January 2016 Lesson Plans

It’s almost 2016! A new year! Wow. I wonder what will be in store for me this year?

Here are a couple of areas in which I grew in 2015:

  1. I presented at ASHA!
  2. I read 100 (and counting) books.
  3. I started to get a better grasp on my faith as it has evolved over the years (new seasons of life).
  4. I began running for the first time in my life and ran 3 5Ks.
  5. Flew cross country to visit some of my college BFFs.

Here are some of my goals for 2016:

  1. Run a half-marathon.
  2. Strength train.
  3. Read at least 50 books (I don’t want to stress myself out to reach 100 again!).
  4. Continue to blog, create, and innovate to stretch my brain and my life.

With that in mind, I hope that these January lesson plans make your speech planning easier so you can focus more on YOUR goals!

  1. I have included my “warm up” and homework activities within the lesson plans.
  2. I have added new lesson plans for Articulation (divided by age level).
  3. I have divided my social skills lessons into age levels/functional levels.

  1. Thank you for all your ideas! I am a SLPA starting out in the field and these are wonderful inspirations to work on with my kiddos. May I ask what application are you using to create your activities on? They all look amazing.

  2. Where are the worksheets for the Speech Social Skills Videos you mentioned?

    1. I was sent them directly from the company. I think that if you subscribe to their service you will get them (or just request them).
