Products in this Bundle (2)
These articulation and language mats were designed to accompany the popular four in a row game. They were designed to make it easy for you to target your students' objectives while playing the game (no need for additional articulation/language 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).

How to play
→Set up the four in a row game according to the instructions provided in the box. Place a mat (with the desired articulation/ language target) 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 will take 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 skill/word on the mat in the circle.
→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 practice each skill and place a piece over the circle after each one. Tell the students they are trying to fill up their whole mat before the session is over. Cover up the circles with play-dough, bingo chips, or checkers! You could also use play dough to smash over the circles.
