Some days - at least for me - it can be difficult to connect articulation therapy to the general curriculum. There are certain sounds that can fit in really great with a book, theme, or activity, but sometimes... I just want to get to work & need to drill.

I worked with a great SLP back home who used stations during speech, which is something I really struggle with in a small room, so that hasn't been integrated too often this year, but I digress. During one of her speech stations, the kids searched their most recent reading story for their sounds as a sort of scavenger hunt. 
I like this for a few reasons.

1. You can turn it into a Scattegories-like game, if the kids are working on the same sound. So there is a game for you.

2. You can work on vocabulary/defining/using the word in a sentence if the kids are at that level... That's a perk!

3. If you are wanting some one on one time with one of your speech friends, this keeps some of the busy bodies occupied.

4. And you can't argue that a little curriculum was mixed into your artic sesh.

5. Instant homework. Bam!

Last year, I worked this in a lot more. This year, it has been kind of lost in the mix.

A freebie is below, naturally. All I ask is that you please comment! Tell me what you do to integrate curriculum into articulation therapy or how you structure artic therapy to be maximally productive!? Or just say hi!

Love this! Will definitely be using this for homework. I've already been having students bring their reading and math to therapy to look for target sounds. Spelling and sight words are great for artic practice, too.

Awesome! I am now in the classroom a lot so I can incorporate speech that way. Otherwise, I find a lot of great vocabulary from flocabulary and use that!
