Reading and Retelling Passages for Speech Sounds Activity

Reading and Retelling Passages for Speech Sounds Activity



Description: For older children who are working on generalizing their speech sounds, have them read a passage while focusing on saying their target sound(s) correctly and then retell what happened in the passage.  Bonus points if you use passages like these above that are packed full of a particular sound.  You can write your own short passages containing specific sounds or use the ones we’ve already created here.  Find a way to cue the child when he/she forgets to say the speech sound correctly.   Some children will tolerate a buzzer.  Others may need something more subtle like a clicker/counter.  If the child is really struggling with this, turn it into a listening activity by having him buzz you as you read when he hears the sound produced incorrectly.
