I use this activity the first week of school or when I get new students in speech. It is a fun way to learn about your students! My students love completing all of the activities in the packet. Once it is finished, I send the packet home. You could also display some the pages in the hall or in your room. Now includes a BOOM Card Version!
No Prep, Low Ink, Print & Go!
This activity is designed for students in k-3 (use your discretion within these grade levels).Some of my older elementary students and middle schoolers also enjoy this. You can use this activity to target following directions, describing, vocabulary, and turn taking skills.
⭐ Includes a version with UK/Canada Spelling (colour/favourite)
⭐BOOM Card version added May 2020 for distance learning/teletherapy (can be used in person too). American and UK/Canada/Australia Spelling BOOM Card versions. Please note: the BOOM card versions do not include all of the same pages as the paper packet.

► Classroom Getting to Know You: This is a BONUS coloring activity. The students will answer questions and color the part of the classroom scene next to them. By the end of the page the students will have learned about each other!
► Why I come to speech: This is the page where the students check, write in, or circle their broad speech objective(s).
► Speech Practice: This page is a good introduction for your students to be aware that they need to work on speech all the time! I also have a reinforcer at the bottom to encourage daily reading!
►The BOOM deck includes the following cards: Type in your name, type in age and grade, eye color, hair color/Style, favorite color, favorite toy, favorite snack, favorite animal, tell about your pet, family questions, what I did over the summer, and my style (pick an outfit)
