Hello! If you love fresh ideas for preschool and elementary speech therapy, you’re in the right place!
Let me introduce myself, my name is Lisette. As a school-based SLP In addition to my more traditional groups, I have two pre-school groups of up to ten children that I see for two hours, twice weekly, and it’s a blast! My kids are going strong in circle-time and centers with sound and theme-based activities. Of course, I couldn’t do it without my trained para-professional assistant, who is wonderful. I love to incorporate literature, hands-on art, and games to keep my littles involved.
Stamping Shamrocks for Initial sh
Today I am sharing a fun activity for St Patrick’s day or anytime you are working on initial “sh”. Here is one of my little guys stamping “shamrocks” with half a green pepper. We prompt him to say “shamrock” each time he stamps one. He doesn’t even realize how many times he is practicing his articulation target! There are many more ways to use a simple activity like this: articulation of sh and /k/, /st/ (“stamp”), past tense and pronouns (I stamped one, I stamped two!), descriptive adjectives, and more.

We create many, many opportunities for speech and language practice throughout our sessions, and I’ll be sharing more in my next posts about embedding those speech and language opportunities for natural, fun learning!
