Jenna over at Speech Room News asked all of us bloggers what our favorite games were to use in speech. She’s got a fun new Love It & List It linky party going on, so today I’m linking up with her blog and sharing my favorites!

1. Guess Who Extra
If you are an SLP, you probably have Guess Who! My kiddos love the “extra” version, since it comes with 6 different cards and themes to choose from: animals, appliances, silly faces, etc. This game is great for working on articulation carry-over, asking/answering questions, describing, turn-taking, and more.
I probably drag out trouble every few weeks for my articulation groups. It’s a perfect reinforcer, and I can get several trials out of each turn. I have them say a word the amount of times the number says on the die. It can also be fun to use with card decks between rounds.
3. Don’t Break the Ice
4. Boggle Jr.
I like Boggle to work on reading and phonological skills. I don’t always play as directed. The letter cubes are great for manipulating sounds and working on different awareness tasks.
Zingo is a cute game for building vocabulary, matching, describing, following directions, and more. I change it and play it lots of different ways. Kids love it!
