Snowman roll, say and cover is a fun game to play in a group. All you need is dice and some pretty buttons to set this game up. The frequency of /s/ in the English Language is abundant, and in nearly every spontaneous sentence will contain many /s/ sounds.

S Words Speech Therapy Medial S Sound Games
There are a number of reasons why children don’t pronounce the ‘s’ sound properly as they are learning it. It’s essential we give them plenty of activities and practice to help them develop their s initial, medial and ending sounds.
Games help engage children in the skill at hand without them feeling like it’s a part of learning. Have you ever struggled to get your students to sit down and complete a worksheet? I’m not opposed to worksheets per se, but I do frown upon them, especially if there’s no real engagement coming from the child.
This is why I like to create learning games. They are definitely a way to help kids engage with the content or skill you’re teaching.
