Eliciting R Boom Cards is a simple program that includes activities, visuals, and video examples that take you step-by-step through foundational skills, establishing common vocabulary and awareness, selecting bunched or retrfolex R, tons of elicitation strategies, and 5 quick drill activities to solidify the motor plan once you've achieved the R sound. It even includes quick brain breaks so there's no need for games or extraneous activities to take time away from making progress.

↠ Please note:

If you own Teaching R, there is an overlap between the two resources, but that are intended to each be their own stand-alone resource. Please read the detailed descriptions and watch the preview videos for both resources if you would like more information on the differences. If you still have any questions, I'm happy to help! You can leave questions on TpT, DM me on Instagram, or send me an email at lindsey@speechythings.com.
