I have a freebie for you guys today! I got some adorable clip art with stars from From the Pond and I couldn’t resist making something real quick. I really like quick and easy board games that can be used to end a session and reinforce a skill that we have been working on. And I like making them! So today I wanted to target similes and a star was born…
All you have to do is roll a dice and move your game piece along the board to finish each statement to make a simile. I would use a die that only rolls up to 3 so that you get more practice. Obviously you are working on similes, but this is also good to target adjectives and describing, as well as the articles “a” and “an”. I left them off the sentence stims just for that reason.
My fellow blogger, Courtney Decker, had a great idea for a sorting mat as an independent activity…so I added a little bit to that and created this!
All you have to do is cut out the answer stars and students can match them to the mat to create the correct simile.
Also, a worksheet that could also be an independent activity or carryover/homework. They can use it to record the answer they get with the sorting mat, or you can have them come up with their own answers. There is also the opportunity for the students to write 2 of their own similes!
I hope you can use this in your therapy room! You can download it for free in my TPT Store. If you download, please leave me a comment!
