This is a real Super Mario-style video game targeting the oft-forgotten skill: problem identification. Sometimes we jump right into problem solving but forget that some of our students still need help identifying when there is a problem in the real world.
How could you know someone else is upset with you if you don’t first learn how to use your perspective taking skills? Or, how could you know that not paying attention in class today will lead to a problem in 3 months if you don’t know how to use your predicting skills? This game helps students build these necessary skills so that they can get to the next step: solving the problem!
This game itself is stuffed with fun features, like 6 different diverse main characters to choose from, ability to save and come back later, 3 difficulty levels, a satisfying puzzle where students can unlock treasure chests, and printable collectable certificates at the end.
If you like this version, you might also want to check out the other versions of this game (save $1.40 on each during the sale): Social Skills (Various Topics), Elementary Context Clues, Middle/High School Context Clues, Irregular Past Tense, Elementary Multiple Meaning Words, Middle/High School Multiple Meaning Words, Pronouns Version 1, and Pronouns Version 2.

This one is so much fun and it’s absolutely a steal for what you get, especially during the sale! Your students can pick their own team names and mascots and then choose from 3 different realistic carnival games: Lucky Ducks, Pirate Ship Races, and Balloon Darts. The games use real “gravity” effects, making them so much more interesting (e.g. when you throw a dart at a balloon, it acts just like it would in real life)!
This is perfect to have in your back pocket to use over and over.
Last But Not Least: Best for the Season☀️
If you’re looking for materials to use before the end of the school year and over the summer, these are my best end-of-year and summer TPT products! ☀️
Splunko! is an original game series based on a story-building card game I used to play with my dad as a child! In the ocean version, students drop a clam from the top of the screen and watch it bounce around against obstacles (like in the Plinko! game on Price is Right). It eventually settles into place on a character, activity, or setting. Once students go through all three steps and have their 3 story elements, they build their own short story including the character, activity and setting that was chosen!
Ocean Splunko! also comes with 3 different PDF packets: one with printable visual supports, one with worksheets for character, plot, and solution development, and one with blank templates for creating mini-books.
Splunko! is easily adaptable for all different skill levels: to make it more difficult, just run through the steps again to select more characters, settings, or activities to incorporate into the story!

2. Beach Themed Idioms Escape Room Boom Cards –
Practice understanding idioms in sentences with this fun beach-themed escape room! Students work their way through various beach-themed landscapes and answer multiple-choice idioms questions in order to find clues. At the end, they will use a hint to unscramble the clues and get the password to escape!
If you like this version, you might also want to check out the Camping Idioms Escape Room.

3. Camping Themed “All About Me” Escape Room –
I alway think conversation starter activities are fun both at the beginning and end of the year, and they can be used to target so many language and pragmatic goals! This camping themed conversation starter escape room is a perfect send-off into summer.
If you’re looking for other conversation starters, I also have these age-specific Boom Cards conversation decks: elementary conversation topics, middle school conversation topics, and high school conversation topics.

One Last Thing:
If you’ve wanted to give a mini projector a try for using digital materials during in-person therapy, I just found the best deal on one I’ve ever seen! There’s a 30% off coupon you can apply at checkout, so it comes out to a great price. One caveat: I sent this out to my FB group and email list friends last night and it looks like there are only 5 left… but if you’re lucky, you can still grab one here!
That’s all for now!
Whew – I know that was a lot – but I hope this helps you make the most of the last TPT sale until sometime next school year! If you’re shopping on TPT today and tomorrow, just don’t forget these two things:
- Leave reviews on any products you’ve purchased in the past: for each review you leave, you earn TPT credits that you can spend like cash during the sale.
- Use the code THANKYOU22 at checkout to get the maximum discount! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve filled my cart during a sale, checked out, and then realized I forgot to enter the code. Don’t be like me. 🤣
