Chocolate Fix by ThinkfunI always play  with toys or games when I work with children so they forget that they are doing “work!” It occurred to me the other day that “Chocolate Fix” by ThinkFun is a great game for practicing the “R” sound. I have blogged on this game before because kids and adults like it. Using a puzzle of spacial clues to solve, the player has to put 9 chocolates in order for the customer. Just the language used to role-play, asking the customer what he wants, and saying, “Your order is ready!” is full of the “R” sound. Each chocolate is dark, light or pink in the shapes of circle or round, triangle and square. Use the game as a carryover activity or suggest parents play it to reinforce the sound you are working on.
