/s/ Blend Monster Trucks and a GIVEAWAY

My summer of ORGANIZATION also includes organizing my Teacher's pay teachers and Teacher's notebook products for the Fall.  I'm also hoping to be able to spotlight some of my SLP friends great products and offer some give aways as well!

Thank you to Rae at Rae's Speech Spot for allowing me to review her S Blend Monster Truck activity.
 I have a few "favorite" speech goals: syllable shapes, final consonants and Blends.  I find that improving these three can make a huge difference in a child's intelligibility.  My caseload is predominantly boys so the Monster Truck theme fit perfectly.  Although I try to study up on most of my client's interests, I have very little monster truck knowledge.  I can usually get by with just throwing "gravedigger" (a popular monster truck?) around during the session.  




Monster Truck /s/ blends comes with 104 picture targets with the monster truck and a clear graphic below.  The pictures are colorful and it was easy for clients to identify what the pictures were.  Did I mention that she has included 104 pictures????  Super Duper's photo artic deck (which is also awesome!) comes with 28.  

I love that it is separated out by blend type (ex. sp blends.)  You could incorporate these pretty easily into a Phonology activity by checking their ability to produce the sounds first, then choosing 4 of the pictures for additional activities 

For this page, I might...
  • play I spy
  • put spots on a paper with dot to dot markers
  • cover the spots with sparkly glitter glue
  • eat a snack with a spoon.)
Afterwards you could check their ability to produce the blends again with the pictures.  

Rae includes directions for a matching game and mixed /s/ blend BINGO cards!  



I like that she has provided 2 options: one with the monster trucks and one with the actual pictures.  She also provides Racing flags and Monster truck tokens.  

My favorite part of this activity is the Monster truck is her cuing cards.  They were really helpful in demonstrating the airflow for /s/.  Plus they were very motivating.  We used little micromachine cars with this too.  


I printed these activities 2 per page to save paper and ink but I would probably print the cuing sheets full size. 

Rae is a GREAT resource for Preschool therapy ideas.  You can follow her here:

I love the compound words and pronouns activities. I also enjoy the clip art on all activities. I know several groups of my kids that would absolutely die over the monster trucks activity! Thanks for all you do for our speechie community!
