Many of my speech kids have goals that target labeling categories. I have a few commercially purchased products, that I love, that target these skills. The only problem I’m having is that the children are memorizing the 2-3 target objects within that category and not generalizing skills beyond that. I wanted to create card sets that target the same category but with different objects, not only to expand skills, but to help generalize. This download also has a “what doesn’t belong” and “How many can you name cards to promote higher level skills. Below are suggestions on how to embed other vocabulary concepts using the language processing hierarchy. Please note that not all vocabulary concepts will be able to be targeted for each card.
SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO EXPAND
Label – Have child label each picture (pencil – crayon – pen)
Function – Have the child tell you how you use or what you do with the objects? (“what do you do with a pencil?”)
Association – Have the student generate associations for objects (“What goes with a pencil?”)
Category – How do these objects go together?
Antonym – Have the student generate antonyms. (“The pencil is short, what is the opposite of short?”)
Synonym – Have the student generate antonyms. (“The pencil tip is pointy. What is another word for pointy?’)
Adjectives – Give a word to describe the pencil or present the child with a cloze statement. (“The pencil is____”)
Compare/Contrast – Have the child compare and contract objects. How are a pen and pencil alike/different?
Multiple Meaning Have the student define multiple meaning words. (“The pen is new. The farmer cleaned the pen.’)
Analogies. Have the student complete analogies. (“Pencil is to paper as Crayon is to _________.”)
