Due to teacher requests for more Name It! topics, PCI's Janie Haugen-McLane developed this new communication game. Like the original Name It!, this game provides students with fun ways to demonstrate whether common words are being understood and retained. Unlike speech programs that show picture cards and ask students to name the items, this game asks students to use their short-term and long-term memories to name dozens of functional, everyday words. The easy-to-read questions on the game board and draw cards ask players to name examples of items or people.

How the Game Works
When players land on a game-board square or select a draw card, they must name a word that matches the given category. For example, the first player to land on 'Name a Sound' can state 'telephone ringing,' as pictured on the square. The game monitor records the answer on the 'Name It!' score sheet under 'Sounds,' and play moves to the next player. When another player lands on the same square, he or she can name any sound except 'telephone ringing,' as that sound has already been named. Game progresses in the above manner, presenting questions in 24 categories.
Players receive one point for giving answers that have not already been used. Players keep their own scores, and the first person to reach 25 wins.
