Happy Fall!
We are into the second week of October and the kids are working hard.  Just two more weeks until the end of the first quarter.  Wow, time sure is flying!  First quarter progress notes will be coming home with report cards so be sure to check your child's envelope for these.  As always if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.  With the fall season upon us, the speech-language room has been taken over by pumpkins, scarecrows, leaves, and all things fall.  We will be using many fall-related books, activities and games to address our various goals and objectives.  Of course our language topics in Mrs. Shingleton's class will also focus on Fall and Halloween. We will continue to address skills in the areas of:

WH questions
Social Skills
Following Directions
Using longer utternaces
 Some of the books we will be reading are:
The Hungry Witch
Pumpkin, Pumpkin What do you See
Time to Dress Up
The Halloween Brew
Happy Thanksgiving
Five Little Turkeys
Pilgrim, Pilgrim
Five Red Leaves
Leaves Everywhere 
Fall Leaves Fall
It's Pumpkin Time

Our Social Skills Group is also well underway.  Our theme will move from friendship skills to conversation skills.  The lessons we will cover include:
Whole Body Listening
Taking Turns
Eye Contact
Staying on topic

Enjoy this beautiful fall weather.  Before long, we will be talking about cold, snow, and winter!
