Smash mats have been THE most motivating activity for my students. I have been working hard to make some for almost every goal on my caseload! I have quite a few students demonstrating final consonant deletion, so I wanted to create a fun, engaging activity for them! This has worked like a charm!
To use: print and laminate the smash mats. A page protector works as well if you don’t have access to a laminator. Smash a ball of play dough on the picture after your student practices the target word. They can also make up a sentence for the word if their goals are higher than single words. If you don’t have play dough, bingo chips, mini erasers, and candy work well too!
These are perfect to send home with the child for homework!
Included are mats for the following sounds in the final position:
P, B, T, D, N, K, G, F, V, S, Z, R, L, SH, CH, TH
