Chipper Chat & WH Questions = Better Attention?

One of the first (and favorite) TPT items that I've created is the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN questions with visuals.  I was using these cards the other day in a therapy session with a student whose attention span sometimes impacts his ability to answer questions. Suddenly, I got the idea to haul out the chipper chat chips and the wand. I put a chip on each answer choice like this:

I told him to pick up the chip that was on the answer. IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM! He was instantly engaged and his accuracy went up. Something about that "magic wand" gets kids so excited!

How do YOU use those lovable magnetic chips and wand in your therapy room?


  1. I can't take credit for this idea (one of my kids can)... we use the magnetic chips when we play Bingo! :)

  2. Love this idea! I have these cards, just need to cut and laminate. I see this activity happening in my speech room very soon!!
