Initial S: Free Speech Therapy Articulation Picture Flipbook

Make Your Own Initial /s/ Flipbook From Free Printable

I recommend you print on cardstock and laminate for durability.


This is a modification of my free one-syllable initial /s/ card set. The first 5 cards are designed to be subjects placed into the initial position of the flipbook. The next 6 cards are verbs meant to be placed into the second position of the flipbook. The final 19 cards are objects to be placed into the third position in the flipbook. There are a total of 570 different silly sentences containing 2-3 initial /s/ words that can be made using this DIY flipbook.

Directions for Making the Flipbook

  • Print cards on cardstock and cut apart.
  • Punch holes in the center top of each card.
  • Make a cover and back for your flip book using cardboard or two pieces of cardstock glued together. Punch three holes in the top of your cover and back. (Alternately, just put cards into a 3-ring binder.)
  • Put the subject cards in the first hole and tie in place with string, yarn, dental floss, or anything else you have around that will work. Put the action cards in the center spot and the object cards in the final spot.
  • Write in some sort of title on the cover and use with students.

You could do this with any of my cardsets. When I had the idea to try to make a flipbook I noticed that most of my cardsets have a few action words and plenty of object words. The sets tend to be light on words that make sense as subjects though. So supplement the subject words you find in any set with the "I, We, You, and They" cards above in first position. Then just sort through the other cards in the set to find additional subject, action, and object words and make as many flipbooks as you'd like.


I give permission to copy, print, or distribute this card set flipbook provided that:
  1. Each copy makes clear that I am the document's author.
  2. No copies are altered without my express consent.
  3. No one makes a profit from these copies.
  4. Electronic copies contain a live link back to my original and print copies not for merely personal use contain the URL of my original.

  1. Soooo appreciating these!!!!! thanks!!!

  2. What a great idea. I am going to add picture to the pronouns that include he and she. Thanks for creating this great resource.

  3. This has been a God send,truly!!! I am so grateful for this website!!!!

  4. Do you have any activities/games to help preschoolers to speak correctly in present tense and past tense? I am working with my 5 year old nephew and he often struggles with the wrong tense. For example, he might say, "Mom, did I got salt on my eggs?" instead of "Mom, did I get salt on my eggs?"
