No-Prep Therapy Activity: Guess My Monster!
By Summer Stanley
Halloween is coming up soon! No-prep activities like this one can make a hectic time in the classroom a bit easier by giving your little goblins a fun game that also hones their describing skills.
Number of Players
  • 2 or more
Materials Needed
  • Guess My Monster game page (one copy for each player or team)
  • Pencils or crayons
  • Bingo Chips (optional)
  • Laminate game pages and use dry erase markers during game play (optional)
Object of the Game
Guess your opponent’s monster by asking “yes” or “no” questions about its features.
  • Provide each player with a copy of the game found on the next page.
  • Each player selects a monster that his/her opponent will be attempting to guess.
  • Begin by asking your opponent a “yes” or “no” question about his/her chosen monster:
    • Example: You might ask “Does your monster have more than 2 eyes?” If your opponent answers “yes,” eliminate all pictures that do not have more than 2 eyes by crossing them out or covering them with a bingo chip. If your opponent answers “no,” cross out or cover all monsters with more than 2 eyes.
  • Take turns asking questions to try to guess your opponent’s monster. When you feel confident you can guess your opponent’s monster, do so during your turn.
Tips for Game Play
  • It is helpful for the adult to record the number of the picture chosen for each player and keep the answer safe until the end of the game.
  • For groups of players larger than two:
    • Divide into teams of two.
    • Designate one player to answer questions and the remaining players to ask the questions. The player who guesses the picture correctly then becomes the player answering questions.
  • Use the visual cues found on the following page to help players struggling to identify, label, and describe attributes.
