This September packet is included in the Year Round Puzzle BUNDLE
Puzzle packets for articulation therapy are low prep and use no color ink! I recommend allowing the students to color the puzzle image BEFORE you cut the page into strips in order to make it easier to complete the puzzle. Another option is to color it after cutting out the puzzle and piecing it back together. (This is the more difficult method.) If you chose the second option, many students will need to see the picture before the page is cut into 10 strips or have the mini pictures page at the end of this packet to reference while putting their puzzle together. After practicing the target words the desired number of times, students may glue the strip down on a full sheet of paper/construction paper. Students may also choose to take the strips home (paper clipped together) and practice completing the puzzle at home with parents to promote carryover. The puzzles are in black and white for students to color.
Sounds targeted in the product include: p, b, m, n, t, d, h, w, k, g, f, v, s, z, s-blends, l-blends, r-blends, prevocalic r, vocalic r, l, ch, sh, th, and J. Most phonemes include 3 pages with 10 target words in initial, medial, and final positions. (Phonemes with only one page: w, h, v, r-blends, prevocalic r, vocalic r, and J). There are also 3 pages without target words in this packet for you to personalize to fit individual students' speech/language goals.

National Teddy Bear Day: September 9th (phonemes in final position)
National Talk Like A Pirate Day: September 19th (phonemes in medial position)
