General Spanish Articulation Materials

Parent Information

How to Use: The links above are handouts written for parents that explain how to say and cue for F.  These should be given out to parents at the beginning of treatment and reviewed as needed.

Word List

How To Use: The word lists are most commonly used for drill practice. The therapist or parent reads a word and the child repeats it to practice articulation. It is important to give constructive feedback for every production and cue for correct responses when needed. The goal here is to get A LOT of correct sound practice. If the child is making a lot of errors, stepping back to isolation may be needed.

Others uses for word lists are a quick stimuli while playing a board game, having the child read the words, reference for making flashcards, etc...

F Flashcards

How To Use: Flashcards are very useful for drill practice once the child is successful at the word level. The flashcards allow for multiple repetitions of words without a verbal model. This is a big step in the continuum of generalization.

Another important use of the flashcards is for home practice. They can be used as drill practice and/or paired with a general flashcard game. For drill practice, there are little boxes to keep track of progress and to be used as part of a reward system if needed. For game practice, print off the flashcards and print off a general flashcard game from the link above or here. Make sure to mark if the child should be playing the game at the word, phrase, or conversational level. Don’t forget to jot down helpful cues as well.

Functional Games

  • F Functional Games - Coming soon!

How To Use: The functional games can be used as parent handouts or therapy ideas for games that practice F but require NO flashcards. Once a child is able to name a flashcard with or when cues cues, he/she is ready to play flashcard games at home with parents or during therapy.

The flashcard games attached vary in level of difficulty. Some can be played with young toddlers and some are fun for older students. There are instructions for articulation practice at the word, phrase/sentence, and connected speech level.

Make sure to circle the level of practice and jot down helpful cues parents can use to elicit correct sound production. There is also a section where parents can share notes or ask questions. It is a great tool for easy parent-SLP communication as well as fun home practice!

Language F Games

How To Use: The language based activities are great for children who are doing well with the flashcard games and need another boost to help with generalization. It is important to continue to provide parents with least restrictive cues at this level too! There is a space at the bottom of each page to jot down quick notes.

Smash Mats

How To Use For Articulation:

  • Have a child name a picture (word level practice) and then place a token or playdough on it (motivation).
  • Have a child point a picture, say it, and then, make up a sentence using the chosen word (sentence level practice). After, the child places a token or playdough on it (motivation).
  • Have a child pick two pictures and make up a sentence using both words (sentence level practice and language practice).
  • Pick a favorite picture or least favorite picture and explain why (connected speech level practice).
  • Print off a game board and find a coin (heads is 1/tails is 2) or a dice and 2 tokens. Roll the coin/dice. Move a token along the game board and name pictures as you pass them. The first one to reach the finish line wins.

How To Use For Language:

  • Have a child name a function or category of a picture (word level practice) and then place a token or playdough on it (motivation).
  • Have a child describe a picture and then place a token or playdough on it (motivation).
  • Have a child find 2 pictures that are related, describe why, and then place a token or playdough on it (motivation)
  • Have a child pick an action, place, and character picture and make up a story about them (narrative language practice).
