How to Play the Game Spot It!

      I can't think of many jobs that allow their employees to play games most of the work day. :D Luckily my profession is one of those few lucky ones!! I learned about this game called, "Spot It" about a year ago when one of my coworkers introduced me to the game. It is a pretty mind blowing game, but so much fun. It's easy to learn, which is always good, because I hate the feeling of spending too much time on teaching my students how to play the game and missing out on therapy.

How to Fold a Fortune Teller

      Do you remember in 3rd grade folding paper into little fortune tellers?! "Pick a number, (4) one, two, three, four"! "Pick a color, (green) G.R.E.E.N". Pick a color, (blue)...You are going to grow up to become a teacher"! It's all coming back to me now. :) Ah to be a kid again. :)

      I remember playing, but forgot just how to make and fold the fortune tellers.

2nd Graders and Common Core

        Oh common core what am I going to do with you? It's time now to talk about my little 2nd graders. Yet again I have to make sure that my goals are being aligned with common core state standards. Keeping with that in mind I needed some help. Digging through the common core standards for my 2nd graders I came across the standards that I as a speech path I am currently already using in my therapy.

Jumping into Fall

        It's almost that beautiful time of year when the leaves begin to change. I love fall! It is by far my favorite season. :) Plus it's the time of year that you can dress all cute in a pair of blue jeans with a cream sweater top, brown boots, and a colorful scarf...I just hope it doesn't rain so I can actually show off my cute outfit!! Okay enough about my clothes. ;)
