Articulation/Phonology Goal

For all the kids on your caseload with articulation (or similar) goals, I’m sure you use Super Duper Artic Fun Decks.

You can print out a few pages of the presents and tape a photo card to each present. Then have your kiddo say the word and put it in Santa’s sleigh. You can also use the sleigh and it’s parts as “tokens”. I have one kiddo in mind who would love to earn all the parts and then play with them for a few minutes. I would drill the cards and each correct production earns a piece. Then when all the pieces are earned, let them play! You could easily put magnetic tape on the back and let them create a scene on a cookie sheet.

Language Goals

For a child working on prepositions, ask the child, “Put the present on Santa’s sleigh,” “Put the present under Rudolph,” “Put the reindeer in front of the sleigh,” etc. You could also have her describe the scene (The reindeer are brown, The present has a big, green bow, etc.). You can also work on story re-telling. Tell a quick story, such as, “Santa filled up his sleigh with lots of presents for all the girls and boys. He got his eight reindeer ready and took off into the snowy night.” Make it shorter or longer according to the kiddo. Have them retell the story and create a scene.
