Barnyard Bingo

Games are a fun way to provide structure to language development. You can take any game and make it as simple or complex as you wish, depending on the goals that you have set up for the child. Don’t think so much about teaching the “rules of the game”, but more about the language and social skills you’re looking to target.


Here is a list of some skills that games can target:

*Building vocabulary

*Following directions

*Taking turns

*Asking and answering questions


*Planning and problem solving

*Improving memory and cognition

*Critical reasoning

*Social language

*Developing competitiveness
