SLP Activity of the Week: Trash Talk
Thank you to Nanette Cote of the Speech 2 Me blog (and @speech2me on Instagram) for posting her photo (left) of this great activity created by our mutual friend and crazy speech girl, Jenn Alcorn of Crazy Speech World!
We would like to share with you Jenn’s original post that she made about “Trash Talk” back in 2012.

I don’t normally talk trash. Welllll, except during football season! <wink>!
And I never teach my students to until now… But it’s not what you think, I promise!
I found this activity, Trash or Treasure? on Pinterest and I knew I could make this speech related, so I did! Introducing…Trash Talk! What is Trash Talk you ask? Well very similar to the Trash or Treasure game but adapted to target articulation of /r, s, l/ words. I took special interest to find Dolch words with these sounds in each position, as well as blends! I am excited to be able to work on artic AND sight word recognition.
How can you start your own Trash Talk? Keep on reading!First things first, you will need a “trash can”. I used an empty lysol wipes container, but anything with a top will work. Then I put the labels on (I included them in the download) and fashioned it with some more of my awesome polka dot duct tape…I seriously love this stuff, can’t get enough, and vow to cover anything I can with it! You could also use decorative paper or even plain paper to cover yours. Get creative!
