First up, we have been busy making our Summer Speech Packets.
I started off by printing all the packets I would need and arranging them on my counter. This took me around 30 minutes print and arrange. Not bad! I also had some fun with them this year and bought little tubes of bubbles ($0.25) to attach to each packet.
The kids choose their cover page, two pieces of construction paper and are allowed to color. I say this because this is the one time during the year, I let my students color in speech (and they still have to multi-task by working on sounds or goals). I'm tough stuff, you know!
After their beautified covers, we attach them together with staples, create a hole and thread some ribbon through to attach our bubbles.
If you would like my "Blow up your learning!" tags, like my facebook page and you may download them HERE!
Voila! My kids are having a blast this week creating their own little summer packets. And that makes me feel good too, because I know they'll be getting lots of practice over the summer. How do I know they'll complete it? I'm not below bribing and promised a prize for all complete books next fall. I have some very motivated little kiddos!
Oh...and last but definitely not least, I baked cupcakes for all my kiddos' last days. Let's work on plurals. Student A eats 1 cupcake. Mrs. Allison eats 3 ______. Never mind-let's not work on plurals =)
