Exit Ticket

Exit Ticket

An 'Exit Ticket' is a strategy that helps students to summarize and reflect upon information learned during a lesson.  

 An 'Exit Ticket' helps students to:

*  review key ideas

* summarize their thinking in a few words or sentences

An 'Exit Ticket' helps educators to:

* evaluate the effectiveness of a teaching process

* create an informal tool to measure a student's understanding of a lesson or a concept

There are several templates and types of  exit tickets that are offered in the internet that you may download.  Also, there is a wonderful website that helps you to create exit tickets digitally.  Educators can register for free, plus there are videos that guide you through the process of creating exit tickets. 

This is the website, The Exit Ticket Student Response System:

Below I have offered an 'exit ticket' I created.  It is mostly visual, due to the needs of some of my students.  Click on the link.

I hope this is useful!

Creating your own ClipArt and Icons with Microsoft PowerPoint


Are you ready to set some attainable goals for yourself in 2014? I sure am.  One of my professional goals is to learn how to create my own clip art.  I've been searching for software that I can learn how to use.  I've found a few options, but it is quite of an investment for me at this time.  During my 'searches' I viewed a youtube video on creating clip art and icons with Microsoft PowerPoint.  Personally, this is a wonderful option for me, as PowerPoint is accessible, affordable ( it's part of my computer programs anyway ) and best of all I know how to use it!  I am sharing the video with you!   I can't wait to try it!   :)    Enjoy!

I hope some of you find this useful and that you will be able to reach your personal and professional goals in 2014!

Happy New Year,

Being Compassionate

I need a little compassion in my life.  Lately, not sure why, I've experienced some very disappointing encounters with people.  The lack of empathy and compassion demonstrated have left me astonished.  It seems more prevalent today, to abstain from showing kindness, understanding, patience and benevolence towards people.  I consider how this will effect the behavior of our children.   As adults, if we lack the skill to put ourselves in another person's place/situation, we will not be able to teach and expect our children to demonstrate empathy towards others.

This experience has really made me think.  How can I teach children the concept of having compassion and empathy?

  My pathway to this journey may take a while, but I've started with a very simple graphic organizer.  I thought about various terms to use during teaching this concept, and narrowed it down to four terms that young children can grasp quickly.

Four terms to describe compassion

1) kindness

2) patience

3) understanding

4) helpful

As educators/clinicians, we have a unique opportunity to teach skills which may be lagging.  My hope is that we can all be responsible enough to begin to teach important character traits that are necessary to sustain intimate relationships and friendships.  At least, I can turn a dismal experience into a lesson to enrich the lives of children.

I hope you all can use this in your classrooms or therapeutic settings.

Honoring our Veterans

Veteran's day is near and dear to my heart.  My dad served in the Vietnam War and was also part of the national guard after the war.  He continued honoring his country most of his life.  I remember many weekends and summers that my dad would go to serve and protect our country, the United States of America. 
He was so very proud to be part of the US Military and took his role, of course, very seriously.  I learned to honor, and love this country because of my father.  He was and still is the epitome of what God, family and country represents.  My dad still honors this country.  Every Veteran's Day and Memorial Day, he flies the American Flag in front of his house with great pride and joy.  Others from his neighborhood took note and began to honor veteran's in the same format.  If you walk down his block, you'll see many flags displayed in front of homes.
I would like to take some time to honor all our veteran's both living and dead.  I cannot demonstrate all the appreciation and gratitude I have for all who have served our country.  I can however, do what I do best and create an activity, so the next generation can understand how important our military personnel are to this country.
I created a small booklet about Veteran's Day.  It's very simple and to the point.  If you will like to use it for your students or children, please feel free to download the booklet.  Just click on the link.
On November 11th, remember to say thank you to a veteran.  They deserve it!
Enjoy the activity!

Vocabulary Development... Read, Read, Read; Talk, Talk, Talk


The understanding of the spoken and written word are crucial in your child’s development of language.  It is estimated that children need to acquire approximately 3,000 words each year to give them an academic edge. That is an astounding amount of words!   
So how do you proceed to help your child acquire new vocabulary?  The most current research suggests that reading to your child everyday and speaking with your child is key for the acquisition of new words.            
When you read with your child, discuss the characters, setting, plot and resolution of the story.  Apply the moral of the story to real-life experiences and current events.  As you speak with your child, use a rich,vibrant and full vocabulary to describe events, people and things.  
Reading helps both parent and child to learn new vocabularies and using  these words will help your child academically and socially.  For those reasons,  mastering the ability to effectively communicate leads to SUCCESS

