Speech Time Fun


Use these cards with the popular board game, Taboo! Taboo is an incredibly fun game, and I've created these articulation cards so that you can adapt the game for fun, engaging, and authentic articulation practice in your speech room!


What awesome resources are included?
★ Twelve Taboo cards per sound placement
★ Blank cards to create your own


What goals are targeted by this product?
★ /r/ initial and final
★ /l/ initial and final
★ /th/ initial and final
★ /sh/ initial and final
★ /ch/ initial and final
★ /k/ initial and final
★ /s/ initial, final, and initial clusters


How can you use this product?
★ Split students into teams with at least two students on each team. Split up teams based on articulation targets to ensure the most productions.
★ One student of the team should be provided with a card (based on the articulation target). The student must provide clues to the other team members without using the “taboo” words listed.
★ Use the sand timer provided in the board game. If the team is able to guess the mystery word before the time runs out, they get a point. The team with the most points at the end is the winner.


What are other customers saying about this product?
"I really loved using these and my elder kids were surprised to see it wasn't so easy as they thought at first. This was enough to keep their attention and them actually enjoy what they were doing, especially when the teacher herself says one of those taboo words! Plenty giggles there! Thanks for some intellectual fun!"

"Love this - I love adapting popular games for therapy, and this game is great for mixed groups to work on artic and vocabulary. Thanks!"

"Taboo is my favorite game and you made it into a great speech activity I can use. I work as a SLPA in schools and just used this activity and it was a hit. My students were so excited to describe words and expand their vocabulary."
