Wild About Books Wednesday Linky!

Today, I'm linking up with Scarlett, from Speech is Sweet, to talk about a great book to use in therapy around Christmas time.

Merry Christmas Splat, by Rob Scotton, is such a cute little story about a silly cat, Splat, who decides to write a letter to Santa to tell him what he wants for Christmas. Well, Splat's sister puts the idea in his head that he hasn't been very good this year and won't get anything from Santa. So, in order to show that he's a good cat, Splat then goes off and helps his mom get everything ready for Christmas. However, he really only creates more work for his mom along the way. But don't worry, in the end, Splat DOES get a gift from Santa :)

This book has lots of great opportunities for working on context clues, inferencing and vocabulary. It's also great for working on /s/ and /s/ blends!

Head on over to Speech is Sweet to check out more great book ideas to use in therapy! Thanks for stopping by :)

Easy Therapy Prep- Print and Go Packs plus GIVEAWAY!

I feel like I've neglected my little blog lately :(  It's been over a week since I've written a post!! Well, I am back on track and today I thought I'd give you a glimpse of what I've been up to :) I have three new Print and Go products for Winter, and two new bundles that include the print and go packs. Yay!!  I use these packs SO MUCH in my therapy sessions. They make it super easy to plan, prep and go :) It works great for sending home for homework (I don't have to worry about planning an activity anddd finding homework) and it also helps a TON in mixed groups. Take a look:

Winter Print and Go Articulation Pack Early Developing Sounds targets sounds: t, d, k, g, f, and v

Winter Print and Go Articulation Pack Later Developing Sounds targets: sh, ch, j, l, s, z, th, r, vocalic r, l blends, s blends, and r blends

Winter Print and Go Articulation BUNDLE includes both packs above at a discount of more than 20%

I also have a new Winter Print and Go Language Pack that targets a variety of language goals including 2-3 step directions, prepositions, categories, compare/contrast, naming described objects (bingo), synonyms/antonyms and multiple meaning words.

This pack is included in my Print and Go Language Pack BUNDLE. The bundle also includes a Fall pack, and will soon have a Spring/Summer pack added. Psst... if you buy the bundle now, you'll get the Spring/Summer pack for FREE (you just have to re-download after I've added it). So basically, you're already saving tons of $$ by purchasing a bundle, and will also get something for free, IF you purchase before I add it! (It will be added by late February or early March). 

If you click on the pictures, it will take you to each of the products in my TpT shop, which provides more information for each activity. Please feel free to email me with any questions!

And one last, very important, thing- I am SO extremely thankful for everyone who has supported Speech Made Simple and who has purchased products from my store. Thank YOU! To show a little of my gratitude, I am having a GIVEAWAY!!  With this giveaway- you can win a copy of my Winter Print and Go Language Pack and my Winter Print and Go Articulation Bundle.
