These homework sheets are designed to ease everyone into the beginning of the school year and get your students talking about speech therapy, outside of the therapy room. I ask my students to do their speech therapy homework with whoever takes care of them at home (such as a parent, grandparent, older sibling, babysitter, or guardian).
These homework sheets are numbered 1-6. You can assign them in any order you want. I would suggest assigning one sheet each time you see the student for a therapy session, or you could assign one per week if the child attends therapy twice a week.
How to use Tween Speech Therapy's Pocket Sized Homework program:
1. Send home the parent letter (included).
2. Write the child's name on the pocket sized homework sheet (included) and send it home. Make a quick note on your therapy notes template (included).
3. Put the completed homework sheets in a bucket or bag, and hold a raffle drawing (with prizes) once or twice a week, using the homework itself as the raffle ticket.
Here are the reasons why I think this homework program is so effective.
It fits into any child's pocket.
This means it's discreet for adolescent students. It also means it won't get left at school, in the child's desk.
The directions are clear.
The instructions are already written on each homework sheet, saving you time. The included parent letter explains who, what, when, where, and why.
Students will want to do it.
They will want to have their names in the raffle drawing. The prizes can be anything you want.
The program is easy to use.
The included therapy notes template is all that you need to keep track of what you assigned, so you can avoid repeating the same assignment. You don't need to worry about assigning the sheets in order.
The materials are high quality.
The homework sheets are designed to be printed on a black and white printer, saving you money on ink. Articulation homework (available for sale separately) includes the target sound with a variety of words that have different vowel sounds and syllable lengths. Pictures that are appropriate for all ages of students are included with the articulation homework, to aid in decoding. That way, the students can focus more energy on articulation.
