{Review} SpeechPage Products

SpeechPage products are some of my favorites!!  They are extremely durable and provide great, colorful visuals to assist students in improving their speech and language skills.  (And for any organization junkies out there, SpeechPage products come in easy to store bags, have hole punches, and/or are bound by a ring so there's no risk of losing pages or parts of the activity!)  Today, I will be sharing products with you to target wh-questions, opposites, and articulation.

Interactive Wh-Questions ALL 6 WH COMBO! 3A3B is an awesome new resource from SpeechPage.  This material covers who, what, where, when, why, and how questions.

Each card includes 15 different questions (for a total of 90 questions) and has picture cues for both the question and the answer for maximum visual support with this skill.  I LOVE this resource and will definitely be getting a lot of use out of it!  Although it can be used for drilling practice, the activity is much more fun when colorful pictures and velcro are involved!  This material is usually $39.99, but is currently on sale for $34.99!!

Here is a closer look at one of the questions.  (Q: "What do we put into a washing machine?" A: "Dirty laundry.")

The next product, Interactive Opposites 5A, is simple, yet extremely useful and includes various levels so that it can be used with students as their skills change.  This activity includes fifty different antonyms in five different pages: two introductory level pages, two middle level pages, and one high level page.  All of the words/concepts on the page include opposite words on the top that have been velcro-ed to their antonym. This activity makes boring drilling way more fun and interactive!  This material is usually $32.99, but is currently on sale for $27.99!!

Last, but not least, is 48 Illustrated S or R Tongue Twisters 6A!  This is a great way to work on articulation - especially carryover of targeted sounds.  The material includes short tongue twister phrases that can easily be mastered, instead of long sentences.  This activity includes:

- 1 /r/ target page
- 1 /s/ target page
- 1 /s/ vs. "th" target page
- 1 /r/ vs. /w/ target page
- 1 /s/, /l/, /r/ target page
- 1 /s/ blends /r/ page

One of my favorite aspects of this item is the opportunity for data collecting.  The right side of each picture includes the numbers 1-3 and 1-10.  Just grab a dry erase marker and chart, or let the student chart, correct vs. incorrect productions!  The material includes cute and colorful pictures that illustrate each tongue twister for added fun!  This item is currently $15.97!

As always, SpeechPage does a great job of creating materials that are fun, easy to use, and will definitely stand the wear and tear of everyday use!  All three of these products are sure to make daily appearances in my therapy room and perhaps yours as well!
