These fun Digital Shopping Board Games for Speech Therapy are an engaging and easy way to target speech goals. They open in PowerPoint on most devices, making them easy to access and use. this is a cooperative game. The aim of the game is to work together to cross the items off the shopping list. There is no winner or loser. This makes it a great game for all students, including those with a competitive streak that can interfere with therapy. This also means it can be a 1 player game or a multiplayer game.

DIGITAL SHOPPING BOARD GAMES FOR SPEECH THERAPY
HOW IT WORKS:
The player/s take turns spinning the number spinner to move the counter around the board. The board is a continuous board, there is no start or finish. When a student lands on a target picture, they say the word (I often have them spin the number spinner again to decide how often they will say the word). When they land on a spinner picture they get to ‘go shopping’ and spin the food spinner. They can then cross the food they spin off the shopping list.
Teletherapists & Computer Users
If you are using these on a computer, you will need to open them in the desktop version of PowerPoint (2016 or newer). We can NOT guarantee these will work in the browser-based web app version of PowerPoint on a computer.
To play these games in teletherapy you need to open the game on your computer and then share your screen within your teletherapy platform. Then IF your platform allows it you can share mouse controls so the student can interact with the game. This step is NOT essential, you can still use these in a fun engaging way without giving mouse controls, you can just interact with the game for the student. In this situation I have the student tell me what to choose and when to do certain things in the game. It helps them maintain a sense of control and participation.
