Monster Hunt is the perfect gross motor game for mixed groups and wiggle worms. Students love finding the monsters you’ve hidden around the room! Once they find a monster, they just match it to their goal page to practice their target. This speech and language activity is a low prep crowd pleaser that is easily adaptable for your caseload!

Do you have a new idea? DM me on Instagram so I can add it!
○ Hide the pictures in a sensory bin instead of around the room.
○ Target prepositions by hiding the pictures strategically.
○ Target prepositions and spatial concepts.
○ Target following directions. (“get the picture, bring it here, and put it on the table”)
○ Target vocabulary by placing the pictures in specific places (table, chair, etc)
○ Target descriptors by describing which picture you want the student to find- or have them describe it!
○ Have your students color their goal page while you’re working with another student in a mixed group.
○ Alternate between target pages to target multiple goals.
○ Use the articulation pages to work at sentence level. (“I found the X.”)
○ Print doubles of the pictures- hide one set and match it to the other. Skipping the goal pages can truly help *everyone* participate in this fun activity!
○ Practice following a point or gaze if the student needs help finding a zombie. This can be thought of as “thinking with their eyes.”
○ Use the blank target pages to target ANYTHING that isn’t covered in the included goal pages- and then email me at email@example.com so I can add it to the resource!
I recommend laminating the 10 themed pictures to keep and printing off goal pages as needed. I sometimes keep most-used goal pages on hand in page protectors as well. (i.e. K, G, R, S blends, L, L blends, C1V1C2V2, CVC, wh questions, pronouns, and categories).
Again, you can pull up goal pages on your computer or tablet if you want this to be no print!
