Many speech/language students are working on answering a variety of “wh-“ questions, as this is a foundational skill important for a wide range of academic and non-academic tasks.
One of the trickiest “wh-“ questions for SLPs to teach and for students to master is “when.” Not only is the concept of time difficult for many of our students, there are also a number of ways to answer different “when” questions that sometimes need to be explicitly taught.
Answer types addressed in this packet:
5. Time of day
6. Specific day or time frame
8. When + explanation
The materials offered here are meant to provide a systematic way of teaching and practicing the skill of answering a variety of “when” questions.
Materials included in this packet:
-Baseline probes to help determine present levels and a plan of attack for individual students.
-Data sheet to keep track of progress and help inform decision making in terms of therapy progression.
-Common Core Standards related to answering “when” questions for grades K-3.
-Sample IEP goal, objectives, and cues.
-Color-coded visuals to teach each answer type, as well as to serve as a cue during practice activities.
-Color-coded phrase and sentence strips to help scaffold verbal responses using appropriate syntactic structure for each answer type.
-Lists of 20 questions per answer type (160 total questions).
-The same 20 questions color-coded on small cards to fit the doors on the game Cariboo (or any of my Cariboo compatible hard goods), plus blank color-coded cards to add your own questions.
-Sample and blank therapy plan pages.
-Teaching, practice, and extension activity ideas.
-NEW: "wh-" question research summaries and developmental norms
I hope these materials will help you and your students master “when” questions!
