This 26-page file contains four games for speech and language therapy:
1. Gingerbread Synonyms and Antonyms: 20 synonym pairs (gingerbread boy/gingerbread house) and 20 antonym pairs (gingerbread boy/gingerbread girl).
2. Gingerbread Pronouns: For this game, there are large pictures of a gingerbread boy, a gingerbread girl, and a boy and girl together. There are also 50 object cards in basic categories (shapes, colors, numbers, letters, animals, vehicles, toys, and food). Receptive Game Play: Place object cards on the table. Give instructions to the children – “Give a number to him,” “Give a ball to them.” Expressive Game Play: Have students take turns giving an object card to the boy and the girl. There are sentence strips included for target phrases ("He/She has the___," "They have the ___," "The ___is his/hers/theirs").
3. Gingerbread Barrier Game: You can use this for simple following directions (e.g., "Put the girl between the trees") or as a true barrier game.
4. Beware the Gingerbread Pirate! Open Ended Card Game: Use with any target objective. Place cards in a pile in the center of the table. Have students take turns drawing cards. If the student selects a gingerbread boy or girl, they get to keep it. If the student selects a Gingerbread Pirate, they must return all of their cards to the table. The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. There are numbers in the corner of the card game as well. This way, you can choose to use point value rather than total number of cards to determine the winner.
