What a fun way to practice your speech articulation goals and add motor coordination skills to therapy by creating this super pop up game! This is such a great way to keep those little hands busy and motivated while working on speech skills and fine motor skills! Have the student say a chosen word from the wrap as they try to get the ball to go into the top of the tube. Once they get the ball in, change the word that they must produce. You will get LOTS of trials per word!
Supplies that you will need to complete the craft: copy paper and a tissue tube (or you can print the wraps on card stock paper and you will not need to use a tissue tube), yarn, pom poms, glue, tape. You will need a hot glue gun to create the pom pom ball. Disclaimer: Please do not use this craft with a child who may be prone to putting objects into their mouth. It could become a choking hazard.
Every sound in every position plus blends are included. You have 4 words for every sound in the initial, 2 words in medial and 3 words in the final position of words. There are 9 images with words on each sound page. A blank form is also included so that you can use this same craft for you mixed groups. Detailed photo instructions are included for assembly.
A wrap is included for the following articulation sounds:
th (voiced) initial/medial/final
th (voiceless) initial/medial/final
s blends initial
r blends initial
L blends initial
Two blank wraps
