PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you work with augmentative communication users who need to work on moving beyond single word responses to more phrases and even sentences? Running out of ideas for ways to practice?
This is a game similar to Scrabble®, but using words instead of letters to build phrases and sentences.
The words provided are predominantly core words, with some fringe words common to students.

• The first player uses 2 or more words to make a phrase or sentence. (You can differentiate for each student depending on their syntax skills, or determine a minimum phrase length, or play with no minimum rules at all).
• For some of my students I don’t require correct syntax as long as the phrase makes sense.
• The player counts how many words (s)he used and scores that number of points for that turn.

I started with a list of 50 first words, then added most of the next 50, to make 100 unique words. (You will find the reference for these lists in the resource.)
I then added the ‘first 15’ again, and then the ‘first 30’ again; making duplicates and then triplicates of some words that are the highest frequency.

I also added some nouns that are frequently used by students.

There are also 9 blank “wild” tiles. You can choose to use as many of them - or none - as you please.
