Here's my newest language activity that can be used with both adults and kids! I used this during a language session at the Aphasia Center and focused on age-appropriate categories.
It's your basic Wheel-of-Fortune format, except I used a chalk board -- and had a makeshift Vanna. I provided everyone with a category (i.e., vacation spots, european cities) and then drew out a box for each letter. The clients found it helpful to have the number of boxes written above, so that was presented as well. I had the clients "spin" my homemade wheel (download it HERE) and then either guess a letter, solve, or ask for clues. I wrote down each "clue" on the board, as well as answers that were not correct. This visual helped them to rule out other answers that may not have worked.
This activity spanned the levels of communication in the group from severe to mild aphasia. Each person was able to participate, and the clients helped each other out! Try it out!
