Speech therapy grammar activities round-up to download and use now!

Grammar is one of the many areas SLPs address in speech therapy. It is critical to communication and academic success – speaking, comprehension, reading, writing, and more.

Did you know that students with specific language impairment and developmental language disorder have persistent grammatical deficits? And that poor syntactic structure is one of the main reasons for comprehension difficulties?

When it comes to language development and comprehension, one of the biggest culprits behind comprehension difficulties is poor syntactic structure. (Scott & Balthazar, 2010)

Grammar is an important area to work on that impacts other skills – and it encompasses A LOT of skills. Our goal is to help our students obtain a greater grasp of morphology and syntax to help them in meaningful communication whether that is in conversation, narration, or writing skills.

Simple grammar activities for speech therapy

One of the most comment objections i get when i talk about spelling/grammar intervention is, “but are my students ready for this”.

Specifically, I get this question a lot when it comes to building morphological awareness for the purpose of building reading and spelling skills.

Working on morphology, such as studying prefixes and suffixes, used to be considered something reserved for later elementary and secondary school.

But now we now know we can (and should) start working on it sooner rather than later (Bowers, Kirby, & Deacon, 2010).

This means that for any grammar strategy we use in speech therapy from early elementary on up, we want to make sure we’re hitting the right skills (like both inflectional and derivational affixes).

So what kind of students need this kind of intervention?

If your students have poor comprehension and vocabulary skills, you definitely want to include this type of intervention.

Additionally, if you have students who struggle with sentence structure and grammar, they could also be the missing link for them.

And of course, if you have kids who struggle to read and/or spell…and phonological awareness training doesn’t seem to be enough for them, adding a morphological component could be the piece they’re missing.

In this blog article, I outlined the results of a study by Apel and Henbest (2016) that showed students in 1 st , 2 nd , and 3 rd grade have the ability to use knowledge of affixes to infer meanings of unknown words.

This study also showed that morphological awareness skills are a unique predictor of word reading and reading comprehension; which means that students who don’t know meanings of affixes (i.e., suffixes and prefixes) are likely to have poor reading and spelling skills.

These are also students who are likely to end up on our caseload for language issues.

While phonological awareness and morphological awareness are correlated, we can’t always assume that addressing one will automatically result in the other improving.

Instead, we want to tie multiple linguistic features together(e.g., morphology, syntax, phonology, etc.; Apel & Lawrence, 2011).

Especially for those students who are in obvious need of some type of grammar intervention.

Fortunately, you as the SLP are in the unique position to help. Especially if you have a couple resources like the Word Study Toolkit for SLPs , and a protocol for using it in an evidence-based way.

So let’s lay the ground work for what you should actually be doing in therapy.

Here’s what you’ll need to do this protocol: A pencil. A piece of paper. 

And that’s pretty much it.

Just kidding…sort of. In theory, once you get good at this and have it “in your head”, you could deliver a killer therapy session with just these two things.

Effective grammar activities for speech therapy don’t have to involve massive lists of materials.

But, since sometimes we need some tools to help rest our brains (since I know you won’t necessarily want to memorize every single prefix and suffix), I’ll tell you a couple other materials that may come in handy as I’m explaining this.

Here’s the official materials list:

Dry erase board

Dry erase markers (dry erase board and markers could be in addition to or instead of pencil and paper)

List of prefixes and suffixes (could be an actual “list”, or could be sets of flashcards, or word bank on a worksheet).

The important thing to note is that you COULD integrate apps, grammar worksheets, flashcards, or even games when you do grammar activities for speech therapy, but you don’t HAVE to.

As long as you have something to write with you can do this…so having a limited budget isn’t a barrier to getting this done.

grammar activities for speech therapy

There are a couple good resources for SLPs planning grammar activities for speech therapy that include lists of prefixes and suffixes.

I include one in the Word Study Toolkit for SLPs , in addition some other sets of words that will help you build orthographic awareness skills that improve spelling.

Now that you know what materials you need, let’s get to the steps of the protocol:

Step 1: Use the prefixes/suffixes to say and write words

All you are doing here is picking a prefix or suffix, and thinking of words that would have that prefix/suffix on it. You could also start with the root or base word and then add prefixes or suffixes to that to come up with new words.

While you’re doing this, you can point out how words are spelled and how they are pronounced. This can help build phonological representations of the words (Sutherland, 2009).

You can also draw students’ attention to the way the different morphemes are spelled to build orthographic knowledge (Apel, 2011; Ram, Marinellie, Beningo, & McCarthy, 2013).

Eventually, we want our students’ ability to spell morphemes to be automatic so that they perceive the morpheme as a unit, rather than individual sounds. I explained why here in this article. 

Step 2: Explain what the words and word parts mean

There’s a chance you may be doing this simultaneously with the first step. Your grammar intervention will be equally effective either way. All you’re doing here is explaining what the word parts mean (each morpheme individually), and then explaining what the words mean altogether.

