Here's a freebie category activity for you! It can also target teamwork, social language and following directions. All cards have a category listed on them.
Inspired by the game “Hyper Dash” which is available here:
Wild Planet Hyper Dash
You DO NOT need the game to do this activity! (I do provide an option for you if you do own it, though).
Spread out five or six circles (category cards) of different colors. Students will listen as the SLP calls out different colors. The student will pick up those colors in order as fast as they can. Students collect their dots and state items in the categories listed on the cards.
SLP can time students if they want. It can also be done as a relay or in teams for more participation.
If you have the Hyper Dash game: Put the cards on top of the disks. Students will listen as the Hyper Dash Unit calls out which color. When the student pushes that color, they collect the card. Once that round is over, the student will state items in the categories listed on the cards.
