Thanksgiving Expressive Language

Kids love it when you incorporate holidays into therapy! Don't we all love a reason to celebrate?! It's fun and puts a new twist on the same skills you're addressing day after day. My kids got a kick out of my Halloween language packets, so I had to create Thanksgiving versions too!

Thanksgiving Expressive Language
This packet addresses a wide range of expressive language skills! It's full of colorful card games and NO PREP materials!

Comparing/Contrasting: Students draw a card and discuss how the two items are alike and different. If they discover Plymouth Rock, they get an extra turn! Student with the most cards wins. This game also includes two mini posters that students can utilize during your therapy session!
Pronouns: As a primary-based SLP, I want to have as many pronoun resources as possible! Student draws a card and fills in the blank with the correct subjective pronoun (this game addresses: he, she, they, or it). If they find a special card, they'll get an extra turn! This game also includes two mini posters to provide students with visual cues.
Describing: Did I mention I now have an EET?! Oh.. I did? haha... I'm still so excited about it. I plan on using these cards in conjunction with the EET for some Thanksgiving flair. Students draw cards and describe them. I also included some special cards if you would like to make it a game! This also includes two mini posters for visual cues!
Irregular Plurals: Student draws a card and the SLP reads the singular sentence. Student must then make the same sentence plural. If they are correct, they get to keep the card. Watch out for special cards! The student with the most cards wins! Two mini posters that define singular and plural are also included!
NO PREP Materials: This product also contains a cornucopia of print n' go materials! They address everything from synonyms to topic maintenance! Here's a peek:
This packet is also part of a money saving bundle that can be found HERE. I'll be back soon to give you a peek into the Thanksgiving Receptive Language packet!

Thinking about Thanksgiving is making me hungry! I can't wait to gobble down some turkey and homemade macaroni & cheese! lol... Have a wonderful week! Gobble, gobble!
