Speech-A-Gories: A Card Game for Speech and Language Therapy

Do you love the board game Scattergories? Do you love the card game spoons? This game is for you then! It is a combination of both of them! No more worrying about a timer either!

Put all category cards in a pile face down. Put all letter cards in a pile face down. Put all “I know one!” cards in the middle. There should be one less “I know one!” card in the middle than there are players.

The SLP or teacher will draw a letter card and a category card. They announce the letter for the round and then read the category card.

Students will think of an item in that category that begins with the designated letter. When they think of one, they reach for an “I know one!” card. One person will not get a card from the middle.

After all of the “I know one!” cards have been picked up, go around the circle to everyone who picked one up and ask for their answers. If they answer correctly, they receive a point.

Place all of the “I know one!” cards back in the middle and continue with another round. Whoever has the most points at the end wins!

Uses: You can use this to target language goals, specifically categories. You can also have them use the word they say in a sentence. For articulation, choose only the letters that will elicit the target sound!

You can find this activity in my TpT store!  As always, feedback is appreciated!
