The Mr. Potato Head app by Originator is a fantastic tool for fun and learning in small groups!
You can work on following directions, verbal expression, and answering different kinds of questions. The whole time your students are playing, you are getting a great view into their language skills!
This companion activity offers visual supports for sequencing, open ended verbal expression pages, pages for writing responses to "WH" questions, and multiple choice "WH" questions.
Each board in the app is represented, so you can have your students pick and have artifacts to send home with them. A list of goals are included in the companion so that you can align the fun with targets that are appropriate for your group!
What's different about this companion?
This has goals, specific "WH" question pages (both for writing and listening/speaking), as well as multiple choice "WH" question pages for our students who are challenged with verbal expression.
It's a ton of fun to use a "Fun Friday"- check it out!
