I Spy Something...
That is fuzzy, black, fragile…..We use several different attributes to describe objects, concepts, and ideas. Describing helps kids develop vocabulary and language processing skills necessary for learning. In an effort to help support Speech and Language development at home, I’ve put together several “scavenger hunt” lists to help. Some lists allow students to hunt in their home, some require them to hunt in their minds. Some lists encourage them to hunt through a dictionary or Google for extra help. It’s not cheating, it’s a resource! And all resources add to our vocabulary development. Use these lists to send home, in therapy, in the classroom, or while reading books. Anywhere kids need to speak, they need to practice.
36 “Scavenger Hunt” lists target the following skills:
Describing with Adjectives for texture, appearance, or composition
Describing with Comparison (-er, -est, and As ______ as ______)
Describing with Functions
Describing with Categories
Describing with Parts
Describing Location (Where and Prepositions)
Describing When (Sequence and Setting)
Describing Who (Occupation and Help)

Most of the lists are geared towards Kindergarten through 2nd grade students. However, some of the vocabulary is appropriate for 4 year olds. Some of the vocabulary gives a glimpse into 4th and 5th grade curriculum. Exposure is good! The lists that target older vocabulary are framed in Gray. There is one very challenging list with an answer key framed in blue. All lists can be printed in black and white.
