I love the idea of Mad Libs® but always struggle with coming up with articulation targets to use in therapy.
Silly Story Articulation/Carryover allows you to choose the articulation targets based on initial, medial and final word position for the following sounds: /s/, /l/, /f/, /v/, J, TH, SH, and CH. It's a quick, no prep activity to target individual word production up through spontaneous speech!
Each of the targeted word lists contains the target phonemes separated by noun, verb, adjective and adverb. Vocabulary ranges from basic (lion) to more advanced (apathetic.) This activity would also work well in a blended group to address vocabulary.
Note: final word lists do not contain adverbs since most adverbs end in -ly vs. the target articulation sound.
You asked and I listened!
This product was updated in December 2016 to include new fonts as well as 6 fill in the blank stories for targeted words. You can also use these word lists with traditional Mad Libs® products or with online fill in the blank stories

SLPs who have used this product say…
"Came in handy when I needed to target "th" with a student while using wackywebtales.com."
"It's always great to find another way to make carryover fun!"
"I used this product during the beginning of the school year with Mad Libs I got at the Dollar Store. I used this product with more than one client due to the fact that it includes multiple sounds! What was even better was that I could use it for students working on both articulation and language goals at the same time!"
“I love Mad Libs too...these word banks are a perfect way to help my student practice their targeted sounds without me having to come up with words on the fly! My students love Mad Libs and I am keeping busy with trying to stay ahead of them with new ones for them to complete!!”
