Use these activities following reading the book, The Biggest Best Snowman by Margery Cuyler. All of these activities are SPECIFIC to the book; They are NOT general graphic organizers!!! Use more literacy-based activities to target students' speech

I created this checklist for my students when I noticed they did not understand the classroom graphic organizer. They responded very well to the BRIEF, clear directions with simple vocabulary. Sometimes, those organizers seem like a vocab test,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! I'm Ashley. I am a speech language pathologist with 10 years of experience. I am currently working in NYC at a K-8th grade school. I previously worked in Early Intervention and special education preschools. I see students from all nine grades, so I am always looking for easy, engaging, no prep activities that I can modify for various grades! My kids love when they can interact with the materials, so I like to make manipulatives that they can move, touch, and feel. Hope you enjoy my materials!

MY TEACHING STYLE

FUN, HANDS-ON, VISUAL, PRACTICAL, CURRICULUM BASED, and RELEVANT therapy that will make a big difference in my student's academic skills in the classroom.
