Twas the night before report cards, and all through the school
All the teachers were missing, 'cept Super Woman (that ol' fool)
The grades were all entered into computers with care
With hopes that the crash monster would not go there
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of teacher work days danced in their heads
And my kids at home with me still at work
Thinking "more screen time" and giving a smirk
When out of the printer there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my cheap chair to see what was the matter
Away to the printer desk I flew like The Flash
Tore out the papers and threw back the stash
The moon out the windows shone brighter than day
And lit up the unit I created to my dismay
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But 29 pages of lessons, to get me through this year!

I just used these materials to create a lesson plan for an actual group of three 3rd graders with both language and articulation goals. I had MORE than enough materials to cover the entire month of November! Here is a screen shot of the first 5 therapy lesson plans:
I hope you enjoy this book (and these materials) as much as I do! :) If you love them, please make sure to give me feedback on TpT (and follow me!).
