ARTICULATION- I use the Trivial Pursuit pie pieces and pies for many things in therapy. I use the questions from the game or the Disney Trivial Pursuit game to practice on articulation reading and carryover into sentences. The kids really like earning the pie pieces. I found that this works well with students who are gifted also because they like the challenge of the trivia. I have never been good at Trivial Pursuit so that enjoyment escapes my understanding! :-) I find that the Disney one if even tough for me! I think that is another thing that my students love ineptness of the trivial. You could also describe (r) words or (s) words to work on those specific articulation skills.

LANGUAGE- For my students who are more cognitively delayed I have used it when we are describing items. I have picture cards and give them hints or descriptors one at a time. Then the person who guesses the item correctly from the description gets the designated colored pie piece. 

GENERIC- You can use the pie pieces and pies for many different activities. I have used it over and over again and find that my students really don't get bored with earning them.
