I make these coloring pages for articulation and teaching sound letter correspondence and they work great! We color sheets, then laminate them, and then use them as placemats for a week or two. I recommend parents to keep these on their kitchen or dining room tables and practice with their kids before each meal. Caution!! Always, always, always avoid putting pressure on the child, especially in the beginning of starting a program like this. Just model the sounds and have the child repeat. Eventually they will improve, don't put too much emphasis on being perfect, no one is! In this bundle are the letters D, F, K, M, G, N, V, W, J, & R.
Step 1: Print sheet
Step 2: Choose sound child can already produce
Step 3: Introduce the circles on the worksheets as "buttons"
Step 4: Teacher/Clinician/Parent model correct production of the sound each time you hit the button. (I like to sing "Every letter makes a sound "D" says "Dah," "Dah,""Dah,""Dah,""Dah,"...)
Step 5: Repeat step 4 but this time invite the child to make the sounds with you.
Step 6: Add the vowel sound to each consonant. Hit each button and model the correct production of the consonant + vowel.
Step 7: Repeat step 6 but this time invite the child to make the sounds with you.
Step 8: Color in everything. Talk about the pictures, talk about life, talk about anything. Just chill and color.
Step 9: Once it is all finished, comment on how beautiful it is! Then ask the child if they remember how to use the sheet and invite them to do it all by themself!
Step 10: Laminate!!!! Then just the worksheet as a placemat at the kitchen or dining room table and practice (casually, without any stress) before each meal.
