Do you want to get your articulation students engaged in therapy? You NEED this product! Perfect for elementary aged students (and some middle school depending on interests!).

This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation in an engaging way. These pages are no-prep (print & go). This sample includes pre-vocalic r and /er/ pages.

The full pack includes the following sounds: initial/medial/final: k, g, f, v, l, s, z, ch, j, th, sh; pre-vocalic r; vocalic r (er, ar, or, air, ear, ire); rblends; lblends; sblends (separate mats for sp, st, sm, sn, sk, sl, sw, mixed). First practice, then build a picture out of building bricks. This is great for older students working on articulation skills (for younger students you can assist them with the activity or you can use my other building brick product “Earn Your Bricks”).

More sets coming SOON! Stay tuned!

Please note: There are 12-14 target pictures on each page (they are duplicated to fill up the image).

Materials Needed:

Apple image: (14) 4 dot length red building bricks (4) 2 dot length red building bricks, (4) 3 dot length red building bricks, (2) 2 dot white building bricks, (1) 3 dot length brown building brick, (1) 4 dot length green building brick, and (1) 2 dot length green building brick. Building brick base (optional). You will also need the corresponding Let’s Build Articulation mat with the desired target phoneme. I bought a big set of generic colored building bricks on Amazon.

Optional Assembly: You can also place in a sheet protector or laminate to use with play dough.

To use: There are two ways to use these pages.

Simple version: The students will practice the word on the brick and then cover it up with the matching building brick toy. When

they are finished they will have a completed image on their page. The therapist will determine the number of trials per image.

Challenging version: The student will build the image on a building brick base and use the page as a guide. As they practice the words on the bricks they will color them or draw an X on them so they keep track of the bricks they have built. At the end, all of the bricks on the page should be crossed out and they should have a completed image built on the building base. The therapist will determine the number of trials per image.

Extension Activities to incorporate some language skills.

  • Use the included define/describe visuals and have the students define/describe

the object they built.

  • Have the student try to draw the building brick image using the blank template mat
  • Have the student write a sentence with the object they built.
