Speech Camp is in Full Swing!

If you work in the schools... you know May is a complete whirlwind! Nevertheless, Speech Camp is officially in full swing! I'm stopping in to share a closer look at Speech Camp: Receptive Language and Speech Camp: NO PREP Articulation.
This packet contains 4 camp themed receptive language activities and can be found here.

First up, there are 42 cards that address WH ?s. There are six cards dedicated to each WH question and six special cards. Seriously, kids love special cards! They really make these activities more exciting for kids. If they answer the camping themed question correctly they get to keep the card. If they draw a stinky skunk..... they lose all their cards! Student with the most cards wins.
What's in the tent?! Or bag? Or cabin? Students draw a card a must solve the riddle. Many of my students have trouble labeling vocabulary when given a description. I love having as many resources for this skill as possible. Two of many favorite games that target this skill are HeadBandz and Jeepers Peepers! Okay, back to Speech Camp! This card game is perfect for a camp out in the speech room!
Camper Says..... After you read this blog post, follow me on bloglovin'! haha.. This cute card game features temporal directions. If students follow the direction correctly, they get to keep the card. But watch out for the wise owl... he'll steal your cards!
Woodland Creatures N' Categories: These cards feature three different items and students must determine which category they belong to. Beware - don't get lost in the woods!
Seriously, just how cute is this clip art?! If you're curious it's by Melonheadz Illustrating. Summer is coming and if you want to experiment with creating your own materials - def check her out! Fabulous clip art.

I have to be completely honest... I have mountains of articulation cards. The thought of cutting and laminating more articulation cards is daunting to me. At the same time, I want articulation materials to match my themes.... so my solution? NO PREP articulation. Yep... another addition to my color, cut, and glue line. Simply print and go!
Speech Camp: No PREP Articulation can be found here. It's 123 pages! My biggest product yet. Each speech sound is represented by three pages in the initial position and three pages in the final position. In addition, each s-blend is represented by three pages! Oh... each and every word is represented by a picture to support non-readers! Let me tell you.. that was no small feat haha (off topic, if you own my spring color, cut, and glue activities I will be updating them this summer to support non-readers, so be on the lookout :) ).
My students are loving the camping theme! Here are some examples of completed activities:
Is there anything more heartwarming than a child coloring? Just precious.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'm recuperating from a wild week of testing, report writing, and IEPs!
