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. Recognizing Emotions (24 cards) Read the emotion listed on the card and explain a time when you might feel this way. Identifying Social Problems and Solutions (24 cards) Read the social problem or solution card and create the opposite. ie: if you draw a solution card, think of a problem that would apply. Idioms (24 cards) Give a sentence or explain the meaning of the given idiom. Sarcasm (24 multiple choice) Use your tone of voice to say the phrase normally and sarcastically. Special Cards (12 included for each game) The idioms were our favorite part! Harvest Acres Expressive Language includes the following activities: Compare & Contrast (24 cards) Identifying features that are the same/different for the listed items. Retelling Familiar Sequences (18 cards) Tell the steps in sequence to complete the given task Generating WH questions (48 cards) Develop a WH question, that will match the answer given on the card Attributes (24 cards) 1Read the attributes and name the listed item or name attributes for the item Multiple Meaning Words (24 multiple choice) Name two different meanings for the given word.

This could target several of the goals my kiddos are working on.
I would love this to target many skills and goals within my groups!
I’ve been looking for a great fall pack that will target several goals.

My kiddos would love this. Endless ways of using.

I would love this to work with my language students.
I love fall activities, and this is a wonderful idea!
Holy cow… I spend about 50% of my time working with a 3rd-6th grade self-contained unit and these games would cover ALMOST every single goal those cute kiddos have on their IEPs. They’re perfect. 🙂
These all would be fantastic for about 80% of my caseload. I have a lot of students working in social thinking skills. I love that the activities make them think beyond the surface level. So many opportunities for the students to learn how to ask questions!! Love them all
Great activity! I could use this a lot in the clinic.
Looks like a great fall activity!
I NEED therapy materials for my 2 schools & this looks fun!
This would be so wonderful to have!!!
I would love this because I’m a brand new SLP in my CF and the materials left behind by the previous SLP in my position are all pretty ancient and pretty sparse! New, diverse materials are much needed!
Andy and Emily says
I am an SLP on a therapy ranch and this would be be so perfect for us!
This would be wonderful to use with almost all of my students. Most of them have a grammar goal right now. I am always looking for new/fun materials for them and me to keep us all engaged and learning.
Always something fun from you!! Can’t wait to win! 🙂
Jordan Bubis says
I love how it uses the same theme to target at least one goal for each kid! Great way for them to work together during a session. It is s great that you can use it with all different ages too! So creative! I would love to use this with my friends- I think it would be really motivating for them and I think they would really enjoy it! Thanks for sharing and the giveaway opportunity! 🙂
This would be great to use with my language kiddos when working on grammar!
Emily B. says
This looks like a great way to target so many different goals for my kids!
