I didn’t expect to be doing this again but here I am wrapping up another school year. After announcing retirement last year, I ended up substituting for SLPs on personal and medical leave in 2 middle schools, and 2 elementary schools. It kept me quite busy and in semi-retirement. I did enjoy the reduced schedule.
Our year ends later than most areas of the United States. We also had another half week added because of our more than usual snow days. I think the students and I are ready to see summer vacation arrive.
I know this is too late for most of you, but I like to do a special activity for the last days of therapy. I found Summer Bingo Boards among my downloads from last summer. I decided Loop Cereal Bingo would be a good vocabulary and conversation building activity to wrap up the year. The bingo boards were not marked with any identifying information and I have no idea where they came from. They appear to be a free download from some place but I can’t find the address. If you are the creator I would love to give credit so please let me know. I am making them a free download so people can get them here but if there is a better url address I will switch it out. They are black and white so they won’t use up the color ink. Just click on the button.
There are 9 boards using summer pictures to illustrate summer vocabulary items. I am printing mine out on regular computer paper so each child can have his/her own sheet. That way loop cereal can be placed on them for markers and each child will have a fresh sheet of paper. Students can eat the cereal when they get a BINGO.
