Superhero Emotions Activity and a VDAY {FREEBIE}

Happy Friday!  I am hoping the blizzard doesn't hit us too hard!  I hope you are all safe tonight!!!  Since I am stuck at home tonight, I want to post about my two newest activities....

Superhero Emotions Activity {Listening & Identifying/Expressing Emotions}

I have used various "superhero" type graphics in several of my activities.  My students absolutely love them!!!  This first activity includes 81 game cards and has been created to target listening skills and identifying/expressing emotions.

Game board
Emotion “choice” board
Numbered emotion board
2 Sets of number cards: 1 to 12
Set 1: 45 cards with targeted emotional phrases 
Set 2: 36 cards with phrases to be read with various emotional inflections.

How to play:
Set 1: Place the emotion “choice” board in the center of the table. All game cards should be placed in a pile. Students take turns choosing the top card from the pile and read or listen to the phrase. Once the appropriate emotion is named, the student rolls the dice and moves on the game board. 
Set 2: Place the numbered emotion board in the center of the table. Emotion game cards and number cards should be placed in face down and side by side in separate piles. Each student will choose an emotion card and a number card. He/she will locate the emotion that matches the number and read the phrase in a tone of voice that matches the targeted emotion. The first student to raise his/her hand or buzz in and guess the emotion correctly, gets the card! The student with the most cards wins!

Valentine’s Day Vocabulary Matching {FREEBIE}

This freebie can be used with students to work on identifying vocabulary words and meanings while having fun!

18 Valentine’s Day vocabulary words
18 Valentine’s Day themed vocabulary word meanings
6 wild cards
4 “Candy boxes” 

How to play:

This game was created to be played as a matching game. Vocabulary words and meaning cards should be separated and placed face down. Students take turns choosing cards and try to match the word to the correct meaning. When a word and meaning are correctly matched, the student will collect the matches on their own “candy box”. The student to make the most matches wins the game! If students choose a wild card, they must put back a set of matches!

Here are the links for BOTH activities....

Hope you all enjoy!!!!

  1. I just became a follower this week! I think these activities are awesome. I would love to have activities to help with Social Skills with my little ones that are learning to play with others and communicate during play.

  2. i love both of these activities, i can use sentence structure activities, or activities that target specific parts of speech

  3. Love all your materials! I'd love to see more of the thematic/holiday/seasonal activities for artic and lang. Also lower level social skills as I see mostly pre-k age.

  4. Super hero theme is a hit with my students with ASD! Love the pack! Could really use some fun materials/activities where my gr 3 and 4 students with language processing difficulties can practice their self-advocacy strategies of requesting clarification or explanation to follow directions or respond to Q's. Even something that makes them differentiate between whether they need to request a repetition or clarification/explanation would be amazing!!!

  5. Great Packet! would love some spring themed language and artic packs or even something to target phonological processes. Or maybe something to accompany some store bought games since those are really popular reinforcers for my younger group!

  6. I love the superhero them as well. Always need pragmatic language and auditory processing.

  7. These are so cool! I'd love to see more middle school language activities for vocabulary building and social skills.

  8. This is really cute! A lot of my kids don't know how to "read" emotions in people. Thank you.

  9. Wow, I love both of these products you made! I like how you make packets that target multiple goals. I know you have a number of social skills packets, but I am always using them and can always add more, particularly with the older student in mind. Thanks!!

  10. Awesome emotion packet :) I would like to see more sentence structure and vocabulary activities. Thanks so much.

  11. I die every time you come up with something new! I love love your materials. I know I keep telling you but it is true. :D

    I am always looking for problem solving packets as well as any packets that can be used for mixed language/speech groups.

  12. Heather S. you are the winner! Thanks everyone for your comments!!!
