This product will keep you and your students busy for at least a week, if not more this holiday season! Check out the preview for a taste of this product!
Dress the elf! This activity has two elves and more than 25 pieces of accessories/clothing. This activity is perfect for a variety of tasks. I have used it to target requesting, making choices, sentence expansion, following directions, descriptive language, and much more! I have found it works very well as a reinforcer activity too.
This activity comes with a Christmas scene and more than 20 pieces to decorate with. I love using this activity for requesting, making choices, following directions, and much more! After making a scene, you can target all sorts of descriptive language tasks using the scene you created. If you are a fan of barrier games, you can also print 2 copies of the scene and decorations and use the materials to play a barrier game! The possibilities are endless.
This product includes 12 WH- story comprehension questions and 12 holiday-themed questions. I also included a page of blank WH- cards in case you would like to generate your own questions.
This product includes 6 yes/no story comprehension questions and 6 holiday-themed questions. I also included a page of blank yes/no cards in case you would like to generate your own questions.
This product includes 24 themed vocabulary cards. I often use vocabulary cards as a “primer” or to pre-teach before I read the book. I also love to throw these vocabulary cards into a sensory box with “snow” (cotton balls). That is always a hit! You can also print two copies of the cards and play a memory game.
These boards can be used to help retell the story. You can use the icons on page 29 to support the retell. You can also use these boards as smash mats! So fun! One board is specifically set up for sequencing, if that is a target you would like to focus on. Page 30 includes blank icons. I like to use these to let my students generate and draw their own ideas about how they would catch an elf. They can then glue their icons to the base mat. It sure fosters creativity!
This product includes 12 one-step direction cards and 12 two-step directions cards. I included a blank page of one and two-step direction cards in case you would like to generate your own directions!
This activity includes 9 dice. Five of the dice were made to accompany the Dress the Elf activity and the other four have vocabulary. I find these dice increase motivation to work on vocabulary, following directions and many other targets. I also use these dice often for sentence generation and expansion activities.
This is a fun reinforcer activity. After my students produce a desired number of articulation trials or answer WH-questions (or complete another task), I let them have a turn playing this small game. I cut out the elf targets and let the children throw a ball at the targets. I also love using poppers for this activity, if you have one!
This is one of my favorite interactive books. It accompanies the book How to Catch an Elf perfectly and targets WHERE questions and prepositions. It also has a lot of holiday vocabulary.
