Cool in School® Board Game

Cool in School is a receptive and expressive language game that uses 144 full-color photos to teach basic and advanced communication skills that students use every day in twelve areas

  • Art Room
  • Cafeteria
  • Classroom
  • Computer Lab
  • Media Center
  • Music Room
  • Nurse’s Office
  • Office
  • Physical Education
  • Playground
  • Restroom
  • Therapy Room

The 144, large (5" x 7") photo cards target six essential communication skills—two receptive (following directions and answering questions) and four expressive (defining, describing, inferencing, and discussing). Cool in School is effective for improving auditory comprehension, critical thinking, vocabulary, sentence formulation, questioning skills, pragmatic skills, and conversational skills.

Carl and Cate, the Cool in School penguins, guide the activities by providing receptive and expressive prompts for each picture scene. Focus on receptive skills by reading Carl’s prompts (in red) and target expressive skills by reading Cate’s prompts (in blue).

The double-sided game board gives you two ways to play—the simple game board provides a distraction-free playing surface for students with autism, and the other side of the game board is a great motivator for elementary and middle school students. Plus you choose the type of pawns you want to use—there are giant magnetic pawns for students with limited motor abilities and standard pawns for older students.

  • 6 Giant Magnetic Pawns
  • 6 Standard Pawns
  • Double-Sided Colorful Game Board (18" x 13¾")
  • 65 Cool Tokens
  • 144 Color-Coded Cards (12 subject areas, 12 cards each) (5" x 7")
  • Electronic Spinner (1–3)

  1. My New Favorite!
    I'm so glad I purchased this fun, versatile game. I've used it to target both language and artic goals for ages ranging from 4-13. It's the best purchase I've made this year!

  3. My Go-to Game
    This is a quick way to target receptive and expressive language skills while throwing in some artic as well! My students (age K - 5th grade) enjoy the game as is is fast paced and interactive. I play too and let them read and ask me the questions. I have up to 4 students in a group and use this game repeatedly. Quick to set up and start as well so I do not lose much time getting going. This game was definitely one of my better purchases!

  10. Great help with all language areas
    Cool in School has been a great tool with kids on or off of the Spectrum. The pictures are great and depict a number of areas of school, such as recess time, cafeteria time, and various subjects. I like to use this game with kids 5 and over.
