I’m sitting here sipping a latte at a local coffee shop in the middle of the morning in the middle of the week. In a couple of days, I won’t be able to do that. It’ll be a whirlwind of meetings, reviewing folders, reading new evals, arranging schedules, and of course re-arranging schedules. Nothing can really prepare you for it, but there are a few things that might make it easier.
I am SO proud of the SLP community that consistently provides quality products to make our school years and work days easier. I hope to add one more thing that might help you settle into your year with a little less stress and a little more info about your students.
At the beginning of the year, I always take baselines on my kids. This new product will make taking baseline data for my articulation students so. much. easier.
This tool is simple and straightforward and provides lots of data at the same time. Each page includes half-sheets of a data form as well as a student probe page. There are probes for word, sentence, reading, and conversational levels at each sound.
At each level, the sounds are further broken down by initial, medial, and final positions.
Everything is in black and white, so it’s easy to print and go. Just cut the pages in half and give one to the student and keep the other to take data. The students can color or mark the pictures they are working on, making it a little more motivating for them.
If you like keeping your materials in binders like me, I’ve also included a binder cover and spines in the download. That way, you can just print out everything and make copies as needed.
You can even use the Data Summary Form to track student progress throughout the year. Even though this product is school-themed, it can really be used year round to track progress or take baselines on new students.
Hope this helps you a little! Grab this product from my TPT store HERE! The site wide sale is still going on for the rest of the day as well. Be sure to grab it while it’s on sale!
What do you use to collect baseline data?
