This resource contains 20 POSTCARDS with REAL PHOTOS of famous U.S. landmarks and tourist attractions. It's an educational and engaging activity for older language students. It can be printed for face to face therapy, or used digitally via Google Slides™.
- The first level has a letter about the destination on the "back" of the postcard. which contains 8-10 fill-in-the-blanks for regular and irregular past tense verbs. A word bank of verbs (not conjugated) is also included on each page, if needed, since multiple verbs would be logical answers for many of the blanks.
- The second level is open-ended and contains blank spaces to write the entire letter. This version would be ideal for students that need less cues for forming the past tense in sentences, or for students working any number of language goals, including writing/telling narratives, first person pronouns, formulating grammatically correct complex/compound sentences, and comprehension (when paired with an article/passage/video about the landmark), to name a few.
- The first PDF is a color version of the activity that can be printed, written on, cut out, and folded to look like a postcard.
- The second PDF is a black/white version of the activity that can be printed, completed, cut out, and folded to look like a postcard.
- The third PDF contains a link to click to add this activity to your Google Drive™ as a Google Slides™ activity. There are fillable text boxes that can be typed into. This version can be played in teletherapy via screen share.
This activity would be perfect for after spring or summer break when students share about vacations, or to pair with your students' U.S. history or social studies curriculum.
