Speech pathologists need articulation activities that will keep their students ❤️engaged and motivated❤️ to practice throughout the entire speech therapy session.
Research shows that when a child produces a high number of repetitions with their targeted sound, the child makes larger gains with learning that sound and achieving better generalization into sentences and conversation. The research recommends getting a dose of ❤️50 trials per session, but ideally, a child that gets ❤️70 productions or higher will make the best gains.
You can use these no print /s,z/ flipbooks to get those high trials. One page on the quick articulation pictures will elicit 50 trials in less than 5 minutes. For speech pathologists working with students using a quick articulation model (shorter sessions that are more frequently seen) can easily use these flipbooks on an iPad anywhere on campus to conduct therapy.
This is the NO PRINT version of the /s,z/ Articulation Flipbooks. Here is the listing for the printable interactive articulation flipbooks for /s,z.
What is the difference between the NO PRINT and printable flipbooks?
The NO PRINT version has interactive links, so you can navigate through pages more easily on an iPad or on a computer. They are full pages, whereas the /s,z/ articulation flipbooks are half-size pages. You can still use the static version on an iPad with notability or iBooks, but it will not be as easy to navigate.
A separate listing was created as some SLPs do not want the NO PRINT option and this would raise the price on the product. You can still print this resource, but it will come out as full sheets. You can print 4 to a page if you want smaller versions.
How to use the NO PRINT /s,z/ Articulation Flipbooks:
You can use these /s,z/ articulation flipbooks as a →therapy tool, or a progress monitor data collection tool. To utilize as a therapy material, use the activities with students to get high trials during their session. You can use the word lists and quick drill picture pages to collect data. You can print out these pages on cardstock, laminate and cut out. Hole punch and adhere together with binder clips. Your students can practice their sounds using a dry erase marker (they will be so motivated using the markers.)
→When using on your iPad, you can add this to your notability app, iBooks app, or Adobe Reader app. Students can write on the flipbook pages using these apps. You can use the Kami Chrome extension to write on the PDF if using a computer or Chromebook during a teletherapy session.
How These Articulation Flipbooks Will Get You Teacher Buy-In:
Some of the activities in these flipbooks target spelling patterns and work on having the students build a short sentence, which directly addresses some of the common core standards. Teachers may be more willing to have the students practice their speech sounds during a literacy center knowing that the child is getting practice with spelling. Please advise that you should always consult with a speech pathologist before using these with a student in the classroom. Many students need to establish the correct sound production before moving into long-term practicing at the word, phrase and sentence levels.
Helpful Tips for Using the NO PRINT /s,z/ Flipbooks in Therapy:
SLPs that have large caseloads and see students in mixed groups may struggle to find that extra time to serve students individually. Use this no print articulation resource as a speech center during your group therapy time. Your student can practice their sounds with this articulation resource individually while you are helping other students in the group. When it is the student’s turn to practice with you, this is when you give feedback on productions, take data or play a 2-minute challenge game. To see how you can set up articulation stations in your therapy room, check out this blog post HERE. For more information about the traditional articulation approach, you can head to this BLOG POST. It has a free cheat sheet to download.
Use these flipbooks for your quick articulation sessions. You will get the high trials you need, and students love using dry erase markers with these flipbooks. Print out one of the pages and send home as a homework assignment. When progress monitoring is due, use the word lists to get quick data on how your students are doing with their speech productions. There are fun, free classroom timers that you can have digitally to do timed challenges to see how many words the student can produce in a minute.
