Kids just love dice games and this one is no exception!!! Students roll the dice, practice saying target words and climb to the top of their “word columns” to win the game!!! What a great way to encourage articulation drills. This product was made with the non-reader in mind. It is great for group therapy, especially when the students have different target sounds. Each student can work on their own sound while playing this game with other students in the group. Ten or eleven gameboards included for each sound for variety.
• Print game boards om regular paper for each student... each student should have a different gameboard with their target sound.
• One die for each student playing the game is needed (not included)
DIRECTIONS FOR PLAY ( 2 or more players)
• Choose the board or boards you wish to use with your students. Student should have different boards even if working on the same target sound. Each student gets his or her own individual game board.
• Choose a player to start the game. The player rolls his/her die. He/she then locates that number on his/her game board and verbally names the picture that corresponds with the die number rolled. Starting at the bottom the student then writes that word a box in the appropriate column. For younger students rather than write the word in a box, the player can color a box using crayons. Play then moves to the next player. For example: If the student rolls a 5, he/she will say “ balloons “ with appropriate /l/ sound production. If appropriate, the student can also be asked to use the word in a sentence then he/she writes “balloons“ in or colors the first box in that column starting at the bottom.
• The first player to reach the top of any word column wins the game. For longer therapy sessions the winner can be the first student to reach the top of 2, 3, 4, 5 or all word columns. The therapist can determine this prior to the start of the game.
