Looking for a different way to target articulation goals? My students are loving playing Poke-a-Dot, and I am sure yours will as well! This finger-twisting game is easy to use. Simply print, laminate, put the dice together, and you're all set. All of the sounds you could possibly need are included in this packet!
★ One finger die to indicate which finger the student should use during that turn.
★ One color die to indicate on which color the student should place his/her finger.
★ One twisting mat per phoneme (featuring phonemes /p/, /b/, /m/, /n/, /t/, /d/, /k/, /g/, /f/, /v/, /l/, l-blends, /s/, /z/, s-blends, /r/, r-blends, “sh”, “th”, “ch”). Initial, medial, and final positions are combined on each mat.
★ Total: 20 mats
★ Roll both dice at the same time.
★ Finger die – this die demonstrates which finger the student should during one turn.
★ Color die – this die showcases on which color the student should place his/her finger.
★ Note: The red X square means lose a turn and the rainbow square means the student can select the color of his/her choice.
★ The student must produce the word correctly on the circle on which he/she chooses to place his/her finger in order to successfully move the finger there.
★ The game lasts as long as the therapist desires. Struggling to make a move or did the fingers get twisted up? Play again!
Variation of Play:
★ If using this activity with younger students, omit the finger die and simply use the color die.
★ Use bingo chips or daubers instead of fingers.
★ Have the student roll the color die, produce the phoneme correctly on a circle that matches the color that he or she rolled, and then cover that circle.
★ The student should only cover the circle if he or she produces the sound/word/phrase/sentence correctly.
★ The student who covers all circles first is the winner.
