Quick & Easy Articulation Activities for Speech Therapists
12 Game Ideas to Try Today!
Let’s face it…articulation activities can be dull and boring. The constant repetition and correcting is enough to drive anyone mad. I set out on a mission to find articulation activities that make drills more fun for everyone. In this post, I’m going to show you a few of my favorites!
To start, you will need to download your cards. If you haven’t done so already CLICK HERE to get your free copy of my “Feed the Monkey” articulation game. Along with the adorable monkey and banana cutouts, you will receive 15 full color articulation cards for /s/.
Pictures for all of the other sounds you might need to target in artic therapy are available in my store. CLICK HERE to read more about the Print & Go Articulation Value Bundle.
Instant Articulation Activities
This “learn to earn” idea is one of my favorites! Many of my little ones are extremely motivated by small trinkets or “treasures” as a reward for correct productions.
Gather your motivators and hide them under any small containers (plastic party cups/bowls work perfectly for this activity.) Place an articulation card on top of each and let your students get to work. When they’ve said the target word correctly, they can lift the cup and check for a prize.
Articulation cards are ideal for sensory bin activities. Here we’ve used split peas, but you can use any dry, non-sticky material such as beans, rice, or even dirt (if you don’t mind the mess of course!) Keep little hands busy and have them dig for their targets…makes the work fun & functional doesn’t it?!
We’ve all got building blocks of some sort lying around. Have your students take turns practicing their sounds while stacking or fitting the pieces together. If yours students are anything like mine, you might be careful with this one….you might end up building an entire city!
This guy is always greeted with a smile in my speech room! Help your spud buddy get dressed while practicing target sounds.
Your students will have so much fun playing, they’ll forget that they are working. This alleviates the frustration that often comes with articulation therapy.
CLICK HERE if you need to pick up the complete set of articulation cards to cover 24 sounds PLUS print & go homework sheets.
As you will see in the images below, these cute cards can breathe new life into just about any toy or game you already have in your speech room.
