Does this sound familiar?
Finding activities and games that keep your kids motivated to practice over and over again can be tricky when you have a heavy articulation and phonology caseload.
And nothing is more tiring and boring than saying, “Say your _____ sound ten more times?” for the entire session. After the third speech sound group, I needed something fresh to keep ME engaged with the activity.
Articulation and phonology flashcards can only go so far, so when you switch things up with a no-prep speech therapy game, you are WINNING. Am I right, or am I right?
How to Play the Race to 100 Articulation Game
The game is called Race to 100. You first use a die to see which person can get all one hundred squares covered. When the student rolls the dice, they get to color or check off the number of spaces on their articulation game mat.
Before they cross their squares, that’s the number of times they have to practice their speech word. You can use a twenty-sided die to ensure you get to 100 within the session.
What is great about this game is you can use it with ANY goal, so it is mixed group friendly.

What Speech Sound Games Do You Love to Use in Therapy?
Do you use some favorite low-prep games for articulation and phonology therapy often? Share in the comments, so other SLPs have more fun articulation games to use in treatment. One of my FAVE games to use towards the end of the school year is my articulation game for describing words. It’s a Name It type of game you can use with language describing goals.
If you have a lot of cluster reduction or s-blend goals, these games have been great for getting a high number of trials.
