This is a great way to get a TON of speech practice! There are mats for almost any theme or holiday throughout the year. It’s purposely left open ended, but listed below is how I use the activity.
To prep this, simply print and laminate the mats. Print as many as you need for your session. Use a pencil and a paperclip to make a “spinner.”
For articulation groups, print one Mat for each child. Have them take turns spinning the paperclip. Whatever number they land on, that’s how many times they practice their target (word, phrase, sentence, etc.) but that is also the number of objects (small erasers, bingo chips, etc.) they put in their cup. The one to fill up their cup first or the one with the most tokens at the end of the session, is the winner!
This game can be easily adapted to target other goals!
Included are the following mats:
