Just a wee bit o’fun in our speech room to share with you.  We read the book The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day. In the book the kids make traps to try to catch a leprechaun. So we decided we needed to make some too.

I brought in items from my recycling bin at home and the students decided what to use to create their own traps. Here are the results…

They added pennies to lure the leprechaun to the trap. Now we will wait to see what happens!

This is the sign posted by the traps. Leprechaun Traps

Of course there were lots of IEP goals worked on along side the trap making.

1. Following directions

2. Problem solving

3. Comparing/Contrasting traps with those in the book

4. Vocabulary

5. Sequencing

6. Predictions

Now can you add your own twists?  I know we will!

This is not only the month for basketball but also for a March Madness contest for Yapp Guru.

What is Yapp Guru? It is a group of “experts” who review apps to help others get a better idea if an app is a good fit for your needs. So this month as we will be adding more app reviews to help you all out and bonus some of us “experts” might even win a prize.

What is Yapp Guru? It’s an online site that we’d like you to join for free. Once you have signed up you have access to many app reviews and the ability to vote for your favorite apps.

I choose apps to review that I use in therapy sessions and meet the needs of my students. I love finding some non-traditional apps that lets me add a twist. You may not see a lot of negative reviews from me as I tend to contact the developer first about any concerns. I found this to be much more beneficial than posting an issue about on app on iTunes. I will be honest about the apps I do review on Yapp Guru. But I often tell others to read reviews on Yapp Guru, look at description of the app and view a video about the app in use. This is the best way to gather information to help you decide if the app is a fit for you and your wallet. You can find my reviews here: Cindy Meester’s App Reviews.

So come join the March Madness fun at Yapp Guru. Be sure to check out all the app experts reviews. There are 25 SLPs and 1 OT as of today trying to be the best resource we can for you!

So line up your shot mouse and dribble click on Yapp Guru and join for free. It’s a win win and you won’t even break a sweat.

 

I’d love to hear about the twists you add to apps we have reviewed.
