keep organized when they leave the walls of the school and get them through their morning, afternoon and evening routines!

The second activity in the bundle includes 36 executive functioning strategy cards that will help students answer questions/listen to tips related to preparation, time management, organization and good listening strategies.  A great way to help get them centered and focused for the school year!

This item is apple-themed for the fall season and focuses on ways to develop a rich vocabulary through specific strategies.  I was inspired to create this item after revisiting a wonderful resource, the book ”Bringing Words to Life” by Isabelle L. Beck, Margaret G. McKeown, and Linda Kucan.  The book brings to light the importance of teaching vocabulary through strategies that reach far beyond the basic dictionary definition of a word.   I have utilized some of the basic concepts found in this book into this TpT product.    Check out the complete packet in my TpT store! 

 

I am also keeping a wish list of a few items created by fellow SLPs that I would love to add to my toolbox to keep things fresh as we begin a brand new school year:

Is there any better way to get your tweens and teens to connect and stay motivated than through music?!  I love this theme and know it will be so much more enjoyable to address figurative language skills when I present it to my students using Figurative Languae In Pop Music from SLPrunner.     Plus you will also receive FREE song updates to correspond with top 30s pop song charts!! Good deal!

Figuratively Speeching SLP has added Super Strategies for Word Retrieval Deficits (fall themed) to her store.  Her original Super Strategies product is super popular, so I’m sure this one won’t disappoint!  If you are looking for ways to address vocabulary building with your students, this product should be on your list.

And finally, social skills are a huge focus with my population of students and The Dabbling Speechie has something that will fit the bill!  Making Social Inferences uses real photographs and works on higher level inferencing tasks.    Social skills and inferencing —two important areas addressed in one product.

Don’t forget to check out all the great product suggestions at Jenna’s linky party.  The sale runs from August 3-4.  My store will be 20 % off plus there will be an additional savings when you enter the promo code BTS15.   Enjoy shopping and don’t forget to take some time to enjoy the season….after all,  it is still summer!!!
