This is a four page document containing basic sentence starters that I use during therapy in a preschool setting, however it is not grade specific. It can also be utilized by the teacher and/or parent. I have made these sentence strips for parents in the past, and sent them home as a resource to encourage language and expand utterances. The document is designed so that you print (I suggest vellum), cut out the words and phrases/sentences, and laminate them (if you wish) - please see attached photo of what I use during therapy. They can also be hung in the classroom setting to encourage students to expand utterances and/or ask other students to play with them. The sentence starters which you can obtain from the document are as follows:
Yo quiero/I want (there is a boy and a girl if you wish to be gender specific to the student)
Yo veo/I see
Yo tengo/I have
Yo quiero más por favor/I want more please
Sí and No/Yes and No
Me gusta and No me gusta/I like and I don't like
¿Puedo jugar contigo?/Can I play with you?
Ya terminé/All done
Mi turno and Tu turno/My turn and your turn
¿Quieres jugar conmigo?/Do you want to play with me?
At the end of the document there are sheet of dots. They are designed with five dots on each of the four rows. Please cut the document into four strips to utilize five dots at one time. They can be used to represent a multisyllabic word (i.e. mo-chi-la) or each dot can represent a word within a sentence or phrase (i.e. "Yo tengo una mochila roja"/I have a red backpack). The dots help to breakdown the words into syllables and increase overall speech intelligibility. They can also help to slow down a student who talks quickly and therefore presents with decreased speech intelligibility at the phrase and sentences levels.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have about the product. ¡¡Gracias!!
