These came about because using articulation cards or sound repetitions was getting a little old. I decided to create cans full of sticks with target sounds {pictures} on them to use for therapy.

Here's how I made them and how I use them: 

1) I was lucky enough to get pint sized cans donated and wrapped the cans with pretty paper.  If you don't have "connections" at the paint store, you can buy these for mere cents at any paint store.  If you give a sob story about them being for your classroom,  the store may even donate them! 

2) I made myself some cute labels (included). I decided to combine sounds in one can (like k/ and /g/, /d/ and /t/, etc) so that I didn't need so many cans, but do what suits your needs.

3) I laminated them (not really necessary) and ran them through my Zyron machine to add adhesive to the back of them (any adhesive method will do) Then I cut out the little tongue depressor sized pictures. I learned that there are 2 different sizes of tongue depressors.  These fit the slightly larger ones.  Mine were the smaller variety so I just cut these a little toward the inside of the line.  

4) Then I stuck them on my tongue depressors ! Voila! I slapped my labels on my cans and plopped the phoneme sticks into the corresponding cans! 

Here is how I have used them so far: 

1) Students come in and grab their can.  The sticks inside will be their target words for therapy that day rather than me calling out words or flipping sound cards.  I will tell you it got a little "clangy" so I put a little swatch of fabric in each can and that took care of that.  Students either said the word represented on the stick or they made a sentences, etc, according to which level they are working on. 

2) While I drill with other students in the group, I have the students who are waiting their turn pick sticks and sort them by initial, medial and final sounds. Good for building phonemic awareness and for getting them thinking about which part of the word they need to focus on when it's their turn to try that word! They just plop each stick in the corresponding square of their paper.  Keeps hands and brains busy! (page 6)
OR for students who can write, they can pick sticks while they wait and write a sentence about each stick. Then they can take it home for speech homework!  (page 7).

3) Finally, I can use these as a ticket out the door.  After therapy is over, as the kids leave my room, they pick one stick from their sound can- one last chance to show off their skills!

- You will use this over and over again for years to come! Enjoy!
