You guys. Is it Valentines Day yet? I'm on day 20 of the #Whole 30 and chocolate sounds SO good. Since I can't have any quite yet, I made up this "sweet" articulation activity. A girl can dream, right? I used the 3.5 inch #russellstover boxes for $1 at Walmart and I might have cleaned them out I bought so many! This little freebie includes a cover, practice blanks to create your own words, and a letter to parents reminding students to practice. It doesn't include the chocolate, however. 😜 Link in profile or www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Articulation-Box-of-Chocolate-Valentine-Freebie-2971656... See MoreSee Less
With all the ugliness bombarding us these days, this song at church this morning seemed to speak directly to my heart. He remains constant and rich in love despite anything that surrounds us. ... See MoreSee Less

True story! Especially when they involve baby handprints. I've tried and tried but I cannot get my 7 month old to calmly hold still while I dip his hand in paint and then spread his fingers to make what looks like a perfect Pinterest craft. For those of you successful in this area, any tips are welcome lol! Thankfully, we have very loving grandparents who still think the crafts are "cute." ... See MoreSee Less

I'm joining in on the #MeetMeTPT fun to share some interesting (and not-so-interesting) facts about me. And yes, I'm wearing my new favorite go-to shirt which pretty much sums up my life. But... if you want to know more, read on! I'm Nicole Allison, blog author behind Speech Peeps and a Speech Language Pathologist who thinks the world of her job. 1️⃣I love Jesus and need His grace each and every day.
2️⃣I actually had speech therapy to correct my /r/ sound in 5th and 6th grade, which really comes in handy because I can give those older students still struggling with this sound hope!
3️⃣I knew without a doubt I wanted to be some sort of teacher since I was five years old. Every single penny of my allowance was spent at the teacher supply store to decorate my bedroom with educational posters. Come to think of it, nothing's changed. 😜
4️⃣I fell in love with my husband at age 15 and he's been the only person I've ever dated. And now we have two beautiful children. My life is full <3
5️⃣I keep a constant supply of cookie dough in my freezer (raw eggs and all) for THOSE days.
6️⃣I'm currently on day 17 of the Whole 30 program, which makes the above ^^^difficult. 😬
7️⃣True story: My husband and I bought our century home at an auction because the auctioneer took me unintentially sipping on my lemonade (head nod) as a bid. Needless to say, my husband has never again taken me to an auction 😳
8️⃣I'm thankful that God knows what He's doing (as in the above situation^^^ it was the best thing that could have happened to us).
9️⃣During the remodeling of our century house, I went for 6 LONG months without a kitchen. And in case you were wondering, washing dishes in a tiny bathroom sink does get old. 😬
🔟I have a side hobby of photography, and I especially love doing newborn photography for those baby snuggles. I'd love to hear from you! What hobbys, fun facts or crazy events have you ever been part of? ... See MoreSee Less