Have fun learning,

Martina Finds a Shiny Coin: A Book Review

Martina Finds a Shiny Coin
Author:  Yadhira Gonzalez-Taylor
Illustrator: Alba Escayo
Book Review by:  Beverly Gonzalez

Martina Finds a Shiny Coin is a heart-felt children's book about love and acceptance.  It is an adaptation of a Puerto Rican folktale, La Cucarachita Martina also known as Martina y Perez.  The main character of the story is a very talented and gifted cockroach-yes a cockroach- whose journey to find beauty, love, and self-acceptance begins with finding a shiny coin. This book is beautifully illustrated, the drawings are rich in color and depicts a detailed portrait of a very real town in Puerto Rico.  The center theme of this book authentically teaches any child or adult that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder, to look beyond the surface of the skin and embrace the values, gifts, talents and qualities that make individuals unique.  

As I read this book to my daughter, it  prompted wholehearted conversations about self-esteem.  I’m sure that reading this book to your own children or students will also begin in depth discussions.  As we all know, many of our students struggle with self-acceptance or may struggle with accepting others’ differences and opinions.  This book is an excellent platform to gauge inquiry about tolerance, self-esteem, bullying and basic traits that develop a strong moral character.  

On September 9, 2013;  I will be having a huge giveaway.  Three lucky entrants will win an autographed copy of Martina Finds a Shiny Coin.  You will be able to enter on September 9, 2013. The giveaway will end on September 16, 2013.     Please enter for a chance to win!

Multi-Syllabic Words

Hello Again,

It's been a while.  The year is coming to an end and at this time of year, things get very busy.  I just wanted to let you all know, that I will be posting over the summer. However, it will not be as frequent.  I'll be working on some activities and searching for more resources.  When I find interesting tidbits, I'll surely pass it on to you folks.  Also, if I finish a project over the summer, I'll post a link with a description.

This year and for a good portion of the next school year, I will be working with my groups on recognizing and articulating multi-syllabic words. This is very challenging for my students because of their language and learning based disabilities. Today, I want to share with all of you a website that I found to be very helpful to generate ideas for developing lessons that focus on this topic. The Florida Center for Reading Research is one resource that in my opinion is excellent!  If you are looking for ways to teach vocabulary, like multi-syllabic words, take a look at this site.  It has lesson plans, activities and games that help students to acquire reading and comprehension skills.  At the same time, it helps educators  and parents by breaking down reading into fun lessons by grade, by sharing research based techniques and by sharing great ideas. I hope you find it helpful.

Here is the web address for The Florida Center for Reading Research:

If you want access to the multi-syllabic lesson from The Florida Center for Reading Research, click on the link.        


I hope you all have a fun and safe summer!  Make sure to drop by and read my posts over the summer. One is a review of a beautiful book one of my friends has written-I don't want you to miss out on that one, especially if you are looking to read multi-cultural books to your students or your children!

I hope you all have a fun and safe summer!

Survey of Language Skills

Collecting Language Data


I took some time to create a 'live survey form' on google docs.  I use this format to send to my students' teachers so I can compile data and get an overall sense of how my students are doing in their classroom setting.  I usually work with my kiddos in a small group setting and sometimes I need a different perspective of how they are generalizing skills.  As a result I have a more complete picture of their performance during small group and larger group settings.  

Use the 'live form' to send to your respondents and make sure to make it your own by copying to your own files.  Request for editing access and you can easily edit and add information as needed.  

Click on the link below for access to this survey.

Hope you can use this!

Grandma's Kitchen

A Writing and Description Activity

Who doesn't love grandma's kitchen?  Imagine all the warmth you felt as you were growing up, savoring grandma's meals and basking in the sweet aroma of her kitchen.  As I recall my childhood, I can still picture my grandmother cooking up some amazing meals and telling me step by step how I could prepare it for my own family one day. 

As I was reflecting on those memories, I thought about how I can incorporate those associations to an activity for my students. Why do I always go back to my students and their learning?  :)  Anyway,  if I had such fond memories of her kitchen, I was sure my students also had similar experiences.  It could be loads of fun writing and speaking about a creative grandma story.

What I generated was an activity incorporating writing and verbal skills so your kiddos can create an original story about "Grandma's Kitchen".  I scaffolded the writing from simple to more challenging tasks.  In the end, students learn to 'break down' the writing process into manageable steps and also learn various transitional words to make their piece flow.

