Five for {FRIDAY}...October 17th

Hey everyone! I hope y'all are having a wonderful day and enjoying the start of this fall weather! This is my absolute favorite time of year! I {LOVE} fall! I am very excited to be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for {Friday}!
The weeks are flying by this month and this week was amazing! God is continuing to show me His mighty power and grace with the challenges that each day presents! He is so good! 
Ashley and I are so excited for our blogger meet-up next Saturday! Planning it has been a little chaotic, but we are very excited to meet everyone and see it all come together! My amazing mom made these adorable cosmetic bags as giveaways for our guests. Cross your fingers if you're coming! :)

This week I had the opportunity to incorporate this amazing Articulation Toolkit from Karen at The Pedi Speechie into my therapy sessions! This set is very comprehensive and is so practical for "on-the-go" therapy. Karen created the toolkit to target all sounds in all positions of a word at the word, phrase and sentence level. This toolkit is very practical for tracking student progress as well! I attached the pages to a binder ring for easy access.

There was also a few {SPOOKY} things happening in the speech room this week! Students made word lists with their target sounds and then we "dressed" them up a bit! :) They absolutely loved this activity and it provided them with a "take home" list to practice at home for carry-over! You can grab the set with all three spooky creatures in our TPT store! I also helped spread a little sunshine to a few other SLPs in our district! Being a part of the Sunshine committee is one of my favorite things about working at a school!   

Yum!! Did I mention how much I {LOVE} fall!!? :) We had a chili cook-off at school and they were all so delicious!

And the very {BEST} blessing that happening this week is that my husband and I made out last payment on our car making us DEBT FREE!!! We have now completed BABY STEP #2!! We are extremely blessed by all the doors that God has opened for us to help us achieve this goal. Without Him, none of this would have been possible! We are so very excited for the opportunities that God will bring us now that we are in a stronger financial position! 

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!! :)
