I see students with articulation goals on a daily basis. Sometimes, I just want to pick an activity that I can use with several students no matter what sound they are working on. In this freebie roundup, I put together a list of free articulation activities that each target several speech sounds. 

A special thank you to Adventures in Speech Pathology, Speech Dreams, Ivy League Language, Kiwi Speech and Simply Speaking SLT for creating and giving away these awesome activities! Give them some love by following their stores.

Articulation Bounce Boards Freebie

by Adventures in Speech Pathology

These bounce boards have been a huge hit with my students. I have used them in person and via teletherapy. You can choose to print the color or black and white version.

The sounds included are /s, r, v and k/. 

To use this via teletherapy you can use annotation tools and virtual dice. Here are the YouTube dice I use. I just hit play to “roll” and “pause” to stop.

Birthday Celebration Articulation for Later Sounds

by Ivy League Language

I recently discovered this freebie and have already started using it. I had two kiddos with December birthdays so I used it with them. I love this activity because I can use it in two different ways.

1) Cover the pictures with “play-dough” as you say the target word.

2) Have the student find the picture that you name. He or she will practice the words as they move the “play-dough” out of the way.

If you want to play using option 2, you’ll need to pull up the page ahead of time and cover all of the pictures before showing it to your student. You’ll also need to make a quick list of the words so that you know what to tell the student to find. 

The sounds included are /s, s-blends, z, l, l-blends, r, r-blends,  th, sh, ch and dʒ/.

Articulation Secret Codes

by Kiwi Speech

This freebie has been lots of fun with my upper elementary schoolers who enjoy puzzles. To make it competitive, you can use a timer and see who can crack the code the fastest. 

For older students, I also use it for targeting vocabulary. We define words and talk about prefixes and suffixes if applicable. We also work on formulating sentences using each word. 

The sounds included are /r, s, z, ch, sh, j, l and th/.

Not Grade Specific

Articulation Memory Match

by Simply Speaking SLT

This PowerPoint game is a classic memory matching game. It has real photos instead of illustrations which is also great for older students. I have used it with kids ranging from first grade all the way up to fifth grade.  

If using it in a mixed group, you can also use the photos to work on naming attributes, naming categories, and formulating sentences. 

The sounds included are /ch, f, g, k, l, l-blends, r, r-blends, s, s-blends, sh and th/.
