I am always looking for more ways to keep my articulation students motivated.
Today, I took out a piece of poster paper, crayons, and a wind up toy!
I got this wind up toy several years ago at a Dollar Store.
First, I had my students draw and write words with their target sound. Today, we are addressing /sh/ in all positions. Then, they got to take turns using the wind up toy. If the toy stopped on a word/picture, they had to produce the word in order to receive a point. The student that reached 10 points first was the winner!!
We had so much fun today, I got administrators peaking their heads in as they walked by because they couldn’t believe there as so much fun going on in my speech room!
I bet you’re interested in another DIY activity idea, so check out this blog post about using a deck of cards in speech therapy!
