Practice with these in an engaging puzzle and zoo-themed activity designed for speech and language intervention!
The packet begins with multisyllabic words and includes activities to work towards generalizing those and other 2-4 syllable words.
Great for homework, weak syllable deletion, and even plurals!
Children with speech sound disorders may have difficulty producing multisyllabic words. This can be due to poor motor planning or phonological difficulties.
Includes (in color and black & white):
- NINE 2-syllable word animals
- EIGHT 3-syllable word animals
- EIGHT 4-syllable word animals
- A board game
- A zoo scene including all the animals for generalization
- Zoo scene key
Cut out the puzzle cards. The puzzle pieces contain visual prompts, so the number of animals equates to the number of syllables in its name. Touch each animal per syllable spoken for a visual aide. Once the cards have been mastered, move onto the board game.
Next, play the board game and lead the animals to the zoo! You will need a spot holder (e.g. a bingo chip, marker from another game) for each player and a dice in order to play. Roll the dice and move forward the corresponding number of spaces. Say the animal you land on in an utterance or sentence to initiate generalization. Take turns and the first person to reach the zoo is the winner!
Last, there is a zoo scene to practice multisyllabic words in an unstructured activity. Make sentences or have a conversation about the animals to ensure your patient has fully generalized and mastered multisyllabic words.
Black and white versions included for ink-saving option or to send home!
SLPS LIKE YOU SAID…
“So many of my kiddos need that tactile component. Cute zoo theme. I printed and laminated for practice at school and send home puzzles for fun homework activity.”
“Wonderful visual for my struggling sight readers!! Very helpful to see how things are laid out and wonderful multi sensory feedback by putting the pieces together!!”
“I love these! I laminated them and have my kiddos use a hand pointer with them. Having the visual for the word and the puzzle pieces to break the word up into syllables has been so helpful for my students that struggle with multisyllabic words and nonreaders.”
“This has been a fun way to address weak syllable deletion!”
