2018: Cariboo


I love the game of Cariboo. Unfortunately, it's not a game that is made anymore so I had to snag my copy from eBay. Luckily, I didn't have to pay too much out of pocket for my version.  I love to use it for a variety of activities, so here are a few ways I used it this year:


I always start the year off by taking baselines on what my students can/cannot do with regard to their goals with me.  That can get a little tedious or boring so I usually let them have a turn at Cariboo in-between turns to keep things interesting.


I have a ton of seasonal-themed cards that can go on top of my Cariboo game. Then, we can use them for describing or other activities and I usually pull out my EET aka "color caterpillar"  visuals out to describe the pictures on top.


Sometimes we do worksheets or another type of activity for 90% of our session and the last few minutes I let students play a quick round of Cariboo so they feel like they got to "play a game" if even for a couple of minutes--it is an easy game with little to no set up involved.

How do you use your Cariboo if you use it in speech-language therapy?
