Kids from 3 to 13 LOVE Cariboo! I love using it to teach ANY skill. This set of cards were created to teach students how to answer wh- questions (and then practice the skill!) using a Christmas theme. It's ideal for speech and language therapy.
To play Cariboo the traditional way, slide the Cariboo cards into the Cariboo doors, and stack the question cards that contain the wh- questions to make a deck. If your student/client is a reader, he/she should pick a card from the question deck first. Then the student should then scan the images on the Cariboo doors and tell you which one he/she thinks answers the question. If the child is verbal, he or she should be expected to at least attempt to answer the question before being allowed to open the Cariboo door. Strategies are included for when your student does NOT know the answer.
**For non-readers, there’s no need to use the questions cards. Instead, I’ve included a list of all questions that you can simply read from. Be sure to cut those out and keep them with the corresponding set of cards. You can even make up your own questions! This is how I typically play since most of my students working on this skill cannot read.
Directions for prep and suggestions for storage are included.
DON’T HAVE CARIBOO? That’s okay!! You can still use this product.
Instead of putting the “answer” cards in the Cariboo doors, simply place them all face up on a table. Have students pick a question card and then scan the cards on the table to find the answer. You can use as many or as few answer choices as you would like. If students pick the correct answer, let them “keep” the card. If you want to make it a competition, whoever collects the most cards win.
This 12 page download includes:
1) Directions for use WITH OR WITHOUT a CARIBOO game!
2) Visuals with familiar items that you can use to teach the concept of answering who, what, when, why, and where questions
3) 1 set of cards for your Cariboo game doors and TWO sets of questions cards to go with them
4) Wh- questions in the form of a list that correspond to the pictures in the Cariboo doors.
Be sure to download the preview for a closer look!
*Question decks are coded so you will always know which which question deck you are using (even after you've cut out all of the cards).
If you download this and love it, please leave feedback! Your encouragement and feedback is what keeps me creating :))
This pairs perfectly with my All About Christmas Interactive book for Wh- Questions
