Learning speech sounds can be especially tough for young learners! These colorful and engaging Animal Speech Sound Prompts are the perfect addition to your therapy resources as a fun way to encourage your little articulation kids to say and remember their sounds.
There are two sides to the animal – one side gives a prompt about what the child has to do with their articulators (e.g. ‘stick your tongue between your teeth and blow ‘th’) while the other side gives a concise verbal prompt that you can use throughout therapy (e.g. ‘cooling polar bear sound ‘th’). Together, they provide a simple and easy understand way for children to develop their speech sounds.
⭐The best way to use these is to laminate them and stick them on craft sticks so that you have front-to-back animal speech prompts.⭐
Flashcards are also included for the purposes of stimulability testing and even auditory discrimination – or you may use these as special sound reminders for your students.
✅ — 22 different animal mouths (doubled – so really 44 in total as one mouth has a short prompt, one mouth has a long prompt)
✅ — All main sounds are included: p, b, t, d, m, n, ng, w, y, r, l, h, f, s, sh, z, th, v, ch and j
✅ — Color and black and white copies provided so that students can take home, color & use
✅ — 22 animal mouth flashcards that can be used for stimulability testing
