Word Retrieval Activities

Word Retrieval Activities



Description: Here are some quick activities you can do for children who are having word retrieval problems!  Choose a few activities that will make them think of words quickly.  The idea is that these types of word games will help them organize the language centers of their brain a bit better.  Here are a few to get you going (or you can download our worksheet pack below):

  • Fill-in-the-blank associations: “a pair of ___” or “peanut butter and ___”
  • Rapid naming from categories: “name as many vehicles as you can”
  • Provide a word from a definition: “A red and juicy fruit that is often made into juice or sauce.”
  • Listing items required to complete a task: “Name everything you need to brush your teeth”
  • Finish similes: “As sticky as a ____”
  • Providing antonyms and synonyms: “Provide an antonym and synonym for ‘happy'”
