Description: These 17 summer themed games, 2 Cinco De Mayo games, and the July 4th (Independence Day)/Canada Day themed open ended games reinforce accuracy/effort while targeting ANY skill. I use them for speech and language therapy. They are a dream come true for mixed groups! Have students perform a target skill/task to your liking X times to earn a turn at the game. These games are made for groups of 2-4. If you see a child individually, you can be the play partner! TO PLAY: Explain to students that they will get a turn to drag & drop an item after performing X skill. The object of the game is to collect the most items that are hidden randomly under the images. On their turn, players should choose 1 item and drag it to the themed image in the middle of the screen. If that reveals a hidden item, they can drag it to their square. They may also uncover secret messages that shake up the game! Once all hidden items are revealed, the player(s) with the most items WINS! Always CLICK HOME to return to the menu in order to pick a new game. HERE IS A TIP: If you are using these for language therapy and want to build expressive language, share the screen but DO NOT share the mouse. This will force your students to articulate and describe which item they want you to drag for them! Questions? Email me at
