Sometimes I forget my iPad at home. Has that ever happened to you? I'm sure it has and I'm also positive that you've experienced a situation or two when a speech therapy student made a comment to you like, "Aw, but you promised that we could use the iPad today." We speech-language pathologists have a lot on our minds, so it only makes sense that sometimes we forget things. However, I created a bunch of fantastic coloring sheets that can cover you in the event that you forget your beloved iPad.
Shhh, the iPad is sleeping.
My students get a kick out of the idea that our iPad is a living and breathing creature that needs to take a nap from time to time. That's why it isn't in the speech room sometimes. Here is a coloring sheet that I use that perfectly illustrates an iPad catching a serious snooze. While my students color this sheet, I ask them WH questions that relate to where they think the iPad is sleeping, what they think the iPad is dreaming about, and why they think the iPad is dreaming about that. You'd be amazed at the responses I have gotten from my kiddos. "Mr. Raj, he is probably sleeping in a hotel room and dreaming about downloading I Dare You Articulation or Multiple Choice Articulation so he can play those apps on his belly!" or "I'm sure he is sleeping in his bed and dreaming about some new earbuds that he could plug into himself because he wants to listen to the new Beyonce album."
I also created 3 more coloring sheets that can be downloaded by visiting:
