Barrier games require
students to interact and use language to complete a task by giving and receiving
instructions. Barrier Games promote listening and speaking, and help to
strengthen your students' semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic
language skills. Other language skills addressed include auditory
processing, following directions, understanding & using spatial concepts,
requesting clarification, and describing skills. You can also use barrier games
to target articulation, voice, and fluency skill!
includes a game board and several game pieces (print as many as needed!).
The object of these
games is to create matching picture scenes by following the directions given
(i.e. put the orange starfish with water around it in the water). Directions can
be as simple or as complex as needed. There are several similar game pieces, so
students must give detailed descriptions to ensure the correct piece is chosen.
These games can be
used with a small group of students, it is not limited to just a group of 2.
