Do your students LOVE Frozen? Are you a traveling SLP? If you said yes to these questions, then you need to grab the latest Spot It Game because it has my favorite character, Olaf! Blue Orange Games makes wonderful games that I love using in therapy with my students. Today, I wanted to show you some ways that you can use this spot it game in therapy! Spot It is a great game on it’s own as there are three different ways to play. One of my favorite features of these games is that they can easily fit in your purse or bag for easy transport from school to school.
Grab this game on on Amazon (affiliate link included for your convenience) or on Blue Orange Game’s website.
You can use this game in your social skill groups to work on expected vs. unexpected behaviors for winning/losing, complimenting the winner, identifying the size of the problem, whole body listening and regulating emotions during the game.
The stimulus cards have great pictures to work on building vocabulary while talking about the items attributes. Receptively, you can lay out 5-10 cards and say find something that is “round”. Students look through the cards and when they find something, they can yell “spot it” or slap with their hand. They can keep the card that they find! This is also great to use with a beach/summer theme.
I love that this game goes quick, so it is the perfect game for incentives and rewards! If my articulation students work really hard for most of the session, I will allow 5 minutes at the end of the session to play Spot it. We just play, no drill happens during that time if they did all their work. It’s too complicated trying to fit in practice with this fast paced game!
Use the cards to have students create compound and complex sentences with conjunctions, adjectives and prepositional phrases. Make it a challenge to see if they can include at least three of the images on a card such as “The honey bee buzzed around the orange umbrella.”
