This download is made with the non-reader in mind. It includes four sets of 60 picture cards to target articulation of the /R/, /CH/, /SH/ and /S/ BLENDS. A list of the target words used is included in order to help the speech language therapist identify the pictured items if necessary. This game can be used during individual therapy sessions or in small groups of 2 to 5 students. A title sheet is also included and can be used as a label for the Ziploc bag that the cards may be stored in. Blank Parking Lot and Blank Picture Cards also included so that therapist can use written words for readers.

Playing The Game:
Spread out all picture cards facedown on the table in rows. The object of the game is for each player to locate all ten pictures that match the ten pictures in his/her “parking lot”. Randomly choose a player to go first. Taking turns, each player turns over one picture card from the table, naming it and using the word in a sentence if appropriate. If the picture matches one on his/her “PARKING LOT” board, the player can park a vehicle in their parking lot by picking a vehicle picture card and place it on top of that picture, and play passes to the left. If it does not match one on the “PARKING LOT” board, the picture is turned face down again and play passes to the left. Play continues until one player covers all the pictures on his/her “PARKING LOT” board with vehicle picture cards.
The winner is the player who covers all the pictures on his/her “PARKING LOT” board first or if time runs out the player with the most pictures covered is the winner.
