Our Play Menus for Speech and Language Development provide a fun and engaging way to target difficult speech sounds including: /r/, /l/, /s/, /j/, /ch/, /sh/, /th/ /zh/.
Having a tea party or playing restaurant is an amazingly fun and effective way to increase vocabulary, while also developing language, math and social skills. One mention of a tea party and kids come running from every direction! You can role play with your child and target specific sounds goals (e.g., in the ice cream shop you can target that tricky /r/ (initial and medial) by ordering a delicious rouge watermelon popsicle or a lime ripple sherbet. You can target initial /s/: by ordering sausage and pancakes with strawberry topping for breakfast, followed by spaghetti and salad for lunch. Menus also help to develop print awareness, a skill that leads to early reading development.
