Cariboo Speech Therapy Cards
Okay, you got me. I will admit it. I have jumped on the Cariboo craze for speech therapy. My students, ranging from 2-10 years old, LOVE Cariboo. I don't necessarily get it, but I am not complaining.
They are motivated, enjoying themselves, AND get A LOT of speech and language practice. For articulation alone, I can get more than 30 reps in just minutes.
- Cariboo cards for the following sounds: B, CH, D, F, G, J, K, L, M, N, P, R, S, SH, T, TH, V, Z
- Cards for the initial, medial, and final position
- Colorful, HIGH-FREQUENCY words used to help with generalization
- When able, pictures with "less ink" used to cut down on printing costs
- 58 pages in total
How to use Cariboo speech therapy cards:
You can use these cards any way you see fit....obviously. They are yours. However, I will share some of my favorite activities.
- Single-word practice: Child has to name a card before opening it
- Carrier phrase level practice: Child has to say "I want to open (picture)" before taking a turn
- Sentence level practice: Child has to use the word in a sentence before taking a turn (language and artic practice)
- Grammar: Child has to use a word (picture) in a sentence paired with a targeted grammar skill (i.e., pronouns/verb/conjunction)
- Vocabulary: Child has to define a word (picture) before taking a turn
- Categorization: Child has to name a category that the desired card belongs to before taking a turn or the child must find a picture that matches a certain category before opening it.
- Function: Child has to name the function of the desired card before taking a turn
- Location: Child has to name where he/she might find the object (picture) before taking a turn
- Similarities/differences: Child is able to open 2 boxes after he/she states how they are similar or different

Where To Buy Cariboo (the board game)
Okay...I have some bad news for you. This game isn't for sale anymore. I found my game at a garage sale. You can also check second-hand stores or reach out to friends with older children. Below, I provided a link to Amazon just so you can check out what the game looks like and to read more about it. Now, it is for sale on Amazon for $187....that is just plain absurd. I would take my time and explore used toy sites.
