Week 3 - Shopping Spree: Tier 1 Vocabulary Activities
There are 32 pictured objects/animals and 32 description cards included in this printable set. There are coins displayed on the description cards that creates a fun addition to your game and also helps students works on coin recognition and addition with 1 and 2 digit numbers. There is a color and black/white version available. A NO-PRINT activity is also included as well as group and individual data sheets.
Print the tag cards and punch a hole where marked. You can string a piece of ribbon or yarn through the tags so you can hang them around the room for a larger group activity.
You can use the picture and description cards together or separately; this allows you to target many skills and level the activities to the needs of your students.
Pass out the tag cards so everyone has an even number of cards. Have students display the cards in front of them face-up. Read the description cards. The student who has that card raises his hand and you give him the definition card. Once students have all picture/description pairs, have students count up the money they have earned.
Divide the group into 2 teams. Have players from each team take turns listening to (or reading) the description and guessing what you are describing (there may be more than 1 correct answer since you aren’t using picture cards). Have teams add up earned money at the end to determine the winning team
Use the picture cards only. Have students pick a card and describe the picture and/or name associated words. You can time this (1 minute) to help students get quicker with word retrieval and language processing. Students earn a point for each detail or associated word they provide.
Give students the tags to hide around the room. Read a description and have students find that tag. When they find the tags, have student explain where they found it (e.g. “It was under the red table”)
With the NO-PRINT version of this set to have student compare objects. There are questions with superlative words included.
