So I finally got an iPad!! I am so exciting I have been playing with it all weekend! There are so many more features I can utilize rather than my tiny iPod Touch I have been using in the meantime.
As May is coming to a close, I realized I have not done ANYTHING for May is Better Hearing and Speech Month! I decided to create a little word search that could be either placed in my colleagues mailboxes for some entertainment relief or given to my older students that always question me: “Why am I here?!”
I figured this word search could remind students and colleagues about the role of the SLP in the school setting. It can be used to elicit a conversation or reminders of goals for students receiving services. You can attach classroom strategies for teachers to remind them of how to carry over skills learned in therapy room.
A word search?! That's not using my new toy! Well, I thought of that! I emailed myself the file from my computer and “opened with” the pdf-notes app. Now my students could try and find the words and use the pen on the app to write it in. I figured my students can all get a paper version and then we can review our answers by demonstrating where the words are located in the puzzle on the iPad.
As I keep playing with my new toy I will post ideas I have come up with!! Please send me an email or comment if you have ideas that have worked for you! I would love to share your ideas as well!
