Receptive/Expressive Language Game Guess my pet?
This is a fun language game that has children guessing what pet they have. It works on describing animals as students give clues to their classmates. As this is hard for many children there are visual cue sheets to help them think of what to say. Some crazy pets are part of the package.
Your family has allowed you to get a pet! You are so excited you want to share with your friends. Some of the pets are a little unusual.Can you give your friends clues as to what your pet might be?
This activity comes with a list of clues that you can give to help your friends guess. Can you say where your pet lives and how many legs it has?
There are 60 pet cards
so the game can be played over and over with different pets.
This is an excellent game to teach how to use descriptors and give critical details that help your audience.
There are several ways to play the game so you can target multiple skills
☺ Have the child pick a card and not show it to the others. The other students can try to guess what the pet is. (visual supports included).
☺ Have the group know what the pet is and have them give him clues to figure it out. You can have the child leave the room and you show the group and then the child comes back in or you have the child sit in a chair with his back to the class and someone can hold the card up.
☺ If you allow the child the ability to pick their own it becomes a social skills lesson as students put both the clues about the animals and their knowledge of the friend to guess what pet their friend might pick.
✂️ Cut out the animal cards.
☞ Depending on the skill of the students you might want to decide which animals will be available to the students.
☞ I laminate my cards and then store them in a folder.
☞ You can have the cue card for descriptors out and so that student can refer to it as they give the cues to their peers.
☞ Give them a card or let them pick a card from a selection.
☞ See how many cues it takes for the students to guess what the animal is.
☞ This is great for both giving descriptors as well as for the listeners to use the cues to guess the animal letting you work on both receptive and expressive skills.
