A few cans of spray paint can change your perspective...

I love spray paint. It's so easy to use and it can change up your therapy room atmosphere in a matter of hours. Here's how:
Grab a friend. 
Empty out your file cabinets (shred or throw out what you don't need). Less is more.
Take the cabinets outside and place them on a tarp or some bulletin board paper.
It will take about two or three cans per file cabinet. I always use the little gun, aka "spray grip." Buy one, they are only a couple bucks and they will really save your hands and nails;)
Allow the first coat to dry...then spray on a second coat. 
Allow that coat to dry and then go grab your friends to help you move the cabinets back in. 
Put them in a place where they will be a focal point. That was a lot of hard work and you should show it off for sure.

Schedule Speech Therapy FREEBIE

Can I tell you something? As I am writing this blog post, I am really unsure of what my year will look like. I am a school-based SLP. I have a full caseload from 3 years to 2nd grade. I think lots of you are with me. Online for some students, direct therapy with others. I can't even imagine how I will figure out my schedule in a few weeks. Do you need help with organizing your schedule? I have created a simple schedule that you can access HERE. If you are looking for the bundle that includes all editable forms take a look in my TpT store HERE.
I know this year will be difficult for all of us. I hope this schedule will help you in some way.

Sweet Strawberry Craft for Speech Therapy

Who doesn't love a strawberry? Did you know my crafts have language and articulation targets? I have a full caseload ranging from 3 year olds to 5th graders. I try really hard to make my life as simple and managable as possible. So this strawberry becomes the craft that I make with my entire caseload. I even have a blank strawberry incase I get a new student with a language goal that isn't included in the craft. It's a win, win. Grab this Berry-licious Treat HERE in my TeachersPayTeachers store. Happy Crafting! 
Check out this video to see just how easy creating this craft can be!

Fall Tree Speech Therapy Craft

Fall is my favorite. I'm so excited about next week's lesson plans. We are making a super cute tree with our speech targets!
Grab the yellow, red and orange paper from this pack: I make three copies for each goal that I need and then use this puncher to create my circles: One thing you need to know about this puncher. It likes multiple sheets of paper. It doesn't like to punch out one sheet at a time. Save all of your left over circles! You will need them for a future craft:) Until next time...craft on speech peeps.
