Enjoy easy, no-prep articulation carryover activities with these versatile and target-filled news stories! This product includes 12 newspaper pages, each one loaded with a different articulation sound. Best of all, they work for so many goals – articulation, language, fluency, social, AND mixed groups!
My students have so much fun playing news reporter while sharing these sound-loaded news articles. Perfect for students working on articulation sounds at the sentence level or higher!
Here’s what’s inside:
- 12 sound loaded newspaper pages
- 2 Articulation carryover games to make it fun (Roll-A-Dice and Board/Card Games)
- 4 WH- questions worksheet pages, designed to get even more practice
- 2 Writing prompt worksheets
There is one newspaper page for each of the following sounds:
- /s/ blends
- /l/ blends
- Initial /r/
- /r/ blends
- Vocalic /r/
Unless otherwise noted, all positions are targeted together on each page. Each newsletter is labeled with the sound it targets.
These no-prep newspapers can be quickly printed off to use in a group, or pulled up on your iPad for a no-print option. To use traditionally, just print the newsletters and use them to target articulation sounds by reading them or discussing them.
Get creative with these newspapers!
- Have students design their own newspapers and write their own news stories.
- Record your students acting like a news reporter talking about their story, then go back and listen for articulation carryover.
- Write news stories about happenings around your own school! You could even interview teachers and other students!
Here’s some reasons why other SLPs have loved this resource:
♥ “This is a fantastic product and keeps my students highly motivated and engaged. They love the variety of topics and the format is unique to anything else I own. Easily recommend buying this one!” -Heather C.
♥ “This is one of my all-time favorite purchases from TpT. My students love these articles (along with SM’s Articulation Menus), and I can also use them with my language/mixed groups as well. Well done, Shannon! :)” -Hannah C.
♥ “It’s hard to find fun activities that focus on the higher levels of speech therapy. Sometimes students have a harder time generalizing their speech goals; however, this resource helps to facilitate working at that level. The news articles are entertaining as well!” -Kamila S.
