This Crazy 8s game, created by One SLP in a Pod, is a great way to work on labeling, colors, categories, turn-taking, learning game rules, asking questions, making requests and statements, and most of all, having FUN!
There are 10 categories with 8 cards in each category. There are also 8 "Crazy 8" cards. The students take turns matching items by categories or colored stars on the cards. Students can also use a Crazy 8 card anytime they'd like.
The SLP can determine how many category cards to use, based on the needs and strengths of the students in the group. The categories include: zoo/wild animals, insects, things in the ocean, snack/junk food, forest animals, vehicles/transportation, camping items, fruit, farm animals and beach items.
Who doesn't like playing card games? I know my students love it! Enjoy!
