I bet your therapy cabinet has at least 20 decks of therapy cards, when you add up articulation plus language cards. Those cards are great for the first 6 months of school. We play memory and go fish while we work on speech and language objectives. Now that we’re in the home stretch of the year – I decided to take it up a notch with a new way to use these cards decks. I got inspired by this post I found on pinterest. So using library pockets and therapy card decks, I came up with Bazinga.
I used library pocket cards. First I laminated them and used a knife to open the pocket back up. Then I added magnets to the back of the pockets.
When it was time to play I stuffed one or two cards in each pocket. Then I hid a small picture of silly little cartoon man in 3 pockets. Students took turns pulling out cards and searching for our cartoon. You could use anything to hide, but I wanted to reinforce pronouns. When they found it they yelled Bazinga! So motivating for my little ones! The beauty of this game is that I used it all day with students by switching out the card decks! Here are some Amazon Affiliate Links for Library Pockets: By the way – if you need a laugh please watch this video for Bazinga inspiration. And if you don’t watch The Big Bang Theory – you are missing out! What do you think? Could you use this activity? Can you make it better? Leave a comment and let me know!
