Give your articulation students practice transitioning from different phonemes to their target sound.
I have noticed that some of my students have difficulty transitioning from certain sounds to words containing their target sound in the initial position. If we expect students to use their target sounds naturally in connected speech, they need to be able to transition quickly and easily between all speech sounds. I created these worksheets to help these students get practice with this skill to improve the fluency with which they are able to say target words in phrases and sentences.
This packet includes a variety of single syllable words ending in consonants and vowels: 20 consonants, all 6 vocalic /r/ variations, and 8 vowels/diphthongs.
-Print a couple copies to laminate and keep close to your therapy table.
-Print copies for students to take home for homework after practicing during therapy.
-Each page has a place to put an articulation card, or to write and/or draw the student's therapy target word.
