TPT product switcheroo: Queen's Speech's What Am I: School Edition.

This week Rachel from The Queen's Speech and I switched products.  I got to review her What Am I: School Edition product and she reviewed my Stoplight Emotions packet.



I use riddles a lot in therapy and am always looking for new materials to address this.  Riddles work on inferencing, receptive language and building vocabulary skills.

Receptive Language
What Am I-School Edition contains 24 Riddle Cards with a School Theme.  Each riddle card has three different clues listed with the answer.  The illustrations are colorful and clearly represent the objects beting described.

Expressive Language/Vocabulary
The second part of this product has the students make up their own riddles.  Queen's Speech includes 24 vocabulary pictures and 24 cue cards for riddles. I think the cue cards are really helpful since a lot of my clients can't think of how to describe objects.  The cues stay the same on each card so with repetitions, nonreaders should begin to do this independently as well.







Sorting Mat:  
I think maps such as these are really helpful as a graphic organizer to help clients internalize how to describe objects.  Take the red cards and put them in the middle.  Then use the vocabulary map to help the students describe the object.


Bingo Cards:
Bingo cards are always a big hit with the kids.  This download contains 5 different Bingo cards.  Play a game of traditional bingo or you can hide the red cards around the room and have your clients check off each picture as you find them.


What am I: School Edition is a fun product from the Queen's Speech.  The pictures are colorful and clear and the activities are fun and motivating.   It's a STEAL at 1.75 and perfect for a back to school activity.  You call follow the Queen's Speech here:  


The Queen's Speech and I have TEAMED up with a giveway of each of these products.  Go to HER web page to sign up to win a copy of What am I: School Edition.

Getting to know you activities and review of their summer

Anne said...

I like getting to know you activities - not only do I find out what motivates my kids, but I learn so much about their current level of skills (i.e. how much they lost over the summer! eep!).

I like to really get to know the kids and make them feel comfortable in therapy by letting them get to know me too! I typically use summer and school based activities to help them ease the transition back to school!

I like to discuss what we all did over the summer. We talk, write and draw about what we did.

The first week of school I am trying to get my schedule together and help with kindergarten screening. However, when I start with the kiddos, I like to do "get to know you" activities.
