Cash Cab Expressive Language!

Yay for new materials! I love Cash Cab so much. A while ago I used to work for a daycare and we took field trips every day! That meant bussing around 14 kids in my big, white van each afternoon.

A month into the summer, I began playing Cash Cab with my kids in the van. I’d prepare a huge list of questions and pretend I was Ben, the driver, from Cash Cab. They all got really into it and it decreased the backseat naughtiness substantially!

So now I’ve created an expressive language packet with a Cash Cab theme! You can find it here.

Slide1

This is a fun packet targeting a variety of expressive language skills! It is a whopping 95 pages long and contains over 400 game cards targeting:

Naming Items Within A Category (Red Light Challenge! Cards)
Naming Function
Describing A Word
Word Finding
Comparing and Contrasting Two Words
Creating WH Questions
Describing A Process (How Questions)
Multiple Meaning Words

The packet also includes:
One Group Game Board
Individual Game Strips
Cash Cab Money Earning Score Sheets
Foil Cards
Shout Out! Cards
Describing Things Visual
Game instructions for three ways to play
1 Set of Blank Cards

This game allows for a variety of ways to play! You can play with all of the skill decks, or only use some!

Say It! Trains for Apraxia

I am so excited for this packet! It took a LONG time but in the end, I love how it turned out and I cannot wait to use it.

Say It! Trains Apraxia

This 41-page packet is intended for use with students with apraxia. But, it can also be used for those with severe articulation deficits or those with phonological awareness goals.

The consonant sounds /b, m, p, t, d, h, n, w, s, k, g, y, z/ are included. In addition, a wide variety of vowels are targeted as well!

For each of the sounds above (including vowels) there is a card included. These cards can be used to help your students isolate each sound in a word and cue themselves. For example, on the ‘B’ card there is a picture of a ball. On the bottom of the card it says, “Buh, buh, buh like the sound of a ball bouncing” to help you think of great ways for your students to remember the sound! (see the example page below)

Slide06

Two games/activities are included. The first has the student build a word using sounds. See a page of words in the picture below. Words were chosen to reflect a wide variety of vowels sound with all of the consonants listed above! There are 207 word cards included!

Slide18

You can also build the word yourself and have the student focus on the articulation of each sound.

Slide03

The second game targets nonsense CV syllables.

Slide32

Reinforcement cards and mats are included as well.

Visual cue cards are included. These help students that benefit from placement cues. One is left blank so you can customize it with your own cues if desired!

Fluency Bingo!

My newest material is a Fluency Bingo Game. It targets fluency in words, phrases, sentences, conversation, and when describing a process. There are 32 cards for each level of difficulty.

Slide1

Also included are 6 different bingo boards and 4 different die that prompt the child to speak using different emotions, in different voices, at different volumes, and using different rates.

To play:

The child rolls one of the included die. They pick a card. They read the card aloud using the voice described on the die. Then, they announce to the group the picture on the bottom of the card. Everybody in the group can mark that picture off of their Bingo boards (if they have it). The first person to get five in a row shouts Bingo! and they win! 🙂

The file is 38 pages long and sample pictures are below:
