Do you need to make the most of your budget for therapy materials? Yep, we all do. You are lucky if you have a few dollars allotted to you by your employer. Many of us buy materials out of pocket, or make our own. I do both, but there is just not enough time to make it all!
Fortunately, your budget can get a boost on August 19th- because Teachers pay Teachers has announced a back to school boost sale: More Love for Back to School. Most sellers join in, that means you will find most of your favorite items at 28% off! Be sure you use the special code for your full discount; MORE15

Here are some of top picks from Speech Sprouts:
When I create a packet, I think about versatility. Will I be able to use it with most of my students and a variety of targets? When I grab Associations in the Doghouse, I am good to go for the majority of my day!
Little ones find the “go-togethers” and match the cards. My older students describe how the two cards are associated. There is a puzzle card (you can see it in the photo) to help students explain how the two cards “fit” together. This really helps my visual learners. Many of my students have a hard time including the many elements of a description, so I included a cue card to help them with category, function and attributes. An open-ended board game featuring a naughty little dog is fun for all my kiddos!
I love activities to go with wonderful children’s literature, so I created Giraffes Can’t Dance Speech Therapy Book Companion. The adorable book Giraffes Can’t Dance is by Andreae Giles (Not included).
In the story, a giraffe feels lonely and left out because he is different and can’t dance well like the other jungle animals. Then he learns that he really can do a great job, he just had to do things his own way. This packet includes activities for a range of ages: from Pre- to 3rd grade.
Some of my favorites are “Whose Feet?” My littles match the animal feet to the bodies and answer “Who?” questions. I have also included plenty of activities for other targets: Rhyming, articulation, wh? and yes/no questions, comprehension and sequencing.
My kids love monsters. This monstrous bundle focuses on Pre-K to 2nd grade. It includes a prepositions game, interactive story, and plenty of articulation and language activities.
