"Build Your Own Ice Cream" is a perfect general reinforcer game that can be used with a variety of speech/language targets with a variety of ages. Pick a mat and collect all the ice cream flavors and toppings on your mat to create a yummy sundae or delicious ice cream cone!
Or, use the open-ended mat and a die to create your very own ice cream concoctions!
Included are 6 pre-made mats with a variety of ice cream concoctions, along with cards of all the ice cream pieces (flavors, toppings) that go along with each mat. Students pick a mat and take turns flipping over ice cream pieces to see if it matches a picture on their mat. If it does, they keep it-- if not, they put it back. The first to get all the different pieces that make up the ice cream creation on their mat, wins!
Additionally, there is an option to use open-ended mats. With this option, students roll a die and pick pieces to build their own ice cream creations, and the first to collect all the necessary pieces wins! (For example, rolling a 1 or 2 would mean you get to pick a bowl/cone or a fruit topping. Roll a 3 or 4 and you get to choose your ice cream flavor, etc...)
This game is the perfect treat for speech therapy during hot summer days! But, let's be honest-- ice cream is good ANY time of year, so use this game all year round!
