Today is Monday and I’m not at work! I’m sitting on my couch and enjoying a nice cup of tea on this muggy October day. It’s fall break down here, so we get a couple of days to recoup and rest and gear up for the crazy school days ahead. Fortunately for me, this means I get a little time to devote to my blog. Oh, how I’ve missed you.
Here in Louisiana we are currently using the Common Core State Standards as the basis for our curriculums across the state. Though our governor and state superintendent of education are in a bit of a dispute right now over it, we as educators are still trucking along, educating our children, and using these rigorous standards the best way we can…whether or not we agree with it.
As an SLP, I see the standards that apply to my students and immediately deconstruct them in my head. I try to see the underlying skills that my kids may not be able to do and try to bridge that gap. Now, this is obviously easier said than done. Sometimes the gap is so wide that it’s looking like the Atchafalaya Bridge, but hey you’ve got to start somewhere.
My new product was made to specifically help address some of the CC standards in my speech room and I know you are going to love it as much as I do!
This download includes 12 cards for each of the following areas:
- Kindergarten – WH questions, phonological awareness, language concepts, and grammar
- First Grade – WH questions, phonological awareness, language concepts, and grammar
- Second Grade – WH questions, vocabulary, language con
cepts, and grammar
I love these cards because I can use them in so many different ways. They’re great for practicing in the therapy room or on-the-go. You can use them as a ticket out the door activity, out in the hallways, or even to bring them into a classroom. Sometimes we’ll review a card or 2 if we have a few minutes left in a session.
Assembling them is easy. Just print on card stock, laminate, and cut them out. Then punch a hole in the corner and attach a book ring.
There are deck covers for each area. You can put all the cards for the grade on one large book ring or put them each on individual small rings.
What do you think? Is this something that might help you? 🙂 You can find it in my TPT store here!
