This is my fabulous game I like to call KABOOM! It is made from an empty oatmeal container, pretty duct tape, and popsicle sticks... doesn't get much fancier than that! I got the inspiration from one of our first grade teachers that plays a similar game with her sight words. So of course my "speechie brain" insisted that I create an articulation version for my students.
Here is how you play:
1. Write target words on popsicle sticks.
2. Make some *KABOOM* sticks (I made 4)
3. Put all the sticks in the container.
4. Have students take turns choosing 1 stick out of the container. If they say the word correctly, they keep their stick, if they say it incorrectly, they put it back in the container.
5. If a student picks a *KABOOM* stick, they put all their sticks back! (I also make they shout KABOOM :)
Disclaimer: This game is never ending... but you sure get a ton of arctic practice!!
This is how I store my sticks. Plastic baggies and labels are my organizational best friends!
