Halloween Pocket Charts (FREE)

Here is another great FREE Halloween app that is great for speech therapy.  This app is called Pocket Charts! Halloween Matching Game. This app is great for similarities and differences.  The student needs to discriminate between two possible pictures that match the picture in the pocket.  Some of the pictures are easier than others but they are all a great way to work on noticing similarities and differences and talking about them as well.  I also think this is a great activity for teaching the motor skill of "dragging" an object to another place on the screen.  I had my student locate the picture and then tell me why it was the correct choice before they moved the picture to the pocket line.  If you are able to project you iPad onto a screen or whiteboard, this would also be a fun larger group activity.
