“Are we going to play a game today?” Words that many (if not most) pediatric SLPs hear at least one time a week. Games are a fun, low prep way to keep students engaged while working on their target sounds. For many school based SLPs, this is also a great way to work on several sounds in groups. I’ve compiled a list of CH articulation games to share with you! Keep in mind, you can make many of these games work for other sounds, too!

Here are some fun ch speech therapy games that will help you get high trials…

 

  • Hi Ho! Cherry-O is a classic game in which children spin the wheel, collect cherries for their bucket OR put cherries back. Students can practice the word “cherry” and practice the word in phrases and sentences, too. For example, they might practice “Two cherries” or “I have two cherries.” Students can also give you or other students directions like “Put two cherries back” or “Get three cherries.” There is a speech therapy cheat sheet for this game in the toy companion resource in my TPT store

 

  • In What Do You Meme? Toe Cheese Chase, students will flip cards and move across the board to outrun Toe Cheese. Students can practice “Get away Toe Cheese!” and “You can’t catch me!” Practice words such as cheese, chase, catch, touch and reach. A fun, simple game that will keep students engaged while practicing their ch sound!

 

    More CH Speech Therapy Games For Younger Students

    • Play Reel Big Catch with your students! They’ll catch fish and check how long the fish are. Which student caught the biggest fish? Students can practice “I want to catch a fish!” or “Let’s check how big the fish is.”

     

    • Chase is on the case for ch practice! Save Chase in Paw Patrol Don’t Drop Chase Game, which has similar rules to “Don’t Break the Ice.” Students can practice Chase in different sentences like “Don’t drop Chase” or “Chase is safe!” They can also “chip” away at all the ice. Ice is chilly so we don’t want Chase to fall! Which ice will they choose to hammer?

     

    • Chugga Choo is puzzle game in which children flip cards and match the trains based on color. Before flipping over a piece, your student(s) can practice “chugga chugga choo choo!” then practice “match the trains!” when they find the matching color. A simple but fun way to practice the ch sound while also working on other developmental skills.

    • Chompin’ Charlie is an exciting game in which students roll the dice and feed Charlie (the chipmunk) a matching colored acorn. Watch out for when he pops because the acorns will scatter from Charlie’s tree because you’ll want to reach and catch them to add to your secret stash! Students can practice these bolded words to practice their ch sounds in words and sentences.

     

    • Another classic, Go Fish, is also a fun way for children of all ages to practice the ch sound. Change the name of the game to “Get a catch.” Instead of saying “Go fish,” students can say “Choose a card.” You can also practice “I found a match!” Use these free Go Fish visual rules to help your students when playing!

     

    • Catch the Fox is a silly game in which children put chickens in the fox’s pockets and press down on his head. Suddenly, the fox will lose his panda which sends the chickens flying. The kids have to catch the chickens and return them to their chicken coops. When students roll the die, they can practice saying “chicken,” expand to phrases “two chickens,” or make a sentence with “I need to get two chickens.” Between turns, students can remind each other to “Watch out!” After they catch chickens, they can share how many chickens are in their coops.
    • Play What’s in Ned’s Head? And use items that have CH in them! For example, find figurines or mini objects  for cheese, cherries, wrench, ostrich, sandwich, statue, peaches, ketchup, cheeseburger, chipmunk, chair, bench, nachos. Come up with describing words like moldy cheese, rotten cherries, sour peaches, etc or have sound-loaded phrases such as I touched ____ I reached for the ____, I chose the ______.
