Setting Up Articulation Speech Folders For Students

Setting Up Articulation Speech Folders For Students

Recently, I polled the SLPs that follow me on Instagram to see how many of us make individual student folders for our caseloads. It was a pretty even 50/50 split of speech pathologists that do make individual folders and those that don’t.

I personally do not make individual speech folders for each child on my caseload. I use a giant therapy binder that has tabs for each child on my caseload. If I cover two schools, then I store a therapy binder at each school. 

Setting Up Articulation Speech Folders

For each student, I store their therapy logs, a communication log, their IEP-at-a-glance, and specialized data sheets as needed. Typically, I just flip back and forth between students to keep everything documented. 

However, I always have certain students that I service in a quick artic model, or I want to have some specialized visuals organized for my artic students to use when running mixed groups. In these circumstances, I will make an articulation speech folder for the individual student or the particular sound/phonological process. Today, I am going to share how you can set up your own articulation speech folders to help you streamline your therapy planning process.

Why I Make Articulation Speech Folders

Let’s face it. We have limited time for planning therapy. And sometimes we are doing our quick artic in the hallways or targeting articulation goals with mixed groups. It is hard for me to keep visuals, homework sheets, flash cards, etc. organized for my articulation students. Having all of the tools I may need in one speech folder helps me to be prepared for therapy. Planning therapy is less stressful because I can grab the folder knowing that everything I need is ready to use.

Or, if I have 3-4 students working on a certain phonological process, I can make one folder for that process and have all the speech materials I need to remediate that process. The only other thing I may need to grab is a toy, a game, or a manipulative to use with all the tools in the speech folder. 

 

Materials to Make Articulation Speech Folders

To make your speech folder, you do need some organizational materials to make it work. I am going to show you what I do, but feel free to adapt for your caseload. Amazon affiliate links are included for your convenience.

What to Include in Your Articulation Speech Folder

When setting up your articulation speech folder, you want to have an idea of where the child is performing with learning his/her sound. If the child is at the syllable level, then you can include materials and visuals for that level, as well as add in materials for the word and phrase level.

Grab these FREE Articulation Syllable Practice Sheets in my TPT store. 

This allows you to have extra materials ready in the event that the student progresses quicker than you expected. You will be ready to adapt the therapy session easily without racking your brain on what to do next.

Here are some helpful things to include in your speech folder:

-Therapy logs (I use the logs from The Speech Bubble SLP or SLP Toolkit)

-Specialized Articulation or Phonology Data Sheets to track progress. Here is my FREE Articulation Data Sheet template. If you need more specialized sheets, you can grab them HERE

– Visual Supports to help with articulation production or to increase self-awareness. You can add speech sound cue cards from Bjorem Speech in the envelope file pouch. 

-Data graphs or self-awareness visuals can be helpful to incorporate into a session. Grab some FREE articulation carryover visuals by clicking the button below.

– Word lists or materials to use for quick drill practice, like these free flash card lists for older developing sounds or my Articulation Flipbooks. Sometimes I will print up pages from my Any Craft Companion Pack and store in the speech folder. 

Homework forms that help track if the student is practicing at home. I use these ones from Kiwi Speech (FREE printable). For your students that you are creating home programs, you can have homework sheets in this folder ahead of time, so you can easily plan and track homework assignments. This is a free homework sheet once students get to the carryover level in my STORE

These FREE Articulation Homework Word List Strips by Simply Speech can be in your students folder. You can customize the word lists based on your students performance during the session and send home.

Other Helpful Forms to Include in Your Speech Folders

If you like to have an individual folder for each student, here are some forms that will help you keep things organized for each student:

FREE SLP Attendance Form by Natalie Synders

Communication Log (FREE) in Sublime Speech’s Starter Kit to document interactions with the child’s parent or teacher

Please share any other forms, visuals, or tools you would add to your articulation speech folders in the comments! You can also tag me on instagram @thedabblingspeechie with your articulation speech folder setup.

