goals? In the SAME group? YIKES!
You have numerous artic students on your caseload. You often have no choice
other than to group them together. Sometimes, often in my case, students with
mixed goals are seen at the same time. It is possible to have 4 different
students working on four different sounds! How do you plan a session for that?!
activities that are the same, yet feature components that target different speech
sounds, so that the whole group can do the same activity, while addressing
their individual needs.
probably my forte! Below you will find some examples from my Roll-A-Bingo series. Kids
have packets for multiple sounds available—and all feature the sound in all
positions of words.
that are different colors and/or sizes that would work very well. I found the
set pictured below at Dollar Tree and promptly purchased two sets. They are
erasers! If you can’t find something at Dollar Tree, you might check Target or
vertical columns and which will represent the horizontal rows. You can see
below that this student chose blue for the rows and red for the columns. Roll
both dice. The student placed the red die on the appropriate number along the top row. Then, the same was done with the blue die along the column at the far left. Now, have you student locate that corresponding picture/word. Have the
student say the word the same number of times as one of the die OR have the
student use the word in a sentence. The student then crosses out the
word/picture box that has been used. Now the next student may take a turn with their Roll-A-Bingo sheet.
the mode of play, you can leave one of the die in place along either the top
row or left column and roll only the other die. This is a nice variation on the
individually) who was very goal oriented and insisted on completing the grid.
It took two sessions to finish! Activities that continue from one session to
the next are helpful in terms of decreasing the SLPs planning time!
the Roll-A-Bingo series (at this point). I store each one of them on Google
Drive, which is a free “cloud” storage service. Items stored on Drive are
accessible at all of my schools, as well as at home. I simply choose the sound
and position needed, and print it out. It is quick and EASY! Best of all, of
course, is that you can combine students with different goals into one group
and ONE activity!
helpful, fun and time-saving as I do!
