What educators are saying

Great way to practice and reinforce vocabulary knowledge. I like that it is a great seasonal resource.


This is a motivating BACK TO SCHOOL THEMED BOOM CARDSGAME that's full of LANGUAGE OPPORTUNITIES....but can be used for ARTICULATION too! There are many ways to target language goals with this one activity (just see the first card of the preview for ideas!) while using a relatable theme AND fun vocabulary.

You won't have any trouble motivating your students, as they race to find which school-themed object (i.e. pencil, desk, school bus, notebook, etc.) is shown twice on each card!

The first card of the deck gives ideas for how to target a variety of language goals, including verbs, categories, description, and more. The next card displays 18 pictures with labels, to help your students become familiar with the themed vocabulary, if needed.

On each of the next 40 cards, there are two boxes, each containing 9 pictures. One picture in both boxes is the same.... and it's a race to find and call out the duplicated picture!

At the end of the deck, there is one card that displays all 18 labeled pictures again. This time, the images are "moveable", so students can find words with their target articulation sound, and drag and drop the pictures for more isolated speech practice. You could also have a student create a story using the selected words.


This deck is FULL of versatility– use this deck for your entire caseload! Just adapt the activity to focus on whatever skills your students are working on!
