Bingo! – Comparing Concepts/Comparatives and Superlatives

This bingo game includes lots of comparatives and superlatives and is a great activity to help improve comparing concepts!

If you enjoy this free Bingo game, please consider trying some of the other VERY affordable Bingo games from my Language Galore Teachers Pay Teachers site.

The game has five “boards” (although you can use regular paper if you want), and two pages of stimulus cards – 32 total cards. Use small bits of paper, coins, or just about anything for tokens. Total prep time should be just a couple of minutes to print the boards and cards and cut out the cards.

Comprehension Pages – Conjunctions

These conjunction printables are generally easier toward the left, and more complex toward the right.  They could be laminated, cut into strips, or used as worksheets for lots of conjunction practice.

Comprehension Pages – Location Concepts / Prepositions

There are many, many location concepts and/or prepositions on these pages…generally the first ones are easier, and the last ones are more difficult.  Feel free to laminate them, use them as worksheets, or they could be cut up into small cards.

A Quick and Handy Guide to Autism Interventions

It seems like every time I think I have a basic familiarity with almost all of the autism interventions out there, somebody comes up with one I hadn’t heard of before.  So, I thought it might be nice to have a reference list to quickly look up some, and also to compare and contrast different ones.  There are a lot.  And, my sense is that in ten years half of these will have been replaced.  For more on my take on these, please visit my other blog, The Language Fix.
