Everything you need to create your own Articulation Mirror Station within your therapy room or classroom!
Including phonemes and photo models for /m, b, p, w, f, v, th, l, n, d, t, s, z, sh, zh, “j”, ch, y, r, er, g, k, h,/and short vowels
Directions for assembly: Use the attached photos to create a mirror in your room to stimulate production of all sounds in isolation. I used an inexpensive wall mirror turned sideways and placed it on the wall at eye level for the students. Students work their way through the consonant phonemes from the front to the back of their mouth. If you cut the included photos in horizontal strips, they will be in the correct order. Vowels are pictured vertically along the right side of the mirror. Alternately, you may choose to print a copy on card stock, cut out the cards and attach them on a book ring which students could then flip through with a portable mirror.
How I use this: I have each group come to the mirror at the beginning of each session. We begin each session by having one student (or myself) point to each sound in succession as they work their way toward the back of their mouth. It is engaging to have each student have a “job”, so another student holds up a photo of my dog (or you could use any dog photo) when we get to /r/ (bark) and /er/(closer to a growl sound minus the /g/). Recently, I also added a fake microphone that another student uses which has been a big hit. Another student uses a flashlight to shine on his/her mouth as they say their sounds. The remaining students are wand watchers which hold magic wands to ensure that each sound is being said by everyone in the group. The jobs and associated materials are optional. In my experience, they have been a fabulous addition at minimal cost. The attached Mirror Management poster may be used as a task display or cut into cards, if desired.
This Articulation Station is also a great addition to the hallway, preschool, Kindergarten or first grade classroom for regular education or Response to Intervention purposes.
UPDATED 4/22/2017 - The premise remained the same; however the formatting was updated to add to the decor of your speech room without detracting from the task at hand. There are options both with and without a background included for you so you can choose what works best for you.
