This flexible speech therapy activity for articulation allows you to visually represent and track your student’s speech plus motivate them at the same time. Articulation Trackers allow students to color-code and make their own ‘key’ to then use when they practice their speech sounds.
There are worksheets included for initial, medial and final position and they are super print-friendly and all in black & white. The flexible nature of this resource means that you can use them for any level that you are working on such as words, phrases, sentences, or stories.
Just use crayons, pencils, or markers to fill in the boxes – or if you want to maximize your time, dabbers, stampers or simply marking an ‘x’ in the box works well too.
Students are encouraged to color-code the boxes with their own choice of colors – and note that you don’t HAVE to use every box. You might decide to just practice on correct/incorrect productions and have two colors on your sheet, I just encourage you to think about your students and what their needs are 🙂
Boxes include: I said it right, I forgot my sound, I fixed my sound, I tried my best, I said it all by myself, I moved up a level, I got 3 in a row, I got 5 in a row, I got 10 in a row.
✅ — Late Sounds: s, sh, z, th, v, l, ch, j, r + vocalic r (ar, or, er, air, ire, ear)
