Favorite Therapy Item Thursday -> Year Round Literature For Language And Artic Resource Book Post Written by Laura from All Y'all Need

We are privileged to have our talented speech-language pathologist friend from Texas, Laura, from All Y'all Need guest post today about her favorite therapy item. This literature resource book looks super valuable and we think it looks like one we would all love to have available all year long for book themed therapy session ideas .  Thank you to Laura for this wonderful post!! 
Manda & Shanda

Hi! I'm Laura, and with my sister Amy and cousin Lisa, part of All Y'all Need. I'm excited to be here with the Twin Sisters today discussing my favorite therapy item. It's actually a resource book:

Seems boring, I know. But out of all the therapy products I have, Year-Round Literature for Language and Artic has made the most difference in my therapy. From this book, I have a whole bookshelf of books for therapy and four packed filing-cabinet drawers of grab-and-go materials.

I started working in the schools in 1993, right around the time thematic units started booming, and I loved it! I love books and look for any way to use them in therapy, and it's so easy to plan around a central theme.  Year-Round was the first book that really broke down the information into ways I could use books to address the multiple goals in groups. Here's an inside page:

Each unit has three books and several games - perfect for targeting multiple goals in groups. I even went a little crazy with Boardmaker and file folders because some of my Functional Academics students needed visuals.

To make these, I used an icon for each question and then answer icons have Velcro so they come on and off.

In this example, the snowball, path, and pocket are glued onto the manila folder. During a group, I take off the Velcroe'd pictures and pass them out according to goals. For example, a student working on /k/ would get the /walk/ card, and a student working on verbs would get the /throw/ card. Then, I say, "What is a snowball used for?" and we look at our cards and match up the answers to the questions.

Then, I make it a little harder with three choices, like this one for categories:

Sometimes, I pass out the cards one at a time to students, and other times, they get a whole bunch, depending on the group. It is so easy to target artic and language with these activities!

I also have Velcroe'd sentences where students have to arrange the cards to make sentences. For my FA students in particular, we talk about how the uppercase letter is the first card, the period is the last card, and then work on filling in the middle. We get a lot of discrimination and sequencing with the sentences.

It was a lot of work to set these up, but I now have multiple themes and four drawers to grab the folders from. A lot of preparation time then has turned into a huge time saver now. I've gotten a little lazy in recent years and haven't made as many file folders. But since I've done these units so much, it's much easier to come up with my own questions, and I've learned that my kindergartners and 1st graders need to be sequencing words in sentences, especially sight words, so I don't use as many pictures. But I still use these units frequently with my FA students. Most of my students come twice a week, so we do these activities the first day and then a game the second day to narrow down targets, and I really like that pattern.

There are so many resources now through Teachers pay Teachers and bloggers that are in my inventory of supplies. Year-Round Literature for Language and Artic is still a valuable resource for addressing multiple goals in a group and can be a springboard for incorporating more books into therapy, and it's still my go-to when planning. If you like using books in therapy, consider this resource.

Every time the student is being expected, you can put a check, plus, line, etc. in one of the expected behavior slots. Every time the student is being unexpected, you can put a check, plus, line, etc. in one of the unexpected behavior slots.

Carrotville: Spring Expressive Language Games

This 38 page download features Carrotville, a nice little town where bunnies live and play. It features homes, apartments, a grocery store and even a bunny barbershop! The activities center around the Carrotville board game. Two ways to play are included. The first option features specific skill development, while the second features carryover of language skills by targeting mixed stimulus cards. Game point and score cards are included. Each type of building corresponds to a language activity to complete. When students land on a building they answer the corresponding questions.

The games are called 'In your shoes.' The download includes 3 games: Problem Solving 1 & 2 and Perspective Taking. They feature these cute shoe graphics from KPM doodles. The problem solving games include social situations that require the student to identify a solution. I use this large graphic in the middle of the table to remind the kids to identify the problem and the solution! The game cards are tennis shoes with a social problem listed. For example: A new student came to school today. He’s standing near the lunch line looking nervous.. What could you do? The level one cards are appropriate for students in grades k-4, but depending on developmental level they may work for your older students as well. Level 2 problem solving includes social problems appropriate for students in grades 4-8. For example: Chad wants to play football and be in band. They have practice after school at the same time. What should he do?
The perspective taking cards encourage kids to imagine themselves in someone else's shoes! You can use them to open discussion about empathy and making decisions based on others feelings. Theory of mind is such a difficult skill to teach, but it's fun when it clicks! The lack of perspective taking skills can really impact the kids ability to be sensitive to others and identify how others are feeling and reacting in a conversation. The shoe cards each have a social situation. The students can identify how different people in the situation would feel. For example: Kennedy and Jordan both had their birthday parties last week and you only went to Kennedy’s. How does Jordan feel?The games each come with these ' Gum on your Shoes' cards. They can help make the activity seem like more of a game if you need to use them! 

