What's In There??! BUNDLE
LOW PREP Activity for commonly targeted articulation and language objectives!
***This is also available in separate articulation and language packs (if you previously purchased one of those packs DO NOT buy this one!)
UPDATE: I added bonus conversation pages for carry over or social skills practice February 2017, re-download!
I also have a FREEBIE mat that targets defining and describing
These articulation and language mats were designed to accompany the popular game where student's pull objects out of a head. It is a commonly known fact that speech therapists use popular board games to make therapy fun for their students. I looked at all of my games and decided that I needed a way to make playing them more directly therapeutic! This is how all of my game companions were born! I hope you enjoy this latest edition! Don’t forget to check out my other game companions! (games not included with purchase, you must own the game).
Companion mats for common language targets:
• Categories (Name the Category & Name Items in a Category)
• Which One Doesn’t Belong
• Multiple Meaning Words
• ING Verbs
• Regular/Irregular Past Tense Verbs
• Regular/Irregular Plurals
• Fix the Sentence (subject/verb agreement & sentence absurdities)
• Blank Mat (write in your own targets!)
Companion mats for common articulation targets:

• Also includes lblends, rblends, & sblends (mixed sblends and separate mats for st, sp, sm, sn, sk, & sl)
• Mats for pre-vocalic r, er, ar, or, air, ear, ire, rl, mixed vocalic r
• Blank mat
Assembly: Print and go! You can laminate the boards or place them in page protectors for durability.
To use: Set up and play the game as directed (objects in the head and cards in a stack). Place a What’s In There mat in front of each student (according to their language target).
• The student will draw a card and place it on the mat in the space labeled “place card here”. They will then roll the die and answer the question/prompt or produce the articulation target by the number they rolled (under the card).
• The student will then reach inside the head and try to feel for the object on the card. If they find the correct object, they get to keep the card on their mat and keep the object by them (the goal of the game it to find as many items as you can). If they do not find the object on the card, they will put the card at the bottom of the stack and put the object back in the head.
• Suggestion: When I play this with my students, I make them do extra trials if they do not find the right item. I have them roll the die again and practice an additional target for extra practice!
• As they find the objects, continue putting the cards on the mat. After the four card spots are full, they will stack the next card on top of a card already on the mat.
