This is a fun, following directions game that challenges your students!
How to Set Up:
Print all six picture cards back to back (or glue/laminate that way). The apples should be back to back, the notebooks should be back to back, and the schools should be back to back. For example, when you flip over the red apple, you should see the green apple.
Print out the direction sheets (3). Cut them in half and laminate for durability.
Organize into a labeled manila envelope.
How to Play:
Player 1 (or the SLP) picks a direction card. They tell player 2 how to set up the board. For example, “red apple up, then the red notebook, then the white school”.
Player 1 reads the directions one by one, allowing player 2 enough time to follow them. (for added difficulty, player 1 could read two directions at a time)
Player 2 follows the directions, moving the picture cards around on the floor/table.
After the last direction has been read aloud, player 1 can describe how the cards should be arranged (as shown in the bottom picture). OR, to make it easier, player 1 can show player 2 the bottom of the card.
-There are varying levels of difficulty of the directions.
-The original set up is shown on the top of the card, and the correct solutions is shown on the bottom of the card for self-checking.
-Feel free to print the picture cards at ‘half-size’ when printing if you wish the make the game smaller/more portable.
