Have you been hitting some walls with finding articulation activities for the sentence and conversation levels?
Nothing drags me down more than not having engaging activities for my articulation students. Plus, if I don’t have articulation materials that can help me collect data on productions, I start to sweat bullets as the progress reports become due.
That’s why I love finding articulation picture scenes that are loaded with sound opportunities for my students. Using picture scenes to work on articulation can help you get those high trials in a session and keep your students motivated to practice in a session.
Articulation picture scenes as a progress monitoring tool for connected speech! They can be quick to administer and give ya the data you need to share a student’s progress on goals.
For my students with 1-2 sound errors, I tend to follow a traditional articulation approach. You can check out the stages in this blog post.
FREE Picture Scenes to Use for Articulation Therapy
Don’t you just want to tell everyone when you find a good, FREE activity that will cover your therapy goals for weeks? I know I sure do!On the Facebook Page, OMAZing Kids, there are LOTS of free picture scenes.
You can save these as JPGs on your computer and upload them to a Google Slide. If you right click and select “change background,” you can choose the picture scene image to make the background of the Google Slide be the picture scene.
In the notes section of the Google Slide, you can write a list of target words that can be used to describe the picture scene by sound to reference when you use it with a student.
Sound Loaded Articulation Picture Scenes for Carryover
When I have students at the sentence level that need to start moving over into more spontaneous conversation, I like to use sound loaded picture scenes to help create increased opportunities to practice the target sound.
Using sound loaded articulation scenes has been great to use with my students who are not yet reading, but need to practice their sound in multiple sentences.
All of my No Print and printable articulation flipbooks contain two picture scenes per sound.
These picture scenes have helped me with taking data on goals as well as a quick probe to see if the sounds are emerging into new positions.
