This completely revised pack provides illustrations and activities that will enable the adult to model and demonstrate ‘not’ + verb (action word) phrases for children who have language delay. Examples include ‘not running’, ‘not waving’, and ‘not eating’. It also includes ideas and opportunities for the child to begin to use the ‘not’ + verb construction themselves in a fun and functional way.
Children who require additional support to develop their grammar system need to hear multiple repetitions of their target grammatical construction, accompanied by close modelling, correction, and positive praise of their own attempts to construct the negative. The illustrations and activities within this pack will facilitate this process.
The resources are suitable for use with children who have delayed or disordered language development, and would also be suitable for children who have English as an additional language (EAL).
Aims: To develop understanding and use of the negative sentence form.
