Congrats to Tammy H.! She won our iSpot Pro app giveaway!
Let’s face it. Sometimes there is just not enough time to prep for therapy and come up with a cutesy game to entertain our kids. Or sometimes there is no more ink (this is the equivalent to gold in my school district), and teachers are hoarding paper because the supply is low and when it’s gone, it’s gone folks.
Well if you have a pocket chart, then I have an artic idea for you!
|Ok... no judging my board. It is really just a white board that someone had put tons of tape on and it was hard to write on. One day I just couldn't take it anymore and I covered it up. Still a work in progress. Just focus on the mini pocket chart!|
Place your articulation cards in your pocket chart. Explain to the students that you will say a riddle. The first person to guess what the riddle is while using their good speech sounds gets the card. Whoever has the most cards in the end wins. Don’t know about you but as long as my students are working to ‘win’ something they work so much harder! The riddles can be simple such as ‘something we eat at a birthday party”. The answer is cake.
This activity is especially great for spontaneous speech. I could not think up a catchy name for this, so if you have an idea let me know!
What easy, no prep and no ink games do you like to play with your kids?
