There is not much to explain because the activity features SOOO many activities that target many different goals! I love being able to purchase one thing and use it with all of my groups for the day. This activity can be transformed into an expressive task so easily too. I had played it where I picked a card and did the 1 step direction or 2 step direction and had my students verbalize what I was doing! I made it a sequencing task as well.
The inferencing portion was amazing because so many of my students have trouble with abstract thinking and I was glad to have something I could pull out of my pocket to target this area.
I liked the listening comprehension activity best because all of my students are in need of this area!
The WH questions I used as a receptive and expressive language task. I just LOVE when an activity is moldable into another activity that I can use. SO even though this activity targets receptive language it is EASILY transformed into an expressive language activity too!
Overall I recommend this activity and I think it would be a great addition to your speech rooms because it was a great addition to mine! I really liked how there were posters to explain what an inference was or how to make a prediction. This helped a lot when teaching this area to my students. I always try to use a multi-modality approach to teaching my students, so this helped me out tons!
