Ok my fellow SLPeeps, I’m almost finished being jealous of everyone in Atlanta. As many of you know I love contests so I have one for those of you lucky enough to be there.
I would like to encourage you all to visit the SLPeeps vendors at their exhibit booths such as; Pediastaff, LessonPix, SuperDuper…and I would also like to see what I am missing. I WANT TO SEE YOUR ASHA PICS!!
To enter tweet me @ndnspeechmom a pic of one of the SLPeep Exhibit Booths (one entry per pic.) There are SEVERAL SLPeep booths so visit them all and get multiple entries OR just tweet me your general ASHA12 pics. Please?
The prize is a pair of handmade earrings made by @meabfly. They will be shipped to you directly after a winner is chosen on Monday. Feel free to post pics when the convention is over (like while you wait in the airport.) The winner will be able to get the pair of their choice but I guarantee it will be difficult to choose!!! (To my unicorns…aka male SLPeeps…these would also make a lovely gift.)
See more of @meabfly ‘s work on etsy or on Facebook
I own SEVERAL pairs of her earrings and I highly recommend them. Tweet on!
Last week my Cielo was quite sick and missed several days of school. She tried to go on Friday but the teacher called before 10 because Skye kept falling asleep at her desk. She came home with all her work she missed and we have been working on it.
The crafts, poems and reading were all easy but she was having difficulty with the Bossy R worksheets and song. (Yes there is a song and I had to sing)
I decided to get speechie with her so I made these Bossy R puppets. She loved them and she totally has it now. Hopefully her teacher gets a kick out of the puppets because Skye wants to take them to school to show her. I’m so proud and happy.
They are totally easy to make; just letters on Popsicle sticks.
May has come and gone which means that May Month ~ Better Speech and Hearing Month has passed. As you (hopefully) remember I was running a #MMpotd challenge to celebrate Speech and Hearing Awareness month…and I was very happy with the results. More than 260 #mmpotd pictures were posted on twitter and instagram and now I am excited to announce the winners!! (YES PLURAL! WINNERS!!)
The official winner is my official honorary Miss Suzie MMPOTD….. @alour! She posted an impressive 30 pictures!! She wins a year subscription to Lesson Pix and a CASLPA prize pack!
The first random winner (That I decided to name Miss Congeniality even before I knew who it was) is @namastebyday! She wins a CASLPA prize pack and a Super Duper bag!
The second lucky random winner is @abrc_SLP! She wins an app from Super Duper!!
The third lucky winner is @atklingensmith! She also wins an app from Super Duper!!
Thank you to everyone who participated but can I give a shout out and major snaps to my prize sponsors>>> CASLPA, LessonPix & SuperDuper!! It was so sweet and generous of them to support my giveaway/contest…and Ashley from SuperDuper and Lesson Pix both played and posted pics but did not want to be in the prize drawing. I highly recommend their products, but even better I recommend them as twitter/social media personalities. I love businesses that stay connected to their customers and I love the interactions and relationships that can be developed online.
So great job everyone…I loved seeing all the pictures and getting to know you all a little better!
Winners please email me your snail mail addy for your prize>> firstname.lastname@example.org
Random winners were selected using http://www.random.org/
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
Participate as much as you like…if you miss any days feel free to “catch up” with us and post pics from earlier in the month.
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.
Once I was working with a little boy and had the most hilarious exchange. I jotted down everything he said after, and I just found this and thought I’d share.
“You know, you should do something about your arms.”
“What do you mean?”
“You’re pretty and nice but your arms…are so hairy.”
(I couldn’t say anything because I was cracking up)
“If you leave them like that…nobody will want…to catch you…like to get married.”
“I am married.”
