So, on to speech blogging: I've created a very simple back-to-school book on Tarheel Reader. For those of you who want to know, Tarheel Reader is a wonderful resource. You can search the numerous books by keyword and download them, then edit as you wish. The pictures are real, and the language level is often appropriate for the kids I work with. My book, "Things we do at School", is here. I've also uploaded it to Google docs for you to download, and uploaded some icons to go with it. Download, print, laminate, and velcro, and then have the kids match or request the icons during your sessions. As an extension activity, let them think of other things they do at school, take pictures, and add to the book!

Have fun with this. I haven't actually read this book with children yet. It's hard to do speech therapy activities when the kids are still on vacation! My joy starts in two weeks.