31) Visit The Speech Bubble's store for these two wished for documents! 

Students cannot survive on definitions alone. With the shift to common core, students are going to be expected to use their deductive skills to determine word meanings. Cooking Up Context Clues targets the this skill. There are 42 multiple choice cards and two ways to play:
1: Students choose a card. If they answer correctly they may keep the card and add it to their mat. The first student to collect one of each picture on their mat wins.
2: Students choose a card. If they answer correctly they may keep the card. Watch out for cards that cause you to lose a card and for ones that allow you to go again.

Here is what is inside the book companion:
Print and laminate book. Assemble book so that text is on the left and the large color splash page is on the right. Laminate pages and cards. Cut cards. 
Read, ‘ A Colorful You ’ to your students. Keep the book out and available for reference.
pg 3. Match the color idiom to its meaning. The idiom and meaning are color coded for easy checking. There are 4 idioms and one meaning for each. 
pg 4-11. Use the included feeling/color identification pages to help students understand each color/emotion. Have students fill out each page. Once they have completed all the pages they will have a reference book of basic emotions. 
pg 12-15. Lay cards face up on the table. Have students match the emotions to the correct color. There are three emotion words for each color. Emotions are the same color as the color they correspond to.
pg 16. Use the description web to help students map out events that trigger particular emotions.
pg 17-23. Read the story to your students. Have them identify which color/emotion the child in the story is feeling. They can then state/write synonyms that would describe that students emotion. There is one work sheet for each color.

Ultimate Data Collection Binder for Speech and Language

The perfect tool for DATA COLLECTION, all aligned to the Common Core State Standards! This comprehensive binder has everything you need to easily collect data over several trials and sessions, whether for students on IEPs or with RtI. Developed out of my own need for easy and efficient data collection, this product quickly gathers baselines, progress, strengths and weaknesses over multiple sessions in the areas of Phonological Awareness, Grammar, Vocabulary, Language and Articulation. I am soooo excited about the newest collection to my Common Core family because I just know it will keep you organized and save you valuable time. 

Perfect for diverse articulation groups! Contains over 20 plays for groups of 2-4 students targeting the most difficult sounds to master. 
Readers’ Theater is an evidence-based strategy for improving reading fluency. In Readers' Theater, students rehearse reading a script repeatedly to prepare for a later performance for peers or other audiences. Students are assigned parts or roles for performing the reading of the play's text. Research supports the use of Readers’ Theater to increase fluency, intonation and confidence. (Martinez, Roser, and Strecker, 1999 and Griffin and Rasinski, 2004). 
This packet contains over 20 plays for diverse articulation groups! It is perfect for those students who need a little extra boost in practicing sounds at the reading and conversation level. Contains both a student copy and a therapist copy for easy data tracking. Tried and tested on my own students! I've found that this method:
1. helps my students remember their correct sounds
2. provides practice for using appropriate tone of voice and intonation 
3. improves their confidence, especially if they can then perform for a small audience.

Appropriate Conversation Topics, Appropriate Conversation Partners

Often when I work with students who have a deficit with social skills, I find that it is important to teach them about appropriate conversation topics and the people whom it is appropriate to talk about certain subjects with. In addition, it is important to discuss conversation topics that are inappropriate to talk about with certain groups of people, especially strangers even if they are a "safe stranger". This 43 page packet aims to help teach students about different groups of people we talk to on a regular basis, appropriate conversation topics, and inappropriate conversation topics with certain groups of people.
Included in the packet:
- A visual chart with four different conversational groups
- Conversation topic strips/quotation strips to place onto the visual in regards to the appropriate group to discuss the topic/use the quote with
- A social skills story to teach students more about conversation partners and appropriate conversation topics
- A visual of "People I Talk To" for students to write people they are comfortable speaking with in four different conversational groups
