PICTURE CARDS | Expressive Language: Getting it Right!
AGE GROUP: 5+
Do your learners struggle with word-finding? Are you looking for a fun and practical tool to boost their expressive language skills? This comprehensive pack of picture cards features all you need to enhance expressive language in a fun and challenging way! Built around useful everyday experiences, it contains a set of 60 large picture cards (17 x 12 cm each) featuring a full-color photo on the front and a set of targeted questions on the back of each card – alongside answer notes for each question, to save you valuable preparation time!
A carefully chosen everyday item depicted on each card provides the starting point for a set of questions that target a wide range of skills and encourage your learner to think and talk about the item on the picture from several angles. The questions progressively prompt your learner to:
- provide some key information about the item depicted on the card
- briefly describe the item on the card
- make comparisons
- put words in categories
- come up with words that are closely related
- make logical inferences
Boost your learners’ expressive language skills and help them master this all-important area of language development. Expressive language is significant as it enables them to describe their needs and desires, express their thoughts and ideas, support their views with clear arguments, develop the ability to express themselves in writing and eventually interact effectively with other people.
The pack comprises 60 printable double-sided picture cards and 720 targeted questions, all accompanied by answer notes. It also includes a part that is specially designed for tablets, so that the cards can also be used autonomously.