Two Amazing Books to Teach Character, Vocabulary and Comprehension

Hello All,

I hope you were able to take advantage of all the links posted from all creative and talented teachers that contributed to my first "link party"! Thank you for sharing your work with us!  In the near future, I will host another "link party".  Next time it will be a different theme.

These past few weeks, I've been focusing on Character Education lessons.  Now since I work with special needs and language impaired children my character lessons target vocabulary and comprehension skills.  Last week, I made activities based on the book, My Friend and I by Lisa Jahn-Clough.  This week my lesson began with another book by the same author, Alicia Has a Bad Day.

I love these two books, as I was able to make interesting and motivating activities to go along with the book.   I was very pleased because I read to books out loud for my kiddos and it kept their attention.  The simple short sentences coupled with the vivid illustrations, captivated my students and inspired me to create fun lessons.
This book helped my students with their social skills

Besides comprehension and vocabulary, my students were able to practice social skills.  They gave each other compliments and stated why they appreciate each other.
The illustrations captured my students' attention

If you will like the activity I produced for my students, CLICK HERE.

Also, I constructed other activities for the book, Alicia Has a Bad Day.  

These activities are available at my TpT store.  CLICK HERE

Have fun,

Building Oral Language

Building Oral Language
  Building oral language is a central component with developing reading and writing skills in children.  Research in this area has indicated that there is a strong correlation with oral language, reading, writing and also thinking.
  Let’s take a look at four areas that make up oral language and a very simple description for each:
·         Phonological Development:   This includes identifying, locating and manipulating sounds.  The structure of sounds include: syllables, onsets and rimes and phonemes.
·         Semantics:  The meaning or relationship of meanings of a sign/symbol or words.
·         Syntax:  Function and grammar of language/words.
·         Pragmatics:  The social language that involves learning rules of acceptable behavior and interaction with others.
Reading, writing and thinking require all four areas.  Therefore, the development of oral language skills is crucial to work on during all grade levels.
Activities that enhance oral language development
During the early school years there are many activities that can promote oral language.  These are just a few of many.
·         Songs
·         Games
·         Dramatization of Poetry
·         Show and Tell
·         Riddles and Jokes
To get you started with developing oral language skills in children, click on the link and grab a free game.  It’s useful and loads of fun!

Stay tuned for a new unit on oral language that I will be adding to my TpT store.  It'll be out by the end of the week!

Listening is Fundamental

Hi All,

     It's been a little while since my last post.  It gets really busy during this time of year for me.  For this post I'd like to focus on listening skills.

      Developing listening skills in early childhood is very important.  Listening is a skill needed to acquire language and reading skills.  For some children, listening becomes a bit challenging when they enter school.  Think about your early years in school.  How many directions did your teacher give throughout the day?

       Listening is vital to help with gaining new information and also improving interpersonal relationships with others.  To help your child with increasing listening skills you can do very simple tasks with them.

1. Play a directions game- Hide some toys around the house and describe where the toys are located. Make sure to tell your child to "Listen Carefully",

2.  Read rhymes to your child.  Ask your child to say a word that rhymes with another.

3.  Make noise-  Tell your child to close their eyes.  Pick up objects with familiar sounds and make the sound with the object.  Have your child guess the object that corresponds with the child.

      Listening is a fundamental skill that lasts for a lifetime.

Have fun learning,

Express Yourself!

Increasing Conversational Skills


I just finished working on a project which I am offering at my TpT store.  I've been thinking about various ways to improve my students' conversational skills, so I developed this activity/game, that will help them to do just that.

With this activity you can incorporate a few of the speaking and listening common core standards.

Common Core Standards Addressed:

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.3.1b
  • Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., gaining the floor in respectful ways, listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts under discussion).
  • and link their comments to the remarks of others.

How to use this activity:
Recommended for a small group, 2-4 students.
Establish rules for having a conversation (included in packet)
Cut out and laminate cards.  Sort cards into categories (personal/school questions, entertainment questions, food questions, random questions)
Teacher/SLP chooses a category and chooses a student who will answer a question from that specific pile.(personal/school questions, entertainment questions...)  Other student(s) should write questions or comments and ask the question or make the comment written.  Students may use terms provided in this packet that is included  (on iPods).  It can be taped on the working table or wall as a visual cue.
Another student answers a question from one of the categories and the same procedure is followed.  
There are ten questions for each category.
Student Self-Evaluation (My Conversation Inventory) and a Teacher/SLP rubric are included.

Students are provided with phrases to generate comments

I hope you find it useful!