For example, a word like “retell” has the prefix “re”, which means “again”, and “tell”, which means “to explain or report”. Altogether, the word means “to explain again.”

Isolating the morphemes is important to doing grammar activities for speech therapy because even young students are capable of inferring meanings of unknown words using their knowledge of word parts.

Additionally, suffixes can change the class of words, which changes how we use them in sentences. Making our students aware of these subtle changes in word meaning can help our students use words effectively in context. This is a critical piece to making sure that our grammar activities for speech therapy are evidence-based.

If you feel like this could get boring, feel free to mix it up and vary your presentation, or add a game format. Here’s an example of how to add variety from Hallie Sherman from Speech Time Fun , where she uses some low-cost materials to turn prefix/suffix work in to a game.

Step 3: Have students practice using the words

This one is deceptively simple, but effective. Active and extended use of words is a critical part of grammar intervention because it helps solidify robust vocabulary knowledge (Walsh & Blewitt, 2006; Marulis & Neuman, 2010).

All we are doing here is giving our students the chance to practice using words in different contexts and situations, so they become more flexible with their language use.

This could be as simple as saying and writing sentences with words you’ve created with different affixes and roots, or it could involve reading/writing short stories using the words. You could also draw pictures or describe situations that relate to the words.

This activity doesn’t require a lot of planning and materials, so it’s ideal for an SLP doing grammar activities for speech therapy.

While there isn’t a set of materials required for you to do this, it can be helpful to have a few materials handy. This resource by Shannon Werbeckes from Speechy Musings is one of the best SLP-created resources I’ve been able to find on TpT, because she nails the “active and extended use” aspect with all of the extension activities with easy-to-use grammar worksheets.

I’ll be reviewing Shannon’s resource in depth along in an upcoming article, so be on the lookout for it.  She also has an overview and video with a description on her website in this blog post. 

grammar activities for speech therapy

If you work with kids with language disorders..

You’re probably already starting to realize that phonological awareness impacts reading performance.

Even so, I often get questions like:

“What if my students can’t read/are poor readers?” “Can I work on morphological awareness?” “Are they ready?”

If weak morphological awareness is contributing to their reading and spelling difficulties, the answer is, “Yes”.

 I share how to do that in the Word Study Toolkit for SLPs.

I’ve designed the Word Study Toolkit to give you a road map so you know exactly how you can support your students’ spelling and reading skills.  But I know you don’t have time to go digging for lists of prefixes, suffixes, roots/bases, and multiple meaning words. So I’ve done the grunt-work for you and put them in to the toolkit just for you. Here’s what’s inside the  Word Study Toolkit: ✅Over 200 flashcards with prefixes, root/base words, suffixes, and multiple meaning words to build strong reading and spelling skills. ✅ Word lists with key orthographic concepts, so you have a quick guide to important word parts needed for strong vocabulary skills. ✅ Descriptions of 17 key concepts for building morphology/orthography skills ✅ All flashcards and word lists have definitions, so your students actually remember how words are spelled. ✅ BONUS: Video tutorials with a quick-guide for using the toolkit to build reading and spelling skills.

You shouldn’t be spending hours each week trying to plan for therapy.

When you have a huge caseload and very little time to plan and prepare for therapy, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed- and guilty because all those things on your “to do” list were left unchecked. Because of all the paperwork and other tasks you have, you’ve barely had time to even focus on the most important piece of your job: providing therapy. You end up spending hours of precious time in your evenings doing more “work” tasks when you should be relaxing.

You start to wonder if you’re not the best SLP.

Can I ease your mind a little bit?

The truth is, it’s really stressful trying to provide individualized therapy for every child on your caseload, with everything else you’ve got going on at work. Meetings, testing, piles and piles of paperwork.

You’re not bad at your job. In fact, you’re amazing: you just need the right time-saving tools.

In fact, you deserve them.

Step Three:

Provide fun and effective therapy

At The Pedi Speechie, I know that you want to provide the best speech therapy possible. In order to do that, you need time to research, plan, and prepare. The problem is that so many other tasks at your job (paperwork, meetings, etc.) make it difficult to do this, and you get overwhelmed and stressed.

I believe that you should have the speech and language resources you need at your fingertips so you can get more accomplished in therapy without the additional stress and workload. I understand that high caseload sizes and complex and individualized student needs can make your job as a pediatric or school SLP daunting. I have over 10 years of experience in pediatric outpatient and school SLP settings, and have rigorously tested my materials and activities in my own therapy room- so you can trust that The Pedi Speechie resources will help your speech and language students make progress, and allow you to find that work-home life balance that you deserve.

It involves various components, such as vocabulary, grammar, articulation, and social interaction. However, many individuals face challenges in verbal expression, which can impact their overall communication skills and social interactions.

Common challenges in verbal expression include difficulties with articulation, limited vocabulary, poor grammar and syntax, and struggles in engaging in meaningful conversations. These challenges can hinder individuals from effectively expressing themselves and connecting with others.

