Make A Silly Story!

This packet targets narratives, sequencing, story elements, and categories! All in one! 🙂 It prompts the student to tell or write a creative story after picking a person, place and a thing to involve in the story!

Slide1

To Play:
Decide who goes first. Have that student flip over one card at a time (orange, then blue, then purple). When all three are flipped over and put on the mat, they should create a creative story incorporating all three elements. If they do that correctly, they return their cards to the bottom of the deck and earn a point.
If they get an foil card, their turn is over. They should return the cards to the bottom of the deck.

Other Ways to Play
–You can use this to target categories! Have the child sort through the cards and find the ones that go together. For example, the cowboy would go with the boots, sheriff badge, cactus, etc…
–Have the child look through the cards and choose any three to write/tell a creative story about. No game needed!
–Pull three cards and have the child say if those items go together or do not go together. Have them explain why or why not! They could list items that could be used instead if they do not go together.
–There are included worksheets for describing the main idea of your story, the problem, the solution, and sequencing the events of your story!

Included:
-8 people cards
-8 place cards
-24 thing cards
-1 page of foil cards
-1 page of pick anything cards
-4 pages of worksheets

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!
