Speech Therapy just got a bit cooler with these ice cream smash mats for articulation and language skills!
Ice Cream Smash Mats
This play dough mat packet includes 71 pages targeting 24 different phonemes, 3 and 4-syllable words, and language targets. A smash mat without targets is included for you to customize. Students smash balls of play dough to make an ice cream cone after the desired number of trials of each target word. Students may also use the mats to design ice cream cones/ invent fun new flavors using crayons/markers as an alternative to play dough.
This packet contains 56 interactive articulation pages for the following sounds/targets: P, B, T, D, M, N, H, W, Y, F, V, K, G, S, Z, S-blends, L, L-Blends, Vocalic R, Prevocalic R, SH, CH, TH, J, 3-Syllable Words, and 4-Syllable Words.
There are 10 language pages target the following skills: Regular Verbs, Irregular Verbs, Synonyms/Antonyms, Regular Plural, Irregular Plural, Emotions, Rhyming, Categories, Compare & Contrast, Descriptions, and Multi-meaning Words.
NOTE: Save prep time by using page protectors for the smash mats instead of laminating each page.
Play dough smash mats are a great way to improve fine motor skills while still addressing speech & language targets. This resource is ideal for co-treating with occupational therapy!
