Susan Berkowitz's Free Core Word Phrase-Building Game

Core Word Roll and Fill-in is an activity for decontextualized core word practice with AAC systems, but can also be used with other emerging communicators who need to practice expanding their responses/utterances.



There are 24 core words represented on the dice.

The objective of this activity is for AAC users to use the core word rolled on the die to:


  1. find the word in their AAC system, 
  2. create a 2-3 word phrase using that core word, or
  3. create a simple sentence using that core word.

For the next step in creating core word phrases and sentences, try the full version of Core Vocabulary Roll a Sentence Practice.
