Are you a classroom teacher looking for a way to incorporate your students' speech-language goals into your classroom while reinforcing the CCSS?

Are you a SLP who would like to provide carry over activities in a lending library for your classroom teachers that can double as therapy activities during your sessions? Do you need activities that can support and provide RTI data?

Do your students enjoy having fun during hand-on learning activities?

If you can answer yes to any of the above, this activity is for you!

Sight Word Tangrams are an innovative way to incorporate speech-language in your classroom, while targeting reading, speaking and math common core standards. Sight words are sorted by speech sound or phoneme, all supported with a visual representation to enhance independence and retention of learned skills. Incorporate your own classroom manipulatives to have students build tangrams represented or use the templates provided to create your own. Each tangram includes visual representations of the sight words which are coded by level (pre-primer, primer) as well as a visual model of the speech sound featured in various positions of words within the tangram. The assessment notebooks include multiple data entry opportunities per student as well as placement cues that the teacher can use to help the student correctly produce the targeted sound. This is an excellent resource for both Response to Intervention and carryover of articulation skills within the classroom setting. Every student in the classroom can benefit from this activity which engages all while optimizing differentiation (check that off on your eval!). You can even use this as a classroom incentive if you would like by having students earn pieces of a particular tangram towards a chosen reward as they master sight words.
