Summer Reading

In an effort to encourage summer reading, I created a fun printable for my kids to use to explore some different types of books. I am planning a surprise for any of them who actually fill in the whole sheet or make a good effort. Download Summer Reading Page –> Summer Reading

Stories Online To Support Speech Therapy

This week I am writing about speech therapy. I went in search of Speech Therapy Resources for Malachi and found some great ones. An internet search also yielded some wonderful  iPad Apps For Speech Therapy. Then I gathered all my favorite sites and made a list of Printable Resources For Speech Therapy (and found some excellent new ones too). Finally, yesterday I posted about some great Games And Activities For Speech Therapy.

Printable Resources For Speech Therapy

For two days now I have been talking about speech therapy resources to help our son Malachi. I shared a list of speech therapy products and catalogs and then I shared a list of iPad apps for speech therapy for Tech Tuesday. I love worksheets and printables. I also love taking materials and re-purposing them to create activities that can fill certain needs in our homeschool. I gathered a short list of some of my favorite alphabet and phonics resources: Kizclub Alphabet Avenue DLTK TLS Books Sparkle Box  And then I went searching for some resources specific to speech therapy: Mommy …

iPad Apps For Speech Therapy

Today is Tech Tuesday (I apologize for completely missing last week) and I thought I would talk about our iPad again. Do you have an iPad or other mobile device? Do you use it with your children? Yesterday I spoke about needing to help Malachi with his speech in order to help him learn to read. We have an iPad and I knew that there must be resources we could use for speech therapy on there. Here are some of the Apps that we already have that could be used to help with speech therapy: Drawing Pad ($1.99) Preschool Island ($0.99) Stickers! …

When Speech Hinders Reading – Resources To Check Out

Malachi is our 8 year old. He is still struggling to learn how to read. We have tried all kinds of resources, but I am really starting to think that his speech is part of what is hindering his ability to learn to read. He is starting to pick up on the reading, but he is making very slow progress. Now it is time to start looking into resources that we can use to create a speech therapy program at home. I started researching and brainstorming and I found a list of products to research and some catalog companies to …

Building Character and Love For Reading – Guest Post

Guest Post by Catherine Gillespie I have three children aged 4, nearly 3, and 16 months. Because of their littleness and close age range, things are pretty busy at our house and we needed a preschool core that would allow us to be together rather than requiring me to be apart with my oldest daughter while the other two kids ran amok.  After much reading and careful consideration, I decided that the essence of what we want to instill in our young children at the preschool level is good habits of character and a love of reading. As I began to …

Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere

I have been making some penguin things recently and I have seen people mentioning them on their blogs. I created The Penguin Path back in December and had a lot of fun trying my hand at graphic design. Spesamor Academy mentioned me in her post titled Penguins Part One and shows a picture of her children using the game board. My first download of 2010 was Penguin Learns The Alphabet. My second download of this year was Penguin Learns -at Words. These two downloads were tons of work to make, but loads of fun. Cariann over at Unionvale mentioned me …