Blog Posts To Help You Plan Articulation Therapy

As busy SLPs, it is easy to struggle with ideas on how to increase repetitions or keep your students motivated with articulation practice. Here are some blog posts with ideas to make your articulation therapy productive and fun:

Articulation Stations – Therapy Ideas to Keep Students Motivated

Articulation Stations – Therapy Ideas to Keep Students Motivated

Raise your hand if you have students working on articulation in your therapy room! I think most SLPs can agree that we have a lot of those students either in a speech improvement program or on an IEP. It can be so tricky to help our articulation students make generalization progress when they are in a mixed group. One way to tackle those mixed groups is by planning an activity around all the goals. Or, you can set up station time for students. You can give your articulation students an independent activity to complete for 10-15 minutes while you provide direct instruction to the other kids in the group. And then, the kids switch.
If you are lucky to have a pure artic/phonology group, you can plan 5-10 minute station activities that your students can rotate through during the session. One of the stations can be working directly with you! This is when you can take data, check self-awareness, and get those high productions in the session.

Handy Tools and Items for Your Articulation Stations

Ultra Fine Dry Erase Markers – These are my MOST favorite and used dry erase markers (Amazon affiliate link) for any activity that has a page protector or that is a laminated resource.  Timer – Your smartphone will do just fine, but if you want something more visual, then I recommend a Time Timer or Time Tracker (Amazon affiliate links).   Clickers – For some activity stations, having a digital clicker (Amazon affiliate link) can keep kids motivated and get the higher productions that you want! 
Foam Die – This is great for kids rolling the die (Amazon affiliate link) to see how many productions they have to produce.  Magnetic Chips and Wand – These are  great tools to help kids stay motivated to keep practicing, because they can put a chip on the picture they practiced. This lets the student know how many more are left. And, my students love picking up the chips with the magnetic wand. Mini erasers, Dinky Doodad Trinkets, dot markers, or small edibles, like Skittles, are other materials to help keep kids motivated to practice.

Teaching Behavioral Expectations and Routines

In order to be successful with stations, you have to put a heavy focus on teaching the behavioral expectations and routines. Those first couple of weeks, implementing stations will be about setting the routines. If you need more information about how to set up and teach behavioral routines, then check out this blog post HERE. That said, you may know which groups might not be ready to follow a station model due to behaviors and attention spans. 

Implementing Articulation Stations in Your Therapy Room

The key to a successful articulation station is teaching the behavioral expectations and having an engaging activity. You can have the independent stations have the activities that might not get high repetitions but engage the students in thinking. Then, when the students switch to your station, you can ramp up the drill-and-kill.

Here are some therapy ideas that will help you plan effective articulation station activities:

Pipe Cleaner Articulation Station – Grab some pipe cleaners and plastic beads to have students practice their articulation words at the word, phrase, or sentence level. If you need some premade task cards for R, grab this set in my store. I also have K, G, F, V task cards.
“I Spy” Articulation Sensory Bin – You can make an “I Spy” sensory bin that can be used for articulation (it can also be used for language). Give your students an articulation mat for their sound and have them search for mini trinkets that have their speech sound. Want these mats? They are free on this blog post. Plus, all the details for how to make this interactive sensory bin are on that post. 
Articulation Letter Dough Stamps – I found these Letter Dough Stamps (link?) at Lakeshore and had to have them. You can work on spelling while your students are practicing their articulation words with play dough or kinetic sand. Check out this blog post to read more about how to make this DIY therapy activity.

Articulation Centers That Will Increase Speech Productions

Articulation Challenge – Grab your timer, a clicker, and a word list to make this articulation station. Your student sets the timer for one minute and then uses the clicker to keep track of how many productions he/she can do in that time. Then, they can set the timer again and try to beat their score. If you have two students at the station, then one student can judge productions using the Self-Rating Scale from Speechy Musings (link?) or the rating scales from my Articulation Carryover Activities Set that you can download by clicking the pink button below. 

Need some word lists? Here is a FREE download for /s, z, sh, ch, th/. I also have /r/ flashcards, as well as phonology flashcards in my TpT store. 

Abacus Articulation Station – You can buy an Abacus (Amazon affiliate link) or make your own abacus HERE to help kids stay focused on producing their sounds. Give them a word list or picture cards and have them slide a bead across for every syllable, word, or sentence production.

 

Articulation Flashcard Books – have your students make their own flashcard books with this FREE template. Grab your artic decks, or give them index cards to draw or write their speech words. As they practice the cards, they can sort which ones they said correctly and which ones they need to practice again. This helps build self-awareness for correct versus incorrect sound productions. 

