Before the age of 3 years, most typically developing kids understand and start to use the preposition “on”. Some, however, need more structured help, including many children with developmental and other language disorders and some children (and adults) learning English as an additional language.
In this no-preparation resource, we provide lots of repetitions to help children to understand and use “on” correctly. We use the word in context, within short sentences using functional vocabulary. This enables children to hear the word as it is used in basic sentences (with natural primary stress patterns).
To play the animations, click the the Slide Show tab on Powerpoint and press ‘Play from Start’ and then click the cursor on each page from page 4 to see the animations unfold.
We have had good success with this resource in our speech pathology clinic, particularly via telehealth. We hope you do, too.
