Giving kids specific sound practice in consonant-vowels, words, and phrases
Some children need practice saying specific speech sounds and combining them in words and phrases. Drills for Sounds Song Set 3 offers that practice. Our Drills for Sounds Song Set 3, combined with our Blast Off Board Sound Sequencing Set, will give you a complete program that is so much more fun than flashcards!

What others say about Drills for Sounds
It’s all about good material! I am a speech-language pathologist who found myself in a preschool classroom for children with severe articulation disorders. I knew I needed something to motivate them for the hard work ahead. I was looking for enticing speech-language practice that could help get them pronouncing sounds and words. Drills for Sounds does just that! It emphasizes specific speech sounds in a fun way. I love the Vowel song as it gives kids practice combining vowels. It’s hard to find any published material that helps with vowels, and this is awesome. This set also contains songs emphasizing k, f, sh, t+n, w, and many more. In addition, there is a file of visuals to print out that illustrate each song. They are great for giving home practice to students!

Summertime drill! I’ve had this CD for a while and decided to get it out and use it this summer with my articulation kids for some summer fun! Although it says “drill” the kids don’t know it is drill! They are just learning new songs and want to do them again and again. Practice those sounds!! Let’s me change things up for the summer. The pictures are fun too!
– Elizabeth Straka, Speech-Language Pathologist
These songs are great for helping kids learn how to pronounce their sounds the correct way and practice. They are lots of fun and the kids enjoy them. Very catchy tunes.

This is my favorite CD for working on articulation sounds with my younger students. They get so excited when we use these songs to target their sounds. Lots of repetition and catchy instructions for placement as well.

These songs and visuals are a must for working with kids with apraxia of speech, in particular. (They’re also super for a plain ol’ speech delay.) Add a little video modeling, an echo mic for auditory feedback, a mirror for visual feedback, some tactile & kinesthetic cues (along the lines of the PROMPT method), a swing for vestibular stimulation (if you can) and you’ve got a recipe for success! I’ve used these brilliant materials for over a decade. I’ve had so many little ones (with autism, seizure disorder, or straight up CAS) go from being mute to being a motor mouth. The songs are also a great energizer and motivator for kids with syndromes who just need to add final consonants or build their spoken vocabulary. The songs are also great for circle time in a special ed room. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your creative talents!
