Articulation Story Collection – Practice Plosives with Six Stories!
TMV’s Speech Therapy Articulation Story Collection features six stories that uniquely target plosive sounds, /p/, /b/, /t/, /d/, /k/, and /g/ in initial position. This collection is ideal for in-session work but may also be used in many other ways such as home practice.
The following articulation stories are included within:
- Pete the Pony’s Birthday Party
- Billy’s Big Bike Adventure
- Teddy the Tiger
- Debbie’s Day Downtown
- Karen’s Kindergarten Show and Tell
- 20 Goofy Gumballs
All stories include a variety of wh- questions that prompt children to answer using their best speech. Questions were written in a format that reinforces the targeted phoneme throughout the story (e.g., Who had a birthday party?) Additionally, the stories, “Teddy the Tiger” and “20 Goofy Gumballs” feature a unique rhyme pattern that allows children to improve phonological awareness.
How to Prepare and Use?
Print the desired story of your choice. Laminate for long-term use. Articulation stories may be used as a warm-up listening activity (e.g., build a token tower – add one token every time you hear your special speech sound!) They may also be read out loud by the clinician or client. Clinicians may use the wh- questions found within each story to prompt articulation trials and/or practice story comprehension.
