NP11 Intervention Overview

Using the SHAPE CODING™ System Possessive Noun + Noun Intervention Outline

You will need:

 

A selection of toys/objects

 

App Settings: Use custom pink word

 

Intervention steps:

 

  1. Use a set of pictures or small figures to which items belong, e.g. Pets: dog – bone, kitten – ball, snake – rock. Name the pets, e.g. Fido, Fluffy and Fran.
  2. Present a set of sentences related to Fido. Explain that the red word in the oval becomes a pink word when ‘s is added.

 

FidO 
Fido's bone 
has 
is 
bone 
a

 

Show how this can be used in ovals AND rectangles.

 

Mum 
hides 
Fido's 
bone

 

 

  1. Repeat with the other pets.

 

  1. Act out and create sentences where objects are hidden/found by different people, e.g. “Dad found Fran’s rock”  to ensure that the learner associates the ‘s with who the items belongs to and not who found it.

 

  1. Practise creating possessive nouns using ‘s and creating sentences using these in both ovals and rectangles.

Repeat the steps above using proper nouns, e.g. Jaden, Meera, Dad, Mum

 

  1. At all stages correct SLT’s /own “bad sentences” + self-monitoring tasks.

 

  1. Generalise the use of possessive pronouns and nouns using lotto or memory pairs games, e.g. a Simpson’s lotto might include Homer’s beer, Marge’s pearls, Bart’s skateboard.
  2. Now introduce this pattern:

the fireman 
has 
the fireman's truck 
truck 
is 
red

Show how the fireman becomes a pink word when ‘s is added. There are now 2 pink words in the oval or rectangle.

 Repeat with multiple sets of sentences in the above pattern.

  1. At all stages correct SLT’s /own “bad sentences” + self-monitoring tasks.

 

 

  1. Generalise the use of possessive nouns + nouns using games like Happy Families. Practise asking questions, such as: “Have you got the farmer’s wife?” “Have you got the baker’s son?”
