This week I’m reviewing another great Learning Resources product that can be used a lot of different ways in your speech room! Where is Howie’s Owie? is a fun activity that will target expressive and receptive language targets. The item comes with a two sided easel stand. One side is magnetic and has Howie on the beach, the other side has lines drawn for labeling Howie! The easel comes with colorful magnetic bandages, enough to give Howie 20 Owies! There are many learning targets that Howie lends himself to in the speech room. My preschool student and I worked on vocabulary and following 1 and 2 step directions with temporal and conditional directions. I even snuck in some concepts such as ‘top, middle, bottom, under, next to, between, corner.’ We developed simple sentences for /k/ carryover and said ‘Doctor fix ___’ for each band aid we added to poor Howie! We answered WH questions while we added band aids too ( ie: “Where is the purple band aid?”) Lastly we targeted some basic inferencing skills. The second time we applied Howie’s band aids, I gave clues and scenarios and the child had to decide where the band aid should go. For example, ‘Howie tried to catch a a bumble bee in his hands! Ouch! Where is Howie’s Owie?’ During a literacy group we used Howie at circle time to work on Phonological Awareness skills. Each student added a band aid to a body part. Then they name that body part, a word that rhymed with it, the initial and final sound in their body part, and how many syllables that word contained. I can’t wait to use Howie in our Health and 5 Senses week next year during preschool! Speech Room News was provided a copy of this product for review. No other compensation was provided.

I love all barrier games…this one looks super cute and engaging. I had such a busy year, I haven’t had time to look at a catalog in ages. Please keep your app reviews coming, I think those are the hardest to make decisions on.
I love all the things you have reviewed. I would like the Buddy Bear apps reviewed. I been wanting them but they were 35 dollars a piece but they did just reduce them to 14.99. I love the books just wondering if the apps are worth it.

Have you done a review on Speech Buddies. I have had a few parents ask me about them, but I don’t have the money to put into something like that without knowing if they are/can be beneficial.
