I designed these articulation game boards to use with my daughter who had velar fronting and problems articulating the /k/ and /g/ sounds. She was diagnosed with a severe speech disorder at age 3, and I had to find fun and innovative ways to make speech practice fun daily. Her favorite thing was using game boards, and we used Shopkins toys as our game pieces. Some nights we played these games ten times, because she was obsessed with them. They are a great resource to send home with a child, because they require no prep and only two additional materials: a dice and a toy/ game piece. I also included these game boards in black & white, so they are easier to use in small groups.
Includes the Following:
9 Game Boards in Full Color
- 1 /t/ for /k/ Velar Fronting Game Board Initial Position
- 1 /d/ for /g/ Velar Fronting Game Board Mixed Position

I'm currently a speech-language pathology student at Western KY University. My first undergraduate degree is in middle grades math and English. I taught for four years before leaving education to stay home with my 2 and 4 year-old. I'm excited going to use these fun games with my speech kiddos some day. I hope you enjoy.
