This activity was created to help with building utterances (MLU). This is perfect for working with individuals with CAS, articulation disorders, or expressive language disorders. This activity combines a subject, verb, article/preposition, and object to create phrases and sentences. You can start with “bunny”, “a bunny”, “see a bunny”, “I see a bunny”, and then to “The girls saw the bunny”.
The subjects include pronouns and basic subjects. The verbs include 8 basic verbs in present, present progressive, past, and future tenses (look for more verbs coming soon). There is a set of 3 articles and 12 alternative words (prepositions and some prepositions with articles). The Keep Talking 1 comes with 23 cvcv words, 40 multisyllabic words (CVCVCV and CVCVCVCV), 38 plural multisyllabic words, and 16 trochee words. The parts of speech are color coded (modified Fitzgerald key) for additional cueing. Also included are blank color coded cards so that you can make your own words. I use this system with the created object cards as well as mas produced articulation card sets. There are full color and find and color activities to add some fun.
