This roll and glue activity is perfect for young students as well as special education classrooms and speech therapy.
As an SLP, I often use this type of activity for small groups of students on the autism spectrum or with students who use AAC. Gluing on items (rather than drawing) is often easier for students with fine motor difficulties.
Make a copy of the apple pieces page for each student. Depending on your students, you may need to pre-cut the pieces. Print out a copy of the dice legend for game play. You will also need a dice and glue.
To start, give the student(s) a blank apple to glue on a piece of construction paper.
On each turn, a student rolls the dice and states the number rolled (verbally or with AAC). S/he then tells the group or clinician what piece to glue on OR the student might identify it from a field of choices depending on the student’s communication level. If the piece is already glued on, then roll again! Once the turn is finished, have the next student request a turn and then pass the dice.
This activity can target:
