More than 100 make-and-take activities are highly motivating to young children and evoke lots of articulation practice in each session.
- Practice articulation of seventeen consonant sounds in isolation and at the syllable, word, sentence, and carryover levels
There are 17 phoneme units:
- h, p, b, m
- k, g
- t, d
- f, v
- s, z
- r, l
- sh, ch
Each unit has activities to practice the target sound in the initial, medial, and final positions. Captivating art adds to the fun and excitement of each activity.
Children cut, paste, and color these activities in every unit:
- syllable practice sheets
- picture scenes with corresponding picture squares
- folder activities
The following activities vary from unit to unit:
- finger puppets
- pop up straw figures
- story mobiles
- accordion animals
- flip books
- picture wheels

- Impairment in phonology and speech production impedes the development of effective communication, language, and/or speech (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
- Speech-sound intervention should facilitate correct productions across word positions and linguistic units (Bernthal & Bankson, 2004).
- Speech-sound intervention involves facilitation of newly-acquired articulation abilities to a variety of speaking, listening, and literacy-learning contexts (ASHA, 2004).
Scissors, Glue, and Artic, Too! incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.
