1. Use pictures of food. Ask the child to sort them into groups (e.g. 'fruit' and 'vegetables'). Ask them to name all the pictures in the group as well as giving the group name

2. Use pictures of furniture and pictures of rooms. Ask the child to sort them into groups according to which room they come from. Ask them to name all the pictures in the group as well as giving the name of the room they are from.

3. Use pictures of animals. Ask the child to sort them into groups according to where the animal lives. Ask them to name all the pictures in the group as well as saying where that group of animals lives.

If the child struggles to relate to pictures use models (e.g. toy animals) or even real items (e.g. real food or empty packets).
