This is a fun activity for your augmentative communication users or other minimally verbal students can practice making phrases and sentences using core words.
• 20 dice, each with 6 core words (and 1 or 2 fringe words),
• plus 1 die with some common nouns/fringe for students.
• 21 dice in all.
• Words are, for the most part, grouped by part of speech; in order to maximize the possibilities for syntactically correct phrases or sentences.
Choose which or how many dice to use for each student, dependent upon their ability or objective.
For a no-prep version of the game, use the dice:word index cards.
Students roll regular game dice, you determine which column of words to use for each student’s dice.
If you want to make a competitive game for a group, give students points for the number of words they can use per turn. The student - or small group - with the most points ‘wins.’
Students with speech generating devices should use their devices to “speak” the phrase or sentence once they have arranged the dice in the correct order.
