What educators are saying

My students loved looking through the silly pictures and making their own silly selfie faces as they described pictures.


Kids love selfies! Use these 66 crazy selfies to target language skills with your students! See ALL the skills you can target with this fun resource below! These activities were made for speech and language therapy, but they can also be used to address the speaking and listening Common Core Standards! There are so many task cards that this resource won't feel repetitive.


  • Describing **Use with or without the EET
  • Making inferences
  • Interpreting emotions and mood
  • Giving opinions
  • Making logical predictions
  • Answering WH- questions
  • Explaining rationale for answers
  • These can also be used to address fluency and articulation at the conversation level. The selfies spark LOTS of discussion!

What's in this download?

► 5 visuals to help you teach HOW to answer each type of wh- question ► 66 irresistible selfies and 6 wild cards for play

► 38 cards that require students to describe various aspects/traits of the character(s) in the selfies.

► 82 wh- question cards that require students to answer a question about the selfie card they draw. The questions require students to apply a variety of language skills as mentioned above.

► 1 page for having students draw their own selfie, and then, describe themselves in writing OR draw a picture of someone else and describe that person in writing.

► 1 game mat for the cards

► a couple of other fun, miscellaneous tid bits (EET cue cards to write on for describing and large colorful cameras so students can "take pictures" of themselves and peers and describe.)

► Explicit directions for prep and use

What buyers are saying:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Probably one of the best things I have ever purchased on TPT. The clipart + visuals cannot be beat.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My middle schoolers had so much fun with your product. I loved all of the graphics and the tie-in to EET. My students thought I was so cool because of this game.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I agree with other reviewers...this product is awesome. It's such a creative idea and concept. I especially like the WH questions, the prompts for describing and customization. Thank you! I have as much fun as my students do during this activity! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wow, Mia! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me!! I am using the Lindamood Bell Visualizing/Verbalizing program with some of my language impaired students - What a creative and engaging way to get the kids to use descriptive language skills! Thank you for the added bonus of the 'Who, What, When, Where, Why..." anchor charts.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is another winner! Thanks Mia! I love that I can use these with my language students as well as my articulation students. This packet is a fun way to keep students involved. I love all the creativity!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I LOVE this! Your activities are always so visually engaging, yet so functional. I love that I can incorporate the EET with this and that it can be used with younger and older students. Thank you!

How to use this resource:

► You can use the materials in any way you please (I often use bits and pieces), but it's designed to be used as a card game. Whoever gets to keep the most selfies WINS! No one can resist a little friendly competition :)

► This product can be used to practice describing (along with Sara Smith's EET) as well as answering questions. The questions posed in this product require students to make inferences, describe, give opinions, make predictions, attend to details, draw conclusions, interpret mood, read facial expressions, and defend their answers.

► Have students take turns picking a selfie photo card AND a task card. Then, they'll respond to there task card (all skills listed above). If their answer is appropriate, they get to keep the selfie. If it’s not appropriate, the selfie should be placed at the bottom of the selfie deck. Watch out for wild cards that shake up the game. When the game is over (either at the end of the session or when a set timer rings) the person with the most cards from the selfie deck wins!
