If you feeling overwhelmed with all of the organizing, scheduling, and paperwork that happens at the start of each school year, I hear you. I created these materials because I want to make your life EASIER by helping you have fun activities likes these that you can print off and use in a pinch, because let’s be real… there's just not enough time in the day to ALWAYS have beautifully laminated, colorful materials prepared.
Wanting to "declutter" and have less "stuff?" Short on storage space? Travel to multiple sites? Print and go activities like these don't need to be physically stored all year round. Keep it saved digitally on your computer, and print only the pages you need, when you need it.
Similar activities are used throughout many language target pages in this set, so your students in mixed groups (aka your whole caseload, #amiright) can be doing the same types of activities while working on different targets. For example, your articulation students may be stamping an open-ended dot marker page practicing their targets, while another student is stamping WH questions, and another is stamping object functions. One student may be coloring their verb book, while another may be coloring a pronoun page. With these activities, you'll be able to just keep hitting "print" and running off to therapy with minimal materials needed!
