Story Booklet Template

I don't know why I never thought to make this before.  I absolutely LOVE using Super Duper's Fold & Say Story Comprehension booklets, and my kids love getting to color and draw a picture after they answer the questions.  I made a customized Christmas booklet for one of my students today and he loved it!

Please note that this file does NOT look right when previewing it in your browser.  It will only work if you download it to your computer, and even then, I learned today that you have to be using the newest version of Word!  This would have been much easier with Microsoft Publisher, but they no longer make that in a Mac version!

Grammar: Judging Grammar in Sentences

This worksheet helps students learn to judge whether a sentence was said with correct grammar.  I also have my students correct the sentences that have grammatical errors.

Articulation: S Blends - Minimal Pairs in Sentences

These sentences each contain an /s/ blend and a word without the /s/.  For example, the first sentence contains both the words "tool" and "stool."

Articulation: "Sh" Data Sheet (Isolation & Syllables)

"Sh" can be a tricky sound to teach!  I have a sweet girl with Down syndrome who has a lot of nasal emission when producing this sound.  In fact, she is unable to produce anything sounding like "sh" when she pinches her nose closed.  It almost comes out more like /k/.  This shows me that 100% of the air comes out of her nose when she normally produces the sound.  We are going to start working on producing the sound in isolation without nasal emission.

Have you worked on nasal emission before?  Let me know if you have any advice!

Pragmatics: Emotions

I made this worksheet for one of my clients who is working on identifying when he or others might feel a particular emotion.

Expressive Language: Describing Objects

I use this worksheet along with a describing cue sheet if needed.  The cue sheet includes questions such as: What category is it in?  What do you do with it?  What does it look like?

Articulation: Near Minimal Pairs in Sentences: S and Sh

Here is an activity similar to the last worksheet I posted.  These sentences contain both the /s/ and /sh/ sounds for kids who start to mix up the two.  The first 15 sentences contain minimal pairs, and the last 10 contain near-minimal pairs.

Articulation: Near Minimal Pairs in Sentences: F/V and Th

Many kids can distinguish between minimal pairs at the individual word level, but when reading sentences, all of the rules go out the window.  I wrote these sentences for a client who can now produce the "th" sound, but is now overextending that production to the "f" and "v" sound as well.

Receptive Language: Understanding "Not"

I have a few kids who have trouble with negation concepts (not, none, nothing, except, etc.).  This is a hard concept to teach!  I usually start by putting 3 similar noun picture cards in front of the child and saying, "These are all foods."  I then put a non-food picture card in front of the child (but away from the others) and say, "But this one is NOT a food."  Then I gradually fade the verbal cues until the child is the one saying "This one is NOT a ______."  I made this worksheet to make the concept a little more abstract (i.e., without using picture cues).

Categories: Yes-No Questions

After mastering the goal of answering yes/no questions to affirm or deny object labels (e.g., "Is this an apple?") I like to move on to answering more abstract yes/no questions about items in categories (e.g., "Is an apple a fruit?").  This worksheet provides 20 of these questions.

What are some of the ways you work on teaching "yes" and "no"?  It seems so simple, but it's so hard to teach!

Expressive Language: Comparing and Contrasting Worksheet

This worksheet has 3 pages (14 questions) of comparing and contrasting prompts with written cues reminding the student to use the terms "same" and "different".

Expressive Language: Top Ten Easy Personal Questions

I have many kids who can't answer personal questions (even when they know the answer).  With some of my clients who are less intelligible, I am working on answering these questions using an AAC device such as a DynaVox or an iPad with Proloquo2Go.  With others who are not motivated to talk, I am simply working on getting a response the first time I ask the question.  With others, I simply want them to be able to recite their last name and phone number in case of an emergency.  I make it a goal for my kids to answer at least 8 out of these 10 questions within 5 seconds, the first time they are asked.  I also teach my kids to say something like "Hmm" or "Let me think" if they need additional time.  When they give a blank stare instead, it's unclear whether they understood the question, whether they are still thinking, or whether they are ignoring me.  Do you have any other "must know" personal questions that you want your kids to be able to answer?

Receptive/Expressive Language: Identifying Items Given 2 Attributes

This is always a fun goal to target.  I usually pair it with a board game, and before each turn the client has to answer one question.  Some of these have only one possible answer, and others are more open ended.

Fall Themed Flash Cards:

Worksheet Version:

Articulation: Silly Sentences with the K Sound

I forgot to post these K worksheets when I posted all of the other Silly Sentences files.  I like sending these home with kids who are working on producing the K phoneme in all word positions in sentences!  Do you have kids who are working on producing /k/?

Expressive Language: Asking "Why Not" Questions

This is a particularly hard goal for some of my clients.  It involves not only formulating a semantically appropriate, grammatically correct question from a prompt, but also using negation concepts.  That's a lot of work going into forming one question!

Expressive Language: Asking "Where" Questions

This worksheet is designed to work on formulating grammatically and pragmatically appropriate "where" questions.  This is similar to a worksheet I posted working on formulating "when" questions.

