This week we are featuring another item from our Speech Pals series. Speech Pals: ch, j by Worldwide Speech can be purchased individually or as a part of Speech Pals – Mega Bundle by Worldwide Speech or Speech Pals: Later Sounds Bundle by Worldwide Speech | TpT all for great prices!


What is it?

Today we are sharing another product from our Speech Pals Series. We’ve shown you our “r” Speech Pals (r-blends, vocalic/ r/, and prevocalic /r/. Now we want to branch out to other sounds! Let’s be real, there are far fewer products out there for /ch/ and /j/ than those for /r/ target sounds. It’s great to have this product in my “digital therapy bag” for a quick, fun, and easy activity that’s no-print, no-prep.

The /ch/ and /j/sounds can be tough but successfully achieved through repeated practice. Our Speech Pals Series takes that into account. We want you to get as many repetitions with as little prep work as possible. By the conclusion of the PowerPoint, the phoneme is targeted 58 times in each position!

Additionally, the characters in Speech Pals are diverse and often find themselves in silly situations. Also, various parts of speech are represented by the target words, rather than just nouns, as are typically seen in articulation therapy materials.

In this product, each target sound is represented by a main character (whose name includes that target), plus 9 target words. Each word is in the form of a colorful image that will “fly-in” from various directions, keeping children focused and engaged.

Who is it for?

Speech Pals: ch, j by Worldwide Speech is a no-prep must-have for articulation therapy, either in-person or virtual, for both readers and non-readers. You and your students will love these fun PowerPoint slides, as they practice the speech sounds “ch” and “j” in the initial, medial, and final positions, at the word level, in short sentences, and in long sentences with multiple targets.

How to use it?

To use, click on the slide number corresponding to the sound you want to work on. Open “Present / Slide Show” mode. Click for each image to “fly-in” or to transition to the next page. Students can read or imitate the target words and sentences. This PowerPoint presentation can be used for individual and group therapy, during in-person and telepractice sessions.
