• Articulation and Language Fruit Stand Game Companion Mats for Speech TherapyMaterials Needed:
Articulation Fruit Stand mat, (game not included with this download, must be purchased separately). Color and black and white versions included! I prefer using the black and white version during the game and then sending it as homework after the session. Optional materials: play dough, crayons/markers, bingo dotters, or bingo chips.
Two ways to to play and practice articulation:
►Play as directed (stack all the fruit in the stand and remove one by one trying not to make the fruit fall out of the stand). As the student removes a fruit with the tweezers, they will place it on their mat and practice the target word (the therapist will determine the number of trials per turn). The object of the game is to not make the fruit fall out of the stand!
►Line up fruit on the mat before you play. As the students practice the word, they can use the tweezers to place the fruit on the stand (you can replace a new piece of fruit on their mat to practice the word again). After all of the fruit is in the stand, you can play the game as directed and practice the words again!
•Use play dough to smash over the fruit on the mat or make play dough fruit
•Use bingo chips to place over the circles.
•Use the black & white version as a coloring sheet while practicing articulation.
•Use bingo dotters with the black and white version for a low ink/no prep activity (or to send as homework).
