Description

Effective and motivating way for students to fully participate together in the same therapy activity, despite working on different speech sounds.

Target 6 sounds simultaneously during group therapy! This set of 6 books contains matching plays and pagination. The variation is that each book contains unique script lines that target one sound only: /R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th/. As students take turns reading aloud the script lines from their book, focusing on their target sound, they are all performing together in the same humorous play. No preparation needed! These engaging play themes are incredibly motivating and provide students with the repetitive practice needed to achieve articulation goals. Effective during individual therapy sessions as well! Ages 8-15, or a 4th grade reading level. Made in the USA.

How It Works:

Each book in the set focuses on one target sound.

Let's say that Ryan is working on R, Shelly on SH, and Charlie on CH.

Ryan would select the R-Book, Shelly the Sh-Book and Charlie the Ch-Book.

They each open their book to the same page.

That page will feature the same play theme across all 6 books in the set. However, the script lines in each book will be unique to that target sound.

As students take turns reading aloud their lines, focusing on their target sound, they are performing together in the same humorous play.

What's in the Books?

  • Each book features the same 10 playfully illustrated, no-preparation, mix-and-match plays.
  • Each book has unique script lines that focus on one target sound: R, S, L, Sh, Ch, Th.
  • 600 color-coded lines highlighting targeted sounds to increase student self-monitoring.
  • Target sound is highlighted and featured in all word positions at the sentence level.
  • Word lists are included for each play and highlight the target sound in initial, medial and final positions.
  • Curriculum supporting material.
  • Each book: 126 pages, Softcover 6" x 9" © 2015.

These books are completely compatible with the Language Theatre Books!

Do you have both articulation students and language students in your group?

No problem! Articulation Theatre was written to be completely compatible with Language Theatre! Both book sets contain the same 10 plays located on the same pages. Since the play themes match up across all books, a student working on language could grab the synonyms book, open to the same page as the articulation students, and join in on the session seamlessly by reading aloud his or her script lines.

Age Range:

Ages 8-15 years, or a 4th-grade reading level. Effective during individual therapy sessions as well!

"My students became jovial and eager to engage in the lesson. This atmosphere was helpful in therapy to encourage them to self-monitor. They continue to maintain the progress made, which is a testament to the increased motivation they experienced when using this thoughtfully organized, fun and motivating program."Patricia Amodei, MS, CCC-SLP

"My students made measurable progress due to their increased motivation to practice the scenes. Their frustration decreased and liveliness increased as they acted out these entertaining plays. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I found the books' organization, use of colors to target sounds, ease of use for group therapy and motivating humor to be extremely helpful."Colleen Cull, MS, CCC-SLP

"I just got Articulation Theatre. It's really great. The kids seemed to like it!!!" Randi W., SLP

"My students have really enjoyed the Articulation Theatre Books in therapy this year! They particularly love the I'm Sorry and Insults sections...we always end with compliments and fan mail! Thank you for bringing new life to my speech sessions – especially for my older students and those nearing dismissal who are at the sentence and reading levels!"Jenn B., SLP

"I got Articulation Theatre this year. I like it for my older kids who are ready to generalize sounds into reading context. Then we can talk about the stories using the vocabulary with their target sounds."Elisa S., SLP

"I love these! I use the Artic Theatre books to make inferences. I cover the passage and have them read the words and make a smart guess to figure out what they think the passage would be about. And use for artic – more like a warm-up. I think you need to have discussions after reading each passage and have students monitor their speech sounds while discussing. They can be modified for how you want to use them. But better for carry over."Debbie F., SLP

"These books are amazing! So fun!" Jessica C., SLP

"My students LOVE Articulation Theatre Books!"K. Schafnitt, SLP

"The performance at the end of the intervention was a way for my students to work towards a goal and have a product (i.e. performance) to highlight their work. The Articulation Theatre Books were instrumental in helping my students achieve their goals."Jennifer E. Pohl, MS, CCC-SLP
