StoryCards

StoryCards have been designed to help develop children's understanding of basic concepts and to promote the use of expressive language using a story form that is both appealing and motivating.

StoryCards take a new approach to learning basic language concepts by presenting the material in story form, which children find both interesting and enjoyable. Beautifully illustrated, StoryCards are a versatile resource to help to develop children's understanding of basic language concepts, to promote the use of expressive language and to encourage sequencing and retelling.

Each pack contains four stories with an endearing central animal character. The Verbs and Prepositions packs also contain finger puppets of the main characters so the concepts can be acted out.

Photocopiable line drawings on the back of each card provide a colouring activity and help to reinforce the concepts discussed.

There are no words on the cards themselves; making them ideal for the teaching of foreign languages.

Intended for use alongside other more structured language resources, StoryCards will help to reinforce understanding of basic language and encourage generalisation.

User group: Speech & language therapists, teachers, occupational therapists, educational psychologists, parents, carers, language teachers.

StoryCards Verbs

Use this pack to develop children's understanding of basic verbs. It features four stories: -The Hungry Frog (Rana the Frog): is, sit, jump, swim, fall, climb, see.-Muddy All Over (Pongo the Hippo): like, say, go, wash, smell, pull, push.-Eric Sings All Night (Eric the Sheep): sing, love, come, find, look at/for, sleep. -Hip, Hip, Hooray (Oz the Ostrich): run, walk, play, kick, eat, drink, stand.

Each verb is repeated several times in various situations to reinforce the child's understanding of its meaning. Finger puppets of the four central characters are excellent for 'doing' the actions in the stories, and the line illustrations on the reverse of each card provide a colouring activity for the child.

As the child's understanding of the concept increases, expression using the verbs can be encouraged. This pack can also be used to develop understanding of other concepts, including adjectives, opposites, prepositions and comparatives/superlatives, alongside the verbs.
