Target articulation with a functional and engaging activity that revolves around a favorite topic for kids....food! Each of these 21 menus is loaded with one sound/blend (restaurant name, location, and a variety of foods and drinks) throughout. There are pictures for each food/drink so this resource works great even if your student cannot read. Each menu comes with 2 versions: full color for your iPad/computer AND blackline and white for low-ink printing if desired. There are also a variety of activity ideas/worksheets included, but there are many articulation and language goals that can be targeted (see below).
★★ The are included and can be targeted at the word, level, phrase, reading or conversational levels:
/m, n, p, b, t, d, k, g, s, z, f, v, sh, th, ch, j, r, l/ and BLENDS: /s, l, r/
In addition to articulation practice, these menus can be used in the following ways:
★ Social Skills:
Students can role play being at a restaurant and ordering food/drinks from a waiter. There is a script included in this resource, or students can make up their own.
Students can tell the foods they like and those they don’t like (“I like noodles, but I don’t like chili.”)
★ Following Directions/Auditory Memory:
Students can listen to each other (or the teacher/SLP) order and then circle or tell what’s being ordered. This can be simple (1-2 foods) or more complex (3+ foods).
Students can practice asking and answering questions (such as “what would you like to order?” or “What’s your favorite fruit?”).
★ Money Skills:
Students can practice adding the costs of the food and paying with play money/checks.
