"What" questions for Pre-K: A multi-step approach for making Wh- questions meaningful to early communicators
As SLPs, we know that language consists of 3 components: form, content, and use. “Wh-“ questions can be difficult to teach because they consist of different forms, the content is flexible, and there are many uses! The result? We try to teach them all at once. We are presenting our clients with flashcards and asking them to memorize the response to each card. We don’t make any purposeful connections between what they know and how they respond to “what,” questions. This packet serves to break down the form, limit the content, and make “what” questions easier to use! It focuses on familiar nouns and verbs.
This 45 page packet includes:
