This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation in an engaging way. This sample version includes: initial/medial/final p.

The full version includes: Initial/Medial/Final: p, b, m, n, t, d, k, g, f, Initial: y, h, w, Initial sblends: sp, st, sm, sn, sk, sl. (full set will be posted after Thanksgiving along with a language version)

Materials Needed: Counting bears and sorting cups. Counting bear mats

Assembly: Low Prep! Print the mats in color, one sided. Laminate or place in sheet protectors (optional, not required). Use the black & white version for an ink friendly option with the game or with bingo dotters/crayons.

To use: Place counting bears over each bear on the mat (I place 1-3, more bears = more trials). The student will use tongs or their hand to pick up a bear and put it in a sorting cup. Each time they pick up a bear they will practice the word on the mat.


  • Play dough mats:. The student will squish play dough over each bear after they practice the target word.
  • Bingo chips: The students will place a bingo chip over each circle on the bear as they practice the target word.
  • Bingo dotters: Use the black and white version! The student will dot the circle on the bear’s tummy after they practice the word.
