Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Talking about drawings

Scrap paper and Blu-tack (or other reusable sticky substance)

1. Look at a child's drawing and ask 'What's that?' If the child does not respond and you know the title of the drawing say 'Look...you are drawing car/dog/etc.'

2. Point to the drawing and name it for the child using one or two words.

3. Label the child's drawing if you know what it is! Write the label on a scrap of paper and stick it on to the picture with Blu-tack. Say 'Look...car...red car 'etc point to the label and the picture

Using written labels along with the spoken words can assist language development in some children - such as some children with Down's Syndrome, Social Communication Disorder.

Making a drawing scrap book

Child's drawings and sellotape and scrap paper

Avoid repeatedly asking the child to name something - if the child doesn't name something, name it yourself and move on to another item.
