Hello blog world! My name is Ashley and I am a second year Speech-Language Pathologist for kids of all ages. I feel as if I have some creative ideas to share with parents and fellow SLPs. That's what has sparked this little blog! I have a greater respect for all of you veteran bloggers because the design aspect is difficult! Be patient with my ever-changing blog design because it is far from complete : )
For Post #1, I would like to share my new reward system that the kids are LOVING. One recent quote, "I never want to graduate speech with prizes like this!" lol When the kids do something great, such as show up on time or have a super productive session, they get to roll the dice and color in that number of coins on the Treasure Map (linked here). The treasure map is taped to the front of each student's file. When they reach the "X" on the map, they get to pick some "loot" from the treasure chest ($15 from Michaels). The "loot" consists of bouncy balls, sticky hands, etc. from Oriental Trading Company and some prizes from Target dollar spot. I also made a coordinating bulletin board which turned out super cute!
Talk it up!
