1) LOVE this post by Mia from Putting Words In Your Mouth about coarticulation! I’d never thought of articulation in this context before, but it’s really true! Every sound we say is affected by other sounds around it. She’s posted a free /th/ list, and I can’t wait for the others to come out!
2) This post by Speech Room News was featured in the ASHA leader this month (how cool is that?), which is how I found it. She writes about an easy idea for artic carryover, and I LOVE it! So simple, easy, and affective! Thanks for sharing!
3) The Speech Place wrote a great post about Colorful Semantics. It’s a technique designed to help easily teach children about syntax and sentence structure. She also has a free download, so check it out!
4) Crazy Speech World shared a resource that she loves to use for teaching vocabulary. I personally have been searching high and low for such a resource, so I was ecstatic to find her post about it! What resources do you use for teaching vocabulary?
5) Crazy Speech World posted another awesome post introducing her new product. It’s a speaking and listening rating scale based on common core standards. What a great way to assess progress for your language students!
6) Allison from Speech Peeps posted a great idea that helps you motivate your students while teaching common core standards at the same time!
7) Last but not least, I posted a new product this past week! It’s a minimal pairs picture cards pack for /f/ vs. /h/. Check out the post here!
Until next time,
