Turtle Talk®

This friendly turtle wants to help students achieve smooth and easy speech.

In this innovative fluency and language game, players pick a card, answer a skill level question, roll the die, "skate" around the board, and collect Turtle Tokens as they go! Turtle Talk is ideal for non-readers also.

Turtle Talk has 240 fluency/language cards that are divided into six categories: Animals, Around the Home, Food, Holidays and Seasons, Occupations, and Things you Wear. Each card has 6 questions on one side and a colorful illustration on the other side. Use the illustration to help elicit desired responses. Turtle Talk is also flexible enough to target a student's individual skill level. For fluency, the game targets 6 skill levels that increase in difficulty.

  5. Great Game!
    My students from Kindergarten to 4th grade really enjoy playing this game. I love that the materials target a range of different skills beyond fluency. In one group we can target fluency, receptive language, and expressive language. And the kids have fun!

    My student really enjoyed playing this game. The board, turtle, and tokens were a nice change from our typical cards and magnetic chips. I wish the board were a little more interactive with more evenly spaced sections to land on (spaces) and more than just "take 1" or "take 2" tokens. But we just created some rules on our own. The cards are useful, or you can easily use a different deck.

  10. Fun learning game
    My 4-year-old loves this game! Sometimes it's fun to just use the cards and ask the questions, but he likes the purpose of moving around the board and collecting tokens from the turtle. The questions are really thought provoking and some too hard for him, but this is definitely a game that can grow with him and we adjust for his age and abilities.

  11. They love the turtles!
    My two girls are 3 & 6 and both love playing this game with the turtles! I've found them sitting around with the game out a few times trying to play on their own (even though they are not yet able to read the cards by themselves). It's great that the cards have so many options each so you can select what skill level best fits each kid. Great game!

    We really enjoy the Turtle Talk game. While there are multiple skill levels questions on each card, we enjoy doing all of them (when possible) because it's so much fun. The kids really like getting turtle tokens after completing their turn. We have the child whose turn it is hold the turtle and they LOVE that! Lots of fun. Great for practicing fluency and language! I received a sample in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I work with a number of children who suffer from stuttering and disfluency. After introducing them to this game there speech has dramatically improved. They associate the turtle and how it moves to how they should speak. Slow and steady. It truly is a wonderful game and my kids and I love it immensely.

    I have been using this game with my ASD students for about 3 years. All my students love it! I teach middle school kids now and it is great that each card can be adapted to that child's level. Previously used it with k-5 students with great success. This game is always a favorite!

    Turtle Talk is a fun game for my 3-year-olds, as well as my upper elementary students. I love how there is no "finish" and you can stop whenever you want and the winner is the one with the most tokens. Works well even for shorter therapy sessions. All the kids love the turtle!

  25. Lets the children know what they are expected to do.
    Turtle talk not only is an excellent tool to work on fluency, but also language ...vocabulary, classification, comaprrisons and contrasts, reasoning, and formulation skills. It is a mutifaceted tool.

  26. Great for Categories
    Turtle Talk is pretty awesome because of the varied things you can use it with - however I have found that the difficulty level of some of the cards are pretty high for the younger kiddos. When I attempted to use this game with older kiddos, they were turned off by the youthful appearance of the game - so I utilized the cards instead of the board. Good for categories and storytelling.

    I enjoy your products and love your language games/activities. I would like more interactive products and language stimulating toys for early childhood. I work with many pre-kindergarten students and would benefit from a larger variety of products for children at this age. I love the fluency enhancing tools and the Magne Talk activities.

    As a mother of a fourth-grader who has Asperger's, I particularly enjoy all of the games and social skills activities that you have available. All of your products appear to be so fun and enjoyable for the kids, that they probably don't even realize that they are picking up some very important life skills while they are playing them. That's important, because, after all, why shouldn't social skills games be just as entertaining as any childrens game? You guys obviously 'get' kids ---thanks!!!

    I have found Turtle Talk to be beneficial for eliciting language skills. It is primarily designed to address fluency skills. Since language and fluency are often interrelated, the stimulus items, pictures, and hierarchy of language tasks are very helpful. I even use the product to elicit speech when addressing sound system disorders.

  38. Turtle Talk Review
    Just rec'd this product and can't believe how much information it covers. If you are looking for a game that covers many different areas of language this is it! Generalizing skills are the most difficult part in teaching any child with difficulties. I highly recommend this game, it covers vocabulary, describing, sequencing, critical thinking, listening, reading and story telling. I was not disappointed with this product.
