This Christmas packet is designed for language students working on categorization and inferencing goals, but it is also great for mixed speech-language groups. Students love helping the elves pack Santa's sack with this activity!

What Doesn’t Belong in Santa’s Bag?
Students enjoy helping Santa and the elves find the gift that doesn’t belong in Santa’s bag.
Print a sheet and make copies for each student. Have them color the items that belong in the bag and “X” out the items that don’t belong based on the given scenario. For students with more advanced language skills, cut the scenario off the top of the page and have the student name the category on their own. There are 4 – 6 items in each bag.
Help the Elves Pack Santa’s Bag
• 27 cards
• 1 game board
Students draw a card and supply an answer before rolling a die for each turn. The card tells them what kind of gift someone requested for Christmas. (Ex: Mason wants toys that he can build tall towers with. The student could respond with blocks, L3gos, or bricks) The student must identify a gift that fulfills the wish before getting to move.
