Color me stunned to just discover also that my own blog is on the short list for “Top Individual Blog.” But let me go ahead and burst my own bubble by sharing that this “short list” contains 53 nominees, and my blog is numero 36. Is that a short list? Yep, takes a little of the the shine right off of it, doesn’t it? No matter though, I’m still honored to reside on the list at all. and I will sport my badge PROUDLY. It should already be there! Not only that, but eight of the twenty librarian nominees are true face-to-face friends. Yay for my friends and all school librarians everywhere! Feeling so inspired by the nominees this year. I know there are those who poo-poo such lists, but to me THIS is the one that means more, as it is peer reviewed, selected, and voted upon. But I am HAPPIEST to see the ones I nominated make their respective “short lists.” I encourage you to visit and vote. I will embed the voting for my own nomination, though, to enable voters an easier path to vote. Happy voting everyone! And congrats to all the nominees who made their shortlists.

Don't worry...it's temporary. This last month has been pretty busy and the last few weeks I've been focusing on doing my 1) job - lots of testing and paperwork/meetings this month, 2) preparing my presentation to the Oklahoma Speech Hearing Association's annual conference, and 3) some local presentation/teaching opportunities.
These sentence builder activities are great for infant pupils as well as pupils with learning difficulties or special educational needs. They help to develop vocabulary, sentence structure and left to right orientation. They feature "The baby needs a ____" sentences. All pages should be laminated; the words on pages 7-9 should then be cut out.
I also like to tie our projects into the curriculum. Since we are studying human and natural characteristics within our community, I'm going to pre-cut 8" circles to perfectly fit in the plate. The students will illustrate a landscape of their choice to demonstrate their understanding of our community characteristics.
3 years and 31 days ago, I made a decision that I swore I would never make. I dropped my firstborn son off at a state run program in a mental hospital, admitting to him and to the world that our family was no longer the best place for him, and that someone else was better equipped to meet his needs than my wife and I.
The American Speech and Hearing Association acknowledges that I've been blogging since before it was even cool (five years and counting!) I created one of the first Speech Therapy blogs... just me and the dinosaurs banging rocks in Morse code to create informative, emotional, humorous, and/or otherwise ridiculous posts.
Latest Post Reading blogs is now my main mode of interacting with ideas about teaching and school leadership. It's been an incredible year in my view.
