How to Play Connect Four Articulation Games

Articulation GameConnect your articulation therapy sessions to your students favorite board games. Many of my students enjoy playing connect four which is a fun game that allows for many exposures to their articulation sounds. 

The objective of Connect Four is to place four of one's own chips of the same color next to each other either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally before your opponent.

The articulation connect four game includes four different chips colors in green, purple, blue, and red.

Each sound includes one board with a combination of initial, medial, and final words.
/p, b, t, d, f, v, g, k, m, n, r, r-blends, l, l-blends, s, s-blends, z, sh, ch, th/

Here is an example of the /t/ sound including words in the initial, medial, and final positions all on one board!

If your student is at the sentence level have them put the words into a complete sentence. 

In addition, a data collection sheet is included to help with data collection. Simply circle the + if the student correctly produced that sound or - if the student incorrectly produced that sound. Then add up the correct productions and divide them by the incorrect productions and write the percentage of accuracy.

For example Jennifer used the purple chips and correctly produced /d/ sound in the words "Bread, Bed, Desk, & Drummer" and incorrectly produced the /d/ sound in the words "Radish & President". Jennifer scored 4/6 giving her 67% accuracy.
