Are you a speech-language pathologist that loves to incorporate your students' curriculum into your therapy sessions or are you a classroom teacher looking for ways to support your students' IEP goals within your classroom? The Base Ten Articulation Challenge is a wonderful addition to the SLP toolbox as well as for classroom teachers as a means to support the IEP articulation needs of students in your classroom. This is also a great addition to your evidence binder to demonstrate your ability to link therapy practices to the general curriculum in an individualized manner.
Targets included: /k/, /f/, /l/, /s/, /s/ blends, /r/, /vocalic r/, /arla/, /erla/, /earla/, and bonus language target- categories
The Speech Loves Base Ten Articulation Challenge promotes literacy and acquisition of high frequency words, and supports math content standards through an interactive, engaging articulation activity that can be utilized in the speech therapy as well as regular classroom setting.
Print double sided on card stock with phoneme label on one side and base ten blocks on the other side. This will both save paper and the hassle of cutting anything out – Hooray!
- You may also choose to access this pdf and view it on your tablet/device if you would like to go the print-free route and toggle between sounds for your students.
The word selection consists of high frequency word to both aid in carryover of targeted skills and provide words that promote literacy and independence at an early level.
- Glue candy hearts onto popsicle sticks and place them in a can. The students then complete the base ten task listed on the color drawn. In the event there are 2 of the same color left on the player’s card, he/she chooses the highest number first. The object of the game is to complete every base ten representation. At the very minimum, if the student fills their challenge card without repeating a base ten group more than once they would elicit 55 productions (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10=55). However, the odds are in heavily weighted in YOUR favor that they will repeat groups more than once.
Allow students to collect an actual candy heart when they complete a base ten combination.
Have students use real dice to determine which combination to say or create virtual dice using “Make Dice Lite” app (currently free) on your iPad.
