Winter season is officially here and I have created an add-on activity to my already popular Winter Wonderland Social Pragmatics Pack. So many of you ALREADY own this product of mine, so I thought I would upload a new snowball conversation game to the pack as a “thank you” for all your support. Your support has kept me smiling and enjoying what I do everyday!
The object of the game is to be the player to collect the most snowballs that have an “asked a question” or a “made a comment” on them. Print a snowball tower for each student in the group and all the game card sheets on cardstock and laminate for durability.
There are snowball penalty cards for having a “Brain Freeze” when a student doesn’t have their brain in the group, for a “snowball interruption” and for melting a snowball because you are talking TOO much! Every year, I seem to have a kid that does one or all of these things during group conversation.
If you already own this pack, go back and re-download my product to grab this fun conversation game on my TPT store! If you haven’t purchased this pack, check out my previous post to see what other activities are included.
When a student asks a question, you give them a question snowball to add to their snowball tower. Same for if someone makes a comment. \They either have to remove the snowball or take a snowball off their tower when they interrupt, have their brain out of the group and/or talk TOO much (I could get this card every once in a while). The person to get the most question and comment snowballs on their tower wins!
Do you have any little speechies that get frustrated easily or need to have “cool down” breaks when things don’t go their way? I find that my students on the autism spectrum and/or students with emotional regulation difficulties respond really well to visual posters when needing to “chill out”.
I made these behavior management visuals that you can print out on cardstock and laminate for durability. Find a place in your therapy room or classroom that can be the “chill out” spot. I put a bean bag chair in a corner of my room with a visual poster with “calm down”, so the student knows the designated area. The student can either bring you the “chill out” card or you can give it to the student if they cannot regulate their emotions independently. I included a black and white version too! Grab my “Chill Out” visuals on my TPT store!
