Vocab-U-Sounds combines articulation drills with language activities addressing basic vocabulary, question comprehension, following directions, and more. This 322-page reproducible workbook targets later-developing sounds: CH, J, L, L Blends, R (including Vocalic R), R Blends, S, S Blends, SH, TH (voiced and voiceless), Z, and ZH. Vocab-U-Sounds includes activities for practicing target sounds in isolation and in the initial, medial, and final positions of syllables, words, and sentences. There are also carryover pages for students to practice generalizing their sounds.
Each of the activity pages includes a Language Lesson that introduces a new vocabulary word. After learning one of the 312 vocabulary words, students participate in a fun, hands-on activity. Clear, easy-to-identify line drawings provide multiple opportunities for the students to practice their sounds.
Following the activity are five questions related to the Language Lesson. These comprehension questions are excellent for eliciting spontaneous sound productions. Vocabulary words include basic concepts (color, size, shape), grammar concepts (adverb, verb, pronoun), occupations (police officer, teacher, cashier), places (ocean, desert, school), and much more!
