Red Rover, Red Rover: Carry My Artic Over!

Who remembers playing the game "Red Rover, Red Rover" as a kid? Well, we all know how difficult it can be to find new and motivating ways to work on carryover skills for articulation when a student has mastered words, phrases, and sentences.

This is a game that needs to played with a group. Divide students up into teams and have them stand across the room from each other. Depending on their sound(s), each student may have a different "chant" in order to take their turn in the game. Begin by giving each student 10-20 Super Duper or other articulation cards with their sound. Then let the fun begin!

For example, if the student is working on the /s/ sound, he/she would start by saying, "Silly Susie, Silly Susie, send a _____ over." The student has to fill in the blank with a word from one of their cards. If said correctly, they drop the card on the floor. Students take turns in a round-about fashion. The goal is to be the first one to drop all their cards. You don't actually "send" anyone over, but it should still be fun!

To save you time (who has enough anyway?), I have put together a free download with the "chants" for every sound!  


  1. Great idea! The kids (and myself) are going to be up late tonight with the game so we're definitely going to be needing more movement-based therapy! Thanks!

  2. Love this idea!! I know carryover is something that I always need new ideas for. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Such a clever idea! I'm always looking for new ideas for carryover. I can't wait to use it! Thanks so much!
