This fold-and-go racetrack is one of my favorite ways to target language, social skills and speech sounds. I use it with my first talkers, asking them to use one or two words to receive different types of cars or practice language routines—such as ready, set, go, or one, two, three. Early prepositions (on, off) and descriptive words (fast, slow) are easily targeted as well.
With my preschoolers, I talk about ordinals and predicting which car will win. I also target sound practice by driving the cars to the card, saying the word and putting the cars on the track. The speed of each turn makes practicing turn-taking fun and easy. The bonus is that every child enjoys running to the race line to pick up the cars to start all over again!
About me: I am a pediatric speech-language pathologist and owner of a small practice, TeachSpeech LLC, in Aldie, Virginia. I work primarily with toddlers, preschoolers and their parents. Using a holistic approach and playful learning, I build a foundation for learning, one word at a time.
