I realize that it is almost May already and I am very late in getting these out… but I feel like I have some good excuses!
The following are my “please feel sorry for me” excuses:
- 36 meetings/IEPs/conferences and 2 half-day Task Force meetings so far this month (and more to come this week).
- Soccer games, violin lessons, Tae Kwon Do driving.
- Started selling Jamberry nails and threw my first online party (email me for more info–hint hint!).
- Very difficult dynamic shift at home as my husband made public the thoughts that had been heavy on his heart for a long time regarding his former faith.
- The contractor working on our bathroom said it needed to be painted THIS weekend. I could pay him an exorbitant amount of money, or do it myself. So… I spent the weekend painting!
- Created a new freebie for Mother’s Day that I wanted to get done before making my lesson plans. I am an adoptive parent, however, and am very aware that many children are not living with their mothers. So I tried to create an activity that was sensitive and could be used to describe ANY female caretaker (and even male caretaker if you change the pronoun).

This freebie contains 3 levels of language complexity so it is useful for students K-5th (approx).
And… here are my lesson plans for May.
As always, these are divided into levels:
Language Level 1 (approx K-1st grades)
Language Level 2 (approx 2nd-3rd grades)
Language Level 3 (approx 4th-5th grades)
PreK (I will actually be using these with my high/verbal life skills students)
Social Language (all grades)
Not on my lesson plans, but these are the items I’ll be using all month!
Speech Club Spring: Daily articulation practice for older students working on /r/, /s,z/, and /th/. Tons of language learning fun, and carryover involved in these no-prep worksheets.
Mini Speech Club Spring: 8 articulation activities for each month with sound cards to go with almost all of your younger students’ needs.
Hope these are helpful!
