No Print Expressive and Receptive Language Packs!

Hello there!
Well, I am so excited to finally share this with you! Prepare to make your life a little easier :-). I received so much lovely feedback from you on my No-Print Grammar Jeopardy, that it got me thinking… Being a busy speech therapist myself, I understand our time is valuable. I love every single one of the TPT purchases I have made but my pile of laminating has become out of control! All of those beautiful little cards just stare at me from a pile of unfinished work. They long to join in the fun and actually be used for therapy but I have set them aside for a time when they can finally be beautified (aka laminated).

I started thinking…I need to make more no-fuss materials! Enter : No Print Receptive and Expressive Language Packs.  These huge language packs can be used immediately upon purchasing. The best part? You can use them on your iPad!

How do you use these packs? Simply download and save to your computer. If you want, email it to your iPad or save in a cloud program such as Dropbox. Open it and begin right away!



Let’s start with the No Print Expressive Language Pack. In this whopping 229 page download, you receive:
*25 Antonym cards
*25 Synonym cards
*25 Multiple Meaning cards
*25 Asking Questions cards
*25 Giving Directions cards
*25 Sequencing cards
*25 Explaining cards
*25 Describing cards
*25 Compare and Contrast cards

Simply open the download and you will see this “Home” screen. Click on the deck you want to work on.





On each card, you will see a “Next” button (to go on to the next card) and a “Home” button to go back to the main screen. The last card in each deck does not contain a “Next” button. I was wishing there was a way to mix the cards up but after I started using them with my students, I realized that it makes it much easier with the cards in the same order! 


Watch out-There are a few “Bummer” cards throughout!! I keep a post-it note next to me to keep score or have the students keep track of their own points.





Okay, now onto the No Print Receptive Language Pack.



This pack contains 157 pages (smaller in page number but this pack contains a ton of info-main idea cards took quite some time to create!) In it, you receive:
*27 WH Question cards
*25 Inferencing cards
*25 Main Idea cards
*25 Following Directions cards
*26 Naming cards
*25 Predicting cards



How much is your time worth? I so want to make your life a little easier! You can find both of these products in my TPT store and Teacher's Notebook store.

  6. LOVE IT!!!! This is awesome!!!! (We have been teaching our 1st graders about not using more than one punctuation mark when writing, but I'm so excited I have to use more on this post!)

    My kids love using the iPad and I hate cutting lamination, so this is a win win for everyone!

  19. Oh my gosh! How wonderful! I cannot tell you how many items I haven't even printed let alone laminated. I love every single card and want to use them but time is in my way. These seem like a great idea!

  20. This would be so great on my iPad! You are very clear about how it will work and I like that! I am putting both packs on my wishlist.

  21. Wow! I am sooo excited about this! What a timely creation! No more color printing at work and laminating is limited too. This could be the solution I need to still address goal areas while keeping things fun and fresh for my students. I hope to win and try this out with my caseload - so many of my students' goals could be addressed using either pack! Thank you!

  29. I really like this idea. The laminating has gotten a bit out of control for me too. I'm trying to build my professional library as a second year grad student because I know my CFY is going to be nuts...but I have school work to do. Too much to do, not enough time. This would be a super bonus to add to my repertoire. :)

  30. Pick me! I love your products and these new ones too!! I have downloaded several TPT products on iBooks. I enjoy how accessible they are to use in therapy and my students love love love using technology!!

  31. I've been wishing for something like this. It is hard to get things prepared and to decide which skills should be next to prepare... Who needs something yo address there needs theist. Love the 'bummer' cards, adds a little edge and excitement for the kids. Most of all , I love the organization of selecting a 'deck'

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my goodness! What a wonderful idea - I, too have a stack of laminated materials that I hope to get to before St. Patrick's Day - I have so many saved pdf files that I forget what I have. This is the answer - love it! Added it to my wish list before posting.

  33. This is such a great idea! I would love to use these with my students! Lauren.budziak@gmail.com

  34. I can only echo what everyone else is saying about this...what a great idea! I'd love to have either of these!

  35. This is a dream come true! I travel between 4 schools and end up carrying around a huge bag of laminated games. And the amount of time I spend laminating is out of control! Thanks so much for making this!

    ReplyDelete
  36. How wonderful for those of us that are still having to carry "tons" of materials around because we serve students in more than one school or setting. I have my fingers crossed on both hands in hopes of winning!

  37. What a great idea! Ink and laminating paper are tight around here so htis is perfect! Would love to know how you did this! Very cute!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This looks amazing! This is something that I can for sure see myself using regularly. I'm always looking for materials that lighten my bag and my time (cutting and laminating...). This does both!! Thanks for your hard work and great ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have been dreaming of something like this! I agree with others, I love my TPT materials but my cutting, printing, and laminating time is out of control! Would love to see more of these! Let's start a paperless SLP revolution!

  40. WOW! This looks absolutely amazing - your creativity is top notch. Would love to give this a try. I am so behind on printing/cutting/laminating these days, this would be great. THANKS for sharing your talents! c_bisgard@yahoo.com

  42. Looks awesome! Such a great idea to eliminate all the printing/laminating and get more use of the iPad.

  43. This is a great idea! Our pile of things to be laminated is also overwhelming in our school! Would love to use this packet with my language kiddos!
