Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Everyday situation with words and a picture

A picture of an everyday event, or social setting e.g. crossing the road, or going to the cinema.

A story to go with the picture (no more than 5 or 6 sentences).

Or

See the resource sheets in 'Language for Thinking' (LfT) by Parsons and Branagan (Published by Speechmark). If using this publication, use Module 3 and the level C questions.

1. Choose a scenario.

2. Let the child read the story.

3. Ask the child the questions verbally.

4. Focus on questions that require more working out and understanding of the context, e.g. 'What will happen if he...?' 'Why is it made of that?' 'If you were X, what would you say / do?' 'Why can't he?' (LfT level C questions).

Use some simpler questions to start with.

If a child gives a short answer, prompt them to expand it.
