With the new year brings new experiences. I am starting a brand new one in just a few days, I am going to be supervising a student SLP in his school internship…and I am so excited! The school is where I love to work and the placement that makes me happy and I am excited to share that with someone who is still learning. I was thrilled when got the packet of information for my student from their university, and then I opened the packet and went…
I knew there would be paperwork but there were a lot of other things that I was going to need to keep track of! Then I started to think of other things I would like to have on hand, things that would have been helpful for me way back when I was student teaching. Then, of course, I started to think of my student and also back to how nervous I was going into my student teaching. What could I do to help him and make him feel welcome and prepared? So I got to work on these two new binders. One is for supervising SLPs and one is for students.
The supervising SLP binder contains:
-Tips for Supervising SLPs
-Weekly Time Frame ( Includes an editable version )
-Parents/Guardians Letter: Two on a page to save you paper.
-Important Information ( Editable )
-Student Feedback Form: Use for weekly feedback conferences with your student.
-Student Self Evaluation Form: Use to gauge how your student is perceiving their skill development.
-Student Expectations ( Includes an editable version )
You read that right, there are are editable portions of the binder for supervisors to customize to their schedules, philosophies, and needs. Of course, you can also keep all of your paperwork from the university in the binder as well. I like to have everything in one spot and within reach.
The student SLP binder contains:
-How to Use Student Binder: A break down of all sections and how they can be used to make your life easier.
-Student Notes: Great for recording information about individual students during meetings or observations.
-Notes Page: Use for jotting down questions and notes during sessions and while observing.
-Data sheet ( Editable ): If you don’t have a data system yet, I’ve got you covered.
-Weekly Hour Tracker: Use new sheets each week to keep track of all hours.
-Weekly Total Tracker: Record your week, total hours and then you can section them out in the time column.
-Blank Calendar: Keep track of meetings, testings, screenings, etc without buying a big planner from the store!
Supervisors can purchase the set to organize themselves and welcome their students. The great thing about the binders is that even though they are sold in a set doesn’t mean only supervisors can purchase them. A grad can most definitely purchase this product and use the student binder only to impress their supervisor on day by showing them they are prepared and excited to learn about this new setting.
You can read more about these binders in my TpT store HERE. If you have questions about the binders please send me an email or leave a comment, I’m happy to answer them 🙂 I know I feel more organized and prepared now with the binders assembled and ready to go.
