Are you needing some task box size articulation materials that cover all your later developing sounds in every position? Do you find that your students would really benefit from having the visual cue of their target sound on the very material that they are using?These Articulation Squares are a flexible addition to your therapy toolkit. They take up a small amount of room but have the opportunity for lots of repetitions and practice.
DOWNLOAD THIS RESOURCE IF YOU WANT:
➊ — A page with 48 speech sound targets (x12 initial, x12 medial, x12 final, x12 mixed)
➋ — Articulation materials that include visual-phonetic cues for elicitation support
➌ — To combine evidence-based practice and work across different positions at once
➍ — Organizational-friendly articulation materials that fit in a task box
One of the most effective ways to use Articulation Squares to get high repetition is to grab mini or little objects to place on or around each picture. It’s a wonderful motivator and reinforcement and can elicit fast-paced practice in a short amount of time. If you run RTI or 5-minute speech groups, this is a great addition.
Some hands-on ideas include play-dough smash, placing counters, beads, pom poms, blocks, LEGO pieces, mini erasers, small crystals, or aquarium stones on the pictures as you go. The black and white pages are great for hole punching, stamping, dabbing, coloring, and even cutting!
SIZING: Choose to print full page (four squares to a page), or cut individually to fit into task boxes.

What SLP’s like you are saying:
❝ I love this resource! The visuals are excellent and I love that each square has the articulation cue to reference.❞
❝ I love this bundle for my kids! I use it on a daily basis and it’s perfect for traveling between schools.❞
❝ I love using these in my speech sessions! Very engaging for my clients and I have used them in multiple ways to get more practice (with playdough, pegs, coloured markers, magnetic chips…)❞
❝ These have helped me get lots of practice in a session, even with kids who typically lose interest very quickly! Also, parents have told me that they find it easier to do homework with these!❞
I am a HUGE fan of getting hands-on and creative in speech to get high practice within sessions.
