The Speech & Language Toy Catalog Companion is designed to work with any toy catalog mailer. It’s appropriate for both preschool and elementary aged students. It’s 22 pages in length and targets articulation, functions, attributes, categories, compare/contrasting, persuasion and perspective taking.
The articulation, function, attributes and categories pages are made for either writing answers or drawing answers.
I had my preschool and kindergarten friends draw their answers. The first graders and older students wrote their answers.
The cards come with suggested function, attributes or categories to search for. Add other ideas specific to the toys in your catalog.
A Venn diagram is included for comparing and contrasting toys or items with your older students.
There is a page describing perspective taking. Two sheets are included with suggested characters. Have your students think about what another person might want to receive for the holidays.
How will a 3-year-old girl and an 11 year old boy differ?
There is a page describing persuasion skills. Have your students persuade a friend to choose a certain toy, to not spend money on a toy, and to combine money to share a toy. Use bullet points or narratives to make persuasive arguments.
Two writing pages were added to work on writing a letter to Santa or Parents.
