This peg game is a simple and fun deck of BOOM CARDS™ that will get a bunch of repetitions in articulation therapy with older students! It's also a great way to quickly collect data for a baseline or complete progress monitoring, as each sound is separated by word position, plus each vocalic /r/ and consonant blend has its own card.
From the menu card, click on the button for the sound/blend/word position that you’d like to target to go to that card.
- initial, medial, and final /f, v, th, s, z, sh, ch, j, l/
- initial /r/
- vocalic /ar, er, air, ire, ear, or/
- /r/ blends: /br, dr, fr, gr, kr, pr, tr, rl/
- /s/ blends: /sk, sm, sn, sp, st, sw/
- /l/ blends: /bl, fl, gl, kl, pl, sl/
**There is also an OPEN-ENDED card at the end of the deck where you can add your own target words!
There are 98 cards of play, which means many sounds/blends have multiple cards. Play the game while practicing each word by itself or in a phrase or sentence.
**When playing in teletherapy with students that are not able to take remote control of the mouse, there are numbers on the pegs for the students to specify which peg they'd like moved.
Please note that this activity is designed to be used with OLDER students that can read (single words) or will have the assistance of a teacher/therapist/parent to help them identify the target words. The words chosen are not all nouns that can be pictured with images, and the game graphics appeal to a more mature in appearance. The game itself is a form of brain teaser, which is more complex that other articulation activities you may use. For these reasons, this activity is designed for slightly older kids.
