I had such a great response during the spring for Carrotville. I wanted to make a similar activity for fall. Enter… Harvest Acres. Smile if this made you think of Green Acres, Oliver, and LIsa Harvest Acres comes in 3 different versions. Social, Language, and Grammar. The Harvest Acres activities target a wide variety of skills. They are perfect for mixed groups because they are interchangeable! There are two major ways to play. Game 1: Carryover. Play with all types of language cards. Start the game on ‘start’. When you land on a space, check the location (barn , orchard, etc.). Answer the corresponding type of question (ie: if you land on the orchard, answer a compare/contrast question.) If you answer correctly, stay on the new space. If you answer incorrectly, go back to your last space. Game 2: Specific Skill Practice. Play with only one type of language card (or one card type per student). The student should move around the board. answering the predetermined type of questions. If they answer correctly, use the game points card to determine how many points the student has earned. You can track these points on the included, ‘My Game Points’ card. Each set sells for $6.00 in my TpT Store. Here is a sneak peek: Harvest Acres Social Language Expected/Unexpected Behavior (24 cards) Identifying an example of each for the given situation.
