    “What’s in your box, Mrs. Elizabeth?”

    So, I’m here today to share some organization tips and tricks, some free printables, and some links to great resources for December speech therapy!

    First off, I use tote boxes by season.  I use these very cute Monthly Labels and have 4 boxes: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.  I change them out in the back of my car every 3 months and always have my evaluation box with me.

    I print my planner each year from Polka Dot Posie Print.  I love the seasonal colors and the options to customize what I need each year.  I use the discbound system and other accessories from Happy Planner.  These are easy to find on amazon. 

    For fun, you should definitely check out A Perfect Blend Teaching on instagram.  Each month she uploads wallpaper that you could use on your computer, phone, or even your watch!  It’s free and just a fun way to change things up each month.  These cute gnomes were my favorite this December.  

    What’s In My Box?

    Visual Schedule (I use this with children whether we are face to face or in teletherapy format)

    (*Note: I typically use First…Then only as a schedule style and not as a “reward” system).
