Wind Up Articulation DIY Fun!

· ·
Sometimes you just need to DIY an activity in your speech room. I'm sharing this wind up articulation DIY activity that we did - super simple and super fun!

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.

Sometimes you just need to DIY an activity in your speech room. I'm sharing this wind up articulation DIY activity that we did - super simple and super fun!

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!
