Do your students come into the speech room and put their heads down on the desk? This used to happen with my middle school students every week. They were NOT happy to come to speech. One week I pulled out my iPhone and let them watch a popular You Tube clip. After 3 minutes of laughing and watching clips, I was able to get them to work for the next 30 minutes on our speech and language goals. Since then, I've been finding ways to spark their interest with clips!
This packet is 88 pages. It features 6 different pre-made lessons plus one blank set that you can customize to work with any clip. I use these lesson with middle school students with cognitive disabilities, and upper elementary students with language impairments. There are activities for grammar, language, inferencing, comprehension, articulation, and social goals included.
I use these companion sheets with upper elementary
and middle school students. I start our therapy session
by showing the YouTube clip on my iPad or computer. You can access the video easily by scanning the QR code with a QR code scanning app. We usually watch the video twice. Then we use the discussion questions. Some student groups write their answers while other groups just use them as discussion topics. Continue through the worksheets that are appropriate with your students. Each page has the QR code at the top of the page so that students can access the video later.

Each YouTube clip is appropriate for school. Unfortunately we cannot
control what ads are included on the pages when you open the video. Please use EXTREME caution when using this site with your students. I
use the iPad so I can hide the screen until I have cued up the video and have placed it in expanded view Please screen each video before you show it. The authors of the channels are in control of the content. If they change the video in any way I do not have control of what is posted. The videos included are meant to be entertaining. They should be screened by the SLP for appropriateness for each student.
You will need access to You Tube to use these items. Please make sure this site is not blocked by your school before purchase.
Please download the preview to see example of each worksheet. Email me with any questions before you purchase. Thanks!
