Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. ~ Dr. Seuss
This pretty much sums up how I feel about summer. However, we have lots to look forward to.

What's New Around Here

1. I’m back at school! I was dreading the end of summer but I was actually pleasantly surprised by my excitement to make my schedule, see my co-workers, and prepare for all my students!

2. We are almost a family of four! Less than 10 weeks to go. So, if things slow down around here you will know why….we will be in full baby mode.

3. Research review and some great product reviews coming in the next few weeks. Our first review of Pictureka is up and I will be reviewing Virtual Speech Center App, Real Vocabulary, in the next coming weeks!

NOTE: If some links do not work, I apologize. This is very frustrating and unacceptable. I'm working on it! The html version should work. So please click it and ignore the text version. Rest assure...I'm working on it!

Product Review: Pictureka

I found this game at a local garage sale. It was brand new and only $1.00! Exciting! You can also find this game at Amazon for only $12! Not too bad.

If you know me, you know I never use games as they are intended. Instead, I modify them to fit the goals of my students. Below are some ideas that I have already explored and have had a lot of success!

Narrative & Vocabulary Instruction

The article I just read was outstanding for many reasons. If you haven't read it already, please do. It is lengthy but worth it!

I didn't learn anything groundbreaking but I'm pleased that there is some preliminary research now on common practices that we all already do. Click below for my main take away messages and clinical applications
