I have a few go to games that my students always request.
1. The first one is Go For The Dough from Super Duper, Inc.
My students constantly ask for this game. Basically, you just use game pieces to go around the game board and try to deliver pizza to granny. For each turn, you have to answer a question to earn a dollar. The dollar goes in a pot in the middle. If you land on granny, then you get to keep all of the money in the pot.
I use the game the way it is intended with the money, but I also use it just as a reinforcing game. To use it with the money, you follow the directions on the money. There are six different areas to target: Categories, Opposites, Definitions, Rhyming Words, Multiple Meanings, and Synonyms. For the categories area, I usually make my students name as many items in the category as they rolled on the dice. I also use it as a reinforce with the dice and just put random money in the pot. With articulation, for example, I have the students roll the dice, say as many words or sentences as the dice indicate, and then put a dollar in the pot for them.
My students LOVE trying to win all of the money!
2. Another of my most requested games is Apples to Apples Junior. I will usually let students pull this out for "special occasions".
3. The third most requested game in my speech room is Cariboo Island. Unfortunately, it is out of production now, but you could get lucky and have a great find at a second hand shop.
HERE. I know I have talked about this before, but I really do love this game!
