  • Using Story Books for Language Therapy: Jan Brett

    I have been enjoying using text for language therapy in the last few months, and I have discovered that I NEVER go wrong with Jan Brett books. The pictures are amazing; the stories have a good structure, and I particularly like the books that have a pictured hint for the next page. In the last few months, my students and I read some of the ...

  • Book It, Part 25: You Did It!

    Every kid can benefit from the kind of positive reinforcement offered by the phrase, ''You did it!'' especially if it is offered in an exuberant voice. I say this because lately with a number of my younger and developmentally younger students I have been using the interactive book app Pat the Bunny, and the positive reinforcement ...

  • A Book for the /r/ Sound!

    A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing Amazon, and a ''Recommended for You'' item popped up. It was the book, ''The Pirate Who Couldn't Say 'Arrr'''! I am trying to be a school-SLP-on-a-budget, but I couldn't resist. I impulsively clicked on the ''1-Click'' ordering button, and the book arrived two days later. The book is by Angie ...

  • Book It, Pt. 24: A Quick Trip to Ireland and the Land of Illusions

    I have spent a fair amount of time here complaining about winter, so it's a good time to let you know that I LOVE St. Patrick's Day, mostly because to me it is the beginning of spring. Also, I am Darn Well Irish (the MacSweeneys, one of them being my grandfather, hail from County Cork, Ireland). This is sort of a weird holiday to target ...

  • Book It, Pt. 23: Have You Had Any Snow Days?

    In my previous post, I mentioned the quiet winter we have had in the northeast, and how I don't mind it at all! However, it's always nice to have a ''snow day'' school cancellation to let you catch up on work (or relaxation). Snow Day, by Patricia Lakin and Scott Nash, is a cute little picture book in which a group of kids with the ...

  • Book It, Pt. 22: Although I Don’t Like Snow...

    Kids do! I was skimming the shelves at Barnes & Noble one day when I saw the cute little picture book ''When it Starts to Snow,'' by Phillis Gershator and Martin Matje. The title instantly made me think, ''temporal structure!'' Through adorable illustrations and rhyming text, the book describes what a variety of animals do when it starts ...

  • Fairy Tales in Speech Therapy!

    I've always loved reading classic fairy tales with my students. Not only are they great for their narrative structure, but they also play a big role in our culture.  Well, I really lucked out, because look what our librarian's daughter painted on the wall right outside my office!   As I walk to my room with my younger ...

  • Book It, Pt. 21: The Alphabet Comes to the Rescue

    Books continue to be my heroes in my school position, sometimes showing up to save me from ennui when I least expect it. I was recently doing a pull-over sort of session in the literacy center (the kindergarten class is nearby and my room is, well, not), and spied the colorful cover of Alphabet Rescue, by Audrey Wood and her son, Bruce. ...

  • Book It, Part 19: Start the Year off with a Positive Attitude

    This time of year, especially in the Northeast, it can seem like everyone is struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder, including our students. It's cold, it's dark, and the smallest thing can set us off! As SLPs, we can be good counselors to our students and encourage positive self-talk for all sorts of occasions.  Self-talk ...

  • Book It, Part 17: Books About Listening!

    Listening is such a key skill for SLPs in schools to address and foster for all students, whether they have auditory comprehension deficits, social communication problems or are just overly active in the classroom setting. Comprehension exercises are one way to do this, but it is helpful to be as strategic as possible and give ...
