Reading and Speaking Phrases

Adeline is saying many single words and some phrases but I would like to see her put more words together.   She also reads many words and a couple of books but I would like to see more word combinations when reading also, so I created this book.  I think I will be making many more this weekend since this worked so well.

I have been doing a little research and have read that a good place to start helping a child speak phrases is to use a describing word plus and an object.  Adeline knows her colors and "cat" so this is what we started with.

I first pointed to the color and said "purple", then pointed to cat and said "cat" then to the words "purple cat".  Adeline seems to be very interested in this book and by the said was saying the phrase.

To make this book I just found a simple cat coloring page, printed up seven copies on cardstock and laminated them.  I am going to be doing a butterfly book next.

This activity helped practice our reading and speech together.

  3. I was at a Signalong training session just yesterday, and they were saying that for children with Down Syndrome the written word is a great way in to help increase vocabulary, as they are more likely to have a greater grasp of the word as a symbol. So intresting then to see your post today, I'll have to use this in my classroom!
