PIRATE COVE GAME
FOR ARTICULATION PRACTICE
This Pirate game is designed for students working on various articulation sounds in sentences, but may also be used for articulation drill. Each card has a sentence related to a Pirate ship or treasure hunting activities. Most of the cards have at least one “R” word. Many cards also have “L” words. The game may also be used with any standard articulation sound cards you may already have. When I use the game board with younger students (not ready for sentence level work) I have them draw regular artic cards for the number of spaces they roll, and give one of the game-specific cards. The student is required to follow the directions on the card (lose a turn, get __ coins, take another turn, etc.) after repeating any of the words on the card that contain their target sound(s).
There is one master treasure chest picture for the (SLP) stash of coins (I found some plastic “gold” coins in the local dollar store that work well. Otherwise, you may choose to print out pages of paper coins (included) to use with the game.) There is a page of “mini treasure chests” that can be printed out to give each player a place to keep their coins during the game.
One game-board is provided and a template for 2 different sized die. I only use one die for this game, but some people prefer a larger size for their clients. There are more than 110 sentence cards for this game.
