Shark Lingo ~ Speech Therapy Game Companion for ANY Shark Game
Shark Lingo ~ Speech Therapy Game Companion for ANY Shark Game
This download comes with the original Shaking Shark Game mats PLUS bonus generic mats to use with ANY shark game (in color and black & white). Need articulation mats too? Scroll down on the bottom right side of this listing to see the bundle.
I originally created this resource to go with the shaking shark game. I was alerted by a user that this game is really hard to find and that there are other great shark games that she would like to use this resource with. I added a generic set of shark mats for this purpose! When you purchase this resource, you will get it all! These mats are also great to use with mini shark toys or play dough!
It is a commonly known fact that speech therapists use popular board games to make therapy fun for their students. I looked at all of my games and decided that I needed a way to make playing them more directly therapeutic! This is how all of my game companions were born! I hope you enjoy this latest edition! (Please note: the game is not included, must be purchased separately).
What's Included In the original shaking shark game companion pack:
• Categories: There are three types of category mats included: Name items in a Category, Name the Category, & Which One Doesn’t Belong (I have my students tell how the other two items are alike)
• Compare/Contrast: The student is prompted to tell how two items are the same (alike) and how they are different. There are pictures as visual aids on the mats.
• WH-Questions: There are separate mats for what, where, when, who, why, and how questions. There is also a mat for mixed wh-questions. The student is prompted to answer basic, functional wh-questions.
• Vocabulary: These mats give a definition or description and the student has to name the vocabulary word. Please note, I used functional vocabulary words.
• Associations: The student has to fill in the missing word to an association close phrase “a shoe goes with a _____” I take any logical association (answers may vary among students).
• Antonyms: The student is asked to name the antonym of the given word/picture.
• Synonyms: The student is asked to name the synonym of the given word/picture.
• Regular Plurals: The student is shown the singular picture and then a plural picture and prompted to fill in the close phrase with the regular plural. (Here is one ___, here are three___).
• Fix the Sentence- Sentence Absurdities: Read the sentence to the student (or have them read it out loud). Prompt the student to change the sentence so it makes sense.
• Multiple Meaning Words: The student is prompted to name two meanings of the given word.
• Blank mat to write you own targets on!
What's Included in the new generic game companion pack that can go with ANY shark game (or shark toys).
Categories, associations, wh-questions, compare/contrast, guess the word, defining, antonyms, synonyms, multiple meaning words, plurals, past tense, -ing verbs, and idioms. There are two mats per skill area. I also included four open-ended mats to use with any goal (color and black & white).
Assembly: Print and go! You can laminate the boards or place them in page protectors for durability.
To use: Set up the game as directed. As the students get items out of the Shark’s mouth, place them on the mat over a shark and practice the target skill. Keep going until the mat is full or the game is finished.
