Merry Christmas! This season I’ve been inspired by my location. You see, in 2/3 of my buildings my speech office is located directly next to the music room. Let’s skip the Bah Humbug comments about recorders and hearing ‘Dreidel, Dreidel’ 12 times a day, plus those poor ADHD/ASD kids with short attention spans. I decided if I can’t beat them, join them! My articulation students have been re-composing the 12 Days of Christmas song to include their target sounds. You can have your students do the same with this free 12 Day of Articulation Christmas Craftivity! Give each student one blank ‘12 days’ paper. Provide students with articulation lists for their target sound. I also used my 40,000 Selected Wordsbook. You NEED this if you don’t have it! My ‘ng’ kid is my hardest! Write lyrics for each 12 parts of the story which include their articulation sound in each part. Use the included original version to help! Illustrate each part. Color the holly and paste it on construction paper with the 1’2 Days’ paper. Here are a few examples! An /r/ song and an /r/ song all about dogs at Christmas! A third grader in speech class Two twinkling stars Three loving hearts Four Christmas wreaths FIVE CHRISTMAS TREES Six opened presents Seven Christmas carols Eight fuzzy ear muffs Nine flying reindeer Ten broken ornaments Eleven hot cocoas Twelve holly berries I promise you will practice SO many words you will have boatloads of data at the word, phrase, and SONG level 😉 My kids were BEGGING me to come to speech an extra day and finish their projects. I promised them this week we will go ‘caroling’ to get some extra practice! Hop over to my TpT Site and download this free craftivity! Make sure you leave feedback!
