I've been trying to find a way to encourage classroom practice for my middle school artic students in that reading/generalization stage. The students go to 6 different classes in a day and teachers have a lot going on without me adding to their workload. In order to get teachers on board, I made this as simple as can be for them!
1. The student takes as many slips as he/she wants at the end of the speech session. I (the speech therapist) fill out the student name and target on the top of the card.
2. The student is responsible for delivering the card to his/her teachers at the beginning of whichever classes they plan on focusing on their speech (up to them to choose). I tell my students that it is their job to make their speech stand out to the teacher!
3. The teacher then circles 1, 2, or 3 for effort and accuracy, initials where indicated, and hands the card back to the student.
4. Again, the student has the responsibility of making sure they get the completed card at the end of class. If the student wants the extra speech points, they must return it to me!
There are 4 different borders for a little added fun. I like to print on colored paper so they don't get lost in the shuffle (or on the teacher's desk).
This could easily work with fluency, voice, or pragmatics goals as well. Maybe even language goals! Some students will buy into this, and some won't. But for those that do, it's an easy way to encourage them to practice outside of the speech room! Let me know your thoughts and if this works for your students and campus!