Race to 100 Station – Print up a word list or use picture words while your students play Race to 100. Whatever the die lands on, that is how many words your student has to practice. Grab this free printable and see more pics in action HERE. Mommy Speech Therapy has FREE colored picture word lists for this station. 

Articulation Flip Books – Use my articulation flip books as a station. They are designed for different levels, and students can hit a lot of productions. My students love using a dry erase marker. The flip books are predictable, so the kids stay focused and on- task. Grab these flip books HERE

Sentence Level Articulation Stations for Therapy

 Students at the sentence level can still do an articulation challenge with repetitive sentences. If you need articulation resources for the sentence level, here are some that I created:

Sentence Articulation Challenge Sheets (No Prep). Click to grab these!

No Prep Articulation Sentence Practice.  Click to grab these!

 

Use Articulation Apps as An Articulation Station

iPad Articulation Station – If you own an iPad, or if your district gives you one, then using some interactive articulation apps as a station is a great option.

Here are some that I really like:

What Articulation Activities Can You Turn into a Station?

 

What activities do you already have prepped that you can turn into an articulation station? I would love to know any quick artic activities you use with your students. I am always looking for ways to motivate my students to practice. Share in the comments below. 

Using Letter Stamps in Speech Therapy

Using Letter Stamps in Speech Therapy

I am always on the hunt for materials that are easy to prep and will help engage my students while they are working toward their goals. A good worksheet or set of flashcards will definitely produce positive outcomes in the therapy room, but my kids seem to produce so much more work when the activity is hands-on.

Letter Stamps Can Increase Engagement

Today, I want to show you how you can use letter stamps in speech therapy. It won’t make a huge mess and will be easy to carry around for you traveling SLPs, or those SLPs who do quick artic in the hallways.

Amazon affiliate links are included in this blog post for your convenience. I get a small compensation when you click on the link and purchase the item.

Where to Find Letter Stamps for Speech Therapy

Last summer, I found these plastic Letter Stamps from Lakeshore Learning and had to have them! You can also snag some on Amazon from Discount School Supply. There is also Mad Mattr dough that never dries out and has a fun consistency. I bought the upper alphabet set that comes with numbers and letters. If you need more playdough ideas for therapy, head to this BLOG POST (it includes FREE mats to use with playdough).

Making Your Traveling Letter Stamp Kit

You will need the set of letter stamps, a pencil box or small container, and playdough or kinetic sand. I put some playdough in the pencil box and was ready for therapy!

How to Use Letter Stamps in Speech Therapy

There are several ways SLPs can use letter stamps in speech therapy. Here are some of my favorite ideas for articulation/phonology therapy:

Have your student use the letter that correlates with his/her sound and stamp it each time that he/she producing the sound in syllables or words. I know that not all the sounds match the letters perfectly, but it works for most of them. You can get in lots of drill with this! If you need some stimulus task cards for prevocalic R, r-blends, and vocalic R words, grab this Articulation Letter Stamp Station HERE. I also have a blends version you can grab HERE

More Ways to Use Letter Stamps

You can read words, single sentences, or a story out loud to your student. Your student can stamp his/her sound letter every time he/she hears her sound.

Use the B, M, E stamp letters in the kinetic sand. Say a word to your student and have him/her identify which position your student hears his/her words. This will work on sound awareness and also phonological awareness skills.

Make an Articulation Station

If you are working with mixed groups and need some dedicated time to baseline/progress monitor other students or just need a good solid 10 minutes to teach a new concept to a student in the group, you can create articulation stations with activities that keep the students focused on his/her goals independently. You may need to teach the behavioral expectations when implementing stations those first few weeks. If you need a framework for how to do that, head to this BLOG POST.

Give your students a task card with pictures and the spelling of the words. Have them stamp out each word in the playdough. Then, they have to practice that sound 5 times or write it in a sentence. Then, the student can take those sentences home to practice or use the next session as a warm-up!

Phonological Awareness Activities With Letter Stamps

With the number stamps, you can have students identify the number of syllables in a word for phonological awareness or working on breaking down multi-syllable words.

You can also work on building phonemic awareness by having students stamp out real or nonsense CVC words in the playdough/kinetic sand. Then, have your students work on substituting sounds to make new word combinations. Or have them add or delete sounds to create new sounds.

Using Letter Stamps with Language Therapy

When you are working on describing nouns by attributes (i.e. category, function, size, color, texture, parts, etc.), you can have your student stamp a number for each attribute they share. This will allow them to visually see how many attributes they provided. You can visually and verbally give feedback when they provide more attributes.

Students can identify if a phrase is true/false using the T and F letter stamps.

Using Letter Stamps To Visually Cue Students

For your students working on monitoring social behavior in a group session, you can stamp an E for expected behavior and a U for unexpected behavior during the session. This can visually cue the student to monitor his/her behavior without stopping the lesson. Plus, you will have some data on how often you had to cue them. You can also give the student a social situation and have them stamp E if the behavior was expected or U if the behavior was unexpected.

Share How You Would Use Letter Stamps in Speech Therapy

The best way to get the most out of a material item is to collaborate with other like-minded professionals. That is why I always want to know how you would use a material in therapy. When I have more ideas, therapy feels fresh and new with my groups. If you use letter stamps in speech therapy, please share how you use them in the comments or email me at feliceclark@thedabblingspeechie.com.

Also, I love seeing therapy pics in action, so feel free to tag me on Instagram with your letter stamps @thedabblingspeechie.

Articulation Carryover Ideas To Support Self Monitoring

Articulation Carryover Ideas To Support Self Monitoring

Do you find that once you establish the articulation sound in words and even carrier phrases, your students struggle with articulation carryover outside the speech room? And you struggle with articulation carryover in spontaneous conversational activities? One of the biggest struggles SLPs face with articulation therapy is helping students learn to carry over that skill into all areas of the student’s life.

Articulation carryover visuals to help self monitoring skills in speech therapy. Great for articulation therapy to use with any articulation carryover activity

What is Articulation Carryover?

A lot of my articulation carryover learning has come from the book Carryover Techniques (in Articulation & Phonology Therapy) by Pam Marshala. You can grab the book on her website or find it on Amazon HERE (Amazon affiliate link). It is a very insightful and helpful resource for the SLP that includes practical evidence an SLP can use tomorrow.

Articulation carryover means that a student is able to correctly produce their sounds in the following ways:

    • All types of words and in all positions of words
    • All phonemes, and can mark morphemes where applicable: plurals, possessives, etc.
    • In all types of spoken literatures: songs, poems, paragraphs, chapters, etc.
    • For all pragmatic purposes: protesting, negotiating, informing, commenting, questioning, etc.
    • When speaking in all locations: home, school, store, recess, sports practice, etc.
  • When speaking to all communication partners: family, teachers, friends, neighbors, etc.

Basically, the end goal is that we want our students to carry over the skills taught in the speech room across a lot of different speaking situations.

Why is Carryover Difficult for Students?

Learning a new skill that requires a student to change a pattern or habit is difficult. Think about a habit or pattern that you are trying to change in your own life. Reflect on the emotions and challenges you face with implementing the new skill. Let’s use waking up 30 minutes earlier each day. Humans don’t necessarily like drastic changes and when we are trying to make new habits, it requires us to practice and implement skills that are uncomfortable to us.

What is Self Monitoring?

Self-monitoring when your student is aware of his/her speech productions and whether he/she is making the production correctly. Ideally, we want our students to be self-monitoring their speech during the session, but more importantly, in the classroom and out in the community.

Articulation Carryover Visuals To Support Self Monitoring

One way for SLPs to help with generalization in articulation therapy is to improve a child’s ability to self-monitor their productions. Articulation Carryover visuals to support self-monitoring have created an opportunity for me to have discussions about a student’s productions. Using articulation carryover visuals has given my students a way to self-reflect on their performance, set goals for improvement, and figure out ways they can work on their articulation productions outside of the speech room.

Ideas For How to Improve Self Monitoring Skills

Here are some ideas for how SLPs can help improve their student’s self-monitoring skills in articulation therapy:

    • Videotape your student during a conversational task. Have your student use the self-reflection sheet in the free download below to evaluate how their speech sounded.

 

    • Have your student identify errors in the SLP to make sure they can auditorily discriminate between a correct and incorrect production.

 

  • Brainstorm with your student times during the school day and outside of school that they want to improve their speech.

    • Use the emoji progress monitor sheet to set a goal with your student during a speaking task (they can start with 6-10 errors). Have them chart their progress and discuss whether they met their goal. Discuss what helped them or got in their way of using correct productions.

 

  • Students can chart their progress each session. The SLP and student can have a discussion about their productions and then make a goal for the next session.

More Ways To Improve Self Monitoring Skills in Your Students

    • Work with the teacher and student to think of some ways the student can practice his/her speech in the classroom environment. This can better help you plan lessons to practice those skills in the speech room. For example, if your student wants to practice at the library, you can create a script that he/she can practice during your speech session. Then, when the student goes to the library, he/she will know what to say when checking out a book, taking the cognitive load off of what to say. The student can then focus more on the sound productions during that interaction.

 

  • One other suggestion that Van Riper shares is that self-monitoring may increase if you have your student work on his/her speech while doing other simple activities at the same time. So, you could plan a craft for the session and have the student work on his/her speech during conversation. Or better yet, build something with LEGOs, play a game, or draw a picture scene.

What Types of Homework Should You Be Sending Home?

    • Try to get parent involvement for practicing speech in a variety of conversational tasks. Give the parents a progress monitoring sheet and a list of speaking ideas to practice during the week. HERE is a FREE homework printable sheet that I send home with families.

 

    • Pick a variety of conversational tasks for students to practice their speech in the session. Students can practice comparing/contrasting nouns, answering comprehension questions from a story, summarize a video, and have a conversation with a peer. Read more about these ideas HERE.

 

  • Give the student speech assignments in which he/she has to practice his/her speech outside of the therapy room and report back next session. For example, you can have your student practice his/her speech when playing four square at recess. The next session, the student can report about how his/her speech productions were during that social interaction.

 

Tips for Managing the Carryover Process

    1. Be patient. Charles Van Riper advises that SLPs should not rush the carryover process. It will take time to see and make changes.
    1. Teachers, parents, caregivers, peers, and teacher aides can help support your student’s carryover into new environments. Not all people in the student’s environment will be helpful with promoting carryover. Sometimes certain people should not be in the carryover process at all.
    1. Have a contract with your older students, which will help with accountability. It can also be helpful for showing the IEP team why a student is, or is not, making progress on his/her goals. If the student isn’t putting in the work to practice, it will affect his/her progress.

 

    1. Have a chart that documents a student’s progress, which can help him/her see that the work he/she is doing is beneficial. When students can report about specific situations they struggle with communicating, you can better serve them. You can brainstorm certain words that were difficult for them. And, you can also highlight words that they pronounced correctly!

 

  1. Be mindful of your student’s self-esteem and desires. Your student may or may not want you or other school staff correcting his/her speech in certain situations. It is great to have a discussion about how they want to be given feedback, or ways the teacher or SLP can give non-verbal feedback.

Considerations for Working on Carryover With Students That Have Intellectual Disabilities

Students with lower cognitive skills must be taught very specific skills under very specific circumstances because generalizing is difficult for them. It would be very helpful to know what the student needs to communicate about, and then teach those specific skills in the speech room as well as encourage the classroom staff to work on communication skills. For example, to help a student improve his/her communication intelligibility in the classroom, you can create a conversational script for different activities. In speech you can practice the correct pronunciation of the words needed to use the restroom at the word level, in sentence, and then when practicing the script.

Need More Resources & Therapy Ideas to Help With Planning Carryover Ideas?

For my students working on their sound beyond the word or sentence level, I like to have interactive lessons that can also be used with my language-impaired students. Check out my blog post for resources and therapy ideas HERE. If you are trying to get higher word repetitions and still want to keep the therapy session engaging, I recommend checking out this POST. It is filled with easy ways you can increase articulation repetitions in a fun way!    

Need CEU Hours and Want to Learn More About Articulation Carryover

I took Pam Marshalla’s Carryover Techniques in Articulation and Phonology Course on Speech Therapy PD for CEUs and it was very helpful. It was practical and helped me to feel confident with how to provide with students in articulation therapy.

Use my code: SLPROCKSTAR to get $10 off either Speech Therapy PD subscription. I love that I can spend under $100 a year and get a ton of practical training and my CEUs covered!

