In my opinion, a school-based speech-language pathologist can never have too many speech therapy materials that relate to practicing the /R/ sound. The more the merrier, that’s what I always say, so that’s exactly why I wanted to share with you my most recent one. My students love this speech therapy material to pieces, so without further ado, I present to you . . .
Totally awesome paper speech cubes for the /R/ sound!

Now, I know what you might be thinking, “What’s so special about paper cubes?! I’ve been making those in my speech therapy room for years.” I know, but these paper cubes are different. I designed these bad boys to actually have faces and arms holding stuff. Trust me, your students will have a blast making and playing with these paper speech cubes while practicing their /R/ sound. For real!
Get ready for some paper speech cube /R/ fun!
All together, there are 4 different /R/ characters you can make.
- A rabbit holding a rattlesnake
- A robot holding a rose and a rocket
- A rhino holding a radish and a rattle
- A rat holding some rice and a rock
I also included 2 blank sheets so that you and your students can create your very own paper speech cubes, too! Good times? You bet!
In closing . . .
What do you think? Are these paper speech cubes something that your students would be fans of? I sure hope so! As always, I hope this little speech therapy idea makes you and your speech therapy students smile! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. It’s always so great to hear from fellow SLPs.
