A 10,000 Page view Celebration!

It's the last week of virtual school for me which requires a virtual party!

First let's step back in the time machine to January 1, 2013 when I published this post:  Goal accomplished: 500 page views!  Since then this blog has been viewed: 9, 912 times.  That number is amazing to me.

Here's another exciting number: 96 published posts.  My plan is to have a blog post every day this week so that I can surpass 100 blog posts on the same week I'm celebrating 10,000 page views.   And I'm giving away a 10.00 gift card to Teacher's Pay Teachers.  Now I'm just trying to figure out what I can do that I can get 1,000 of during this week to make things nice and even.  Speaking of even, does anyone else end up eating half a pan of bars when they try to just "even up the rows?"  Maybe it will be 1,000 off topic remarks.  

In keeping with the 10's theme, I'm listing my top 10 favorite blog posts.  (This is kind of like when young pop stars write a biography-it's probably too early for a "best of" album-but 5 didn't fit with my number theme.)  Here they are in no particular order:

1.  Sentence Building Obstacle Course
















2.  Multiple Meaning Word Resource Review 

3.  Perspective Taking Freebie


4.  Teaching Children to communicate when they are hurt.  with FREEBIE!

5.  Prefix Blocks



6. My first lazy speech therapy hints post

7.  Praxis and Ideation
















8.  Autism: Fill in the Blanks.

9.  Teaching Imitation

10.  The Dumpster story.  I LOVE a good embarrassing story.  


Wow, it was hard to find 10.  I'm going to have to step up my game!  Stay tuned this week for a post on video modeling, a FREEBIE, an embarrassing story, and something that I haven't thought of yet.  (I'm open for suggestions...)

In the meantime, enter to win a TPT gift card!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Congrats! I like to read about techniques and strategies that other SLP's use.

Jennifer Bell said...

I always like posts about how to adapt ordinary items and games for use in therapy. App reviews are very helpful too - I don't always use them for myself, but often pass the information on to other SLPs and parents!

I like to hear about therapy ideas:)

Julie Graham said...

I am not sure I have a favorite, but I do like reading blogs that have a personal tone or personality of the blogger.

Susan said...

Congrats! I like to read about how games are used during therapy and hoe SLP's organize their materials.

Carly said...

I am always looking for new ideas and activities to do with my students. Any crafts or games. I also like tips and tricks.

I follow soo many great SLP blogs (and yours is definitely at the top!). As a new SLP, I love to learn about new approaches to concepts that my kids just aren't getting, as well as tricks for those lazy/OMG-I-have-a-million-IEPs-due-this-week-and-no-time-for-planning! days.

Shannon L. said...

I love hearing about new TpT products and fun therapy ideas!

Abigail Howard said...

I love to hear about different therapy activities and the way other SLPs data collect!

Heather said...

Activities!

Shannon Cole said...

It's so helpful to hear about other's successes and even failures that allow us to be a community as we all "live" on our own little islands.

Joanne Shank said...

I love seeing all of the great therapy ideas and activities. We SLPs are a creative bunch! :) Congrats on the page views!

Amy Carlton said...

I love all of therapy ideas, including how to incorporate books into therapy.

Stephanie said...

I love books used in therapy

Sharon Blievernicht said...

I love hearing how slps use things differently than the way they were originally intended to be used- such as games, tpt purchases, etc.

Jessica Schulman said...

I love hearing how therapists use everyday items in their speech sessions, and I love your blog especially, since your personality comes out in your writing!

Any therapy idea/technique!

Nicola said...

You inspire me to be a better clinician. I love reading all your blogs so many ideas that encourage me to reflect on my practice and improve.

Jayne Watkin said...

I love hearing about what others are doing in therapy. Also I love when we can commiserate or share funny stories/comments with one another.

BA said...

I love posts about books too, but I must say I love a good laugh and your story about the dumpster made me laugh out loud!

Courtneyyy said...

What great posts! Glad they're all here so I can check out the ones I missed!
