My weekend has been VERY Fall-filled. We went hiking in Shenandoah National Park (sometimes along the Appalachian Trail, accidentally – they really should label the trails and maps better) to see the leaves changing and give Porter some exercise!
Justin adventured to see if he could get
to the top of that rock. Porter was jealous.
Porter and I followed. Porter scaled the back side of the rock in one leap. I guess
all that practice with jumping over the backside of the couch was worth it.
Because I was so “into” Fall this weekend, I figured I’d do a giveaway of my most popular TPT product – my Fall Pragmatics Pack! I will be giving one copy away here, via Rafflecopter, and another away on my Facebook page.
The Pack targets 5 areas of pragmatics with differentiated levels for each area: Problem Solving (3 levels); Asking Questions (2 levels); Making Comments (2 levels); Taking Perspective (2 levels); and Following Social Rules (2 levels). All of the activities in this pack also target topic maintenance, turn taking, sharing opinions appropriately, & manners.
Because I have a slight case of OCD when it comes to organization and neatness (admitting it is the first step, right??), I made each activity have a different Fall theme (i.e. acorns, squirrels, scarecrows, corn, etc) with each level having a different icon/clipart image for each. This makes for easy organization! I put each topic in a gallon zipper storage bag and then the differentiated levels are easy to find by sorting according to image! (More on my organization of my homemade or printed materials later this week!)
My new blog-y friend, Jenn, did a review of this pack a few weeks ago. Check it out here!
And now for the giveaway! To enter via Facebook, go to my Speech Language Pirates’s Facebook page here and follow the directions. Please “like” me while you’re there!

Good luck, all. Thanks for reading!
Perspective taking is always difficult for my students.
At this moment, I'm having the most difficulty with problem solving and asking questions (to peers) with the particular student for whom I made this activity! I find problem solving is so hard to TEACH! There's no “recipe”,
I've been meaning to comment all week! Congrats on the new blog! I added you to my side bar!
One little friend and I have been working on some social reasoning this week! Love working on social skills!
cute! I love the graphics on your product!
Thanks so much for reading, commenting, and the sidebar addition! I really appreciate it!
Social skills and I have a love/hate relationship. I love it when we start but tend to get frustrated when I hit a wall. I handled my frustration by making this differentiated pack! 🙂
Is the rafflecopter working again? And the Facebook link?
Thanks! They are from Scrappin Doodles!
My early elementary students are having a difficult time with following directions and yelling at peers!
I love your activities! They are so creative! My kiddos always have a tough time with topic maintenance. Keep up the great job. If you get a chance check out my blog mishspoken.com.
