Who/What/Where/When/Why/How in the world...

Happy Halloween SLPeeps!  "I love when Halloween is on a Wednesday"... said NO person who works with or has children EVER!  I hope you're surviving this crazy week!

We've been having a blast with the "I Mustache You a Question" material I posted last week.  However, it really helps me to see what students are still struggling with when it comes to answering and formulating questions.  Some of my younger grades that are working on answering just have zero idea what the question is asking.  My upper grades and children with pragmatic language difficulties are having a hard time knowing how to start a question and what form it should have.  They aren't sure what to put into the question.  We spent some time brainstorming and talking about what each type of question is and what it is asking and some examples of each type.  As an addition, I created some quick little reminder posters that I've placed on the board next to my therapy table as a reference in times of utter DISTRESS!

You can grab this document of posters free here.  It's nothing fancy but it can be a helpful resource for kiddos. (This link has been fixed)

Enjoy Halloween!  I'm so ready for November!!!

    1. That sounds like a problem with your browser (I have more luck in firefox than explorer for example) or with your Adobe reader. It's a PDF file so you will need the necessary program to open and print that from TPT. I'd try Firefox browser as well to see if that helps. Shoot me an e-mail at sublimespeech@gmail.com if you still are unable to resolve it! Thanks!
