Back to School Week: Open Ended Wormy Apples Game

If you're like me, you probably spend a good chunk of the start of the year collecting baseline data.  If you missed my post on some of my favorite activities for collecting baseline data, you can see it here.  Chances are, you have lots of kids with lots of different objectives - often within the same group!  Well, this may be just the thing for you!

Today's freebie is an open ended game that can be used for just about anything!  Essentially, there are cards with either good apples:

Or wormy apples:

Directions:  Download the PDF, print on cardstock, cut out and laminate.  Place cards face-down on table.  Have students complete a speech/language task (e.g., saying a target word, answering a question, formulating a sentence, etc.).  Once students complete a task, they can pick a card.  If they get an apple, they can keep it.  If they get a wormy apple, they need to return all of their cards to the center.  The student with the most apples at the end of the game is the winner!  Simple, yet more motivating than straight-up data collection! 

You can download a copy of the game here.

Come back tomorrow for a school related app review!
