This download is meant to be used with the classic game, Don’t Break the Ice”, which is an easy reasonably priced (under $10) game (sold separately in stores). No reading is required to play, but it can be used to practice articulation skills in speech therapy. Rules are simple enough for children as young as three. I also find my older students love to play this game as well. It includes one game set to target articulation of the /TH/sound while playing the game of Don’t Break the Ice. The square cards are to be used on top of the ice cubes. Students are asked to say the item/items pictured each time they take their turn while playing the game. You can increase the complexity of the task by asking student to use words pictured in a sentence as appropriate. A list of the target words used is included in order to help the speech language therapist identify the pictured items if necessary. A title sheet is also included and can be used as a label for the Ziploc bag that the cards can be stored in.
