I am always searching for fun ways to use dollar store items in my speech room. Today, I used my Target Halloween bins, package of bats I got from a dollar store, index cards, a mirror, and Natalie Snyder's brilliant idea of a disposable dental floss.
I took 3 bins, and labeled them beginning, middle, and end. I gave my student a dental floss (and a tissue to place it on — that is KEY!), a mirror, and a set of 10 bats.
My student had to listen to the /r/ word I provided, and distinguish the location of the target sound. Then, he had to repeat the word as he threw the various bats into the correct bin.
What did this accomplish?
- Tons of auditory bombardment
- 10 productions for each target word
