Many SLPs own this highly coveted and popular game used in speech/language therapy and now you will have one more great way to make use of it---with your middle and high school students.
Use this as your go-to vocabulary activity! Each month teach your students 15 new meaningful words that are directly related to timely and seasonal themes. You’ll only need to change the cards out once per month and can review them over and over all month long to be sure your students achieve mastery and are gaining a deeper understanding of the words.
Included in this year-round vocabulary product:
180 themed and tier-2 words for improving vocabulary knowledge and use.
180 student-friendly definitions and 180 original sentences.
12 vocabulary strategy cards plus one sheet of blank cards to write in your own additional strategies
Data collection sheets
Student Response Sheets
Gem reward cards
Chose the set of vocabulary that is appropriate for the month.
Laminate and cut your word cards and fit them into each of the 15 “doors” of the game.
Cut out and laminate the 12 vocabulary building strategy cards .
SLP can choose to focus on only specific strategy cards or use them in the numbered order that has been pre-assigned. Decide if the student needs to answer just one of the cards or more before allowing them to earn a turn.
The student should then pick a word. The SLP will read the provided word, definition and sample sentence included with this product. The definition provided will help students understand how the word is typically used in everyday language. Student should then respond to the vocabulary strategy card chosen by the SLP/teacher.
***Don't own Cariboo?? No problem! You can still use the vocabulary cards and strategy cards without the game!***
