Here's some examples ideas for structured speech and language activities that can be used to target a variety of goals including turn taking, articulation, sequencing, describing, following directions:

- Create a book to describe a recent family event (birthday, vacation, holiday, family outing). Use photos and drawings to describe what happened. Ask your child wh (who, where, when, what, why) questions about the event. Have them retell the story using sequence words (first, then, next, last).

- Play "I spy". Have your child find things in their environment with their speech sound. You can put some items in a clear container. Take turns using descriptive  language to describe the items. Have them describe the items using descriptive vocabulary (attributes, function, color, pattern, size, category, etc). 

- Make some food! Practice following directions while having your child find the ingredients in the kitchen. Talk about the action words in the directions (dump, mix, stir, pour). After you make the food, sequence what happened. As you enjoy the treat, describe the food. 

- Listen to stories together on https://www.storylineonline.net/.

 Pause the story to talk about images you see on the page with your articulation sounds. Talk about what might happen next. At the end of the story, practice retelling the story using sequence words. Talk about the problems within the story and how the character solved the problem.
