Simple, but FUN!

One of the most popular activities in my speech room always surprises me.  It is a simple "feed the animals" game produced by Super Duper Inc.  The game is called Animal Buddies- Open Ended Motivational Box with Tokens.



There are days when I ask my older students which game they would like to play while doing their articulation words.  I am always shocked when my fourth or fifth grade students ask for this game!  They love it!  All I do is make them say as many words as I choose (or sentences) and then they get to pick a couple of food items to feed to the animals.

I recently came across a freebie by Lauren LaCour of busybeespeech.blogspot.com  called Hungry Hippos Artic.  This is a fun game that you can use as an articulation game or an open-ended motivational game.  I took all four hippos that are included in the packet and glued them onto an old tissue box.  Then, I bribed the art teacher for an exacto knife and cut out all of the mouths on the hippos.  I laminated the blank fruits that are included in the packet and placed them on a sheet of foam that had a sticky side.  I did this so that my students could have an easier time picking the small pieces up off the table. 


This simple activity has turned into a new favorite of many students!  They love the hungry hippos!
