Product Description
Ant Launching Mat Game Companion for Speech Therapy (Articulation)

Do you need a super fun activity to keep your articulation students engaged? This activity will do the trick! This activity was designed as a companion to the game Ants in My Pants (game must be purchased separately). This product is offered at a deep discount because it pairs only with this specific game! (a typical price for an activity with this many pages would be around $10.00 ore more!).

Color AND black & white! Low Prep! Ink Friendly Options!

This activity was designed to be a simple, no-prep activity to target articulation in an engaging way.
Materials Needed: Launching pad mats, plastic hopping frog toy, pond/lily pads (optional)
Optional: play dough, bingo chips, bingo dotters, crayons
I bought the game on Amazon Click Here to view it but it is also available in many local toy stores.

Materials Needed: Launching mats, game, optional picnic blanket or pants mat
Optional: play dough, bingo chips, bingo dotters, crayons

To use: Set the launching mats in front of the student (by target phoneme). I do this activity on the floor to allow more jumping space. Line up the plastic jumping ants from the game over the ants on the mat. Set up the game and/or pants/picnic blanket mats directly in front of the ant mats (I use the game and the mats to give the students more chances to land on something). As they launch each ant (by pushing down on the tab on the back of the ant), the student will practice the word in the circle (the therapist will determine the number of trials per frog, 13X per ant will = +100 trials). At the end of the round, your students will count how many of their ants landed in the pants or on that mats (you can make it a contest!). I suggest doing a couple practice jumps to gauge the distance needed for the game.
