Guest Post from Crazy Speech World- Easy Carry-Over Speech Activity for Summer!!

This week, I have another, fantastic guest blogger, Jenn from Crazy Speech World, who is popping in to share a fun and functional summer activity for speech and language carryover!  You are going to LOVE this activity because it is PERFECT for kids of all ages and abilities!  I have been a huge fan of Jenn's for some time and many of my clients have enjoyed her story book lessons for the famous, Old Lady and adorable Bear!  Take a look at what she designed for FREE for speech2me followers!  Be sure to stop by and visit her at Crazy Speech World and take a look at her other crafty activities!

I often try to find the easiest ways for parents to work on speech goals, especially when it comes to summer practice.  Being a parent, I know that sometimes...it's hard to find the time!   So when I can come up with suggestions that are already a part of a child's routine, I know that will make life easier.  And who doesn't love that?  So...what are kids doing (or should be doing!) all summer already?  READING!  And since they are reading, I figure that is a perfect way to work on speech at the same time...and then I thought...SPEECH-Marks!
Speech-Marks are bookmarks that can be printed and used to record words in a story that have the student's target sound(s).  There are 10 blank spaces on each one, so as they are reading they can write down words they find with their sound.  Once they fill it up, they can drill the sounds, use them in a sentence, retell the story, or create their own story!  You can also use it for language goals...parts of speech, vocabulary, anything!
I included color, as well as black and white, making it easy for you OR parents to print and cut.  You could also laminate them for multiple uses, if you wanted.  

I created this freebie set just for you guys, you can download it HERE

Jenn is a school SLP in Florida, working with children PK to 8th grade, and the author of the blog Crazy Speech World.  You can also follow her on FacebookTwitterPinterest, and TPT.
