Summer Beach Articulation Dough Smash Mats are an interactive articulation game that uses Play dough to engage the students.
Each beach scene contains the same target words as Spring Articulation Dough Smash Mats. The card decks from that product can be used with the Beach Smash Mats.
Summer Beach Articulation Dough Mats includes 13 beach themed smash mats and 13 sound decks that correspond with the beach smash mats. There is one beach mat for each of the following initial sounds: K, G, F, V, S, Th, Sh, Ch, L, R, S blends, L blends and R blends. This allows students working on different sounds to participate using the same activity.
1.) Laminate the beach smash mats and the sound decks.
2.) Cut out the sound decks on the dotted line.
3.) Give each student a beach and play dough.
4.) Place the sound decks on the table face down.
5.) Each student selects a card from the table and practices the word.
6.) If the student has the picture on their beach they cover it with dough.
7.) If the student does not have the picture they give it to the student who does. Then that student practices the word and covers it with dough..
8.) The first student to cover their card with dough wins.
This can also be used with crazy sand. Cover the card and dig for the picture or make something with the sand and cover the picture.
Alternate: Cover the pictures using small toys or chips
