Here's a simple homemade game just in time for Easter, which means it involves chocolate ... All you need is a large piece of cardboard, vocabulary cards with pictures or a series of objects, and small squares of packing cardboard to make the bunnies, as well as dice and carrots for the bunnies (or chocolate). Draw the game board as shown in the first picture below, and place the cards on the squares, as in the second picture below. Before you start rolling the dice, however, do the following:
1. make sure to have each child color code their bunny before you start.
2. elicit the vocabulary, for example by asking: What do you see? (I see ...)
In order to move to the next square, each child will have to say a full sentence involving the word depicted on the square on which they land.
Note: Placing cards on the squares rather than drawing pictures directly on the board allows you to exchange them as you go.
