Google Drive N Word List

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Google Drive. I can access my word lists from any device; laptop, desktop, or phone. 

Also, I can access my word lists WITHOUT the internet. 

If you want a copy, fill out the form above. I put all the word lists in one folder.  Once you receive your email with the materials, make a copy of the files and they are yours to use and tweak as needed.

This is MY FAVORITE NEW RESOURCE! I HONESTLY use it all the time for each articulation session and handouts for home practice.

The words chosen for speech therapy can make all the difference between a good therapy program and a great one! For the generalization phase, it is crucial to use high-frequency words!! It only makes sense to use words that the client will actually say outside of the therapy room. Right?!

For only $5, you will receive 35 pages of materials including:

  • Flashcards that can be used as Cariboo Cards too, yeah!
  • Flashcard free games that can be used as home practice
  • Dot sheets, smash-mats, and/or coloring pages
  • Articulation warm-up sheets which can be used as a goal review sheet
  • Cue cards
  • Word lists
  • Flashcards which contain word, phrase, and sentence level practice
  • Cut/paste sentence level worksheets
  • Self-assessment sheets
  • Parent handouts
  • And more!
