Print the pages you need and laminate! You could also place them in page protectors to save time.
→ Color version suggested use: Roll play dough into little balls to start off the activity (I usually have this prepped but students also like to do this). Have the student say each target word and place a ball on top of each balloon. After they have filled up all of the balloons, they will “pop” the balloons by squishing the play dough and practice the words again (therapist will determine the number of trials for each word).
→ Black & White version suggested use: Students will use bingo dotters, crayons, or markers to color in each balloon as they practice the target words. These are great for homework pages!
→ No Print: Just open up on an iPad (or other device) and play! Fully interactive "tap-able" PDF! The student will tap a balloon and it will pop revealing a target word.
→ Variations (for print versions)
• Use bingo chips to cover up the balloons after you practice the target words.
• Use dry erase markers to color the balloons after your practice them.
• Use small toys to place on the balloons after you practice the target words.
