Sometimes we need something different to spice our speech sessions.  So, when I saw this on Pinterest I had to try it in my speech room!


All you need is a white crayon, white paper, watercolors, and brushes.  I borrowed the watercolors and brushes from the fabulous art teacher at my school.


On the paper, I wrote down words that students would have to give a synonym or antonym for, or define.  I also wrote down describing words that as the students uncovered, they had to identify what object was being described.

Other Ideas

– You could write down words with the sound they are working on. As they uncover the word they have to say it X number of times.

– If you use the Social Thinking curriculum you could write down clues about a certain Unthinkable and as students uncover the clues they can state what Unthinkable it is and then list ways to ‘defeat’ them.

Some Tips

Make sure not to push to hard, as you will be able to see the word and the surprise with be ruined.  To kick it up a notch, you can use di-cuts and have some fun shapes to write the words on. Then after the words have been revealed they can glue their colorful shapes onto a page.


I would love to see pictures of how your students’ pictures turn out 🙂
