This Pokemon sorting activity was an extension of some open ended drawing that J and I were doing with his whiteboard, and I have to admit, it was a brilliant idea for working on speech and language skills with him. That was not my initial intention at all. I just simply wanted to encourage him to sort since he loves his Pokemon figures so much.

I also did not anticipate how much five year old K would love this activity, but he too loves these Pokemon figures.

Before I knew it, both boys were enjoying this Pokemon sorting activity using Venn diagrams in no time. They happily played with this activity for an entire afternoon.

If you don't have any Pokemon figures on hand, then you can easily substitute the figures with some Pokemon cards or even print off some Pokemon characters.

I drew a Venn diagram on the whiteboard and labeled the circles with different attributes. Sometimes I used attributes such as the type of Pokemon they are, specific features like wings or horns, or even color. Sometimes the kids would suggest ideas for the circles and sometimes I labeled them based off what Pokemon figures we had handy.

Then the kids would sort the Pokemon figures into the correct places while we discussed together what attributes each Pokemon figure had or did not have.

Since we are always looking for new speech therapy ideas for J, we used this sorting activity as a way to build vocabulary and expressive language. He loves Pokemon. That's no secret, so why wouldn't we use that love for building skills? As he sorted the Pokemon, he had to describe why or why it didn't belong in a specific circle on the Venn diagram by comparing the attributes of the Pokemon characters.
