Defining using the ABC approach helps older language therapy students to form paragraph style definitions that they can feel proud of while expanding their vocabulary skills.

The ABC approach combines an easy to remember acronym, color coding, graphic organizers, and scaffolding to produce a complete definition.

►A is for Appearance ( size, shape, color)

►B is for Basics ( category, function, location)

►C is for Composition ( materials, parts)

The themed approach enhances carryover and reinforces timely, seasonal vocabulary. Color and B/w options are included. There is also a page of cut and paste terms for those students who may have difficulty writing in smaller spaces or have weak spelling skills.

These related resources all share the same themes as the Let's Define series. By coordinating the materials and teaching the seasonal terms in varied contexts, I have found an increase in mastery of goals and objectives, better standardized language test performance, and improved student engagement and carryover in my own speech therapy room!
