Children enjoy creating these simple articulation butterflies. First, I ask them to personalize their butterflies with a name and a favorite color, animal and hobby containing their speech sound. Then, we find fun ways to showcase these key words as we create the butterflies.
The process of giving the butterflies a personality breathes meaning into words containing the students’ speech sounds so that, as they reflect on this motivating activity, they frequently recall these target words. As a bonus, when children bring their butterflies into other settings, they gain additional opportunities to practice their articulation as they discuss them with others.
