Each player is given a plate or bowl with nacho chips. When it is their turn, they will draw the topping cards to create their own recipe for nachos. If they draw a special card, the student must follow the directions. They can keep the special cards until it can be used if needed. Special cards are not returned to the pile after they are drawn. At the end of the game, students will discuss if they would taste, trade, or trash the nachos they created. Also, handouts are included for students to write their answers.
This game can be used in a variety of ways. Students can practice any type of articulation or fluency drill to earn the topping cards. After drawing a topping card, you could ask students to use a carrier phrase.
An optional set of 24 situations is included. Students must determine how to react in the situation . Some situations will be “nacho business”/not your business and other situations will be ones where they should tell an adult. Many students with pragmatic difficulties struggle with this skill. Also, students can work on expressing their opinions in an appropriate way after drawing a topping.
