/R/ Loaded Paragraphs for Christmas

Today I'm sharing my /R/ Loaded Paragraphs for Christmas with you.  I have several kids working on their carryover skills and couldn't find any /r/ packed paragraphs to send home for practice, so I made some!  This download has four paragraphs for you to cut out and use individually or as a set.  Each one describes an event that commonly occurs at Christmas, and finishes with an opportunity for conversation about the event.  I don't know about you, but I find making that leap from saying the /r/ sound correctly while reading to using it correctly in spontaneous conversation is very difficult for many of my kids.  I'm hoping giving them a structured topic will help.

I am also planning to use these paragraphs with my kids who are improving their auditory memory skills.  Each one describes a sequence and is packed with details to remember.  I can think of several who, what, where and when questions to ask about each one!  *Update:  I've added a worksheet for details/sequencing to the download.  I plan to use this worksheet for data collection.


Would you like a copy? You can download them from my TpT store.

    1. Let me know how they work for you. By the way, did you see my comment on your last post? I'm wondering where you get your clip art for your stim card targets.

  8. I love, love, love these! I used both the /s/ and /r/ ones with my kiddos before Christmas and found them to be extremely helpful with carryover. I'm hoping you're planning more for winter/valentines/spring, etc...? And, maybe some other sounds (th, sh, ch, for example). These were so useful, I'd definitely be willing to buy them on tpt.
