✂️ Articulation Craft Bundle #3
This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation perfect weather themed lesson plans. It is a simple cut and paste craft! Perfect for k-5 (some younger students may need cutting assistance, depending on fine motor abilities).
Commonly targeted phonemes included:
⚡ Initial/Medial/Final: k, g, f, v, l, s, z, ch, j, sh, th (mixed voiced/unvoiced)
⚡ lblends, rblends, sblends (separate mats for sp, st, sm, sn, sk, sl, sw, mixed)
⚡ Pre-vocalic r, or, er, ar, air, ear, ire, rblends
Don't see a sound you need? I included a blank page to use with any speech/language target.
I also included a guide that can be used as a coloring page too! Table of contents/page guide included to make finding the page you need easy!
None! Print & go!
➞ To use: Print out a storm page for every student in the group (page 5). Print out the rain page with the target phoneme needed for each student. I have the students color the storm page first so that they are ready to create their storm (or they can do this between turns to keep their hands busy). The student will color and practice each target word on the rain drops/lightning bolts. The student will cut out the rain drops/lightning bolts and practice the words again. The student will glue all of the rain drops/lightning bolts on the storm and practice the words one more time!
