This blog is soooooo creative, and the posts are coming from a Speech/Language Therapist! Even though articulation is difficult for the classroom teacher to monitor and coach consistently, many of these ideas can be used to improve language skills--something that most of our at-risk students need!

Speech Room News: Another pocket chart activity. Fill the pocket chart with articulation cards. Pass the Hot Potato! Catch him on your turn and read 3 cards and pull them out, then toss the potato again! PreK- K would love.
Speech Room News: organization. She suggests: "I used a pocket chart and a over-the door hanger with them. I printed all the sounds, laminated them and then bound them with a book ring. For common sounds, like the /r/, I made many copies of the artic packets. For less common sounds, I just made a few. So when kids come into the room, I can ask them to grab the packet for their sound."
Bazinga. Use library pocket cards and any kind of educational playing cards. Place one card in each pocket and a silly card (cartoon character, etc) in 3 of the other pockets. As the student tries to find the cartoon character, they pull out other cards and have to do what they say (math problems, sight words, quiz questions, etc.). Once they find the special cards they yell Bazinga!
