Describing Actions and More:
These cards were created to be picture stimuli for a variety of language tasks with built in visual support. They come in full color printable cards (2 per page) and BOOM Cards. They contain 50 full color photos of real people doing relatable things with language prompts on the sides. The therapist/teacher can use the cards at their own discretion but here are the skills I target using them in speech therapy sessions:
- Sentence formulation: Tell who is doing the action, what they are doing, and where are they doing it at.
- Early inferencing: there are bonus prompts to keep the discussion going: why are they doing it?, how do they feel?, and what do you think will happen next?
- -Ing verbs or identifying the action: The student can name the action.
- Past tense: You can prompt the student by saying: “look at what the kids did yesterday, tell me what they did.”
- Pronouns: work on pronouns he, she, they while telling about the pictures.
- WH Questions: who, what, where, & why questions are built into the prompts. You could expand and ask more questions about each picture.
- Adjectives: Have the student describe the objects, places, or people in the picture using adjectives.
What's the Problem?
These cards were created to be picture stimuli to discuss relatable problems and talk about the size of the problem, consequences, how you would react, and how you would solve the problem (there are questions probes on the card). It comes in full color printable cards (2 per page) and BOOM Cards
These cards are meant to be open ended (no right or wrong answers). The cards were designed to be used at the therapist’s or teacher’s discretion and can be used for social skills, language processing, narrative skills, or just as a conversation starter for carry over. There is no text description of the problem, the student will look at a picture and analyze the visual information. Answers may vary on the child’s perception of the size of the problem. The therapist/teacher may choose to provide a narrative or example if the student needs that level of support. There are 52 total real photo cards in two formats: print and BOOM cards.
- Keep in mind, each person will have different ideas about the problems, consequences/reactions, and solutions based on their unique backgrounds and experiences. The therapist/teacher should be conscious of this and guide the student in the conversation appropriately.
- If the child’s perception of the problem is bigger or smaller than it is, this is a good opportunity to discuss the size of the problem and the size of the reaction. I have some students who struggle with this (for example: a broken pencil is a small problem and should not have a “big problem” reaction such as yelling or getting angry. I teach the child that this is a small problem and we talk about how to fix it).
- You may not want to use all of the question probes on the side of the card and that is okay. Choose which parts you want to discuss with your students.
- You can expand the activity by sharing examples from your own life that relate to the pictures.
Basic Subject-Verb Agreement:
I have so many students with oral grammar errors and one of the areas I see the most is subject verb agreement, sound familiar? If students struggle with this orally they almost always struggle with it in their written expression too. I needed a quick way to practice these skills to support their educational progress in the classroom. This comes in an interactive digital version (BOOM Cards) and a printable 1/2 page size card if you want a printable version. I originally only designed it to be digital but I received many requests to make a print version too.
These cards were created to be work on basic subject-verb agreement. I provided a quick grammar review to use with students if needed. The main purpose of this deck was to provide practice but you can use them to teach the concepts too. The picture stimuli are real photos of people and things that children can relate to.
- 12 cards for is vs. are (a mix of plural and singular subjects)
- 12 cards for has vs. have (a mix of plural and singular subjects)
- 12 cards for was vs. were (a mix of plural and singular subjects)
- 12 cards for verbs that end in ’s’ or ‘es’ (a mix of plural and singular subjects)
- 12 cards for a mix of the above targets
What Happened Yesterday? Past Tense Verbs:
have so many students with oral grammar errors, if students struggle with this orally they almost always struggle with it in their written expression too. I needed a quick way to practice these skills to support their educational progress in the classroom. This comes in an interactive digital version (BOOM Cards) and a printable 1/2 page size card if you want a printable version. I originally only designed it to be digital but I received many requests to make a print version too.
These cards were created to be work on regular and irregular past tense verbs. I provided a quick grammar review to use with students if needed. The main purpose of this deck was to provide practice but you can use them to teach the concepts too. The picture stimuli are real photos of people and things that children can relate to. This deck is great for students who struggle with these concepts orally or in their writing. They come in a printable and BOOM card (digital version).
- 20 regular past tense cards (these are easier to recognize because they are words that end in -ed).
- 20 irregular past tense cards (these are harder to recognize because the stay the same or change, I put a contrast with an -ed version to help with discrimination, example: eated vs. ate) .
- 20 mixed regular/irregular past tense cards
I typically review the regular and irregular cards first and then do the mixed set to see if they are grasping the concepts and can discriminate the regular vs. irregular verbs. When I work on these skills, I often just ask for the response orally, but I included the text choices if you need them or to provide feedback for the student. . I present the cards by saying “Look at this picture” and then I say what they are doing today “Today they are eating lunch” Then I say “Now it is the next day, let’s say what they did yesterday. I then ask the student to say what they did yesterday “Yesterday they ate lunch” or if the students need more support I say the cloze phrase and have them fill in the verb “Yesterday they _____ lunch.”
