    Medicaid
    Information about billing Medicaid in South Dakota Public Schools is located at
    http://legis.sd.gov/Rules/DisplayRule.aspx?Rule=67:16:37.
    Parents must provide their signed consent before Medicaid benefits are accessed by the school district. This form can be personalized for your district to obtain consent. I send this form home with each student at the beginning of the school year in his or her homework folder and ask parents of new students who qualify for services to complete the form at the initial IEP meeting.

    Children's Books and Vocabulary Targets
    The following books are some that I have used in speech/language therapy sessions. The chart below each title lists words from the book or related to it. The grade levels indicated were determined using the "Essential words by grade level" list by Marzano et al. in the Paynter et al. text listed on the "Vocabulary Resources" page. In some cases, the grade level for the word is based on the root word. For example, "conference" is not listed, but the word "confer" is listed as a 6th grade level word.

    Written in rhyme, this text provides a starting point for additional lessons on forming adjectives by adding suffixes, using comparative and superlative adjectives, and word order in sentences containing adjectives.

    This is an entertaining story about a boy who travels through the city with 6,000 rats and the consequences of their travels. On each page, the target conjunction is written in colored print with an eye-catching font to highlight it. Students can identify the conjunctions and their purpose (coordinating, subordinating, etc.) and practice writing their own funny sentences and stories using those same conjunctions. Two pages of sample learning activities are included at the end of the book.

    The narrator draws a picture of her family, but isn't satisfied, so she describes each member with a series of similes based on objects, which are incorporated into the author's illustrations (e.g., the dog's ears are actually socks, representing the simile, "as smelly as dirty socks"). At the end of the story, readers are prompted to describe their family members using objects in similes. Specific objects are pictured that pair with traits that might describe a person. The same author has written My Best Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil.

    70 riddles that are solved by a homograph pair (e.g., Protest the competition = Contest the contest). The text also includes hints for solving the riddles, pronunciation guides, and answers.
