I designed this game for the students who just need a little bit more practice of their articulation target sound(s) in isolation so that it stabilizes before we move onto a syllable level. It can be a really boring process, and many of the students lose interest. This game keeps therapy fun and keeps the kids moving! It’s easy to play in individual or group sessions. You can use it as sound warm ups at the beginning of a session, too.
This is a very open ended type of game, and you can find lots of other uses for it as well:
- Movement breaks in therapy (print the cards only if you want to use it for this purpose. You can even glue them on popsicle sticks)
- Teaching action words through doing
- Pair with other articulation targets and use the game at more advanced phases of articulation therapy
- Cards can be used as reinforcers
Pages 6 - 11 : Six pages of movement cards
Pages 12 - 17: Six pages to be stuck on the back of the movement cards. Cut out pages 6-17 and glue on the backs of the cards. Laminate for durability.
Page 18: If you want to save on coloured ink, print 3 copies of this page on blue cardstock, and 3 copies on yellow cardstock (to replace pages 11-17 as the back part of the cards)
Page 19: Game board. Laminate for durability.
Page 20 - 21: Sheets on which the game cards will be stored during the game. There are 2 options available. You can use page 20 if you are using this game to stabilize sounds in isolation. If you are using it for other purposes, use page 21. Laminate for durability. I printed and laminated a copy of both, as I sometimes use the game for different goals on the same day.
Page 22: Blank cards in case you want to add your own movements to the game.
