|This is my slightly adapted Candyland gameboard. I have added arrows on the board to try to help the students remember which way they are supposed to go. I have cards for each student that say "please wait" and then there is one "my turn" card that rotates around the board for each students' turn. They can practice passing the picture to their peers and also practice speech by using words such as "Here______" or "your turn."|
I also have begun to use a two sided container for the cards to help organize them as well as making it easier for me to pass the pile around the table to the student whose turn it is. One side says "to do" and one side says "finished." The words aren't exactly what I would make specifically for this game, but I use the containers for another student's work system at times.
|I use small pictures of each student to identify which piece belongs to them. With the classroom games, I have a piece of velcro on the game pieces and then small pictures that I can attach to each one.|
|This is one side of the communication board that the speech therapist made to go with our game. This way the students can comment on the cards that they draw and make the game a speech activity as well. (I typically don't use the character cards in the game because it takes too long to get through the game when the players go backwards)|
|This is the other side of the communication board (I have several, so some groups have access to both sides at once). This side includes more advanced commenting visuals, such as "pass a card," and "pick a card."|
