A fun alternative to articulation drills!
The following S-blends are embedded within this story:
Shredder, Slash, Snakeweed, Scumbag, Scul
Splinter, Skateboard, Sword, Staff
The story may be printed and practiced as is. The language is repetitive so after a few presentations even non-readers begin to recite the phrases, gaining practice using S-blends at the sentence level.
Or make the story interactive by printing the additional pictures of the S-Blend Scoundrels, S-blend weapons, Skateboards, and Pizza. After printing, cutting, and laminating, use velcro to have students match each image to the corresponding picture in the story.
This may even be printed in black and white for carry-over at home!
If you're looking for even more ways to incorporate articulation naturally you may like my Muncha Muncha Muncha book companion:
