A couple of years ago I got really sick of printing and cutting out sound based picture stimuli over and over again, so I came up with a permanent solution…artic buckets!
My idea was to create a set of pictures for each of the most popular sounds that could be used multiple times for all my students. So I printed pictures from our favorite resource, Webber’s Jumbo Articulation Drill Book. I printed By the way….if you don’t have this book, you should! It it definitely one of my top 10!
Once I had all the pics ready to go, I used coffee canisters (can you tell I drink a lot of coffee?!) to put all the pics for each sound in. I just updated them today by adding cute labels, you can grab the labels HERE.
Now they are ready to go for the new school year! I use these for lots of different activities…
- independent practice with whisper phones
- for a quick data check
- to practice while playing non speech games
The kids just grab their bucket, pull words, and they can practice at whatever level they need to work on. It’s been a great time saver for me and I love it!
What do you think? Would this be a time saver for you too?
