Use these fun summer questions in speech and language therapy to address answering questions AND/OR carryover of newly learned articulation or fluency skills into spontaneous speech. I mean, isn’t that the biggest challenge of ALL?
► 48 summer themed questions cards
► 8 blank cards to write your own questions
► Build-your-own summer themed die or spinner
► 2 summer themed board games (3 pages total)
► an answer key just in case you don’t know the answers
1) You can use it with 1 or students - or even an entire classroom as conversation starters or ice breakers.
2) Use it to target answering WH-questions or even better...answering WH-questions in a complete sentence.
3) Use it to assess (and take data on) carryover of articulation and fluency skills into conversational speech.
4) Use it for an end of year classroom or speech therapy. Keep reading to learn how to make it a competition.
5) Use it with the 2 included board games. Student must answer X questions in order to earn a turn at the board game.
6) This is how I use it most:
Split students up into 2 teams, and let them make names for their team. I like to use 2 service bells or buzzers for players to ring in, but it’s not necessary. If you don’t have bells or buzzers, decide on a word that each player will call out to “buzz in.” Once teams are formed, one player at a time (from each team) will represent their team. If you have them sitting in circles, each player will pass the bell around the circle after each question so that everyone gets a turn. If they are standing in lines they can come up to the table with the 2 bells or buzzers when it’s their turn to represent their team. It’s simple turn taking. With 1 player from each team competing, the teacher or therapist will pick a card and read the question (or the students can read it - especially if you are targeting fluency or articulation skills during reading). The first of the 2 students to answer correctly earns a point for their team. Keep score however you would like; I always keep points on a white board as the visual keeps students motivated.
PREP? Just print, cut & play! (laminate for durability). No wasted paper!
⚠️ This is great practice for spontaneous articulation practice and for using fluency techniques under time pressure!
