Use these ideas in one of the activities you do for promoting the use of target sounds in connected speech (for example: "use k and s in connected speech"). Only use self-monitoring strategies in a few of the total activities you do.

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

Smiley Face Chart with between 3 and 10 smiley faces on it

Coloured pen

Tell the child that when they are doing the next activity, they get to give themselves smiley faces. They are allowed to tick or colour a smiley face whenever they say /k/ or /s/ in a word.

If they are able to colour the whole chart, they could earn a small reward, e.g. a sticker.

Children love correcting adults, so you could take a turn and deliberately get some wrong (or have a puppet do this).

Record and review

Tape recorder and cassette, or Dictaphone (something to record on)

Paper and pen

Focus on the words the child says accurately and praise them for using their sounds.
