Back to School (Internet) Scavenger Hunt

It's back to school time!!! This is always such an exciting time of the year.  I love school shopping, decorating my speech room and the overall joy and excitement that comes with a fresh start to a new school year.  I also LOVE scavenger hunts.  What better way to celebrate back to school than with a scavenger hunt?

http://bit.ly/1Mc0Jbc


This scavenger hunt is not your typical hunt.  Instead of gathering items or pictures, you will be looking for "secret" words.  The google doc (listed below) has all of the instructions and hyperlinks to a variety of different SLP sites.  Some will be blogs, some will be Facebook pages, and some might be Instagram pages.  Your job is to visit each link and find all of the secret words (one for each link).  Once you have gathered all of the words, you will use them to enter the rafflecopter below for the GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY!!!  This is a great prize y'all.  Our grand prize winner will receive: $25 Amazon gift card, $25 Teacher Pay Teachers gift card, $25 iTunes gift card, a free app from Smarty Ears, a free app from Language Learning Apps, LLC, and several free products from some of our awesome SLP bloggers.  What a great prize!

As you are collecting your secret words, we hope you will enjoy learning more about your favorite SLP bloggers, meet some new bloggers, and you may grab some goodies along the way.  There are so many SLP bloggers who have great information to share.  We hope you enjoy getting to know us.  If you read something interesting, be sure to leave a comment for that blogger.  We love getting comments from our readers!  :-)

Ready to start?  Click HERE for the instructions and links. (All links should be live by 10:00pm central time on Saturday, August 8.)

Once you have found all of your words, enter the rafflecopter below.  Enter by midnight on August 14 (Central Time). Good luck!!!

  3. Hi Kristin,
    Kristin, Thanks so much for organizing this! I am working on finding the words, and I can't find a few of the clues on the Kidz Learn Language site, the Speech Attic Instagram, My Speech Party, or Sounds Like Fun... am I missing them? Do you have a clue for me about where I should be looking? Thanks so much!

    1. SoundsLikeFun's word is under the third pic. Myspeechparty's phrase is the third sentence. I can't find anything on speech attic either. On kidz learn's FB page she mentions looking at the HALLMARK in her post about PODD, but I don't understand what the word is supposed to be...

    2. Meg- thanks! I was thinking that might be the word for Kidz Learn Language, but since she doesn't say anything about the give away, I wasn't sure.

    3. Don't worry about The Speech Attic's word. Hallmark is for Kidz Learn...
      Thank you!

  4. Thank you all for your participation! I have contacted the authors of those sites and will get back to you as soon as we have the words straightened out. Thank you!

  5. Ladies, I updated the google doc. Don't worry about the word for The Speech Attic. Just enter the other 24 words. Kidz Learn's word is Hallmark. Thank you for participating!

  9. I am (ahem) an older SLP and not very instagram and blog aware.. so this has been an amazing learning experience for me! I am having difficulty getting into NW Speech Therapy Blog through FB. I can get to the blog but not connect to get secret word via FB.
    I am also hoping that the Secret Word in Mrs. T SLP is in her logo at the top of the page? I couldn't find another specific reference to the secret word?

    1. NW Speech is pool. Mrs T SLP does have her word in her profile. I thought I replied to this, but didn't see it here, so I'm sorry for the late response.

  11. Loved this and really had me at my desk for awhile as I read through blogs, pages and looked at some great pictures. On Speech Language Fun was it a phrase rather than a word? Thanks

  13. Soooooo I submitted an answer that didn't have some of the facebook words on it because my facebook had crashed and wasn't working on my phone or computer.... but now I have them! But I can't resubmit in the rafflecopter and I can't find an email for you ANYWHERE so I am going to submit on here because the contest ends in one minute anyway :)

  15. I guess I misunderstood the time frame, and thought it went till midnight on the night of 8/14, not as it turned midnight from 8/13, guess it was a semantic error on my part. Sad, cause I had all the words.
