Getting To Know Your Favorite Online SLPs Linky Party

I am so excited to link up with many great SLPs today for the Getting To Know Your Favorite Online SLPs linky party. A huge thank you to the host Natalie Snyders!

Today I wanted to share a little bit about myself  with all of you. 

Who Am I?
My name is Erin Moore. I live in Chattanooga, TN with my husband, 12 year old son and spoiled rotten dog. I am a Speech-Language Teacher /Speech-Language Pathology Assistant. I graduated in 2010 from Ole Miss with my BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders.Upon graduation, I moved to Florida and began working. I have worked in private practice and the public school system for the past 5 years with students PK-5th grade. I have been on TPT since 2014, and started my blog this year.

What Do I Offer?
My store, The Speech Attic, offers a variety of quality materials that I use with my own students. My products are designed to target multiple areas of need. I use a lot of visuals to provide a foil for students. Many of my products are book companions or comprehensive language units. I aim to create affordable quality materials that will make your lives a little bit easier and less stressful.

My Dream Job?
Once I complete my Masters, I plan to open a private pediatric clinic. I have always wanted to own my own business. I also have a deep passion for creating TPT materials and a new found love for blogging, so more time for that and I would be one happy SLT.

3 Of My Favorite Things:
Traveling, creating materials, and my family

Who Else Should You Know?
I think you should know Mia McDaniel from Putting Words In Your Mouth. She has some amazing products in her TPT store. You can also find her on Facebook. And don't forget to check out her blog. Here is one of my favorite products from her store.

Speech Trading Post

Wow! I was looking at my calendar today and realized we are less than 20 days from summer break. YAY! The end is near. So, as we finish up this year I wanted to share with you a great summer product I recently had the opportunity to review. Hopefully this will make your planning easier for the next few weeks. As part of the Speech Trading Post series hosted by Sounds Like Fun, I was able to swap products with Jessica Finch from The Speech Peach and try out her Let's Go Camping! Language Pack. I love doing a camping theme right before the end of school and this was an awesome addition to my camping unit.

This pack was perfect for my Kg-1st grade students. The story was excellent for eliciting language and a great way to introduce camping to my students. We talked about what we would need when we go camping, things we could do, and animals we might see. The comprehension questions included three pictured choice, which I loved. My students had a great time working on positional concepts with the picture scene. And if all of that isn't awesome enough, she also had freebies in her store to go along with this pack which targeted vocabulary and articulation. My students had a blast! 

Oh and did I mention, Jessica is giving away her Let's Go Camping! Language Pack to one lucky winner! Enter Rafflecopter below.
