Language Development – Fishing for Fun

In previous posts I talked about using themes to help with teaching and practicing new vocabulary with pre-school aged children.

It is also important to use fun games that can be adapted to focus on words and language you are targeting. Fishing games with pictures pasted on cardboard fish, a fishing pole with a magnet and a paper clip connected to each fish is a simple but great game to play with kids.  I use the fishing game for work on speech sounds, language development and literacy skills.

In this post I will focus on the concept ‘Opposites’ to build vocabulary around concepts and to help combine words into phrases and sentences. But you can use lots of different types of concepts and targets.

Targeted for Parents. and Teachers. Parents are the  child’s best teacher!  Have fun, use an animated voice and enjoy special times with your developing child. Be creative with the fish.

Diagnosed with Aspergers at 34, this blog chronicles some of the life events I've gone through, and how I hope to help others on the Autism Spectrum. Posts that are personal opinions will be moving to another Wordpress site by the end of the year; for those looking for help with autism, I hope you will continue to visit and spread the word about the articles that most of the time are links to something I read. Please let me know what challenges you are facing, and I will do my best to address them. Thanks for reading my blog!
