Practice Makes Perfect
After you go through the guided picture cards, try some of these extension activities with the items in the kit to help generalize the use of pronouns:
- Sentence Formulation. Pick one of the figurines and an item from the kit. Then make up a sentence with name of the item and the correct pronoun. For example, if you pick the girl and the dog your sentence could be: she has a dog, the dog is hers, she is taking the dog for a walk, etc..
- Story telling. Use the figurines and as many items in the kit as you like to tell a simple story or sequence of events while using the correct pronouns.
- Pretend play. Engage the child in imaginative play with all the items in the kit. Stress the pronouns when you talk and provide a model for them to imitate if they make a pronoun error.
