You know I love board games....

I'm sure you've figured out by now that I LOVE board games.
(and all games in general!) 
A good board game is motivation to work on any skill.  
Kids love competition! Even more, they love to win!! 
(even though in my room the only thing ya get for winning is "the good feeling of winning"
:)

I broke these out to get me and my babies through the month of May!




























We do artic drill. We answer questions. We drill sight words.  We rhyme words.  Some of the little guys are doing auditory memory drill.  
We do it all, and when they've done their tasks well, they get a turn at a board game. 
That's how we roll.  (ha! the dice- literally) 

We did the Fiesta game board when we learned about Cinco De Mayo last week and this little mermaid game board is what's on tap for my little group of giggly girls tomorrow...




When I want the game to last long {so that they get plenty of skills practice}, 
I use a spinner or dice that only goes up to 3.                    



When it's an early dismissal schedule like today, I use a spinner that goes up to 5 or 6 (or a standard dice) to make the game go by quickly.    



          I'm sneaky like that ;)


If you need something to cram as much speech practice as possible 
into the glorious month of May, you can find my 
'"May and Beyond" open ended game boards 


Oh! By the way, have you checked you the big "Speech-er Appreciation" Sale at Tpt?!?  
Everything in my TpT store is 20% off today and tomorrow 
Then just use the CODE TAD13 for an extra 8% off.  
The same goes for many more SLP stores~
Oh my, I love a good deal!

Happy May, y'all!
