Since many of you will be back at school during what is technically the summer, I created a summer-inspired activity! You can use it as a barrier game (*see below if you're unfamiliar with the concept of barrier games), or as a simple following directions activity ("Put the girl with the purple swimsuit in the pool"). You could also use the pictures as a prompt for a "what I did during my summer vacation" conversation.

Barrier games are great for listening comprehension and expressive language. You can play one on one with one of your students, have 2 students play, or have 2 teams of students play. For a barrier game, you will want two copies each of the background scene and the game pieces (one for each player/team). You may want to laminate the background scene and game pieces for durability. Cut out the game pieces.
