It's National Margarita Day! Are you celebrating later tonight? Kansas City has been covered in ice this week, so I'm dreaming of margarita sipping on a warm, breezy patio! I personally dig a classic marg but have heard that a raspberry lime-a-rita with Fresca is supposed to be really good 🤔What about you? Lime? Strawberry? 🍓Peach? 🍊Something different altogether? . PS - why is there no margarita emoji?! Or has it come in one of those iOS updates I haven't downloaded for a year? 😬😂 #nationalmargaritaday
I conveniently had an “ice” day off work today to hang out with my dogs on National Love Your Pet Day (thanks, Mother Nature! 😘) You might be familiar with Molly and Bruce.. They're the stars of Molly’s Day Out and Bruce’s Day at the Farm books! 🐶📖 . Yesterday, I had breakfast with a friend and as we were checking out, I told her that it was Bruce’s birthday 🎉 and that he was turning 3. The cashier started talking to us about how kids are so smart these days with technology, and other things that insinuated that she thought Bruce was my child. I didn’t correct her. #theyrebasicallymychildren 😂 . How about you? Are you a dog mom? 🐶 Cat mom? 🐱Tell me something about your fur babies! #nationalloveyourpetday
COMMUNITY HELPERS! Do your kids struggle with community helper-related vocabulary and WH questions as much as mine do every year?! * This book we read features a mail carrier as one of the jobs, and the mail carrier appears in several other scenes in the book, too, delivering mail to various people/places. So, we pretended to be mail carriers, too, picking an envelope, answering the WH question, and delivering it to the mailbox - kids love sticking things inside this little mailbox! * If you have the space and multiple mailboxes/containers, you can incorporate a little movement by delivering the letters to different mailboxes around the room rather than sitting at the table!
How great is this idea from @the_type_b_slp?! Cut up lots of artic pictures and organize them by sound, so you can just grab and go when you have a craft you want to do! I've been meaning to do something like this for years, but I was just going to stick them in baggies or envelopes... I love the idea of using these colored photo boxes WAY more! The prettier the storage, the more likely I am to use it! 😂 Abby is one to follow because of her cute therapy ideas, funny quotes, and swoonworthy hand lettering skills! Check her out! #slpfollowfriday
We're sticking with Valentine's Day the rest of the week! In class today, we read Happy Valentine's Day, Curious George! They decorate cookies in the book, so I grabbed my cookies (a #targetdollarspot purchase), and attached the monkey from @speechtimefun 's Feed the Monkey activity to a box. I gave them a description of a cookie and they had to find the right one to feed the monkey. It was also great for working on early syllable shapes with words like more eat in muh-key and cookie for one of my little guys! ❤️❤️❤️
Just a little glimpse into the no prep/low prep Spring artic and language activities that are part of a new bundle you can grab in the TpT sale to get ready for the craziest time of the year! (But at least warm weather is coming? 🤷♀️)

🐧P E N G U I N TIME!🐧 It's cold and snowy here in Kansas City with 🤞 more snow on the way 🤞, so a perfect time to bring out the Arctic animal unit and these adorable penguins! - It brings me SO. MUCH. HAPPINESS. to read your amazing feedback and messages about my no prep units and how they've helped you get through crazy days/weeks.
