Speech Shopping Fun!

Everyday, our class splits into two different speech groups - sorted on abilities. Our higher level group needed a new fun game this term so I created this wonderful shopping game - they absolutely LOVE it! It's been a huge hit and there are so many different learning opportunities included, plus getting them used to the names of different foods!

This game comes complete with everything you need to play, just simply print, cut and laminate and you're all set to go!

The game comes in 2 different difficulty levels to differentiate for students.

This is a great game to include in your speech sessions or even 1:1 sessions. It will encourage students to pay attention to detail, follow instructions, recognise different foods/drinks and be able to match them to their instructions. It also encourages wider use of vocabulary and sentence structure as well as working towards life skills.

First, you hand students their individual trolley and choose a shopping list. Then lay out the cards across the table and have students try to find the items from their shopping list and add them to their shopping trolley.

The students have so much fun, they don't even realise they're still learning! It's also a great way to prepare students for shopping visits, improve upon their life skills and to follow instructions/a list.

  1. I love this idea! Especially how it relates to skills used in everyday life :) I do something similar in my room but more towards writing. After reading this, I'm going to extend my activity to include more talking :)

  2. I love this idea! We do a lot of shopping trips with my class and this would be a great preparation activity or even a summary activity after the trip!
