Let's link up!

I stumbled upon a fabulous blog while browsing on Pinterest called  
Even at first click all I could think was, this blog speaks my language!! 
It features 3 things I adore.....Speech therapy, DISNEY, and pinterest!
Don't even get me started on Disney- we will be here ALL day!! 

Laura, over at Oh, How Pintearesting! is hosting an SLP link up so I decided to participate!
Meeting other speech-pathologists from all over the country (via the good ole internet) has been one of the best things about starting this blog so I'm hoping to link up with more! 

If you'd like to link up with us, go to Oh, How Pintearesting! to find out how.  

So here I go...
Here is the graphic Laura posted, with graphics from Scrappin Doodles and Teaching in a Small Town.  The font is from The First grade Parade:
(If you want to participate, now's the time to take a screen shot of it)
and here is my response.....


1) STATE of MIND = Excited!
     There's so much to be excited about! First of all, it's spring break, and the world is my oyster!  I see   
     a day trip to New Orleans in the cards for this week:))  Then to top it off, Friday, {i.e. Good 
     Friday} will bring a big family gathering with some good cajun seafood and even better company  
     (including my parents coming to town for a visit!)  Hey, and let's not forget, the Easter Bunny is on 
     his way! 

2) LOVING....Pic Monkey and this weather!!
     I could have a long list here but right now, at the moment. I'm loving PicMonkey.  If you haven't  
     heard of it or tried it, head over to their site asap.  It's a dream for editing images- so much fun!
     Below is just a drop in the bucket of some of the things you can do.....



     
  
             

     I'm also loving THIS WEATHER!  It will be 100 degrees here at my house before we know it! 
     It's 43 degrees as I type this and the high is only 59 today!! People around here are really
     complaining about this weather, but I am LOVIN' IT!  This girl does NOT like to sweat!

3) PREPPING  my Very Hungry Caterpillar Pack and Spring Would you Rather
    When I return to school it's time to dive into the spring activities- no matter what Mother Nature has
    going on with this Louisiana weather!! It's time for BUGS and one of my favorite books, Eric    
    Carle's, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  I still read the board book version I bought for my son 22 
    years ago (he's graduating from college this May and I'm still clinging to his little board book).  I'm    
    so proud of  the Very Hungry Caterpillar Speech and Language Companion Pack that I created, and 
    I think my students will have lots of fun and learning with it. If you want a peek, you can see it 
    HERE

     I'm also prepping Word to the Wise's Spring Would you Rather cards.  I've printed them and now  
     it's time to laminate them and cut! These are great cards to use for fluency and articulation carryover. 
     I have my students read these hilarious cards and talk about which "choice" they would rather. 
     Sometimes, they don't want to choose one of the choices but I MAKE THEM!! haha it's part of the 
     rules!  The dilemma over having to choose and explain their choice, makes them "forget" about 
     their speech and it shows me what their true, spontaneous speech sounds like. The biggest challenge 
     I have in speech therapy is getting the students to use their best speech EVEN when they're just    
     clowning around and having silly conversations with friends.  When they can do that I know they 
     don't need me anymore (ahhhh, bittersweet).

  1. Very Cool Mia. I'm with you on the weather. I like layers over tank tops and flip flops. I'm thinking of visiting the zoo Thursday if the whether keeps it up.

  4. I use PicMonkey too - love it! Here in Iowa we are LONGING for the high to be 59 degrees! Too much winter around here. New Orleans is definitely on my list of places to visit. How lucky you can take a day trip there. Sounds like fun! Nice to 'meet' you through the linky party :D