Benefits of Speech and Language Therapy Worksheets

Speech and language therapy worksheets offer numerous benefits in promoting language development, enhancing communication skills, and improving social interaction. These worksheets provide structured exercises and activities that target specific areas of verbal expression, making the learning process more engaging and effective.

By using speech and language therapy worksheets, individuals can:

Promote Language Development

Language development is crucial for effective verbal expression. Speech and language therapy worksheets provide opportunities for individuals to expand their vocabulary, learn new words, and improve their understanding of language concepts. These worksheets often include exercises that focus on word associations, categorization, and semantic relationships, helping individuals develop a strong foundation in language skills.

Enhance Communication Skills

Effective communication involves more than just using words. It requires individuals to understand non-verbal cues, interpret social contexts, and engage in meaningful conversations. Speech and language therapy worksheets incorporate activities that target these skills, such as role-playing scenarios, practicing turn-taking, and understanding emotions. By engaging in these activities, individuals can enhance their communication skills and become more confident in expressing themselves.

Improve Social Interaction

Verbal expression is closely tied to social interaction. Individuals who struggle with verbal expression may find it challenging to connect with others and build meaningful relationships. Speech and language therapy worksheets include exercises that focus on social skills, such as initiating conversations, maintaining eye contact, and understanding social cues. These activities help individuals improve their social interaction skills, leading to more successful and fulfilling relationships.

Types of Speech and Language Therapy Worksheets

Speech and language therapy worksheets come in various types, each targeting specific areas of verbal expression. Here are some common types of worksheets:

Articulation Worksheets

Articulation worksheets focus on improving speech sound production. They include exercises that help individuals practice specific sounds and correct any articulation errors. These worksheets often include visual cues and prompts to assist individuals in producing sounds accurately.

Vocabulary-Building Worksheets

Vocabulary-building worksheets aim to expand an individual’s vocabulary. They include activities that introduce new words, reinforce word meanings, and encourage word usage in different contexts. These worksheets may involve matching words with their definitions, completing sentences with appropriate words, or categorizing words based on their meanings.

Grammar and Syntax Worksheets

Grammar and syntax worksheets focus on improving sentence structure and grammar skills. They include exercises that target various grammar rules, such as subject-verb agreement, verb tenses, and sentence formation. These worksheets often involve filling in the blanks, rearranging words to form grammatically correct sentences, and identifying errors in sentence structure.

Conversation and Social Skills Worksheets

Conversation and social skills worksheets aim to improve individuals’ ability to engage in meaningful conversations and understand social cues. These worksheets include activities that focus on turn-taking, topic initiation, active listening, and understanding non-verbal cues. They may involve role-playing scenarios, practicing social greetings, or identifying emotions based on facial expressions.

How to Use Speech and Language Therapy Worksheets

Using speech and language therapy worksheets effectively involves setting goals and objectives, incorporating the worksheets into therapy sessions, and monitoring progress to adjust strategies accordingly.

Setting Goals and Objectives

Before using speech and language therapy worksheets, it is essential to identify the specific areas of verbal expression that need improvement. Set clear goals and objectives that are measurable and achievable. For example, a goal could be to improve articulation by correctly producing specific sounds or to expand vocabulary by learning a certain number of new words.

Incorporating Worksheets into Therapy Sessions

Integrate speech and language therapy worksheets into therapy sessions to provide structured practice and reinforcement. Start with activities that match the individual’s current skill level and gradually increase the difficulty level as they progress. Use the worksheets as a guide to target specific skills and provide feedback and guidance during the sessions.

Monitoring Progress and Adjusting Strategies

Regularly monitor the individual’s progress by tracking their performance on the worksheets. Assess whether they are meeting the set goals and objectives and make adjustments to the strategies if needed. If certain areas are not improving as expected, consider modifying the approach or seeking guidance from a speech language pathologist.

Additional Strategies to Enhance Verbal Expression

While speech and language therapy worksheets are valuable tools, there are additional strategies that can further enhance verbal expression:

Encouraging Storytelling and Narrative Skills

Storytelling and narrative skills play a significant role in verbal expression. Encourage individuals to share their stories, whether real or imaginary, and guide them in organizing their thoughts and structuring their narratives. This practice helps improve their ability to express ideas coherently and engage listeners.

Engaging in Role-Play and Pretend Play Activities

Role-play and pretend play activities provide opportunities for individuals to practice different social scenarios and develop their communication skills. Encourage them to take on different roles, express themselves in various contexts, and engage in interactive play with others. These activities help individuals become more comfortable in expressing themselves and understanding social dynamics.

Using Visual Aids and Prompts

Visual aids and prompts can support individuals in verbal expression by providing visual cues and reminders. Use pictures, charts, or diagrams to help individuals understand and remember vocabulary words, grammar rules, or conversation strategies. Visual aids can enhance comprehension and facilitate the transfer of knowledge into practical communication skills.
