What’s your favorite way to drill? We all know that it’s important to get as many correct trials per session as you can during articulation therapy.
If you’re looking for something quick and easy to pull out when you’ve got 3 IEP meetings, progress reports are due, and things are just plain crazy, I’ve got you covered with this free articulation printable. Lesson plans for the day…check!
Here’s my basic, no-frills articulation template to use for getting those trials in. I use sheets for 25, 50, 75, and 100 trials…printable and digital. And you know I’m all about the hands-on therapy, so the kids will stay engaged. Be sure to check out the creative ways to use it below!
I pull out this thing all. the. time. My kids never seem to get tired of it, since I do multiple activities with this same template. There is a row at the top where you can write in the student’s target words. Then, they say each word the number of squares in the column. They mark the squares as they say the words.
Here are a few of my favorite ways to use this with either your in-person or digital students.
Ideas for in-person sessions:
- Put the template in a dry-erase pouch and mark the squares with dry erase markers
- Use with mini-erasers or pom poms and tongs
- Print individual sheets and use with stamps, stickers, or dot-markers
- Use with edibles (cereal, marshmallows, mini M&Ms, etc.)
- Put in a dry-erase pouch and use with play dough balls like a smash mat
Ideas for virtual sessions:
- Insert photos on the sides to make it themed
- Type in words and drill as is with star shapes
- Insert different shapes or clipart, resize, and add to the squares as they say the words
- Drill with writing tools like Kami, Zoom toolbar, or the highlighter pen
I’ve also included templates without the space to write words. These are great if you want to target a lot of different words instead of the same words over and over. Just pull out a card deck or an IPad app and use those as your targets.
If you own any of my themed mini-units, there are super cute themed articulation grids in each download that can be used the same ways mentioned above.
