R Packet Using High-Frequency Words
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

- And more!
