Articulation Games

These games will help to improve the children’s fluency with language. They also help to improve clarity of speech sounds and assist with vocal projection.

Game: Voice coach
Difficulty rating: **
Minimum number of participants: 2
Resources needed: Clear space, index cards with emotions written on them
Instructions: Choose a simple sentence, e.g. “I want a can of Coke.” Write one of the feelings listed below on each index card. Have one child choose a card and then say the simple sentence in the emotion written on it. The rest of the class has to guess which emotion the child is trying to portray.
Examples of emotions which can be used:
Calm
Happy
Sad
Stubborn
Surprised
Excited
Angry
Worried
Brave
Lonely
At the end, have the children repeat the sentence together, as they all use the emotion they have chosen from the card.
