Speech Therapy in the Home: Using Valentine Cards

Every year, I always have leftover Valentine cards. There’s 20 kids in the class but the Valentine card companies package the cards in quantities of 32.   I’m pretty sure it’s a conspiracy of some sort but I digress. Anyway, what should you do with those leftover cards? I have some ideas for you! That’s code… Continue reading Speech Therapy in the Home: Using Valentine Cards
