Articulation Card Jenga

Many of the students on my caseload are working on various speech sounds. I am not one for using articulation cards to drill sounds over and over. This becomes boring for myself and also for my students. I had seen a lot of posts on Pinterest about using Jenga blocks and writing words on them for articulation sounds and conversation starters. I want to be able to reuse my Jenga blocks over and over again, so I came up with a different idea. We placed articulation cards in between the Jenga block levels.

Articulation Jenga

My students loved it! They enjoyed placing the cards between the blocks and seeing which cards fell when blocks were knocked over!

Articulation Jenga blocks fell over

Instead of becoming upset when Jenga bricks fell, my students were delighted to see how many cards they could collect. So, in a way, everyone felt like a winner whether they were not the person who knocked the tower over or were the person who collected the most cards. Depending on what each students' goals were for articulation sounds, they could make up a sentence for each word, or state the word on the card. In addition, when I had students who were working different speech sounds, I placed speech cards in the Jenga tower that contained both of their sounds.

I am always looking for more ways to make working on speech sounds fun! Keep stopping by to see more ways that we have fun with articulation in my classroom!

what a fantastic, and easy idea. my kids are always coming in and saying 'are we going to play a game?' I think they come to speech to learn how to play games, so lately I have been just incorporating literacy and spelling words, but this, this I can use! Thank you!

CLEVER!

great idea! as for not wanting to ruin your blocks by writing on them, i wrote my conversation starters on small slips of paper and taped them. :)

Totally in love with this idea!

Thanks everyone! I wanted to make the game so that I could use it with any type of card deck and so that I did not have to write words on the actual Jenga blocks. I'm so glad it has gotten such a great response! I can't wait to post more ideas this weekend!