 

Spooky, Crawly Spider Activities For Speech

Spooky, Crawly Spider Activities For Speech

In real life, I am not a fan of spiders, or any creepy insects for that matter. If I see a spider crawl out of a cupboard or found in a dark corner in a bag in the garage, I literally freak out like someone is attacking me!

Can you relate? In our old house, our garage was known to have black widows, so if I saw one of those gnarly things, I went into a panic: hurry, kill it quick! Daddy long legs and small spiders don’t seem to bring on the panic, but when I hear people say that humans actually eat 8 spiders a year in their sleep, it kinda wants to make me gag. Who knows if that statistic is even true, but I don’t really want to think about it at the moment.

Spider activities in speech for elementary SLPs

Anyways, the whole reason I bring up “spiders” is to tell you that it is a great theme to use in your speech therapy room. There are lots of great books, crafts, YouTube videos and activities you can use to work on speech and language skills. As long as they are fake, spiders are allowed in my therapy room. How about you? Today I am going to be sharing about spider activities for speech that can be your October theme–this is especially helpful if your school is not able to plan Halloween activities. If you need some Halloween ideas for therapy, check out some of my previous blog posts for therapy ideas:

Spider Book Recommendations for Speech

There are some really great books with spiders as the main character that you can use in speech. Here are some of my favorites to use in therapy:

Aaarrggh Spider by Lydia Monk (affiliate link) is a great story about a spider that wants to be this family’s pet. It is great for answering comprehension questions and story retell. It also works on perspective taking and how the spider feels verses the family. The spider doesn’t understand why the family freaks out every time they see him.

spider activities for speech using engaging spider story books for kids!

The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle (affiliate link) is a great book to work on sequencing and teach verbs such as “spin,” “ride,” “eat,” and “run.” This book is also great for teaching the animal category. You can use the pictures in the book to work on describing the animals by attributes and what they are doing or where they are located.

Spider Activities For Speech

Students can use spider webs while working on their speech and language targets.

Use no prep spider activities for speech to reinforce students in mixed groups.

You can do spider races to work on go/stop (CORE vocab), target the verb “blow”, and teach the basic concept “across”. Read this blog post for more pics and details.spider activities for speech

For your students working on functional communication and language skills, use a Visual Recipe from Live Love Speech to make this adorable spider snack. I loved having the visuals to target wh-questions, and vocabulary. Then, while the kids eat their snack, we tried to get some natural conversation going.

Using Spider Crafts In Speech

spider activities in speech using a fun craft that can be adapted across goals. Use this spider craft to target a lot of goals.

Make a crawly spider in speech. Students can practice following directions while making this spider craft. You just cut out black circles for the head, get the spider face printable on this blog post (free printable), and then cut black strips of construction paper (affiliate link). The students fold the construction paper back and forth to make the legs. You can work on simple sequencing of how to make the craft, practice the basic concepts “on”, “before”, and “after” while doing the craft. After creating the craft, you can work on asking which pictures are near the spider’s head and far from the spider’s head.

Students can glue speech or language targets on the spider’s leg. Keep the spider crafts as decor or use them as the warm up for the next session. Send them home for additional practice. I used my Any Craft Companion Pack to have targets for the craft. If you are short on prep time, have students write their targets using white crayon or colored pencil.

I love this synonym spider craft from Nicole Allison! It is functional and great for decor/vocabulary review. You just need pipe cleaners, paper plates and the free printables from Nicole (affiliate links included).

YouTube Videos With Spiders To Use In Speech

If you have been following me on social media and my blog for a while, then you will know how much I LOVE Simon’s Cat videos on YouTube. The videos are like a movie comic strip that are non-verbal, so they are very versatile for speech and language therapy. Check out this blog post for more details about how I adapt these videos across grades and skills.

This past week I used these videos with my 4-6th grade students to work on a number of language skills: using the vocabulary word “predict,” perspective taking skills for the characters emotions, thought bubbles, sequencing the video with grammatically correct sentences, connecting words (first, next, last) as well as descriptive language.

Scishowkids makes a pretty good argument about why we shouldn’t be afraid of spiders. This is a great video to discuss main idea and details from a video. You can work on vocabulary tasks with the words “afraid,” “jump,” and “spin.”
