This M&M challenge is a free activity I printed off Teachers Pay Teachers (www.teacherspayteachers.com). To save paper, I made only three copies and slid each one into a plastic page protector.
Each student rolls two dice. The number of dice they roll is the number of speech sounds, words or sentences they have to say with their target sound. After completing their productions, they get to color that number of M&Ms with a dry-erase marker (washable markers just smear, I learned the hard way!).
My students love the challenge of saying 100 words in one session, and if they get to 100 before time is up, they go backward and erase the number they roll on their dice. The Peachie Speechie, Meredith Avren, has several other “challenges” on Teachers Pay Teachers with goldfish crackers, Skittles, and Fruit Loops! My students get the real M&Ms only on special occasions!
About me: I am a newly wed, second-year speech-language pathologist. I work for a public school district, but I serve the six non-public schools in our Nebraska town. My caseload ranges from kindergarten through 12th grade high-functioning speech and language students. I love the diversity in my day, and there is never a dull moment! Making a difference in my students’ lives is truly my passion.
