Do you need a super fun activity to keep your articulation and language students engaged? This toy companion FREEBIE will do the trick! I use this with k-5th (depending on skill level). Your students will LOVE launching frogs into the pond while practicing articulation. Initial /f/ sample

Color AND black & white! Low Prep! Ink Friendly Options!

This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation in an engaging way.

Materials Needed: Launching pad mats, plastic hopping frog toy, pond/lily pads (optional)

Optional: play dough, bingo chips, bingo dotters, crayons

I bought my frogs on Amazon Click Here to view them

You can also find these at Oriental Trading, Party Stores, and some dollar stores.

To use: Set the launching pads in front of the student (by target phoneme). I do this activity on the floor to allow more hopping space. Place the ponds and/or lily pads across from the launching pads (this will be the target). Line up the plastic hopping toys over the frogs on the mat (if you have enough, give each student different color). As they launch each frog (by pushing down on the tab on the back of the frog), the student will practice the word in the circle (the therapist will determine the number of trials per frog, 10X per frog will = 100 trials). At the end of the round, your students will count how many of their frogs landed in the pond or the lily pads (you can make it a contest!). I suggest doing a couple practice hops to gauge the distance needed for the pond.
