Story books and pictures

Describe and look for things and actions in story books and pictures.

Fishing game

pictures with paper clips attached, magnetic fishing rods, 'pond' e.g. a flat box

Put cards in the box, take turns to fish for a picture, say/sign what is fished out.

Give the pupil time to name the object. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, the first sound. or the word or sign to repeat)

'Hide the fish'

Eight picture cards, small piece of paper with a fish drawn on it

One person hides a piece of paper (with a picture of a fish on it) under one of the cards whilst everyone else has their eyes closed. The children take it turns to guess under which card the fish is hidden - they must say the names of the objects on the cards - they are not allowed to point.

Collages

Pictures of everyday objects, background pictures (Black Sheep Sentence Builder and Narrative Packs have some good ones)

Take a picture of an object, say or sign what it is, stick it to the collage

Give the pupil time to name the object. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, the first sound. or the word or sign to repeat)

Have each child take a turn at thinking of other items they could add to that collage. They can draw these on.

Jotters

Pictures of everyday objects from class and outside. A blank jotter book

Have a blank section for each group of items. Decide together which group a particular item should go in. The jotter can be added to over the term, and the child can use it as their 'dictionary'.

Have the child take a turn at thinking of other items they could add

Odd one out activites

Pictures of everyday objects from class and outside

Set out 3 pictures, e.g. 2 from the class and 1 from outside.

Decide together which one doesn't fit with the others.

The child can have a turn at setting out 3 for you.

Give the pupil time to think about it. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, talking about where you find each object and what you do with it.)
