I created this game for a student with selective mutism because I couldn't find anything that was "fun enough" for her to want to imitate oral motor actions and facial expressions! It has been great for bridging the gap from silly expressions to mouthing speech sounds, as well as helping her practice her non-verbal communication skills with others. Odd Banana Out! is designed to target:
Play "Old Maid" and "Go Fish" style or use the cards for a memory game. I also included emotion words that can be matched to each monkey!
