DIY of the week! Pocket Games!

As I was emptying some leftover materials from the SLP before me, I ran across her handwritten "Pocket Games" on index cards.  I thought they were a nice idea for extra work in language and speech so I revamped them by typing them up, updating them (none of my students will know what a phonogram is!), and pasting them onto index cards.  I use Index card file boxes to keep them organized:
 Here's an example of the final product:

So... this is your DIY of the week.  Luckily for you, they're all typed up and ready to go on the following links!

3x5 PDF Files (This will save some glue and time!  Thanks for the suggestion!)
There are two links provided.  One, of course, is the free document.  However, as taking time to create and post materials adds up, I've begun uploading some documents to "Teachers Pay Teachers".  If you are willing to "purchase" that version instead of the freebie, I would greatly appreciate it.  If not, the freebie is available to you as well.  Either way, thanks for coming to visit Sublime Speech! 

Let me know how you use them in your sessions and any edits that may need to be made.  I posted them in Word Documents so that you could change them if needed as well as the addition of PDFs this week. 

ENJOY and have a marvelous weekend!

  1. Thank you for sharing! I am going to convert them to labels so I can just stick them to the index cards instead of cutting and pasting (I am a little lazy like that) or change the table size so I can print them onto card stock and cut them out 3X5 size.

  2. Those look great! And I like the idea of printing them on labels. That sounds great. Or I may print them on card stock and then just cut them apart. I noticed that the synonyms one did not have evenly spaced lines. I can't wait to use them!! :)

    1. It may be that the font I used is not on your computer. If you'd like, I will happily adjust them for you and save as PDFs. Just let me know :)

  3. Just found your blog via pinterest! I'm a fellow SLP and blogger also, I am SO happy to have you joining the blogging world! I host a link party every week called Thrifty Thursday, and your posts about DIY activities would be fantastic for it! It is a place for SLPs, Educators, and Parents to come together and share free or nearly free children's learning activities. You might also find some activities there that can be adapted for therapy (which is why I started the linky party!). Anyway, WELCOME to blogging, I am loving what I see so far!

  4. Hi Danielle,

    I have been having a great time exploring your blog! Quick thing about these card sets- I don't know if anyone else had this problem, but a couple turned up as "Not Found Error 404" when I clicked on them.

    Thanks for the posts!

  8. HI! I also found this on pinterest. I actually am looking for a lesson/activity to teach analogies. How does a pocket game work? I'm new here.

    1. I typically just shuffle the cards and draw one for each kid. They get the points on the card if they get it correct with the amount of cueing I've decided they need.

  9. Thank you a lot for sharing! I was looking for analogies to translate into Spanish for my students, but I also found some great vocabulary and homophones I can use myself to improve my English. Thank you! :)
