Are you working on /R/ at the reading/and or sentence level with a student? Are you looking for an engaging reading packet where your student can practice their /R/ sounds and learn something new? This packet is just what you are looking for.

This packet has (all with a focus on vocalic /r/ articulation reading) with a mosquito theme:

  • Vocalic /r/ sentences (10 for each type of vocalic /r/, for a total of 60 sentences)
  • 3 Readings, each with vocabulary terms and comprehension questions
  • 3 SLP data sheets (organized by total or vocalic /r/ sounds - with the /r/ sounds counted up for you)
  • A print and go (or screenshot and go) one-page homework sheet for your students

Each reading also comes with vocabulary words and definitions and comprehension questions so students can practice their articulation skills in structured Q & A activities after the reading. This is perfect for groups or for screen sharing since each single page includes everything you need (readings, vocabulary words, and comprehension questions).
