Product Description
Two delicious open-ended Thanksgiving or Christmas speech and language activities to teach holiday food vocabulary or any other skill. These adorable games can be used in multiple ways, plus you get 5 different language Quick Lists to individualize for your students.

I am so very thankful for all of my sweet followers here and on my blog, so I am posting this fun little freebie to say thank you! (Love my peeps!) Please leave feedback after downloading, so I can see who's stopped by. I'm feeling the warm fuzzies!

I created two games for you because I love having versatile activities that can be used with a wide range of students. These activities work for PK-4th grade because you can individualize each student's goals. Super easy sessions!

How to play:

Don’t Eat Tom!
1. One student turns around or leaves the room.
2. The other students choose a character on the board to be Tom.
3. Put a small candy, other food or token on each character.
(I suggest popcorn or cereal if candy in a no-no! Alternately, for a non-food game, the children may collect bingo chips, small fun erasers or other tokens)
4. The first student then names the picture, says their word or answers a question. (The numbers on the squares correspond to the quick list questions, or can be the number of repetitions required of a student’s articulation words.)
5. The student then eats each piece of food, or collects each token until Tom is reached and the group shouts “Don’t eat Tom!”

(The goal is to eat as many treats or collect as many tokens as possible before reaching Tom!)

Dinner Time!
This game can be used as a matching activity, Memory, Go Fish or a Collect Your Dinner Game.


What are Quick Lists?

Quick Lists are handy little lists that are magic for mixed groups all year. The small size (under 2" square) allows you to quickly and easily individualize any activity for each and every student. Choose the perfect Quick List for each student, cut it out and paste it on your favorite printable activity.

Quick lists are also terrific for baselining and progress monitoring. Each list has six words or questions.


Why are there 6 words/questions per Quick List?

You may provide instruction to establish the skill on the first stimulus item. Now you are ready to take data on the remaining 5 items, making it easy to get a percentage. Need more than 6 stimulus items? Just use 2 Quick Lists for your target! Complete the first quick list, then add another one on top.


Additional quick lists that work perfectly with this set are available for articulation and year-round language targets in my store here:
