Use the following worksheets to improve your students’ speech production skills while reinforcing their literacy skills. Students have the ability to produce the sounds in isolation, words, phrases and sentences while the printed word provides the students opportunities to practice letter-sound correspondence, segmentation, and blending.
The phrase level tasks also address sight words. The sentence level tasks address sentence structure, vocabulary, sight words, and grammar.
Activities are organized in a progressive hierarchy from isolation through sentence level tasks for the initial and final position the sound targeted. Directions are located at the top of each page.
Works great for once weekly 15 minute lessons conducted with small groups (about 5 students) during Balanced Literacy Centers in the classroom, short pull-out therapy activities or as take home practice worksheets.
For weekly literacy centers lessons the following progression is suggested:
Week 1 – Introduction of sound/Isolation Level Production
Week 2 – Syllable Level Production
Week 3 – Word Level Production
Week 4 – Phrase Level Production
Week 5 – Sentence Level Production
Week 6 – Sound Loaded Book (from Literacy Speaks! ® or other resource)
