Practice target sounds (/s/ blends, /l/ blends, /r/ blends) while growing your garden. But watch out for the caterpillars! They will eat your garden up!
Garden articulation targets /l/ blends, /s/ blends, and /r/ blends in initial position at the word level.
This unit includes:
45 Initial /l/ Blends Playing Cards
72 Initial /s/ Blends Playing Cards
63 Initial /r/ Blends Playing Cards
9 Caterpillar Playing Cards
4 Garden Boards
Each student receives one garden board. Mix in caterpillar playing cards in with target sound cards of your choice and place face down on table. Students take turns drawing a card and practice the target word on the card. Once they have practiced the target word on the card they can place the card in their garden. If the student draws a caterpillar card, they must put the number of flower cards specified back in the pile. Who ever ends up with the most flowers in their garden at the end wins!
This game is most appropriate for students who are able to read since target words are presented in print, but not in pictures.
I hope you enjoy!
