The game is based on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk and includes elements that feature in most versions of the story. It allows children to practise sequencing events in the story and to compose sentences using story language.

It can be played by two children or two small teams, each playing with counters to represent beans and a cut-out figure of Jack. Adults will need to support the children as they play and provide sentence prompts where needed. The adult could also assess the use of spoken language.

Preparation

You will need a dice, 12 red counters and 12 green counters – one for each player/team. Each player/team also needs to cut out a red or green figure of Jack to move up and down the beanstalk. These can all be downloaded below.
