"Find It" Game for Speech Therapy



Have you heard the newest!? It's the "Find It" game where kids sort through little beads in a bottle and try to come across objects on a list. Students love it and thanks to my friend, Jacquie, I decided to make one for myself.

Here's what you do:
1. Grab an empty bottle and fill it with small beads.
2. Hide objects in the bottle. My bottle was filled with /r/ words to make /r/ articulation a little more exciting. Things like "rocket, red dog, ribbon, heart, car, truck, etc...." were hidden. You could do "things that rhyme with....things found in the animal category.....things that start with....." The possibilities are endless!
3. Take the lid and hot glue AND duck tape that sucker on there. You have no idea how many of my students thought the object of the game was try to spill the beads on the floor.

 
Kids shake and twist the bottle until they find the objects. We had an 8 second rule. Once the 8 seconds were up, another student took a turn.
Have you thought of anything YOU could use this game for...?

    1. I actually used buttons. If you go to a craft store, look for a bag of bulk buttons. They have tons of difference little objects and shapes. It's easy and doesn't cost much either!

  3. Thanks to telling how you found objects to put in it. I was wondering the same thing. I am lucky enough to have the original version as well as the Wizard of Oz one (at home) which I bring to school to use.

    SO MUCH FUN!!!
