This game board can be used when focusing on phonological/articulation goals, specifically the initial consonant sequence pattern of the s-cluster “sp.” "Match the Spoon" may be used to focus the child’s listening on the sp-cluster or be used in remediation to create the opportunity for multiple productions of the sp-cluster in a short game. This game may also be used while focusing on oral language vocabulary, question answering, imitation, or language expansion.
This game is fun to use when working with individual children or groups of children. It can also be sent home as a practice game to reinforce the generalization of the speech sound pattern of the consonant sequence (initial s-cluster) SP or the skill of matching. It can be used with children with speech or language needs, children with autism, or children with intellectual disabilities.
This game is convenient for teachers/therapists when traveling between itinerant service locations, for therapists or special education teachers moving between classrooms, or for classroom teachers/therapists/homeschoolers who want organized, easy storage of materials. It is also simple to make copies for students to send home so students may share the song with their family.
