All Call!

I recently received an email asking how I do data collection.  I know personally in just the 2 years I’ve been working, I’ve had 20 different data sheets.  So either I’m very inefficient, or there are a million ways to keep data.  I would love it if I could get some readers to email me your data collection sheets with instructions.  I will then post as many as I can and you all can search and hopefully find one that works for you and your setting. 
Please email me at
I look forward to seeing all your ideas!

Gretz, NO sing!

This title is more fitting than you'll ever know.  I am pretty positive that I'm the next Carrie Underwood, but my students don't feel the same way.  I have one pre-school student that doesn't appreciate my vocal talents and thanks to his teacher he was taught to say politely "Gretz, no sing!".  I guess he's too young to appreciate this angelic voice.  That being said I thought I would share with you my song book.  I like to use the CASANA's Time To Sing along with my song book.  The songs are slowed down which makes it perfect for all of our speech and language kids.  I used this CD when I taught a preschool camp for children with lots of speech and language needs and during circle time and it was so nice that the kids had time to respond and sing along with the song.  Don't know what I would do without this CD!

I like to print 2 of each page and then velcro the words for each song on to a song page.  This way the kids can either pick what part of the song they want to have next, or work on sequencing with the songs. I also put the song list on the front of a 3-ring binder.  Then all my songs are living in the same place. 

Happy singing!
