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 /K,G/ sounds. There are 54 for K and 54 G words in the initial, medial, and final position of words.
There are so many additional goals that can be addressed while playing this game.
Articulation: Great for working on carryover! For younger students, you can use the cubes to drill or have them formulate their own sentences with the object they roll.
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 4 graphic organizers +1 additional blank graphic organizer template to help them with organizing their thinking and writing process.
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 working on already.)
Story Telling: (work on story elements)
How to prepare:
Print on card stock, Cut, Fold & Glue or Tape (I found it to be easier and cleaner to use tape.)
How to play:
1.Provide your students with one of the attached graphic organizers.
2.Have the students read over their graphic organizer to get familiar with it.
3.They will then roll all 9 dice. (If student is working on both /K,G/ sounds, you can use 3 /k/ dice and 3 /g/ dice.
4.Once they roll, they will pick one of the die to use for their title.
5.Then, they will place the other dice they rolled on each line of their graphic organizer.
6.Once they placed all of the dice, the students can come with the title of their story.
7.They will then complete the story by filling in the rest of the lines on the graphic organizer.
8.Encourage your students to go back and reread their story to make sure their title is fitting, and that there are no grammar errors.
9.Have them read to the class!
**I will be adding more target sounds for my articulation story cubes to my TPT store soon.***
