Felice at the Dabbling Speechie is hosting a take the TPT plunge linky party. It's a post to encourage people who may have picked up a lot of freebies on Teachers Pay Teachers or Teacher's notebook to take the plunge by purchasing a full product.
I started looking at TPT when I was doing virtual therapy-it was so easy to go and pick up some materials to use for my sessions. I'll admit that it took me a little while to actually purchase a product. But once I did, I was hooked. I purchased my first product in April 2012. Since then, I've purchased 118 more products.
Here's how the linky works. Each blogger is going to write about 2 products that they've purchased that they use frequently. Then they will also post about one of their best sellers. This way, you get a lot of recommendations for tried and true products.
Two of my favorite purchases:
1. WH Questions with visual choices by Teach Speech 365. I love this product for introducing WH questions. I use it with a lot of my clients that benefit from visuals. I know that some of my colleagues have seen this and ended up purchasing their own copies.
2. Match It Quick-Vocalic /r/ from PSST! Let's Talk. This is a fun activity to pull out and get a lot of practice on vocalic /r/. Each card contains pictures of vocalic /r/. You pick another card and have to find the one picture that matches. There is a fair amount of prep if you want to cut out the circles but it's worth it. Very fun and motivating for my clients.
And now for one of my best sellers:
Don't be a Zombie: Pragmatic/Nonverbal Language: 60 pages of pragmatic language practice.
