I think it would be helpful if I posted some details for this challenge. As previously posted, May is Speech and Hearing Month. Since I am a Speech Pathologist this is a month that is near and dear to my heart. Being an avid instagram & twitter user I thought it would be fun to do a Speech and Hearing May Month photo of the day…and so I created THIS
As usual I want to have prizes and I want everyone to have fun. Please mark all entries with the #MMpotd hashtag or @ndnspeechmom so I will know you are participating and can give you credit for that entry.
So far my ideas for winners are
- Most entries (if multiple people post 31 pics I will choose one of them randomly)
- Random Lucky Winners – every pic posted is 1 chance to win, the more pics you post the most chances you have. There will be several *random* winners as all the prizes haven’t been determined yet.
So far for prizes I have CASLPA SWAG (leather portfolios, notebooks & other assorted office gear), an APP FROM SUPER DUPER called Understanding Inferences and the world famous SUPER DUPER BAG (donated thanks to the lovely @AshleyLesleySD ), a year subscription to LESSON PIX donated by @LessonPix and then some other awesome and amazing prizes that I haven’t decided on yet. I am so thankful for these wonderful and generous people for donating prizes for the challenge. I vouch for them as both brilliant and potential twitter BFFs.
In order to make sure you get your pictures entered please remember to either @ reply me (@ndnspeechmom) or to use the #MMpotd on your post. Pictures can be entered either on twitter or instagram. Please have fun with this and post away!!
If you decide not to post please follow the #MMpotd hashtag, I’m already getting a lot of ideas and I’m really enjoying all the pictures. Be creative, interpret the topics in your own way.
I feel a little bad for any non SLP readers (do I have nonSLP readers?) for all the SLPeepGame posts on twitter. Also, I didn’t realize until the game was complete exactly how hard the game was…….so in the interest of “upping the ante” I have sweetened the pot. The lucky winner will receive 1) a year’s subscription to Lesson Pix 2) an app from Verbally App and 3) these ndnspeechmom approved earlobe decorations!
I know right? Awesome. Please feel free to PLAY THE GAME and don’t worry, comments are screened so nobody can see your answers. And to anyone who does not like/wear earrings…I’m fairly sure you could find these a home.
Note: the techie prizes were both donated independently, and although I have not tried either product I am sure they are amazing. Questions about the app and the subscription are best asked of the very generous, extremely attractive and utterly brilliant @VerballyApp and @LessonPix. I’m so pleased that they not only donated prizes to the game but submitted pictures for it as well.
Thank you to everyone that submitted their picture and facts for the game. I have had an awesome time looking at everyone’s pictures and learning a little more about all of you. Now for the explanation. The childhood pic will be posted with the five facts; the object of the game is to match the childhood pic with the corresponding SLPeep.
THE PRIZES – Yes, I said prizes, as in plural. I am happy to say that I have had 2 fabulous prizes donated for the winner of the game. The first is an app from @VerballyApp and the second is a gift certificate to @LessonPix !! I’d like to thank them for their generous donations and I encourage everyone to explore their products. Personally I can’t wait to get an iPad so I can try all the iPad only apps. In addition there is also a prize of a pair of beaded earrings.
The Winner will be the person who identifies the most correct SLPeeps by Friday evening (winner announced Saturday Feb 11.) Good luck everyone!
Please match the following SLPeeps (and honorary SLPeeps) with the childhood photos below. I have provided a link to each twitter page so you can get hints from their avatar (if you need help) and also so you can follow any that you are not currently following. I am hoping that this game will be fun…it will definitely be challenging since we have 26 participants!! Let’s MEET THE SLPEEPS!!!! (I totally did a ring announcer voice when I typed that.)

Thanks for playing and good luck! Leave your guesses in a comment and EVERYONE is allowed to play INCLUDING those who submitted pictures. Please give it a try, VerballyApp and LessonPix really donated some wonderful prizes (that I wish I could keep!)
Most correct out of 26 by Friday night wins…will call contest early if someone gets all 26. Comments will be screened so nobody will see your guesses.
***Guesses in the following format please: SLPeep #30 is @ndnspeechmom
Tan’si! Hi….this feels awkward only because I haven’t posted in so long. I obviously missed the obligatory “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year” posts but I hope you all had a great holiday. Now that we are well into the new year our lives are all returning to normal. Thank goodness. 2012. I thought for sure I would have a jetpack by now.
I was having coffee with my dad the other day and he was looking through the pictures on my laptop of my children over the holidays. He told me how lucky they are to have so many pictures from their childhood. He said he only has a few baby pictures of himself and I mentioned that I had a couple that I found online. He stared at me blankly and I reminded him that I had told him about it over a year ago. He continued to stare at me so I directed him to this website and showed him this picture. The caption of the picture (from a newspaper at the time) was
“Santa Visits Indian Kiddies at North Battleford.”
He was completely stunned. He stared at the picture for the longest time and named all the other boys without reading the caption below it. He laughed and told me, “We even rounddanced for him. That was a nice day.” My dad was sick a lot as a child, and spent quite a bit of time in the hospital. He told me that was why he was only in residential school for a year, he was taken out and put in the hospital . Maybe being sick saved him from years and years in residential school like my mother had to attend.
