Spooky Speech

It's October and that means that our little Bats and Ghouls are 1/4 of the way through their year with us!  It's also progress notes/conference time here in Kansas City.  On top of all of that, I have a suspicion that the sugar rush has already begun 2 weeks prior to Halloween.  So... I created some spooky speech activities to give me a break from planning RtI/speech sessions during conference week!  I hope this material is helpful to you as well... 

Spooky Speech is a Halloween Articulation Word List and Activities document.  Included in the document:
  • Word lists for R, S, Z, L, Sh, Ch, J, F, V, T, D, K, and G - other sounds just didn't have enough words for a whole list but you can use other word lists with the other activities included.  
  • Spooky Speech Spell - have students use words from their lists to write a "spell" and practice saying it for carry-over practice.  We like to make our spells silly or for "never-ending candy" which has been a popular choice.
  • Potent Potion - A MadLib style page where students use words from their lists to fill in blanks to a potion in their cauldron.  We like to stand up and pretend to follow our own recipes in an invisible cauldron.  Laughing wickidly always adds to the fun.
  • Halloween Scream Scene - Students draw a scene which includes words from their list.  I then have them tell me about their scene using good speech sounds.
  • "Boo"go - Bingo board template that can be filled out using any sound(s).  The Free Space is now a "Fright Space" but all other rules stand!

We've had a good time playing around with these activities this week.  Here is your halloween "treat" from me to all of you lovely blog followers:
