Hello! I created this resource because many of the young children I work with have difficulties with final consonant deletion and/or producing different sounds at the beginning and ends of consonant-vowel-consonant words. I love being able to send the materials I use in therapy home with families – and because I do this often, it’s great to have a black and white option for less ink and a coloring option.
I have included an activity/articulation worksheet and a simple booklet. The booklet can be nice because the pictures are bigger. Kids can touch the letter in each “letter bubble” as the produce the sounds “H – A – T” or “HA------T” for “HAT!” I also like to print 2 copies of the color book to laminate. Then I cut out the pictures of one copy and use velcro so that students can match the pictures. Kids enjoy interactive books!
There are many ways that you can use these activities, here are a few ideas:
Practice articulation at the word, phrase, sentence or conversational level
“Hat” “Wear a hat” “Put on the black hat.”
Find the matching objects around your home to help with generalization
Asking WH- Questions (“What happened to the balloon?”)
Following Directions (“Color the balloon red.”)
