Look at my Lessons 3/22/15

Hi Friends! 
First of all, thank you to everyone who took part in our blog hop! It was a great success and I'm so glad all my readers were able to snag such amazing FREE materials! Yay!!!

So, it's Sunday and that means it's time for another "Look at my Lessons" post! I'm sorry I didn't post one of these last week. I had all the blog hop craziness going on and I've been sick since last Monday, so I've been a little off track. I'm still sick and crossing my fingers that this cough and sore throat goes away ASAP…. I'm in a wedding on Friday! 

Here's a "Look at my Lessons" for the week! 
DISCLAIMER: I know everyone has caseloads made up of varying ages and abilities… so my lesson plans may not apply to everyone. However, I often use open-ended reinforcement activities and those can be utilized for many different therapy groups. I should caution that I've listed mainly the materials I'm going to use- I don't include behavioral strategies, prompting and modifications in my lesson plans… they are VERY general. But, they give me place to start when it comes to therapy for the week!

I have some photos and a list below of my lesson plan activities and where you can get them! :)

Jumping Jack game

I just got this game a couple months ago at Target! It's super cute and very similar to Pop-Up-Pirate! I use it as an open-ended reinforcer during therapy. It lends itself perfectly to my Easter theme this week and I already know that my kiddos LOVE it! If you're interested, you can get it on Amazon!

Egg Hunt
Check this item out in my TpT Store! Use as an open-ended reinforcement for any activity! The students can earn one Easter egg for each task you ask them to complete (e.g. articulation cards, language cards, math facts, sight words, etc). The students will pile the Easter eggs on their Easter basket mat as they complete the tasks.

Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure 

I purchased this book a week or so ago at Target, but you can also get it on Amazon. It's a super cute book about Pete having to fill-in for the Easter bunny on Easter morning. I loved it so much that I made a book companion for it!

Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure Book Companion
My book companion targets "WH" questions (basic & advanced), sequencing, comparing & contrasting and includes open-ended games and activities! If you have the Pete the Cat:Big Easter Adventure book, you've got to check out the companion pack in my TpT store! :)

Easter Egg Sequencing
I found this cute freebie by The Deane's List when I was searching TpT for more Easter language activities for  my kiddos! I'm looking forward to using this!

Easter Expected vs. Unexpected

 This is a great activity with my social skills groups! I use these cards to target identification of Expected & Unexpected behaviors. Sometimes, depending on the attention level of my kiddos, I use this with some sort of simple point system or reinforcer as they respond to each card.

Spring Articulation Carryover Paragraphs

My carryover paragraphs have been a total go-to therapy material these days! This packet targets the carryover of later developing sounds ( S, Z, R and "TH") and has a spring time theme. This is designed for upper elementary aged students who are in the carryover phase with their articulation targets. I love using these- it's such a quick and fun way to sneak in numerous productions of target sounds!

Throughout my work week, I often post pictures of what I'm doing in therapy on Instagram! It's my favorite way to share, so be sure to check it out!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!!
