The holiday downloads are busy at work in my speech room this week. I wanted to show you another new favorite from the preschool room! Train Articulation! What is it about that special blue engine that gets every boy under the age of 5 so excited? He seems to be especially bewitching to those students with autism. I’m sure I’m not the only SLP who hears scripted language from Sir Topham Hatt daily. Each card features one picture of a stimulus item. 48 page document T, D, P, B, M, F, K, G S, S blends 24 cards in the initial/final (12 each) position of each sound. 240 cards total plus Extra Blank Trains Each student is given a train station mat. Special cards for extra turns and losing turns are included. Directions: Game Version One: 1. Print all train cards. Print 3 copies of the special cards. Print a train station for each student. 2. Use the stations as student mats. Draw trains from the pile. Students say each train word. Students can keep the train if they say it correctly. The student with the most engines in their station wins. Game Version Two: 1. Print all trains. On the back of each train, write a number (1-5). 2. Give each student trains for their sound. 3. Play the game like war. Each student says their target word. Then flip the trains over to show a number. The student who has the higher number takes both cards for their pile. Your little guys are certain to love this! The pack also includes ‘cover sheets’. Trains with the sounds included on the front will help if you’re organizing your trains with paperclips or rubber bands like I did. The word lists are included for each sound. You can find it in my TPT Store.

These are adorable! My son LOVED trains as a kid and would have loved this too!
Great! I like how you put the pictures with the words – very helpful for my younger ones! Thanks!
This is great!
Do you have any ideas to teach preschoolers who are developmentally delayed (possibly going to be Asperger’s) social skills, for example, initiating conversation?
Jenna Rayburn says
Hi there! I just like to use play therapy for initiating with peers. I might give the child a direction (go to Kyle and ask him to play) or modeling the situations. Sometimes I write social narratives that describe the ways to initiate (wave, smile, say hi, etc.) Hope that helps!
Could you please respond back to the previous post? Thanks!