Name the Category & More Cards:
- 37 Name the Category Cards: These cards have an image of multiple items and the students are prompted to name the category. There is a carrier phrase at the bottom that you can use to help elicit the category (“They are all _____”). I also included a hidden clue in the digital version to use if the child is having difficulty naming the category (optional). The student will slide the box down to reveal the clue. If you are using the printed card, you can provide a verbal cue as needed. I have included 20 main categories and subcategories for food, animals, and clothing. The purpose of these cards is for the student to respond orally (there is no self checking element or multiple choice option in the digital version).
- 25 Name 3 items in a Category: These cards have three checkmarks for the students tap as they name three items in the category prompted. There is a hidden clue to help the student if they need help getting started (there is picture of one of the items to help them get started naming in the digital version). The student will slide the box down to reveal the clue. The purpose of this card is for the student to respond orally, there is an interactive element of tapping the checkmarks as you name the items in the digital version. If you are using the printed version, they can tap the boxes or use a dry erase marker to check the boxes as they go.
- 16 Tap the Category: There is a grid of 12 pictures and the student is asked to tap all of the items in the given category. In the digital version, the student will click “submit" to see if they selected the correct pictures. This is a receptive task (unlike the other two tasks that are expressive). In the printed version they can tap the pictures with their finger or circle them with a dry erase marker.
Compare/Contrast Cards & More Cards
These cards were created to be work on basic compare/contrast skills in three different activities: comparing and contrasting two pictures, which one doesn’t belong, and venn diagrams. I provided a quick compare/contrast review to use with students if needed. The main purpose of this deck was to provide practice but you can use them to teach the concepts too. The picture stimuli are real photos that children can relate to.
- 50 Compare/Contrast Cards. These cards have two pictures and the student is prompted to say how they are alike and different. Print version: the student can check the box with a dry erase marker. Boom version: The student will tap the checkmarks to circle them when they are finished. These cards are not self checking, they are designed to use with a therapist, teacher, or parent providing feedback.
- 24 Which One Doesn’t Belong Cards: The student will look at four pictures and find the one that doesn’t belong. Print version: They will draw an X over the one that doesn’t belong with a dry erase marker (or simply touch it with their finger). They will fill in the blanks and put a checkmark in the boxes (optional). Boom version: They will drag the red X over the one that doesn’t belong. The student will finish the prompts on the card explaining their choice. They will tap the checkmarks to circle them when they are finished. These cards are self checking if the X is placed over a picture and checkmarks are circled (if the student selected the wrong picture, it will pop the X back to the side of the card and you will hear “whoops”sound, this is a BOOM card feature).
- 15 Venn Diagram cards. Print version: Use a dry erase marker to write in the Venn diagram (or print in grayscale and use a pen/pencil). Boom version: The student will drag the facts that are unique to the two pictures to the outside of the circles. They will drag the facts they have in common to the middle where the circles overlap. These cards are self checking and if they answer wrong, it will pop the words back to the bottom and they can try again (it will play the “whoops” sound).
Multiple Meaning Words:
Picture cards to teach basic multiple meaning words. Struggling to teach this concept? Start with these cards! These cards were created to provide picture stimuli to help students learn how to define multiple meaning words. They contain 80 full color real photos that students can relate to (two pictures to represent both of the meanings) . There are prompts right on the card to help the student start thinking about how to define and differentiate the two meanings. The prompts includes are: parts of speech, use it in a sentence, and say the definition. Most of the words are true multiple meaning words but I also included two homophones: chili/chilly and hare/hair. I designed this to be an interactive activity with a therapist, teacher, or parent; not an independent activity. The student will need feedback for the two definitions.

Basic Defining & Describing:
Do your students struggle defining words? Do they tend to try to use it in a sentence when you ask for a definition? If this sounds familiar, these cards will help. They come in full color printable cards (2 per page) and BOOM Cards. These cards were created to provide picture stimuli and prompts to help students learn how to define and describe functional vocabulary. I start with using nouns that are easily recognizable, this will give your students confidence and success that you can later build on with other types of vocabulary (more advanced or actions). Each card comes with visuals and prompts to help your student form a basic definition of the word. I always prompt my students to start with the main category and then 3 defining features or attributes (A dog in an animal that barks, plays fetch, and lives in your house). I work with my students not to give vague attributes or features (example: if it is animal, I do not accept “It has eyes.” I explain to my students that all animals have eyes and we need to think of something unique about the animal that sets it apart).
This deck contains 55 full color real photos that students can relate to. There are prompts right on the card to help the student start thinking about how to define the words. I also included define/describe visuals at the bottom if needed and an optional fillable script. I broke down the words in different categories (animals, food/drink, clothing, tools, household, toys, body parts, and vehicles). When I start with this concept, I find that student start having success when I stay in the same category (it helps with the repetition of the first part: starting with category). After they are successful in the separate categories, I use the “mixed” button that has a variety of different categories. I designed these cards for elementary aged students but they could be also used with older students depending on the skill level.
