Love It and List It Linky: Vocabulary Activities

Disclaimer: Affiliate links are included in this post for your convenience.

This month, Jenna Rayburn's Love It and List It Linky features vocabulary activities. Check out her post here.

Here's what I use on a pretty regular basis:

1. Books: This is a no-brainer. I like to use books to discuss new vocabulary! It's quick and can quickly generate conversations in small groups, as the students discuss what they know and hear what others have to say.

2. Super Duper Sentence Building Fun Deck: These pictures are actually designed for sentence building, but I found that the pictures are pretty "busy" which leaves a great opportunity for discussing different vocabulary words (nouns, adjectives, etc). Some of my students really need visual pictures, so this is great.

3. Learning Games For Kids website: This website has a multitude of vocabulary games, including synonyms, antonyms, and homophones.

4. Teachers Pay Teachers activities: My fellow SLPs are enormously talented and creative, so why not use some of theirs and some of mine? Below are my favorites:

Out of This World Context Clues from Carrie's Speech Corner
Bug Out: A Multiple Meaning Word Activity from Let's Talk Speech Therapy
Secret Word from Sublime Speech
Don't Say It Describing Dash and Mirror-SYNANT are some of my most used products from my store 


  1. I've never tried that Fun Deck! Looks good! Thanks for linking up!


  2. Have the fun deck though I never really thought about using it for vocab. Thanks for the re-purposing idea :)
