This activity was designed to be a no prep activity to target articulation and language skills in an engaging way. It is an activity that keeps students busy during practice! Make a snowman with cotton balls while practicing speech therapy objectives! Now includes a Google Slides version with moveable cotton ball pieces for a digital option!
This download contains following sounds: initial/final: p, b, m; final: n, t, d; initial/medial/final: k, g, f, v, l, s, z, ch, j, th, sh; pre-vocalic r; vocalic r (er, ar, or, air, ear, ire); rblends; lblends; sblends (separate mats for sp, st, sm, sn, sk, sl, sw, mixed). Language targets included: categories, association, object functions, compare/contrast, winter vocabulary, actions, positional vocabulary, plurals, idioms, multiple meaning words, adjectives, and antonyms/synonyms. I also included open-ended pages. First practice, then make a snowman.
*Please note: There are 14 target words on each artic page (2-3 of each, totaling 32 words).
Materials Needed: Small cotton balls, glue, and a Snowman Articulation sheet
(use the small, light cotton balls: the cheaper the better!)
Assembly: None! Print & go!
Tips: If you can, print on card stock to make it less flimsy (I use paper when I am using it with all of my groups). Tear apart the small cotton balls to make it less heavy (this can also keep hands busy in between turns).
: The student will practice the target word and then glue a cotton ball over it. Continue until the snowman is complete (therapist will determine the number of trials per word). You can have the students fill in the snowman with extra cotton balls if desired. The word/picture list on the bottom is to encourage caregivers to practice the words at home.
: These pages are more open-ended, the targets to practice are on the bottom of the page. Use at your discretion. The student can practice a skill then put on 2-3 cotton balls until the snowman is complete.
- Use bingo chips to cover up the pictures as a drill mat
- Use torn up tissue paper to create the snowman
- Use paint, crayons, or markers
