    February Speech Therapy

    “What’s in your box, Mrs. Elizabeth?”
    So, I’m back again to share some organization tips and tricks, some free printables, and some
    links to great resources for February speech therapy!

    Organization

    Monthly Labels: 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 use these sterilite 80 qt gasket boxes.  They have held up for many years and have a seamless design that keeps unwanted things from creeping in (eek!).

    Watch Faces and Backgrounds: Did you know A Perfect Blend has free watch faces and backgrounds in her instagram stories each month?  You should check those out.  So cute and fun to change each month.  My favorite last year was a drawing of the inaugural poet, Amanda Gorman.

    Planner: 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. 

    The Cozi App:
    Our family uses this app to keep up with appointments and our full schedule for the 6 of us.  It also allows you to make grocery lists, sync with alexa, and upload recipes for meal planning. 

    Visuals: I use these with children whether we are face to face or in teletherapy format.  I’ve added a digital version, which has been really helpful in teletherapy.  I also created a set of digital reinforcers, which has been especially helpful for my kiddos age 5+. I’ve been using lots of visuals to help keep kids on task and engaged. 
    This set has digital and print versions.

    Ultimate Visual Schedule

    Task Boxes, File Folders, Worksheets, and Activities:

    Ten Silly Snowmen Cover

    Adaptive Books: Ten Silly Snowmen is a fun little adaptive book perfect for teaching simple counting.  This set comes with a Boom Card e-version, too!  I carry this one from January through February.  After all, many of us are just now getting snow…and lots of it!

    Just for Fun: 

    • Brooks has blue and white snowman shoes (amazon for the win)!  My tote bag is from 31 gifts.  Normally, I’d cart it into my school and clinic sites, but for now, I haul it up and down the stairs to my work space at home.  I’m still carrying these over from January because it is cold and icy!

       

    Happy February, everyone!!!
