{Review} Rory's Story Cubes by Gamewright

Some of my favorite products to review are those that don't necessarily target a specific goal area, which is why I was excited when Rory's Story Cubes - Voyages arrived in the mail!

This activity, that is suggested for children ages 8 and up, includes 9 cubes that each include pictures of everyday verbs for a total of 54 pictures.  The pictures are purposely left to interpretation in order to allow the story to go in any way that you or your students might choose!  Simply roll the cubes, and let your imagination flow to create a fun and silly story.

This activity can be used to target the following skills:
* sequencing
* listening for details
* repeating sentences
* carryover of articulation sounds
* syntax skills

I'm sure that you can think of even more speech and language targets that this game can be used for!

I also found additional suggestions of how to play this game at Rory's Story Cubes website.

My favorite way to play the game is "Creating Superhero Stories".  All you (or your students) have to do is roll the cubes to determine your superhero's superpower, create a back story, and create a super-villain!

I would love to see story cubes (e.g. basic nouns, prepositions, etc) that would work well for students that are younger than 8 years old.  This is such a fun activity, that it would be nice to use with younger students as well.

The ways that you can use this product in therapy is truly limitless!  You can find Rory's Story Cubes for $7.99 HERE!
