I competed in an Olympic event today. First I put on leggings and boots. Then I drove to CVS. I purchased saltines, popsicles, rolls, gatorade (purple only please), eggs, 4 cans of soup, and 3 different types of medicine. I was forced to talk two two different people. Much like an Olympic athlete, once I got reached the finish line (the top of my apartment stairs) I fell to the ground in exhaustion. I would have sworn that it FELT like a Olympic event…. because when you have the flu… leaving the couch is SO MUCH WORK. Ugh. But once I rehydrated and replenished my electrolytes and took a nap I was feeling about 238523498 times better. I’m still on the mend but bored enough to open my computer to publish the Winter Sports activities I have been working on. Can we talk about how much I love the Olympics? It all begin with a little floor routine by Dominique Moceanu and a Keri Strugg vault in Atlanta in 1996 when I was 10 years old. I big time love it! Mostly during the winter Olympics I like to watch the snowboard/skiing events. Bobsleigh, alpine skiing, curling, figure skating, ice hockey, luge, snowboard, or ski jumping. Which of these is your favorite to watch? So I’ve got two things for you and your student’s to use in preparation for the Olympics this February! First a product that is kinda a ‘one-pot-wonder’ of language activities I’m using the most right now, plus a freebie you can use with everybody. This activity packet includes 4 activities (2 games with medals, two matching games) to be use in small group for speech therapy, intervention, ELA small group, or ESL classes. I picked 4 of my most common language goals and made activities for them. Most of my other students will participate my playing along with these games while working on fluency or articulation at the same time. Multiple Meaning Words: Pull a card and name two meanings for the word. Keep all cards. The student with the most gold medal cards at the end of the game wins. Pages 3-10. WH Questions: Pull a card and answer the WH question. Keep all cards. The student with the most gold medal cards at the end of the game wins. Pages 11-14. Vocabulary Matchup: The student should match the vocabulary word and the card with its definition. Pages 15-18. Irregular Verb Matchup: The student should match the irregular past tense card to the present tense match. Pages 19-24. All the cards have a winter sports theme. Medal cards are included in the two games and little torches are on each card! The download is 25 pages in length. If you have any questions please ask before you purchase! You can find it in my TpT Store here. The freebie is 10 pages long! Dot pages are great reinforcers for a multitude of activities in your speech room or classroom. Pair these pages with DO-A-DOT markers with sponge tips. Have students practice a certain number of trials of the intervention task. Then let them cover the dot page! If you don’t have DO-A-DOT markers color the dots as you go. Want the pages the last for many sessions? Laminate them and have the students cover with bingo chips! Grab the freebie in my TpT Store! That’s the same place you can find my new language winter games activity! If you’d like to win a free copy, just enter using Rafflecopter below. a Rafflecopter giveaway
