Goal Area: Expressive Language

Child will increase early two word combinations (e.g. verb+noun; verb+location, possessive noun+object)

Materials needed: A variety of laundry items, several laundry baskets, family’s seasonal clothes (e.g. hat, scarf, gloves) 

Activity directions: Sort through various items in the laundry basket focusing on  specific two word combination (e.g. put in, take out, big shirt vs. little pants,  mommy’s socks, daddy’s pants etc.) 

  1. Use  repetition and modeling of forms alternating between two word targets and expansion phrases  Ex: “mommy’s socks” “Look, I can put mommy’s socks in this pile.” 
  2. Use specific vocabulary words and phrase ( put in in the basket vs. put in there  OR Give me the big sock vs. get me that one.”

Helpful tips:  Make it silly  to engage your child  by  trying the clothes on that don’t fit or putting them on the wrong body part .
