Do you love Rory’s story cubes? My students love making up stories using the cubes. I came up with sound specific cubes to address my articulation students. This version is for the /F,V/ sounds. There are 57 for F and 54 V words in the initial, medial, and final position of words.
K and G story cubes are available in my store.
There are so many additional goals that can be addressed while playing this game.
Articulation: Great for working on carryover!
Pragmatics: Your students can work together to make up a story. They can work on eye contact, turn taking, commenting, requesting, staying on topic, etc.
Fluency: When reading back their made up story, they can make sure to use their fluency strategies they were taught.
Writing: I’ve included 3 graphic organizers to help them with organizing their thinking and writing process. Blank organizers are also included.
Main Idea/Supporting Details: Students will work on coming up with a title for their story. They need to make sure their story stays on topic. They will then need to complete their graphic organizer to go along with the title of their story.
Grammar: Students have to make sure they are using correct grammar throughout their story. The SLP can make sure to target specific grammar goals they are already working on.
Story Telling: Work on story elements.
How to prepare: Print, Cut, Fold & Glue
How to play:
Provide your students with one of the attached graphic organizers.
Have the students read over their graphic organizer to get familiar with it.
They will then roll all 9 cubes. (If a student is working on both /F,V/ sounds, you can mix both sound cubes together. Once they roll, they will pick one of the cubes to use for their title. Then, they will place the other cubes they rolled on each line of their graphic organizer. Once they placed all of the cubes, the students can come with the title of their story.They will then complete the story by filling in the rest of the lines on the graphic organizer.Encourage your students to go back and reread their story to make sure their title is fitting, and that there are no grammar errors. Have them read to the class!
Additional ways to use articulation story cubes.
1. Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then (S,W,B,S,T) Graphic Organizers are included in this package. Students can make up their somebody and roll the cubes to come up with a story for the Wanted, But, So, Then.
2. My students enjoy practicing their articulation by rolling a cube, saying it the requested amount of times needed, and then stacking them one on top another.
3. Slide 16-Students can roll 4-6 cubes and illustrate a story to write about.
