Time for a new blog schedule! I am going to do my best to review a TpT product on Tuesdays, show you some therapy ideas on Wednesdays, and offer free/cheap resources on Friday.
We will see if I can keep up!
For my first TpT Tuesday I am reviewing: Super Strategies for Word Retrieval Deficits by the lovely, Figuratively Speeching SLP!
What it includes: -
--A poster describing word retrieval strategies.
--A poster describing visualization strategies.
--A Superhero open-ended game to use with any of the included cards, or any of your materials.
--Two puzzles (have students earn a piece for every two or three correct responses). Glue onto cardboard or poster board then cut apart.
--Blank cards for you to customize.
--Card sets for:
- Associations (36 cards)
- Visualizing/describing (36 cards)
- Phonemic/semantic cues (24 cards)
- Synonyms (18 cards)
- Antonyms (18 cards)
- I love the strategy poster! This would be great to have up on my white board or for each student to read during the activity. For example: can the student visualize, use cues they are given, think of related words or opposites to help them retrieve a word. All good things to remind myself and my student of common strategies.
- Jess of Figuratively Speeching SLP really takes the time to think out each of her activities including activities for her strategies!
- This one is my favorite for visualization. This reminds me of Expanding Expressions program only cuter and with more options for expressing with detail all in her own unique way!!
- The cards after this poster target words that the student then visualizes! I love doing this with my students. We practice first without the strategies to see how little we come up with. Then use the poster as a cue and watch as whole descriptive paragraphs practically form themselves!
- She also includes clue cards where the SLP or student reads the hints and see how long it takes everyone to guess what it is!
- Also really enjoy the antonyms/synonyms! I feel like I can never practice this skills enough with some of my students. Especially placing extra emphasis on the pronunciation of "synonym" is NOT the same as, "cinnamon". ;)
- Also included are puzzles, game board and blank pages. Sweet!
