Happy first day of Articulation Week here at Simply Speech!
I wanted to kick off Artic Week with a bang, so who better to host a guest post than Erik X. Raj?! Erik is one of my favorite bloggers who always has such amazing and creative ideas to use in the speech room. My students and I are huge fans of his Multiple Choice Articulation app. I'm sure you will love his newest app, I Dare You Articulation, too! He is even giving away a copy of his app at the end of the post. Thanks Erik.... take it away :)
As the 2012-2013 academic school year comes to a close, a strange occurrence starts to happen in almost all speech therapy rooms . . . kiddos start to get a bit antsy! I am willing to bet that it has to do with the fact that the glorious summer break is in sight (hooray!). Warmer weather almost always triggers thoughts of jumping into a refreshing swimming pool, running around the local park playing fun summertime games, or some other exciting gross motor activity. With all that being said, are you looking for a new speech therapy app that allows your students to get up out of their seat and move around while practicing their speech sounds? If the answer is yes, I am proud to introduce to you I Dare You Articulation.
I have created an app that is filled with 600 child-friendly dares and the kiddos on my speech therapy caseload simply can't get enough of 'em! Now let's say you have a kiddo who is working on producing that crisp and clear initial /R/ sound? Well, how about asking him/her to do this dare:
While your student is pretending to row a rowboat down a river, make sure to have the student repeat the silly dare!
Then, how about this sentence:
bet you never thought you would have a racoon in your speech therapy room, did ya?
Or how about this one:
A wrestler? Oh my! Now THIS is getting very interesting.
