Adventures in Basic Concept Development (#49959-IN)

Ages 4 through 11. Help children develop basic concepts such as through, around, wide, narrow, top, and bottom as they describe actions, answer questions, manipulate the position of reproducible noun "cutout" pictures, tell stories, make comparisons, and respond to oral instructions. High interest reproducible activities are included.

The activities are divided into seven sections:

  • Listen and Draw. Students are asked to finish incomplete illustrations by following instructions that contain basic concepts.
  • Place the Pictures. Students are asked to follow instructions by placing pictures in empty boxes.
  • Listening Workout. Students are asked to follow directions such as, "Place the tall dog under the short cup." Concepts relating to the size and position of nouns are emphasized.
  • Talk About the Picture. Each worksheet in this section includes an illustration in which two contrasting concepts are depicted (e.g., above vs. below). The student's task is to use these concepts when describing the action shown in the illustration.
  • Compare the Pictures. The activities in this section require students to use a variety of basic concepts to describe differences between pictures.
  • Concept Stories. Picture stories are presented and questions are asked about the stories. The activities provide opportunities for students to practice using basic concepts during meaningful communication activities.
  • Printed Words and Sentences. In this section, students complete worksheets by responding to oral instructions such as, "Draw a box around the middle word." Concepts related to size and location are emphasized.
