1. A Treasure Hunt! Have your kids go on a treasure hunt (in the therapy room or around the school) for items that contain their sound. Write them down then practice them as they read their list to the group.
2. Play "I Spy" or the "Going on a Picnic/ to Grandma's House" game where students have to list items that have their sounds in them.
3. Magazine Hunt. Save those Sunday ads and have your kids make a collage of words they find with their target sound in them.
4. Listening game. Read a list of words where some contain a target and some don't. When they hear their sound they have to jump up or do something silly. Have the kids take turn reading the list of words.
5. Play Catch. Every time the ball/ beanbag is thrown, the person catching has to say a word that has the target sound in it.
6. Make a book. Create a book full of pictures, drawings, magazine cut outs that have the target sound in them. Create a sentence for each picture in the book.
7. Jenga! Tape target words onto Jenga pieces. As they take a piece, they have to say the word or make a sentence for the word.
8. Create a road out of artic cards. As the child drives the car over the cards, he/she says the word.
9. Hopscotch! Create a hopscotch game. Put an artic card in each box. As they hop in the box, they read the word.
10. Tic Tac Toe. Create a tic tac toe game board with artic words on it. As students make their X's or O's, they say the word in the box.
