Game play follows the rules for UNO with a describing twist!
Print, cut, and if desired, laminate the cards. Shuffle and deal 7 cards to each player. Place the remaining cards face down, turning over one card to create a discard pile. Players take turns matching the top card of the discard pile by NOSE color, number, or action (i.e. skip). If a player doesn’t have a match, he/she draws cards until able to play. A wild card can be played at any time and allows the player to change the color being played. Wild draw 4 cards can only be used if a player isn’t able to play a matching card. This card allows the player to change the color and the person to the left of the player must draw 4 cards. If a player has only one card left, he/she must say, UNO before discarding.
I recommend using the Expanding Expression Tool by Sara L. Smith in conjunction with Christmas EET UNO. (www.expandingexpression.com) Each card has a colored “bead” corresponding to the EET. Present any object/picture to students and have them express the detail indicated as it corresponds to the EET.
For articulation practice, players describe any word given according to the EET “bead” on the card using target sounds.
