A very sweet week!

Wow, what a week!

An amazing trip to Crayons 2 Computers - a free store for teachers in Cincinnati. I scored backpacks, school supplies, books, art supplies, prizes, and soooo much more. Here's a tiny glimpse of my goodies:

Can you tell I'm ready for spring?

An order from Super Duper.. What could be inside?!
Say and Do Vocabulary Bingo and Vocabulary Chipper Chat! 

I also won a $50 Walmart gift card for my speech room! I promptly ordered 9 of my favorite books: The Gruffalo, SkippyJon Jones, and Edward the Emu to name a few.

I ended the week preparing for my upcoming book unit for If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff. Check it out in my TBT store here.
Cut, Laminate, Cut. Repeat if desired. haha

Have a sweet weekend! My boyfriend and I are celebrating our one year anniversary. Woot! Woot!

Three Million Teachers!

Jenna at Speech Room News is hosting a linky party to celebrate the upcoming TPT sale!

Although my store isn't even a week old yet, I decided to participate anyways. My little store only has four activities at the moment - but they are definitely worth checking out.

My students recently had a blast with this If You Give a Dog a Donut Book Companion:

 You can find this activity here.

I also have a speech and language book companion for If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff:

You can find this activity here.

There are sooo many things on my wishlist! Here are a few things I plan on purchasing: 

My students recently LOVED Speech Room News' There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose book companion! So I plan on purchasing this for March: 

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!

I work with K-2, so my eyes have been on this activity for awhile:

Candy Land Language Cards

I've always been a huge fan of Readers' Theatre and would love to give this activity a try:

You can find this activity here.

There's also some clip art in my shopping cart! Happy shopping!

St. Patrick's Day Pronouns!

I spent Friday night watching Netflix and whipping up a free St. Patrick's Day Activity! Can you say nerd? I have many students who are currently working on pronouns. I think this cute card game is going to be a hit!

The directions are simple. The student draws a card and fills in the blank with the correct pronoun. If they are correct they get to keep the card, if they are wrong it goes in a discard pile. Watch out for Leprechauns! If a student draws a Leprechaun card they either have to give all their cards away or take an extra turn.

Here's a preview:


You can download the freebie here.

I hope you enjoy it! Leave a comment and let me know what your students think! 

Thanks to www.mycutegraphics.com for the cute clip art!

Presidents' Day Marches On....

This week in my speech room students have been busy practicing their speech sounds with a presidential twist. I briefly introduced students to our 16th president - Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Of course, my students then proceeded to give him a makeover!


I must say, Mr. Lincoln looks rather dapper in a lime green suit!

I'm crazy about color, cut, and glue activities. They are a fantastic way to manage larger than ideal artic groups. Students keep themselves busy with coloring, cutting, and gluing while their classmates engage in repetitive drills. These activities can be whipped up very quickly and lend themselves well to homework.

Hope you're having a happy week!

Speech is Sweet!

Well, looks like you've stumbled across my very first blog post! Welcome to Speech is Sweet!

My name is Scarlett and I'm a speech-language pathologist in the Greater Cincinnati area. I've been working in a pediatric setting for almost three years now. Wow, time goes by so fast! Recently, I've also began working PRN in a skilled nursing facility. I love helping people communicate - young and old!

I'm starting this blog to write about my passion in life - speech-language pathology. I love perusing pinterest, reading education blogs, and scouring teachers-pay-teachers for enriching speech/language activities. I've always wanted to actively participate and I'm finally taking the leap.

I hope you join me in my sweet journey.
