I have been working hard on this next activity pack! I listen to the poll results and you have requested wh- materials. Introducing, Dino Dash! Graphics were purchased from KPM Doodles.
One strategy I use in my therapy room is teaching students that each type of question form answers a certain type of question. I use visuals from various websites that help illustrate this strategy. I believe it is very important to provide visuals to assist speech and language students. To practice this skill, I created a sorting activity. Students sort the answers to questions with the dinosaurs that have the various question forms. You can leave the sorting page as is and laminate. You can also cut it apart and place across a table to allow moving around. How to sort:
- who: people
- what: things and descriptions
- where: places
- when: time, date, seasons
Now it is practice time! Students can play the board game I created using the dino theme. Play as you see fit but I like to play: provide question, answer correctly, roll dice or spin spinner. If incorrect, provide assistance then can still make a move. All you would have to do is print and laminate. Grab game pawns and dice/spinner.
As you can tell, I only used “who” “what” “where” and “when” for those two activities. I left “why” separate because it is the most difficult and hardest to work on. Students must understand cause/effect and have the vocabulary in order to respond. I created a visual which I included in this activity pack. It illustrates what the response should tell and the words used in the answer.
After the visual, there are “why” question cards to use with any motivating game/activity to practice responding.
All you have to do is print and laminate the visual. Then it is ready to hang while working on “why” questions. Print and laminate game cards and grab your favorite game: Jenga, CandyLand, Chutes and Ladders, Connect 4, Jeopardy, Trouble, and MANY more!
