I use this as a quick homework sheet or treatment session activity. If I have a child working on a particularly troublesome sound (/r/ comes to mind), I might use this as a way to reinforce a pattern that we’ve achieved or nearly have, and intersperse it with “challenge” activities.
Dot to Dot sheet that works with your target word (ex. “fairy”, (the dreaded) “squirrel”, “leaf”). I find great basic sheets at Color Mountain. I also love the Buki activity books. They have dot to dots for 1-10, others for 1-15 and still others with an alphabet series.
Pen or pencil for the child
How to Play
Use the highlighter to highlight dots every 4-6 spaces apart. As the child completes the puzzles, ask them to say the target word when they pass through the highlighted dot. For a slight increase in difficulty, you can have the child count too. Ex. “one–two–three–leaf–five–six–seven–eight–leaf”
Quick and easy.
