Hello! First of all, you need to have a ©Cranium CARIBOO game to play this game. I know many speechies out there have this precious game in their possession! This
activity is a fun way to learn Halloween vocabulary, as to what it is, how to say it,
and how to describe it. Included in this packet beyond the vocabulary is a visual
for describing the item.
Included in this packet:
30 Halloween vocabulary word squares (black framed). To be inserted into
©Cariboo game slots.
30 Halloween vocabulary word squares (purple framed). TO be used as a deck of
cards that students will pick from.
A visual “Let’s Describe It” page with various cues for student to describe item
(i.e. size, shape, color, use, parts, sound, where (location), etc.)
Print all activity pages on cardstock.
Cut out the squares (4 pages of them)
Select 15 black framed Halloween squares to put in slots.
Select same 15 items purple framed Halloween squares and form a deck, face down.
Have students take turns selecting card from the deck. Depending on student’s
speech goals have him/her practice saying the word, describing the word, finding an
association, etc. I’ve even told a 3 sentence story and asked wh-questions with the word.
If at conversation level, ask open-ended questions with the word.
Of course, have student use key to open the door of the word selected. Have him/her place
ball in river, if there is a ball. Sixth ball open the treasure chest.
