I’ve been extremely busy around these parts! Not only is May the biggest IEP month of the year (I think I’ve had 30 so far), but we also put an offer on a home two weeks ago.
We are having some difficulties with the negotiating process and I’m not sure yet if the home is “juuuuuust right” for us. I guess we’ll have to wait, pray, and see.
On a speechy front, I’ve created two Goldilocks units recently that I’m quite proud of. The first one is centered around a book that my children brought home from their school library a few months ago, Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs (by Mo Willems, the awesome author of Knuffle Bunny and the Pidgeon books).
I swear, this is probably my favorite children’s book of the year. It is hilarious! Full of great sarcasm and humor for adults (which still kid appropriate). Because it has relatively few words, it can easily be read and discussed in one speech session. But there is enough vocabulary, non-literal language, and humor to last for an entire month of therapy (I’m sure because I’m doing it right now!).
