The game is played like the traditional Spot it! games. There are different variations on how to play, but basically you have to find a match with one of the items on the cards. There is always one card that has at least one item. My son and I play where we each get one card and then put the rest of the deck face up. Whoever spots an item on our card that matches something in the top pile, yells the word and gets to collect the cards. Once all the cards are gone from the pile, whoever has the most cards wins. This game is an amazing tool to work on executive functioning skills while having fun! This helps with focus/attention, processing speed, impulse control and visual perception. This also teaches letter identification and matching skills.
How I would use in therapy:
- I would use this as a reinforcer for the end of therapy. It is a quick game that can be played in 2-5 minutes.
- The students needs to be able to identify their letters and know the items on the cards, so I would review these items in therapy and work on attributes for describing the words. Then, we would play the game!
- Before we played the game, I would use the characters from the movie Frozen and we would do a compare/contrast venn diagram. The kids could explain who their favorite character was from the movie and why. We could even do a little writing activity. At the end of the activity, we would get to play the game!
- For those little ones that aren’t there yet with knowing all their letters, I would use the cards to have them work on basic sentence structures such as “I see ____”.
- I would target basic concepts above, below, next to, and beside having the students find items with the basic concept words.
