This is an articulation game for R-Blends. It is meant to be used with a Connect 4 game. You must provide your own Connect 4 game. I have included data sheets to help monitor progress. There are both color and black/white printable pages provided depending on your printer access.
1. Pick the sheet for the sound you want to target (one for each child). For more than two children, play in teams. Set it up as shown in the picture on the cover. There are 15 words per sheet for each target sound.
2. Cover each picture with a disk from the game.
3. Play the game according to the standard Connect 4 directions. As the child picks up a circle, have him say the name of the picture underneath. To get more practice, he can say it multiple times, or use the word in a sentence. Play the game many times in one session times since it can go fast.

My kids have enjoyed this game. The younger kids may not know Connect 4 rules, but just like putting in the disks. There are lots of chances to practice sounds when you play a fast-paced game of R-Blend Drop-in Articulation with Connect 4!
