The month of October is just not long enough for all the cute, fun games and activities I want to do with my kiddos! I sometimes pull out different games for groups just so I can play the all the ones I like!! I look at it as a perk of being the speecher.
This week I want to show you some of the Halloween games I’ve made and link to some fun, fall and Halloween themed games that my fellow SLPs and teachers have created. So let’s get going!
This first one is called “Trick-or-Treat Inferences” and it’s available in The BonBonSpeecher Store at Teachers Notebook or Teachers Pay Teachers. It’s designed to target inferencing skills, vocabulary, categorization, turn taking and reasoning and deduction skills.
The product includes one page of card backing that looks like this:
There are four “Trick” card and four “Treat” cards to accompany the 28 clue cards. Clue cards describe iconic Halloween characters and popular Halloween candies.
Game play instructions are part of the download as well, and there’s a cute points card that can be printed, downloaded to an iPad, or projected onto a SmartBoard in the classroom. Kids will love guessing at the clues and won’t even realize they’re targeting goals!
Here’s how you play:
Each player gets one guess per clue. The teacher reads the first clue on the clue card to students.
If a player guesses correctly after one clue, 3 points are awarded and the student keeps the card. If no one guesses correctly, play continues with the point value decreasing to 2 points and so on. If no one guesses correctly after all clues are read, the teacher keeps the card.
“Trick” cards take away one clue from the following card – the following card will be worth only 2 points max.
“Treat” cards allow all clues from the following card to be read at once – card is still worth 3 points.
The player with the most points at the end of game time is Trick-or-Treater of the Day!
I’m planning to use this set from Speech Room News with my preschoolers.
They loved the version for “There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves” so I know they’ll be excited to see this one for Halloween. You can visit Jenna’s page to get more info on this amazing Book Companion Pack.
