Monster Autopsy


What a long week! I'm glad we've finally reached Friday for quite a few reasons. Matt comes home from Ireland today so that is my top reason. But work has been pretty busy too. 



As a speech pathologist, I see students to work on their speech and language, but I also have lots of paperwork. I have a lot of evaluations going on to update evaluation results, dismiss students from speech, and evaluate new students. All my planning time has gone into that so my other paperwork and planning for speech sessions has been a little hard.

 On Tuesday I teamed up with the other speech pathologist to do a Halloween activity with our speech students. We called it monster autopsy. There were four covered bowls with monster parts in them that the students had to feel and describe with good describing words (no repeats!). Then we talked about them after everyone had a chance to feel and guessed what they really were. We had cauliflower for brain, bologna for skin, peeled grapes for eyes, and (my favorite) jello with fruit pieces for boogers. Everyone got a mini pumpkin to decorate and take home, too. We all had a blast. It can be a little lot of extra work, but I know the students enjoy it so much.  Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!

  12. They did have a lot of fun! And no, definitely can't go wrong with a sweatshirt. I love that this one is more fitted and not as casual as a typical one, but just as cozy!

  20. I just love watching the students' faces when they stick their hands in the 'monster boogers' without knowing what it really is. Priceless!

  22. I'm a little late to the leopard party, but I'm loving it as an accent. I can't believe what I was missing out on! Thank you Bianca!

  23. Same here! Just got into the leopard craze as of late, I feared that I might not be able to wear it well. But it seems like it is pretty easy to style and can really amp up your look with just a small accent. :)
