Stomp, Skip, Spin!

I just loved KPM Doodles Basic Monster set so much, that I had to find something else to make with them.  The result:  Stomp, Skip, Spin! It's an action game for working on articulation skills.  Just print out the game, cut out the cards and you're ready to go.

These are the Action Cards; Cut them apart and lay them face down on the Game Board.
These are the SP set of the Word Cards.  There is also an ST and a SK set included in the download, as well as a page of blank ones for you to customize.  Print, cut them apart and lay them face down on the Game Board.

This is the Game Board; Put the Action Cards in a pile, face down of the Action Card Draw Pile space, and the Word Cards in a pile on the other draw pile space.
To play, the child draws one card from the Action Card pile and lays it on the Action Card Discard pile, and one card from the Word Card pile and lays it on the Word Card Discard pile.  The child performs the action on the Action Card while saying the word on the Word Card.  Here's the great part:  You get to choose how you want him/her to say it (ex. word, phrase or sentence) and how many times he/she has to repeat it.  So it might look like this:  "Say the word "space" 5 times while you skip around the room."  Easy!  And fun!  I've only played it once so far, but we had a blast and the child asked if we could do it again next week.  That qualifies as a success in my book!  I'm already thinking of other  ways to use this game.  Wouldn't it be fun to make an obstacle course and have the kids draw a new set of cards before each obstacle, skipping or spinning or tip-toeing to the next one?  Hmmm.  I'll let you know if it works.  But in the mean time, if you want to play this game, too, you can find it in my TpT Store. It includes target cards for F, S, SH and CH in the initial and final positions.

Have fun!
