Searching for some speech gold? Here is a simple, easy language activity introducing categorization to your students. This activity is a great receptive way to address categories for your student. The objective of this activity to receptively identify appropriate categories for a random group of objects/pictures. To do this, the students must place each gold coin (with picture of an object) into their appropriate pot of gold. One variation of the game: Students can select a coin (or coins may be divided up equally amongst the students). On their turn, the student will select one of their coins and determine which category it belongs to. A second variation on this game may be to place all of the coins into pots of gold (some correctly and some incorrectly). On their turn, the student must determine a coin that is incorrectly labeled. Then, the student must state why it doesn't belong and where it correctly goes. This continues until all of the coins are placed into their appropriate pot of gold. Included in the download:
* 10 pots of gold
* 60 coins (3-7 for each pot of gold)
