    Love your ideas! I also love using music ("silly songs") to teach and the puppets are a wonderful addition. You also do a wonderful job following the child's lead. I've also found that music often helps children with apraxia transition from single words to phrases but mostly, as you aptly point out, the opportunity for LOTS of repetition in a quick, fun manner that takes the pressure off the child. Thanks for sharing!
