Color AND black & white! Low Prep! Ink Friendly Options!

This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation in an engaging way. This version includes the following sounds: Initial/final p/b/m (for bilabials and final consonants), final t, d, n (for final consonants), initial/medial/final: k, g, f, v, l, s, z, sh, ch, th, lblends, , sblends (sp, st, sm, sn, sk, sl, sw, mixed), pre-vocalic r, er, or, ar, air, ear, & rblends. I also included blank open-ended pages.

Materials Needed: Racing mats, *10 toy cars, finish line (optional)
Optional: play dough, bingo chips, bingo dotters, crayons

Assembly: Low Prep! Print the racing mats in color, one sided. Laminate or place in sheet protectors (optional, not required). Use the black & white version for an ink friendly option.
Optional finish line: Cut out and laminate (the students will race the car past the finish line).

I use the toy cars I have collected over the years in therapy for this activity. You can buy toy cars at toy stores, Amazon, or dollar stores.

To use: Set the racing mats in front of the student (by target phoneme). I do this activity on the floor to allow more racing space. Place the finish line across from the racing mats. Line up the toy cars over the cars on the mat (or if it is too tempting to have all of the cars at once, hand the student one car at a time). As they race each car towards the finish line (by pushing/rolling the car off of the mat), the student will practice the word in the circle (the therapist will determine the number of trials per frog, 10X per car will = 100 trials). At the end of the round, your students will count how many of their cars made it past the finish line (you can make it a contest!). I suggest doing a couple practice races to gauge the distance needed for the finish line.

*10 cars are recommended but not required. If you have less than 10 cars, the student will retrieve the cars and do the activity again until they have practiced all of the words on the mat.
