Hey there, speech therapy friends! Today, we’re diving into the wonderful world of coloring pages! Do your four year old speech therapy students love to color as much as mine do? I love to use coloring for engaging my students creativity while working on communication skills. So grab your crayons, kick back, and let’s chat about how these colorful wonders can supercharge your therapy sessions.

Engagement, Anyone?

First up, let’s talk about engagement. We all know that getting kids excited about speech therapy can sometimes feel like herding cats, right? But throw in a coloring page, and suddenly you’ve got their undivided attention. It’s like magic!

The Calm Before the Storm

Now, let’s talk about the calming effect of coloring. I have always found coloring to be a calming activity. As a kid, I remember loving putting a new set of crayons to paper and filling in those lines. As an adult, I rediscovered my love for coloring during a stressful time that you can read about here.

Now, let’s talk about articulation. I know what you’re thinking—how on earth do coloring pages help with speech sounds? Well, my friend, prepare to be amazed! What I love most about using coloring pages during articulation therapy is that I can have groups of students that are working on different sounds stay engaged with their activity with little intervention from me. I can work with each student on their specific sound while the rest of the group is engaged in coloring their last word that they worked on. This gives me a bit of time to really focus on each student in the group.

I have a group of preschool students who absolutely love coloring right now, and so I decided to create a set of coloring pages to target articulation. They worked out so well, I thought I would share them with you too! These Articulation Coloring Pages are great to use with any ages, but are especially great for your preschool and early elementary students. These articulation pages target 24 different sounds (blends included) with 60 pages of different pictures. Each page targets a different sound in either the initial, medial, or final position of words.
