Roll + Color: Early Developing Speech Sounds

I have finally finished a new product!  This is a fun way to practice those speech sounds all-year.  It's a "Roll + Color" which is part of a series of materials I will be making in the short future!  I love fun materials using dice... It just makes articulation therapy more fun for everyone involved! There 40 pages of are two levels; "Level 1" is made up of easier words and "Level 2" is made up of more difficult (longer) words.  Sounds addressed in this packet are K/G, F/V and T/D.

Quick Tip Tuesday!

It's Tuesday!  I am sharing two tips this week. Link up and share your quick tips for speech and language!

Articulation Tricks {My Experience}

Over the years, I've had the pleasure of working with countless students with articulation disorders.  The most common speech sounds I seem to work on are /s/ and /r/. They both can be tricky suckers...sometimes I really do get frustrated teaching them.  However, when one of my students does produce an approximation for the first time, I feel like there is happy music playing and fireworks going off in my speech room! {I'm sure people walking by are wondering what on earth I am cheering about!} It. Is. Awesome.  Here are some tricks I use to elicit these, at times difficult, speech sounds.
