{Free Printable} Puppy’s Pronouns & Sentence Building Cards

Puppy's Pronouns and Sentence Building - Free Printable - made by Angela Moorad, MS, CCC-SLP at OMazing Kids

.

{Teaching Pronouns} Most of the kids on my caseload have Autism or other special needs that tend to make understanding and using pronouns very challenging. I use a combination of visual supports, role playing with people, AAC and apps when tackling these goals. Some kids have a hard time hearing the difference between “he” and “she” so I add visual cues for lip shape as needed. The Fisher Price Puppy’s Home was such a huge hit in OMazing Kids speech therapy that I bought two more items to go with it to target the pronouns “he” and “she”. Of course I had to make visual supports to go along with that. I also included cards for prepositions, a few actions, three colors, etc. so we can build sentences. Here are the free printables:

After comparison shopping, I found the best deals on Walmart.com. I love how wide and low profile the cars are and the size of the puppy characters. Several of my patients who usually have difficulty playing with toy cars have been able to “push” these with just a flick of the fingers. There are sound effects when you push the car (but those can also be turned off).

{Teaching Prepositions & Spatial Concepts} Most of the kids on my caseload have Autism or other special needs that tend to make understanding spatial concepts and using prepositions very challenging. I use a combination of visual supports, real objects, movement, AAC and apps when tackling these goals.

I uploaded a template to the Attainment Company, Inc.‘s GoTalk Now AAC Online Gallery for “Prepositions & Spatial Concepts for the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Puppy’s Activity Home”. Includes front, back, side, in front, behind, beside, through, in & out. Search for “puppy” in the public gallery from within the app to find it.

free printable preposition and spatial concept cards - OMazing Kids

I made a set of 30 two-sided printable activity cards for the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Puppy’s Activity Home inspired by ones in the Positional Words Resource Box by Lakeshore Learning and the Hello Sunshine Game by Think Fun (both are fabulous visual ways to teach kids about prepositions & spatial concepts). The cards are color coded (10 brown for the puppy, 10 purple for the monkey, 5 orange for the car & 5 green for the frog) and the preposition is in that same color to make it stand out from the rest of the text.

Tip: Leave the cards attached in the middle, fold on the line, put a tiny dab of glue stick under the edge and then laminate the cards.

I bought my Puppy’s Activity Home during a recent online sale at Toys ‘R Us: http://t.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=30499426 and bought the monkey & car set on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Fisher-Price-Laugh-Learn-Monkeys-Learning/dp/B00FNMNLD8

I am continuing to share FREE printable resources like this on my blog in the hopes that I inspire other speechies to do the same. There are tons of SLP blogs now but most are primarily geared towards selling their TPT products.

I love the Hello Sunshine game. Unfortunately it appears that it is no longer readily available …. definitely worth adding to your list of things to look for at garage sales or thrift shops.

The Positional Words Resource Box is a “must have” for any SLP working with kids. It briefly went off the market so I grabbed mine as soon as I saw it was back.
