Everybody loves selfies! Use these wacky selfies featuring a cast of kooky characters to grow language expression in your students! This was made for speech and language therapy, but it can also be used to address the speaking and listening Common Core Standards.
You can use the materials in any way you please (I plan on using this product in bits and pieces in various ways) but it's designed to be used as a card game. No one can resist a little friendly competition :)
This product can be used to practice describing (along with Sara Smith's EET) as well as answering questions. The questions posed in this product require students to make inferences, describe, give opinions, make predictions, attend to details, draw conclusions, interpret mood, read facial expressions, and defend their answers.
This download includes:
- 66 irresistible selfies and 6 wild cards for play
- 38 cards that require students to describe various aspects/traits of the character(s) in the selfies.
- 82 wh- question cards that require students to answer a question about the selfie card they draw. The questions require students to apply a variety of language skills as mentioned above.
- 1 page for having students draw their own selfie and then describe themselves in writing OR draw a picture of someone else and describe that person in writing.
- 1 game mat for the cards
- 5 handy dandy reference cards/visuals about HOW to answer each type of wh- question
- a couple of other fun, miscellaneous tid bits (EET cue cards to write on for describing and large colorful cameras so students can "take pictures" of themselves and peers and describe.)
- Explicit directions for prep and use
So many cards you can play again and again without it feeling repetitive!
This can be used for 2 totally separate games. Play using EITHER the wh- question card deck OR the describing card deck. Have students take turns picking a selfie photo card AND small card from either the question deck or describing deck. They should refer to and study the selfie and then answer the wh-question they picked OR the respond to the describing task. If their answer is appropriate, they get to keep the selfie. If it’s not appropriate, the selfie should be placed at the bottom of the selfie deck. Watch out for wild cards that shake up the game. When the game is over (either at the end of the session or when a set timer rings) the person with the most cards from the selfie deck wins!
This can also be used to address fluency and articulation at the conversation level.
