The students were give a list of 100 words containing their sound in all word positions (initial, medial, and final) and asked to say them using their best speech with someone at home. They were given 2 weeks to complete this challenge! (If you do use these word lists, be sure to attach a parent letter to the word list explaining the challenge. I would be happy to email you the letter I made - just email me and ask :).
Students who completed the challenge earned a ribbon to be displayed outside the speech room and earned a prize on the 100th day of school. With Parent-Teacher conferences coming up, this is a great way to show parents what we practice in the speech room!
Additionally, because there will be an increase in traffic in the school hallways with upcoming Parent-Teacher conferences, next to the Articulation Challenge display, I like to display some informational items: Speech Sound Development Chart, a reminder about practicing speech at home, and Process of Articulation Therapy.
Do you do anything special for the 100th day of school? We would love to hear your ideas!!
