Categories: Flash Cards

These flash cards have three pictures and three questions.  The questions require the student to (1) name the category, (2) name one more item in the category, and (3) name one item that is NOT in the category.  This also helps with the basic concepts of negation and category exclusion (what does not belong).  Twelve cards are included.

Receptive Language: Is or Is Not (Part 2)

This is another wonderful idea that came from my client's mom.  Thanks again M.K.!  The best ideas come from those who know our clients better than we do, so I am always thankful for other people's ideas!  We are still trying several different approaches to see what will stick when it comes to negation concepts.  We might also try this same idea with pictures rather than words.

Here is another worksheet addressing the language concept of "not."  This is a difficult concept to target, which is why I have made so many materials to work on it!  Lots of repetitive practice is needed.

You could also work on this using a set of real life objects (e.g., "Give me everything that is NOT blue.  Give me all of the dolls that are NOT boys").

Receptive Language: Understanding "Is" and "Is Not"

This is part two of an activity I posted last week.  My sweet client was able to identify which item from a choice of two was NOT in a category, but this takes it to the next level.  Now, he will have to identify which item IS and which item IS NOT in that category.  Cognitively, he understands what belongs in a category, but has trouble understanding and expressing the language concept of "not."

Receptive Language: Understanding "Not"

This worksheet addresses the basic language concept of "not."  One of my kids can identify what doesn't belong from a field of 3-4, but it's harder to decide what is "not" in a category when there are only two choices.  What's even harder will be alternating between asking what IS and what IS NOT in a given category!  We will get to that soon!

Receptive Language: Understanding "Not"

I have a few kids who have trouble with negation concepts (not, none, nothing, except, etc.).  This is a hard concept to teach!  I usually start by putting 3 similar noun picture cards in front of the child and saying, "These are all foods."  I then put a non-food picture card in front of the child (but away from the others) and say, "But this one is NOT a food."  Then I gradually fade the verbal cues until the child is the one saying "This one is NOT a ______."  I made this worksheet to make the concept a little more abstract (i.e., without using picture cues).

Expressive Language: Asking "Why Not" Questions

This is a particularly hard goal for some of my clients.  It involves not only formulating a semantically appropriate, grammatically correct question from a prompt, but also using negation concepts.  That's a lot of work going into forming one question!

Categories: What Doesn't Belong?

I made this worksheet for one of my clients to work on identifying the word in a group of 4 that does not belong in a category... and more importantly, to explain why it does not belong!
