Winner! Winner! Turkey Dinner! “Talk’n Turkey Thanksgiving Language Development Game” is an easy-play game for language therapy with a fun wishbone theme; perfect for November. Players answer questions and collect turkey feather cards until they have enough to “snap a wishbone.” Then the fun really begins! Two players sit across from each other and pull to break a paper wishbone. Paper wishbones are a “snap” (pardon the pun) to make with minimal cutting, two folds, and a piece of tape. Simple 4-step illustrated directions serve double-duty as a “following sequential directions” activity, if you choose to have students create the wishbones before the game begins.
Questions target a wide range of goals making Talk’n Turkey ideal for language groups or classrooms. There are 10 themed questions in 15 categories:
• Inference / cognitive flexibility
• Multiple meaning / humor
• Parts of a whole
150 QUESTIONS in all!
“Talk’n Turkey Interactive Quiz Game” is twenty-five Talk’n Turkey questions presented in a Quiz-show format, ready to play on a PC or Smartboard®. Players answer questions and enjoy virtual wishbone snapping. It’s a great no-print, no-prep option for gobbling good therapy!

“Turkey Lurkey, Who Got the Turkey? Individual & Group Games for Language Concepts” includes instructions and printable materials to play three games that teach language concepts in a motivating social context. Designed for children with autism in mind, these games address a variety of goals, appropriate for a wide range of students, and can be played in groups of up to 12 participants. Thanksgiving is a great topic for therapy sessions because multiple opportunities for generalization outside of therapy sessions are almost certain to occur naturally in the classroom, in the community, and at home. As always, Sparkle Speech products are mindful of your ink, paper, and time so the three games in this product can be played using a combination of the same printed materials.
1. “Turkey Lurkey, Who Got the Turkey?” is an updated spin on the classroom classic, “Button Button, Who Got the Button?” with a Thanksgiving theme, and is adapted for use in speech therapy groups to accommodate children with motor-skill challenges. Students ask and answer “who” and “yes/no” questions, use social thinking to read facial expressions, and use logic and social language as they play.
2. “Turkey Lurkey, Where’s the Turkey?” is a game that is designed to be played in individual or group therapy sessions. Students ask and/answer “where” questions, practice prepositions, use expanded sentences purposefully, and practice social language conventions.
3. “Turkey Lurkey, What’s in the Dark?” is a game for use in individual or group therapy sessions that teaches language comprehension. Students use a flashlight to demonstrate understanding of locatives, adjectives, and nouns in context, and answer “where,” “what,” and “yes/no” questions meaningfully.
“Gobble! Gobble! WH Question Bingo Game!” is a game designed to practice answering “who,” “what,” “why,” “how” and “inference” questions and is intended for use in individual and group speech therapy sessions with school-aged children. The same 6 student Bingo cards are used for every question type, which allows for differentiated instruction. This means each student in your group can answer a question type tailored to his or her needs while playing as part of a group, and you won’t go broke buying paper and ink to do it. Bingo is a classic game for a reason; kids love it! Gobble Gobble Bingo is a terrific way to connect therapy to real life across environments as Thanksgiving is a common topic of elementary school lessons, and conversation at home.
