What is wrong? pictures

Pictures of everyday objects and situations with errors, for example a picture of a house with the front door on the second floor, a picture of a phone with a banana instead of a handset, a someone using an umbrella with holes in it in the rain

Commercially produced

"What's Wrong?" cards are available.

If you have any of your own pictures appropriate for this activity or you know of a link, please consider adding them to the site at www.commtap.org

1. Have a look at the card and get the child to identify what is wrong or unusual about what is depicted on the card.

2. Get the child to talk about what problems could arise from the situation in the picture and how they could be resolved.

3. Get the child to relate the picture to their own experience.

If the child has difficulties, you can look surprised or puzzled when you see the picture, make comments like "there's something wrong", or "my phone's not like that", or "Oh no! He's getting wet!"

To keep the child motivated they could also post the card once the card has been discussed.
