Wednesday, November 20, 2013

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/What-Am-I-Christmas-Edition-A-Describing-Game-987656 

 I think these games are by far my favorite series.  They are so much fun to make and the students just love playing bingo. Seriously, it's like Go Fish....Bingo never gets old. 

Targets:A fun guessing game targeting receptive language, expressive language, and semantics!

All graphics property of mycutegraphics.com, Graphics Factory and MyClipArtStore!!

Ages: 3+

Includes: 22 pages (not all pages shown on the thumbnail it wouldn't fit!)=
--Receptive Language skills (pages 3-6)= 20 Christmas vocabulary cards. SLP or students may lead (you decide). Use the green vocabulary cards to target receptive language! Read each clue to students and wait. See how many clues it takes for them to guess the object. If this is difficult for the students, place all the big picture cards (red cards) on the table, so the students can guess based on the pictures available.


--Expressive Language and Semantics (pages7-14): use the blue cards to have students come up with descriptions and lead the game themselves. Have students think of a word for each category and let the group guess. This will expand students descriptive vocabulary skills
--Bingo Cards (pages15-19): use the receptive/expressive/semantics cards to play bingo!
--Descriptive Mat (page 20): To practice how to describe the object as a group, place a red picture card in the middle, as a group talk about the attributes of that object!

Other fun uses: Place the big picture cards face up on the table. Have students pick one or more cards and create sentences or stories!

Monday, November 4, 2013

Wow, 100 posts already!? 
This last year has flown by! December is quickly approaching and so is my 1st blogiversary!

Before I get ahead of myself, let us focus on the present.
THANKSGIVING! 
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Pronoun-Thanksgiving-960142
Available in my TpT store for  $3.50

Targets: syntax and morphology. Specifically targeting pronouns (he,she, they, his, her, and theirs), some plurals (pies, leaves, rakes, turkeys, etc.), auxiliaries (is/are, has/have) some verbs (harvesting collecting, sailed, mashed, etc.) and using all in complete sentences.

All graphics property of http://myclipartstore.com/ and www.graphicsfactory.com

Ages: 3+

Includes: 35 pages (not all pages shown on the thumbnail it wouldn't fit!)= title page, directions, 12 pronoun "poster" pages, 4 object/animal card pages (24 cards), 2 sorting mats, 11 sentence completion pages (42 sentences), 1 game board page, 1 die, 1 terms of use, 1 credits page.
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Pronoun-Thanksgiving-960142

Game play: Use pronoun pages as a guide. Cut out cards (put face down, in a bag/envelope) have students take turns pulling out an animal or object. They complete the sentence possessive sentence (The turkey is hers). Use sentence cards to practice (he, she, they, his, her, their). After some practice have the students play the board game or use the die to formulate their own Thanksgiving sentences.
