Happy November from LiveSpeakLove! As we polish off the last of the Halloween candy, many of us are gearing up for the next big holiday…Thanksgiving! November is typically a blur for me with the ASHA convention, American Education Week and anticipation of the ever popular Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa holiday season. But I always make it a point to very purposefully and carefully appreciate the moment that we have for Thanksgiving. I hope you do, too! To help get you get ready for Thanksgiving in the speech-language therapy room, here are a collection of Thanksgiving activities I made targeting comprehensive skill sets from the CCSS. These activity sets allow for differentiated instruction in individual, small group or whole class settings. Everything you need for this month in one spot…Enjoy!!
What are YOU thankful for this November?

The Anncredible Fight
What is The Anncredible Fight?
The Anncredible Fight is a story that will touch your heart and compel you to act. It is the story of a woman and her fight with an aggressive form of breast cancer. The story of a fighter, whose journey has already inspired so many. She is a single mom of two children, one with significant medical and developmental needs. She is a caregiver, a lifesaver, a warrior and teacher. She is the light in her children’s eyes and the laughter in their hearts. She is a daughter, a niece, a cousin, an aunt. She is a friend. A good friend. She loves with her whole heart, and she helps others before she helps herself.
She is you, she is me; she is all of us that Live, Speak and Love in hopes of making a difference.
She is Ann, and she is my sister.
(You can read more about Ann and her story at Anncredible.)
How Can You Help?
Because Ann is the primary caregiver and support for her special needs son, Eliah, Ann is unable to work and has NO INSURANCE. Please consider helping Ann in one or more of the following ways:
Donate money to help Ann with medical and household bills - any amount will help this single mother who has devoted her life to caring for her children. She has been unable to work and has NO INSURANCE. Donations are being accepted so that Ann can focus on getting healthy without worrying about losing her house or her children.

Wow, I am loving the response to my cute Owl Clipart - seems I am not the only one who thinks the little owls are perfect for the back-to-school season! You can read more about my year-round obsession with owls here or here. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to my love for the little creatures (in real life, I would probably just watch in awe and run for my life if one dared come close to me, hahaha. I am always fearful that my little five pound ball of fluff puppy, Cooper , will be carried away by a hungry fowl. But I DO love them from afar.)
Anyway, here is a repost of my ever popular WHO questions featuring the Owl Clipart I made. Hope you enjoy!!
The end of summer…the beginning of a new season, a brand new school year…anyone else just LOVE that fresh, back-to-school feeling that makes you just want to get ORGANIZED and ready for Fall? Back to School season is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Buses rolling through the streets again, children skipping along with back packs and book orders, with visions of soccer games and Halloween costumes not far behind them. Soon we will be ushering in brisk nights filled with pumpkins, scarecrows, hoodies, colorful leaves and homework at kitchen tables as the dusk falls early around our homes. Such a wonderful time of year, filled with promise and the forgiveness of a new beginning. Maybe I am a little sappy and cliche about the back to school season, but to me, this season is the beginning of what life is really all about. Are you ready to start on the right foot??? LiveSpeakLove is here to help! I’ve just posted one of my favorite back-to-school activity sets! This original set is the perfect activity for the Back to School season as classroom routines are formed and baseline data is collected. Use the materials in this set to introduce Back to School vocabulary and the Back to School theme unit. Print duplicate pages to create memory games, take-home practice pages, learning center activities and more! Target receptive and expressive communication skills with wh questions, sentence formulation activities, describing object attributes…these materials can be adapted to meet ANY articulation or language objective. Aligned with Common Core Speaking and Listening standards for multiple grade levels, this set is GREAT for differentied groups!! Hurry, on sale now in my TPT Store!!
