  • 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 ...

  • 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, Pt. 20: A Fun Look at "Non"-Fiction

    As kids progress through the grades, the reading material and overall content within the classroom shifts from being narrative or story-based to being more expository. Kids are expected to deal with real-life content and facts and (hopefully) go beyond the basic details to do more advanced thinking within the curriculum. That said, ...

  • An Online Discovery!

    Thanksgiving is now over, and we'll soon be heading toward winter holidays! Today I want to share a subscription website that I am thankful for having rediscovered. I had access to it a few years ago, but it has really improved and I now have more students who can benefit. The website is http://www.new-2-you.com Each week, there is a ...

  • Book it, Part 13: Finding Books on Curriculum Topics

    One of the best ways an SLP in a public school setting can align with classroom contexts is to use picture books related to key curriculum topics. In doing so, we can do interactive read-alouds and emphasize categories, sentence and grammatical structures, vocabulary, story grammar, and balanced literacy strategies (e.g., ...

  • Book It, Part 8: More Resources to Support Using Picture Books in Therapy

    When I first started to become interested in using picture books as contexts for intervention in my public school SLP position, I was really happy to find Books are for Talking Too, by Jane Gebers. It was clearly just the resource I was looking for at the time - a guide specific to SLPs detailing the power of using picture books. Many great ...

  • An Awesome App!

    This summer I've been doing a little work for a speech clinic in my town. It's been a lot of fun, and one of the things I love most is their iPad®! I wrote about application of the iPad in speech therapy a few months ago, but I didn't even scratch the surface. I know that other bloggers and readers are much more knowledgeable about this topic ...

  • Book It: Picture Books and Literature-Based Intervention

    You might be surprised, given the topics I usually blog about here at ADVANCE (and elsewhere), that I actually enjoy working with books about as much as I do technology. It's easy to see the connection, though, when you think of books as a context through which we can address speech and language skills, just as a website can serve as a similar ...
