Halloween is such a fun holiday! There are costumes, parties, and candy, what could be better? Even though Halloween is a day of fun and tricks (and treats) it can be difficult for students with pragmatic deficits. This activity is great for Halloween pragmatics.
This activity has cards pragmatic responses and figurative language. The pragmatic response give students and setting and a situation that they may find frustrating. They are then asked how they should respond to the situation.
These also provide a good opportunity how they would like to respond and what the expected social response is.
Next, there are figurative language with a Halloween theme. Students are given a figurative language phrase and the phrase used in a sentence. It is their job to state what the phrase means. There is an included sheet of the phrases and their meanings.
As students answer their cards they may add their spooky ingredients to their cauldron.
