My Favorite Articulation Homework: DIY Silly Phrases Books
Easily my favorite articulation homework to make with my clients is what I call their “silly sentences” book and here’s how you make it:
- Gather materials: paper, stapler, pencils/markers
- Staple the papers together along the long edge of the paper
- Cut up almost to the top so that the book now has two or three sections
- Brainstorm what words to put in for the adjectives and nouns flaps
- Have fun making and then re-making a whole lot of silly sentences!
This activity helps me to make an engaging home practice activity that my client will hopefully be excited to share with their grown-ups, helps me take some baseline data on if they can discriminate sounds in words and identify their target sounds (or if we have only achieved mastery of a motor pattern), and get an idea of what associations my client is making when practicing their speech sounds.
Happy articulation practice!
