This is an extensive program for students who need structure and visual prompts for organising how they use descriptions when speaking and writing.
Included are 11 specific describing clues, able to be laminated and cut out and placed on a key ring for easy access or a smaller version for laminating onto a desk for easy access. The 11 clues include:
4. Made of?
7 Parts of?
10 First sound?
Each clue has a series of activities to help students become more familiar with spceific description qualities. After each 3-4 clues, the program allows for practice before introducing other clues so as to give students insight into the progression of the process of describing. It also helps students learn to identify the 'most important descriptors' from those that are redundant. At the end students have the opportunity to practise a number of written tasks, all supported by visual cuing in the page margin.
A checklist and extensive verb vocabulary list is provided in the appendix.
I love using this program. For speech language pathologists, aides and parents, it provides a week by week structure with all resources included and can be used for a block of 10-12 weeks or more. Nothing more to do.
I hope you enjoy using it.
