Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments

The warm-up activities can include:

smile - mouth closed

smile - mouth open

make a police-car sound (nee-naw-nee-naw)

pretend to eat an apple (big mouth movements)

big "aah" sound (wide open mouth like a crocodile)

make a sound like a cat

rattle your lips


clean your lips with your tongue

clean your teeth with your tongue (might your tongue go all the way round)

Picture prompts for these actions can be used so that a child can choose which ones to do.

Go through a selection of the warm-up activities.

It is a good idea to do some general articulation exercises before doing these activities to get into the idea of doing speech practice.

Car racing game


A track drawn out with pictures for sounds to target;

Two toy cars;

A pen or pencil.

The child must be able to say the sounds on their own (if not this activity is not appropriate).

If the child has difficulty moving from one sound to another they need to go more slowly.

Remember to praise all the child's attempts, for example say "good try" whenever they have a go at saying the sounds, and "very good" if they say the words well (or well for them).

Dominos game

Cards with 2 pictures for sounds that the child can say individually on each card, on different coloured backgrounds. See: dominoes template (Word document).

Remember to praise and give feedback for all the child's attempts at saying both sounds clearly, for example say "good try" whenever they have a go at saying the sounds, and "very good" if they say the sounds well (or well for them).
