"StoryCards" have been designed to develop children's understanding of basic concepts and to promote the use of expressive language. Each pack features one concept and contains four stories, each with an endearing central character. "The StoryCards" can be used alongside other, more structured, language resources in order to reinforce understanding and encourage generalisation. On the reverse of each card is a photocopiable line illustration for colouring and reinforcement of the concepts. This pack features Adjectives: Story A - "Elephant to the Rescue": big, little, wet and dry; Story B - "A Home of his Own": full, empty, open and shut; Story C - "Nowhere to Hide": long, short, tall and small; and Story D - "Time to Play": dirty, clean, dark and light. Each adjective is repeated several times in various situations to reinforce the child's understanding of its meaning. As the child's understanding increases, expression using the adjectives can be encouraged. The child will also learn to expand early vocabulary to include situations outside their own world. The grammatical structures will be modelled and generalised, thus encouraging the use of more mature utterances.
This pack can also be used to develop understanding of other concepts, including verbs, opposites, pronouns and comparatives/superlatives, alongside the adjectives. Each story can also be used for sequencing and retelling.
