Where Questions Game Speech and Language Activities
This game is great for children working on where questions. Point out a picture on the folder to your child and ask the question. Help your child find the correct answer based on his or her level: Level 1: Show your child two possible answers and have him pick the right one and place it next to the question. Level 2: Show your child three or four possible answers. Level 3: Ask your child the question and allow her to see the picture (from the question) but do not show her any of the possible answers. See if she can come up with it on her own. When she does, hand her the answer and let her Velcro it on Level 4: Ask your child the question without using any visuals (put the folder away). Do this during conversation/play or while playing a structured game (such as, your child must an-swer a question before each turn). These pictures are also great for working on other types of questions, such as function questions (What do you do with a boot?).
For younger children who aren’t yet able to answer questions, work on simple associations by matching the objects together (Ex: shoe, foot). You can use paper or other folders to cover up all but one picture to make it easier to see. You can help your child make the matches if she’s having trouble. Then, fade your cues until your child is able to make the associations on her own.
Use these associations to work on following directions by asking your child to match the objects in a certain order. Start with two-steps and work your way up. For example, you could say “first put on the foot, then put on the tree.”
There are many great vocabulary words in this game. You can work on them receptively (“point to the shirt”) or expressively (“What’s this?”).
Use this game to work on concepts such as “next to” (put it next to the shirt) and “beside”.
In/On: You can work on proper use of “in” and “on” with the answers to these questions. For ex-ample, your clothes go in the washer and your boot goes on your foot.
