Fall Putty Scents
Yummy! Fall smells make me think of fires, hot tea, apple cider doughnuts - ha! This Putty Scents by @mindware is a great addition to your sensory bin! Give the kids a smell and see what comes to their mind. I bet you'll get lots of great stories!
Kids. Love. Flashlights. They will look for any old thing and it will be exciting with a flashlight! In grad school, did you hang articulation cards on the wall and have the kiddos find them with a flashlight? If there weren't so much to trip on in my classroom, I would consider it now!
Story Grammar Checklist
Two checklists in one! One side has visuals for key elements of a summary including characters, events, problem, and solution. The other side has an easy-to-remember "Somebody Wanted But So Then" organizer for a summary. Perfect companion for your sequencing cards, Happy Campers Reusable Stickers story, or "Animal Village" Story Cards. Grab some for yourself in our shop!
Moon Shaped Paper Clips
My 2 year old son is obsessed with the moon right now. He has to find it outside of our window every single night before bed. He told me, "moon is a a-nana [banana], mommy!" and of course I thought - great comparing, buddy! SLP always on my mind - can you relate? But really, even our office supplies make great conversation starters for our little ones!
Each month with a new set of sequencing cards, we get another opportunity to engage our students about their personal experiences with a new topic. Besides just putting the pictures in order, these cards are a great tool to start conversations. What personal experiences will your students share to relate to this story? It's fun to find out each month!
