This is a bundle of 5 flow charts.
These are helpful visuals for learning target sounds, at initial, final, medial, both initial and final. Also included is a blank chart, where you can work on initial, or final then both, and draw the connecting lines yourself, which also tends to be helpful for some students.
How it works:
You fill in the circle with the target sound. Then, you point at the target sound, follow the line, to each of the vocalic sounds. There are 10 vocalic sounds, which I wrote in the easiest to representations:
ay (as in say) ee (see) eye (sigh) oh (sew) oo (sue) ae (sad) eh (said) I (slid) uh (slush) aw (slosh)
So, if your student is learning voiced "th" sound at the initial level, write "TH" in the circle clearly. Point to "th" and follow the line to the first vowel sound, "ay," and have your student model you in saying, "THay," [Which would sound like, "they" (reminding them to turn their voice on for voiced)]. Then move your finger back to TH and follow the second line to "ee" having your student model you saying, "THee." Next, "THeye," "THoh," and, "THoo."
Keep going to the short vowels, "THae," THeh," THI," "THuh," and "THaw."
Once your student masters the initial position, you can move on to the sheet with the target sound for final position of words, following the same instructions as above. This time you will be modeling, "AyTH," "eeTH," 'eyeTH," "ohTH," "ooTH," "aeTH," "ehTH," "ITH," "uhTH," "awTH."
Next, move on to medial position of words, "AyTHay," "eeTHee," "eyeTHeye," "ohTHoh," "ooTHoo," "aeTHae," "ehTHeh," "ITHI," "uhTHuh," "awTHaw."
As you can see, most sound nonsensical, but some already sound like words.
There is also a page with the vowels down the center of the page, and two circles on each side. So you can, for example, fill in the circle for initial position, and work on that only, drawing your own lines from the target sound to whichever vowel you'd like. Then, cover the initial and do the same for final. Finally, uncover the initial and do initial and final at once, like, "THayTH," "THeeTH," "THeyeTH," "ThohTH," etc.
I suggest laminating and using a wet erase marker to fill in the circle with the target sound, if you would like to save on paper. You may also like to print new one's for each student, maybe even letting them write the sound themselves if they can do it clearly.
I hope these are useful to you for many years to come. THank you continuing to use my speech materials!
