Week 1 - Summer Syntax
What a versatile summer pack!!! Check out ALL the awesome materials and ideas that are included in this week's bundle:
Beach bag (42) – people, animals/insects, subject pronouns
Goggles (40) – conjunctions, determiners, possessive and object pronouns
Shovels (24) – prepositions
Buckets (65) – regular and irregular verbs (all in infinitive form except “be verb conjugations and “will” is used 2x)
Flip-flops (66) – common nouns
Ice cream cones (48) – adjectives and adverbs
*All cards are available in color and black/white
**Multiple meaning words can be used in any part of speech as long as the sentence is grammatically and semantically correct
**Blank cards are also included. Leave a blank set of cards available for students to use as a “wild card”. You can also use other markers (like bingo chips, or objects) to represent wild cards.
How to Play
Each student will receive 3 cards in each category. Students should also each get 2 “wild” cards. Students take turn forming a sentence using their cards. They earn 1 point for each word in the sentences formed (e.g. “I played at the park yesterday = 6 words). Verbs will have to be conjugated orally by the student (you can also keep post-it notes with the game and have student write the verb conjugation down and stick it on the verb card to showed the appropriate verb form as they build their sentence. Once the student has used the words in sentences, those cards are returned to the main pile for each category and the students picks new cards to replace the ones they used (the wild card remains with the student at all times).
Other Game Ideas:
Flip-flops and Beach Bags – pull the common object and animal cards and put them in a beach bag. Have students take turns pulling a card and describing the item with 3 details.
Pass the bucket – use all the action verbs on the bucket cards. Pick a card and have one student use the the verb in a sentence in the present tense. Then have the student pass the card to another student and have that student use the word in the past tense. You can also have students roll a dice and use the verb with a singular subject noun if they roll #1, 3, 5 and plural subject noun if they get #2, 4, 6.
Delicious Sentence Cones – use the ice cream cards and have students pick a card and use the adjective/adverb in a sentence. The goal is to create elaborate and complex sentences that are not run-on sentences. Give students 1 point for each word in their sentence.
A NO-PRINT activity and data sheets are included with this MEGA PACK too!!!
Week 2 - Multiple Choice WH- Questions with Picture Support
This activity is perfect for preschoolers and early elementary students who have difficulty with language processing and understanding the question/response format.
There are 42 printable cards included in this pack. Cards are available in color and black and white. Each card contains a simple “who”, “what” or “where” questions with 3 multiple choice picture responses provided. This is a great way to build listening comprehension and helping students understand how to respond to WH- questions.
A NO-PRINT activity and group and individual data sheets are also included in this amazing bundle.
Week 3 - Monkeying Around with Multiple Meanings
There are 24 multiple meanings words used in this game set. The printable game is available in COLOR and BLACK and WHITE. There is also a NO-PRINT activity included for the same words. An individual and group data sheet are included.
1. Bingo Game – Use the definition cards and bingo boards to play this game. Have students pick a definition and find a word that matches on their boards. First one to fill up their board wins!
2. Word-Definition Matching – Match the word cards with both definition cards.
Week 4 - Sequencing Event with Pictures
There are 4 sequencing sets included in this pack. Each sequencing set includes 6 cards to sequence. Cards are available in color and black/white and include 1-2 sentences under a picture describing that part of the sequence.
What’s included in the printable set (color and black/white):
- Making a Pizza
- Getting Ready for Bed

There are also graphic organizers and writing paper to help students with written expression. Sequencing a paragraph is a critical skill that many students with special needs struggle with. This is an excellent way to teach the skill then have students generalize the skills they have learned to other events and sequences.
