Worried about continuing a distance learning model? I've got your back!
I have created ten new weeks to add to my original distance learning materials! Same format, new activities, and targets!
TEN WEEKS of lesson plans will provide you with exactly what you need to send home each week to keep kids engaged and practicing their skills. Each week you will send home three activities. The activities have already been sorted for you into the following categories:
- Language (level 1 – lower elementary)
- Language (level 2 – upper elementary)
- Articulation (level 1 – word level and earlier developing sounds)
- Articulation (level 2 – sentence-level and later developing sounds)
- Social Skills (all elementary levels)
There is even an editable letter to send home in introducing the plan! Simply edit it for the group or client and email home along with the activities.
1. Divide your caseload into groups based on goals and skill level (language 1, language 2, articulation 1, articulation 2, social skills).
2. Personalize the editable letter by group or by theindividual student. Cut and paste this information into the emails you send home.
3. Email each group (language 1, language 2, articulation 1, articulation 2, social skills). I highly recommend emailing yourself and then BCCing the families for privacy reasons.
4. Attach the three activities for the week.
5. Press send!
6. Repeat next week
3 activities to send home each week for each level. These may include:
- Articulation word lists
- Articulation picture lists
- Story maps
- Reading passages
- Book comprehension
- And more!

Should I buy this product or your first Distance Learning packet?
Honestly, it doesn't matter! They are similar but different...
What is my school district is doing a hybrid of distance and in-person learning?
You can use these materials in person or email them to parents. So this resource is perfect for hybrid models!
FEEDBACK from Distance Learning #1:
❤️ "I haven't even seen all of the resources yet, and I KNOW this is my favorite purchase from TPT, ever. THANK YOU!"
❤️ "This has truly been a lifesaver for me with schools being closed. This is absolutely everything I need to send to my students and keep up distance learning. Thank you SO MUCH. Your materials are the best!"
❤️ "Thank you, Cheri, for creating and sharing this amazing resource. When I learned my school board would be moving to a distance learning model for an indefinite amount of time, I felt overwhelmed trying to plan activities for the wide variety of students I have on my caseload. This package is going to be so helpful, it felt great to be able to tell my supervisor "I have a plan, and it is ready to go". Thank you for allowing these activities to be emailed to students. I have purchased many of your TPT products in the past and I am always impressed!"
FEEDBACK from Distance Learning #2:
❤️ "I loved the first set of these resources and was absolutely giddy to see set #2 come out! A great variety of whole language and literacy activities that are easy to implement via telepractice and target any articulation, language, or social goal you may have. Great resource!"
❤️ "I bought the first set when we started with distance learning, and it was the BEST purchase I made from tpt for that purpose. When this set came out, and with not knowing what school will look like in the fall, I didn't hesitate to buy it. I recommend the product for these reasons: 1) it's a simple way to make packets that actually cover SLP goals for distance learning, 2) the pages and the directions are simple for parents and students to understand and implement, 3) you can make a single set of stim materials and they work for all the lessons-so very minimal if any prep is required, 4) there aren't a lot of pages so it's NOT overwhelming for kids or parents and doesn't take hours of sorting and printing at the copy machine 5) the packet covers most goal areas (except fluency-and that is a slight drawback, but not significant), 6) all of the lessons use materials that are easy to access (e.g., books read aloud on youtube for example) suggested books can be swapped for another the child likes or has at home too 7) when parents used pages from DL #1 the feedback was very positive, 8) if we aren't doing distance learning in the fall, these pages will make a nice homework review so it's not a waste, 9) all lessons are labeled clearly but only with level 1 and level 2, and finally 10) these are blackline masters so printing costs are kept down. Absolutely LOVE the product...."
