56 pages of Articulation Templates! General themes, seasonal, holiday, and more!
This collection of articulation sheets was created as a way of providing different, weekly articulation practice sheets for in-session and home practice that can be adapted to each student.
NOTE: I did NOT provide the actual articulation words because my goal was to give templates that could be used year-round. It is the buyer's/clinician's responsibility to add the practice words.
To use this activity:
1) Select the Desired Theme: You can pick a seasonal, holiday, ‘month’ or other theme. You as the clinician can pick it, or you can allow the student to pick their sheet.
2) Brainstorm Articulation Words: This can be done without the student or with the student. With younger students, you can provide just 3-5 words. You can even cut/paste pictures that you find into the space. You can write the words in as well. For older students, I suggest including them in the process. As a ‘team’, the student and I look for or think of articulation words with their target sound. Sometimes we look in their reading book for the week, or we look through other articulation books. We select anywhere from 5-20 words and write the words in the box. Depending on the student, I have the student write, or I write the words. Some students enjoy using different colored markers or fancier gel pens. You can also send the blank sheet home, simply add your own note that the parents should help the child think of words with their target sound. The goal is for the student and parent to brainstorm words in the home setting together and then practice these words throughout the week/weeks. Having a student take responsibility for the word list and generate their own target words is a great way to help facilitate transfer of skill.
NOTE: This is not a ‘ready to go’ activity…either the clinician or the student/parent will need to add the words, which can be time consuming; however, my experience so far has been positive and students enjoy having some control over what they practice...whether it is picking the words or writing the words that I tell them in their own ‘style’ (different colors, etc).
3) Make sure to indicate what level of practice the student should do. I provided a few examples that you can place an “X” or checkmark. I also highlight or add special instructions if needed. I also provided an area to designate what sound you are targeting (/ /) and what position (initial, medial, final).