Expressive Language: Absurdities in Sentences

I use semantic absurdities in therapy to teach kids to use their reasoning/problem solving skills and expressive language skills to identify and explain the problem with a picture or sentence.  Here are 10 sentences with semantic absurdities in them.

Grammar: Regular Plural Nouns Part 2

Here are the regular plural nouns where you add -es to the end of the word (versus adding -s like my previous worksheet).  I use these worksheets with my kids with expressive language impairments who have trouble with grammatical morphemes.

Grammar: Regular Plural Nouns

Free language worksheet addressing regular plural noun forms (-s form only).  I plan on making more worksheets with other regular plural forms (-es).

Spatial Directions: Dots on a Face

Spatial or positional concepts are so hard for my clients with autism.  Here they are just drawing a dot, but it's more motivating to think of that dot as a booger, wart, or bug... especially for my sweet little boys!

Expressive Language: What Would You Text?

One of my high school aged clients just got his first cell phone.  I would love to help him learn how to communicate basic messages (comments and questions) using text messages.   I made this worksheet to role play a few situations when he might want or need to send a text message to a familiar adult or to a peer.  I love working in a private clinic because I have the freedom to work on functional communication goals like this!

Spatial Directions: Thanksgiving Theme

The Halloween cut and paste positional directions pages were a hit, so I made Thanksgiving following directions worksheets!  They can be used for working on basic spatial concepts, following directions, learning prepositions, etc.  You can also ask "where" questions after finishing the activity.

Articulation: Initial /l/ Words

I have lots of kids who have used these flash cards to work on the /l/ phoneme in the initial position of words!  If they are working on producing /l/ in phrases or sentences you could have them describe the picture, or ask a question about the picture, or simply use a carrier phrase such as "here is the..." or "I have the..." or "look at the" (for extra /l/ practice)!

Expressive Language: Formulating Questions

If you haven't noticed, I make a lot of materials for working on asking questions.  So many of my kids have trouble with formulating grammatically correct, semantically and pragmatically appropriate questions.  I made this worksheet to work on asking questions when given a word to use in the question.  You could also use noun/adjective flash cards, and then a set of "types of questions" flash cards, and have the child draw one of each... might be more fun and interactive than a "boring worksheet"!

Articulation: Initial /f/ Words

Free flash cards for initial /f/ words!  Put around the room and have the child say "I found a..." for extra /f/ practice if the child is working on producing /f/ at the sentence level!

Articulation: Initial /y/ Words

One of my favorite clients used to produce /w/ for /y/ (yes, I know the phoneme is actually written as /j/ but I don't really use the IPA).  It's easy to work on the "y" sound because it's so similar to the "ee" vowel.  So "yes" can be said as "ee"..."es".

Spatial Directions: Halloween

This cut-and-paste activity works on positional or spatial concepts and has a Halloween theme.  You can also ask "where" questions after completing the activity to work on prepositions.  This worksheet won PediaStaff's Pinterest Pin of the Week!

Pragmatics: Responses to Social Greetings

Social skills are so fun to work on!  I have kids who answer "fine" when I say "What's up?"  I am working on getting them to realize that there are different types of social greetings and each one has a different appropriate response.  You can also use toy people or animals to role play these situations.

Phonology: Stopping /s/ Minimal Pairs

These flash cards can be used for clients who produce /t/ for /s/ (known as "stopping").  You may want to work on auditory discrimination first (point to "tea" / point to "sea") to make sure the child can hear the difference, and then work on actually producing the /s/.

It may help to add a prolonged /h/ sound after the /s/.  So like "sss".... "he".

Spatial Concepts: Prepositions Booklet

Print all pages and make a booklet!  Then cut out the pictures and have the child follow the positional directions.  (To make it easier, draw 3 X's on each page so the child has 3 choices for where to glue the item).  After completing the activity, ask "where" questions to work on prepositions.

Note: I made this using Microsoft Publisher, which I no longer have.  I am not sure whether the pages print in the order that they are supposed to when you print them from this PDF.  You may want to print them all first and then rearrange them!

Articulation: Final /g/ CV and CVC Flash Cards

These flash cards target the /g/ phoneme in the word final position of CVC words.  These could also be used to address final consonant deletion.

Speech Reward Stickers!

I often forget to tell my clients' parents how great they did at one thing or another.  So I made these little stickers to remind THEM to tell their parents what they are working on, and what they have done a good job with!
Print on 2"x4" labels such as Avery 8163.

Articulation: Initial /d/ CVC Flash Cards

These flash cards target the /d/ phoneme in the initial position of CVC and CV words.

Reading: Pumpkin Sight Words (CV, VC, and CVC words)

I made these for one of my sweet kids who is working on decoding short CV, VC, and CVC words!  I think I will cut them out and have him go fishing for them.  These are all words that sound just like what they look like.  Wouldn't it be nice if ALL words were like that?

Categories: What Doesn't Belong?

I made this worksheet for one of my clients to work on identifying the word in a group of 4 that does not belong in a category... and more importantly, to explain why it does not belong!

Grammar: Irregular Plural Nouns

This free worksheet addresses irregular plural nouns!  The child must turn each singular noun into a plural noun form.  Irregular nouns in this worksheet include fish, children, teeth, knives, mice, and many more.
