I use this carrier phrase to assist children who have difficulty creating a sentence that contains adjectives. This visual aid helps students progress from a short sentence such as “I see a dog” to “I see a large dog that is brown” causing their expressive language to expand. I place the visual cue in a clear page protector and put it in the student’s speech folder. When we review picture cards or Boardmaker symbols they may be working on, the student follows each word with his or her finger and uses the picture symbols as cues to add the size and color to the sentence. This activity has been very successful and this card can be faded out eventually. Enjoy!! Please leave feedback!!
