Here’s another quick pencil and paper game that will get you a high number of trials during articulation therapy while keeping the enthusiasm of your students high. And because it’s so easy to play, it’s a perfect activity to send home too.
Triangle board with target words
Pen or pencil
It’s literally a triangle made up of dotted tiers. Between the dots you write your target word. The Artic Attack workbooks include pre-made sheets for s, z, and r in all positions, including blends.
Alternate taking turns by joining two dots, saying the word that is crossed out. When a player completes a triangle, they put their initials in it and take one more turn.
Tri it, you’ll like it!
Please take a moment to read my article, “Articulation Games from a Drill Sergeant,” in the current edition of Advance for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. I think a high number of trials/session is critical to moving kids through therapy and am always on the lookout for fun ways to make this happen.
