What's in Your Cart? BTS Linky Party

School is starting for me on Monday. My summer seems to have been unbelievably short, and I was a little sad about going back. Lucky for me, TPT decided to throw a sale! I have cheered up considerably. Who doesn’t like shopping? 

I love the “What’s In Your Cart?” Linky hosted by Jenna Rayburn of Speech Room News. Before I became a blogger, I would check Jenna’s links before every sale to find great new products. I am thrilled to finally be able to link up myself!

First, I’d like to show you what is in my cart. In addition to several sets of clip art, I am excited to try these products:

Sounds Like Fun’s Back to School Therapy Pack

Jenna Rayburn’s AAC Core Word of the Week

The Dabbling Speechie’s AAC Starter Kit

I hope I have given you some good ideas for your own cart, but before I let you go, I’d like to tell you about a few of my products I think you’ll like. Feel free to add them as wellJ.

Since we are celebrating “Back to School,” how about this fun game for all ages and all skills: 
Pass the Prize: Back to School

For those of you who are feeling like you might need some year-round materials, I would suggest this, which covers both articulation and language:
Print and Go Speech Seeks: Year-Round

And finally, one of my top five products:
Football Speech and Language Pack

It is great for introducing the topic of Football, and both boys and girls love it!

The Best Thing I Learned This Summer

Hey, y’all!

It’s time for another blog post, and this time I’m linking up with The Frenzied SLPs to share the best thing I learned this summer.

Like most people, I love my mom. A lot. I have always thought she was a good mom, and I have always appreciated her. This summer, however, I learned that my mom is much more amazing than I have given her credit for.

Currently, Mom has custody of my six-year-old niece, A. This is her:

Can you tell she’s a bit of a stinker?

Also, this is her:

Can you tell she’s also a sweetie?

Mom would not want me to say how old she is, so I’ll just let you know she is two years away from retirement from teaching in special education. She has her hands full. Even so, this summer, she decided we should go visit my sister in San Diego. With A. On a plane.

I was a little reluctant to go at first. No worries, though. Mom talked me into it by buying my ticket for me. How could I say no then? So we went.

I suspected A had ADHD before the trip. Now I am fairly certain she does. She has not been diagnosed by a doctor, but I think that will probably come soon. So far, Mom has been trying to manage it with firm routines and diet. This has helped some, but A still has a ways to go.

I’m sure you can imagine what the plane ride to and from California (from Georgia) was like with A. It wasn’t the worst thing I've ever done, but it wasn’t pleasant, either. It also rained two of the three days we were there which meant we were cooped up inside a small apartment a good bit of the time. With A bouncing off the walls (literally). Still, Mom was determined to enjoy our trip. So we did. Because of my amazing, awesome, fantastic, fabulous mom, I got to see these spectacular things:
My baby sister!

The Pacific Ocean

 Thank you, Mom. You are the best and I am so glad I learned that this summer!

TPT Seller Challenge: Making Masterpieces and Frenzied Following

Hello again, everyone!

I’ve been a bit absent from the blog the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately, I was not in Vegas or Phoenix, I just had a lot of other things happening at home-visiting relatives, moving my daughter, getting braces for my son, etc. Lately, it seems like my summer has been way busier than my school year!

While this post seems to be EXTREMELY late, I did complete Week 3 of the TPT Seller Challenge: “Make Your Masterpiece.” I don’t know that I would call it a masterpiece, but it is a new, completed product. This Fall Print and Go Language Pack is perfect for those times when you really do just need to print and go. With the exception of the cover and the TOU page, it is completely black and white. It provides fall-themed targets and practice for the following:
·       ·        Listening comprehension
·        Identifying and labeling vocabulary
·        Pronouns, possessives, and verbs
·        Categories
·        Attributes and functions
·        Concepts
·        Questions

You can find it by clicking on the image below. Also, it and everything else in my store will be 20% off July 13 & 14 for the Sizzling Summer Sale!

Speaking of the TPT Seller Challenge, Week 4 is a fantastic idea in my opinion. It is called “Follow Frenzy,” and it is about recognizing some new friends who have helped you and you think others should follow. Here is my shout-out to two fabulous ladies I have met (virtually) while participating in this challenge:

Both of these ladies are great editors and offer encouragement and praise as well as corrections! If you don’t know them already, check out their Facebook pages here:

Well, I feel like I am at least a little caught up (for now anyway). Next Sunday, I plan to be in San Diego visiting my baby sister, so I can’t make any promises for blog posts until about the middle of the following week. Don’t hold your breath waiting for me, ok? J

Lots of love,
