October is here and that means Halloween. I love capitalizing on holiday excitement by using Halloween themed therapy materials.
Looking for some Halloween vocabulary building fun? Kim Lewis from Activity Taylor put together a colorful, engaging and FUN Halloween Attributes: Compare and Contrast game. This is available in her Teachers Pay Teachers Store (where she has so many wonderful products).
And guess what? She gave me one to give away.
With this game students can practice comparing and contrasting with QR codes, charts and even a Cariboo option. Kids love the colorful comparing sets: jack-o-lanterns, witch hats, and costumed characters.
To play, one set of cards is placed face-up on the table. SLP reads first clue on clue card. For example when using the Jack-o-lantern set, first clue is “I look angry”. Student removes all the pumpkins that don’t look angry. Next clue “I have a triangle nose.” Remove cards that don’t have triangle nose. One more clue and they are down to one card. Use the QR code to check the answer (they love checking and seeing that they are right). It reminds me of the classic “Guess Who” game.
Plus there are bonus Cariboo cards (if you are lucky enough to have a Cariboo game). You can have students describe the hat they are going to open or you give them 2 or 3 descriptors that let them know which one to choose. If you don’t have Cariboo, there is a cool little chart option to use.
