Christmas makes a great theme for exploring new sights, sounds, scents, and vocabulary.
- Play with words through rhymes and songs
- Multisensory experiences (holiday scents, new textures, joyful sounds, peaceful sights)
- Opportunities for exposure to new games!
Board games bring family and friends together, especially during the holidays. The games in this package are designed to be adapted to the child’s needs so everyone can be included in the fun!
Note: These games are secular.
Playing the Christmas Board Games
As players land on each square, they explore new vocabulary (also known as “low-frequency” or “fringe words” for AAC users).
Mix and match the game cards to create new versions of the same game.
These games target:
- Reading and writing objectives for emergent readers and writers
- Word recognition
- Letter recognition (uppercase and lowercase)
- Movement objectives (players can walk or use their mobility aids to retrieve cards)
- Game boards (provided), printed (and laminated, optional)
- Game cards (provided), printed (and laminated, optional)
- Player tokens (from other game boards or handmade)
- Hook and loop dots (suggested for children requiring more stability with the game board, add dots to each of the board game squares and underneath player tokens)
- Die of the best size for the child (with dots or with numbers)
- The child’s communication methods or devices (including ASL, low- or high-tech AAC, etc.)
Included in the package:
- 4 sets of cards (image cards, word cards, lowercase letter cards, and uppercase letter cards)
- 4 board games plus 2 bonus boards (an image board, a word board, a lowercase letter board, an uppercase letter board, and two boards with predictable sentences)
