I often browse blogs, Instagram and Pinterest looking for ways to create simple and cost-effective activities to motivate and engage children and make learning fun for everyone. I drew inspiration for this game from a crocodile activity I saw on growingkinders.blogspot.com. “Alligator Articulation” started with a simple cardboard box—I covered it with construction paper and used coffee lids for eyes. The kids reach into the mouth and pull out an articulation card to see what the alligator has eaten. If they draw a “chomp” card they have to put back all of their cards. I also have the kids feed the alligator a variety of objects that have the sound they need to work on. Yes, alligators eat cars, carrots, cookies and cups! The kids had a blast reaching into the alligator’s mouth and quickly feeding it objects just in time to avoid their hands getting chomped.
About me: I am a second-year speech-language pathology graduate student at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. I’ve worked with a wide range of ages during my time in graduate school, with the support of the wonderful faculty. I would love to serve clients of all ages in my future career, and I look forward to completing my degree. Connecting with other students and professionals online inspires me to create novel activities and share resources and treatment ideas.
