Battling Boats!

Open-Ended Game for Lots of Fun! No-Prep/Low Ink!

This is a fun open-ended game that can be played in speech therapy sessions, in counseling sessions, in the classroom, or at home!

• How I use in Speech Therapy: I use this game while practicing speech therapy objectives. The students practice various speech targets between each turn!

*Counseling session: Play this with your client as you talk or work on counseling objectives.

• Classroom: Use in the classroom for fun days! Pair up the students and let them play!

• Home: I use this game with my kids in the van on our long road trips every summer! It is a fun way to entertain them without their heads stuck in electronics!

This goes perfectly with my Road Trip Packet CLICK HERE to see it!

Instructions: Give each player a Battling Boats game board (pages 4 and 5). Have the students mark their boats on the “My Boats” grid (the top grid). Make sure the opponent can not see their board.

Marking the boats: Outline the squares according to the boat key on the page. (For example: outline 5 squares for the aircraft boats, 4 for the fighter boat, 2 for the patrol boat, ect…). I encourage the students to use different colors for each boat.

Game Play: Take turns calling out squares on the board (example A1, B7, C8, D4, ect…).

On your turn: Call out a square, if your opponent says “hit” place an X in that square (you have hit one of their boats)! If your opponent says “miss” place a dot in that space (you did not hit one of their boats).

Opponent’s turn: When your opponent calls out a square that one of your boats is on, call out “hit” and place an X in that space. When a whole boat is marked with Xs call out “Battle Boat Sunk!”

Winning: The first person to sink all their opponents battle boats wins!
