This is a fun way to work on speech goals while you get your students engaged and excited about it!
To use, print and laminate the mats. Then, choose a mat for your student(s) to use. (I always pre-roll balls of PlayDoh to be smashed!) Have your students produce/imitate/identify the words on the mat as they “smash” a ball of PlayDoh on the corresponding picture.
Included are 6 Smash Mats:
CV Smash Mat
VC Smash Mat
CVC Smash Mat x2
CVCV Smash Mat x2
Also included are data sheets that go with each mat!
