It’s already back to school time! If you follow us on Teachers Pay Teachers, you’ve seen that we’ve added a few new back to school products. If you don’t follow us on TPT, you totally should (click HERE)! Be the first to know about freebies and new products!

Articulation Books for Back to School by The Speech Girls

One of our new products is this adorable Bus Book! This picture isn’t totally accurate… After I took this picture I thought the bus should really be driving the other direction, so I switched it. AND, my print was clearly running out of ink. This little bus book includes /b, p, k, g/ in the initial positions. You get 4 little books that fit perfectly in a purse or speech bag. I just printed mine and stapled it, but you could laminate it and punch a hole in the top left to make a keyring book, too. 

After we saw how cute the little bus was, we decided to make a backpack as well! The books are identical, but the backpack is slightly narrower. There are 14 targets in each book. These could also be great for expanding! Or, if you wanted to get creative, you could mix and match the pages to make a book full of early words (some that are included are, “go”, “ball”, “bath”, “car”, “banana”, “puppy”, and “bubbles”).

Alex and I have been hitting up our local Target stores way too often lately! If you are like us and are addicted to the dollar bins at the front of the store, you’ve probably seen these little erasers around. At just $1, I always grab a few bags. I love using them for activities like this one below, and also for board game pawns, token economy pieces, in sensory bins, and so much more. If your local Target didn’t have these erasers, these are a good price on Amazon.

The new school year is approaching quickly, and some of you may have already started! Our Back to School Articulation worksheets are perfect for the first few weeks of school. They have a BTS theme, they’re no-prep (woo-hoo!!), and low ink. We like using these worksheets with the mini erasers, but bingo daubers work great, too.

If you laminate them or use a sheet protector (also in the dollar bins this year!), they can be smash mats with Play-Doh or your kids can color over the pictures with a dry-erase marker. If you haven’t discovered these sheet protectors/dry-erase pockets, they are awesome! It’s similar to laminating, but all you do it slide a piece of paper in the pocket. They’re reusable and super sturdy. Below is a link to some on Amazon, but they are often at the Dollar Tree and teacher supply stores.

To purchase Back to School Articulation, click HERE. It is an extensive packet including /f, v, k, g, l, s/ in initial, medial, and final positions, as well as /r, l, s/ in blends and /r/ in the initial position plus vocalic -ar, -er, -ear, -air, and -or. There are 27 pages of articulation worksheets!

Thanksgiving Bingo

Just in time for Thanksgiving! See our previous post on Halloween bingo to read more about how we use bingo in therapy. In the meantime, grab your FREE Thanksgiving bingo cards now!

Click the image below to download the PDF of Thanksgiving bingo!




Our favorite way to use these BINGO boards is to tape or glue target photos in the squares. However, you can also have your kiddo mark a square each time he produces a sound correctly (or whatever your goal is) and when he fills up the board, it’s time for a break/game. The possibilities are  endless and we leave our BINGO boards blank so you can use them however you want!

Check out these cute beads! They would make perfect bingo markers!

Tell us how you play bingo in the speech room in the comments below!

We all know how boring and predictable drilling photo cards can get. And I think we all know that kid who asks, “Are we playing Go Fish again?” While you may have played Memory with your kiddos before, this is a fun way to make it feel like a whole new game.
