Three quick no-prep activities for speech therapy to get 100 trials for articulation. Three activities are included and these items are not sold separately. Think of this as your no-prep survival packet! Each page includes a data sheet for explicit tracking and practice.
The same target words are used in each of the three activities. In my speech office, we pick a few target to practice repeatedly for the month to encourage carryover.
This activity is easy to manage for groups and your OTs will be proud to watch you include fine motor practice into your sessions. There are several different art projects included! They are randomly assigned so that you can have a student use the initial and final to make two different crafts!PREP DIRECTIONS: No-Prep! Just gather some construction paper, push pins, and a stapler or paper clips. You’ll have your students work on the carpet or give them a small carpet square you put on the desk.
ACTIVITY DIRECTIONS: Give the student a paper and paperclip or staple a piece of construction paper to the back of it. Give the student a push pin and review the targeted words at the bottom of the sheet. The student will say a word for each pin hole they poke. Help them count as they say each word and mark that information in the boxes at the bottom of the sheet. This will track when they have practiced 100 trials. When each hole has been poked, remove the construction paper and hold it up to a light to see the shape!
10 Frame Tally:
Use the Ten Frames to tally as you practice words.
PREP DIRECTIONS: No-Prep! Just gather some crayons or markers. ACTIVITY DIRECTIONS: Give each student a ten frame tally sheet. Practice each word 20 times. Color the ten frame as you go!
The classic pig pen/dot box game is perfect to elicit many trials of practice. PREP DIRECTIONS: No-Prep! Just give the two players different colored pens/markers to play. ACTIVITY DIRECTIONS: Take more boxes than your opponent. You move by connecting two dots with a line. When you place the last 'wall' of a single square (box), the box is yours. The players move in turn, but whenever a player takes a box (s)he must move again. The student will say a word for each line they make. If they close a box, say 5 words. Help them count as they say each word and mark that information in the boxes at the bottom of the sheet. This will track when they have practiced 100 trials. When each box has been closed, count the boxes completed by each to determine who won the game.
