This activity was designed to be a open-ended, no-prep activity to target any goal or objectives.
This download contains 3 thumbprint spider templates. It also contains a sample of my articulation pack (initial k) specifically made for speech therapy sessions.

The full articulation pack 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, xmixed). First practice, then make a thumbprint spider!

Materials Needed: Ink pad or paint, Spider Thumbprint pages

Optional Assembly: You can also place in a sheet protector or laminate to use with play dough.

To use: The student will practice a goal/objective and then make a thumbprint spider on the web. The student will place their thumb on an ink pad and then stamp it on the web. Then using a black marker, the student will draw on eight legs. Use this as a reinforcer during any activity!

Use paint instead of ink
Use play dough to smash to make spiders.
Use bingo chips to place over the webs.
Use bingo dotters (and then draw eight legs on the dot).
