My practice makes perfect board is a useful and fun board in my therapy room. The kids love it and it has eliminated all "down time" in my room.
Just keeping it real...When my therapy sessions do not start immediately (such as when we are waiting on a student to arrive) or when an adult enters my room to speak to me for any reason, my students know to go to the PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT BOARD. In fact, they jump up and get busy at the board. My artic students know to quietly practice whichever words have their sound in it. My fluency students know to say the words using their fluency shaping strategies, and my language students know to read and make sentences with as many words as they can during that time. It’s been a great tool and they love to do it! My students who do not read yet use the pictures instead of the word cards. This prevents down time during interruptions or waiting.
Don't have a traditional bulletin board? I feel your pain! I make my own very easily and cheaply. This download will tell you how.
The download also includes:
- 60 colorful word cards with the most commonly errored sounds in them
- 50 picture cards familiar to little ones who are not yet readers.
Together they make up my PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT board! My speech room will never be without one.
Just print, cut, and follow the directions in this download. You can read more about it in the August 2013 posts on my blog!
Thanks for stopping by!
