This game is aligned to the common core standards. It targets frequently occurring Tier 2 vocabulary words from 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade curriculum, understanding of synonyms, and articulation practice at the word, phrase, or sentence level. This game can be used for speech therapy, small group instruction, and literacy
centers. It is perfect for mixed groups (articulation and language). Sounds targeted include: /sh/, /ch/, prevocalic /r/, /r/ blends, vocalic /r/, /l/, /l/ blends, /s/, /s/ blends, and /z/.
This unit includes five checkerboards: one for /sh/ and /ch/, one for mixed /r/ practice, one for /s/ and /z/, one for /l/ and /l/ blends, and one for writing in your own target words.
