First/Next/Last, Concepts for Language Enrichment, is one of our best selling concept packs. Language enrichment is important because both formal research and anecdotal evidence clearly indicates that increasing numbers of children are entering Foundation Stage with poor language skills. (The Cost to the Nation of Children’s Poor Communication’ ICAN Hartshorne 2006. (http://bit.ly/Cost2NationICan))
This series of worksheets explicitly teach a wide range of concepts linking to the National Curriculum and/or the Basic Concepts section of the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals (C.E.L.F.).
The concepts First, Next and Last are difficult for many children. These language development exercises provide a range of invaluable activities suitable for a wide range of abilities. The clear instructions make them ideal for clinic, home and/or school as teaching assistant resources.
Another ‘must have’ if you are working on sequencing. Many children would benefit from the reinforcement provided by this work pack, on these essential concepts.
