  • Each board contains 74 vocabulary picture-words, for a total of 1,036 picture-words!

    I use this in addition to lessons on describing with attributes, compare/contrast. Variety of boards keeps me interested, variety of pictures gives the students choices!

    I was recently trained on the EET (Expanding Expression Tool) and this product helps students with goals that need to use those description words and the EET can be paired with this vocabulary game. Great product!

    This game is very fun and engaging for students of different ages! The colorful game board and dinosaur tokens are very appealing to little ones. The game is simple to play and is a fantastic way of getting a child to expand their length of utterance as well as use adjectives! For older students, you can add onto it by having them put the target word into a sentence after describing it. If you are looking for an easy game to grab off the shelf and immediately incorporate into your vocabulary building therapy, go for Descripto Bingo! I highly recommend it!

    My students love this product and continue to ask for it! I use it to expand utterances for my younger students. With my older students, I combine the amazing variety of pictures with the EET program (Expanding Expression Toolkit). It's amazing how much language I get from my students.

    As an ELD teacher, the opportunities for language development are endless with this describing game. The students like creating their own categories and descriptors. After oral practice, writing can follow as a precursor to a larger essay.

    The kids on my caseload have found this very motivating. Because it is a rather large page with many pictures on it, it was a little bit too "busy" for some of my younger kids, but older elementary age did fine with it.

  14. A Very useful
    Quality

    Dino Descrpto has proven to be very useful in working with my caseload. There are enough pictures that it have longevity with the same client. Too many products are only good for one or two sessions, and then the kids memorize the response and they haven't learned the skill I'm targeting. Although I wish that there wasn't a giant unusable picture in the middle. That way when working with a group, I could turn it into a "sequence" or "bingo" type of game while still targeting descriptors.

It can be used to help increase vocabulary in general and to help children increase their ability to describe and identify items.

    great for older kids. many pictures to choose from and describe using various attributes. not so good for younger kids as there are so many pictures to choose from. Also, the kids may get confused between the picture and actual target word. For example, the picture might be of an eye but the target is actually eyebrow.Kids love the game!

    I use this item mostly to target describing items by their attributes, but I can see using this with some of my articulation kiddos who are working on carryover. I like that the game boards include a few less common items, to challenge the students.

    I recently purchased this product and I am extremely pleased with its many uses. It comes in a nice traveling package that is perfect for traveling to clients and different contracts. I could not believe all the vocabulary words and the creative ideas for activities that it has. It has eliminated my need to carry numerous boxes of vocabulary, category , and other cards to work use for the same goals. I like that it has simple but also more difficult pictures on it so I can use it for many age groups. I have had a lot of positive feedback from clients and their parents!
