EGGspected and unEGGspected Behaviors Activity

We have been talking a lot about expected and unexpected behaviors in my speech room lately. With Easter coming up, I have been using plastic eggs a bunch - putting artic words in eggs, putting verb cards in eggs, having students describe eggs.... I knew I wanted to make something especially for my pragmatic language groups as well. This is what I came up with:

The game I created is called How Do You EGGspect me to feel? It includes 12 little scenarios that students have to read. After they read the scenario, they have to state (1) how the characters feel and (2) whether the character's behaviors were expected or unexpected.

To make the same thing in your classroom, you will need a dozen plastic eggs (I got these silly faces eggs at Michael's), an empty egg carton, and the free download from my TPT store.

I like the clear egg cartons, but the regular cardboard cartons can be cute too - especially with a little paint:

Since I am always looking for ways to tie articulation practice into my language activities, I made sure that this one could easily target the /r/ sound. All of the characters in the scenario cards have names that begin with /r/. Perfect for mixed groups of artic and langauge kiddos.

The download also includes a sorting activity. Students sort egg cards into piles of EGGspected and unEGGspected behaviors. I didn't have time to get a picture of it in action today, but it is pretty cute too.

I hope your Easter season is EGGcellent!
