These articulation mats were designed to accompany the popular four in a row game. They make it easy for you to target your students' objectives while playing the game (no need for additional articulation cards or materials). Grab the game and these mats for a FUN therapy session that students will LOVE!
I started making game companions because I looked at all of my games and decided that I needed a way to make playing them more directly therapeutic! Don’t forget to check out my other game companions (custom category on the left).
⭐ This activity is available in a bundle with my language version.

How to play
→ Set up the four in a row game game according to the instructions provided in the box. Place a mat (with the desired target phoneme) in front of each student. Use the game pieces that come with the game and cover each of the circles on their mat. Play the game (each student taking a turn placing a piece in, trying to get four in a row). Each time they remove a piece from their mat, they will practice the word underneath (if you practice the word 4X per turn you will get over 100 trials per mat).
→ If you do not own the game, you can use the provided game board in this download. The game play is similar, except the students will be lining up the pieces on the game board mat on the circles (the goal is still to get four in a row).
→ Use as a drill mat: Have the student roll a die and practice the words that number of times. Tell the students they are trying to fill up their whole mat before the session is over.
