Designed for use in Speech Therapy to target Articulation / Phonology. Contents include:
1” picture squares measured to fit over “Don’t Break The Ice” game ice cubes.
Stimulus pictures and words, with target sound highlighted.
Includes the following sheets, with 32 target pictures/words per sheet:
/s/ initial, /s/ medial, /s/ final
/l/ initial, /l/ medial, /l/ final
Prevocalic /r/, Vocalic /r/*
R-blends, S-blends, L-blends
*Vocalic R contains 48 pictures- 8 pictures each for ER, OR, AR, AIR, IRE, and EAR
*Prepare your “Don’t Break the Ice” game by attaching a velcro coin (“hook” side) to each ice cube.
*Cut out each picture square and laminate for durability. Affix a velcro coin (“loop” side) to the back of each square.
*Select the sound and position you want to target. Attach picture cards to ice cubes and assemble the game as usual.
*Students must name the picture (say their target word) on the ice cube they wish to pound out with the hammer.
*Vary the requirements for each student depending on their skill level. Have the student say the word 5x, use the word in a carrier phrase, or use the word in a sentence.
*For Extra Practice: Print out an additional copy of each sound sheet and laminate the entire sheet (do not cut out squares). Use as stimulus materials for drill practice or sound production probes!
*For mixed groups- target language skills by having students label the pictures, and describe by category/function/attribute.
