List of directions to give with each scene (targeting concepts below)
– Vocabulary: e.g. Put the dog on the grass.
– Adjectives: e.g. colors, size
– Spatial concepts: e.g. on, in, under, below, next to, between
– Following multi-step directions
– Sequential directions: e.g. Before you put the chicken on the barn, put the cat behind the fence.
– Social skills: e.g. Making eye contact to give/receive instructions and asking questions to clarify instructions.
How to play:
Laminate the scenes and pieces for each scene.
Give everyone playing a scene and set of pieces. Set up a barrier between players (e.g. file folder). One person (clinician or student) arranges all their pieces on the scene and then gives directions to other player(s) on where to place the items. The purpose of the game is to have matching scenes at the end.
You can put sticky tack on each piece so it will stick to the scene – or simply just place on the scene. Barrier games are also commonly played on a magnetic surface. You can play on cookie sheets and place pieces on a thin, sticky magnet if you wish.
