Of course, May is also Better Hearing and Speech Month! I thought I'd share a few activities that I'm doing at my school. Have a looksy!

First, I created a little "Did you know" wall in the main entryway at school, since I didn't have much bulletin board space to work with. I just printed out some interesting stats and cutesied them up, then attached them to the wall with teacher tape.
Next, I made several bookmarks that include tips for teachers on articulation, language, fluency, and hearing loss. I plopped these in the teacher's lounge free for the taking!
You can make some of your own too! Just download this printable freebie HERE, punch a hole in the top, and attach ribbon or yarn. I had a lot of yarn on hand, so I just used that.
Lastly, I found some oh-so-fabulous free printables from Heather's Speech Therapy. You should totally head over to her blog and check them out. So fun!
I attached her vocal hygiene printables to tiny water bottles and will put them in the teacher's boxes for a little treat.
I also printed the noise-induced hearing loss printable to little baggies of ear-plugs to put in the their boxes for next week.
I hope my teachers like some of these fun tips! Anyway, what do you think? How are y'all celebrating Better Hearing and Speech Month??
