- Show the children all of the material and bring it to the table. (Except for the bouquet of flowers)
- Write an article, adjective, and a noun, such as “the red flower”.
- Give the slip to the child to read and then have the child go and get the correct object.
- Have the child place (in this example) the red flower above the slip of paper and reread the slip of paper.
- Repeat so each child has a chance to go and get an object.
- Ask for each flower in turn by using the words used on the slip of paper.
- Tie the flowers together with the ribbon.
- Have the children read all of the slips.
- Tell the children, “all of the flowers are joined together but all of the words are not joined together”.
- Write the word “and” on a slip of paper using the RED pencil and have the children read it out loud.
- Place it between two slips of paper saying “the —— flower” but say that you need one more joining slip of paper.
- Write “and” in RED and place it between the last two slips of paper reading “the —— flower”
- Then read all of the slips together: “the red flower and the blue flower and the pink flower”
- Tell the children that the flowers are all connected and all of the words are connected.
- Have the children place the correct symbols for the adjective and noun above the adjective and noun written on their slip of paper. Also add symbols for the articles.
- Introduce the symbol (the small pink rectangle) that shows us the joining word.
- Then have the children read everything to see if it makes sense.
(Photo shows the phrases and conjunctions put together using the prepared labels.)
- The directress can then change all of the noun phrases and place them in a different order.
- Have the children read everything again to show them that it still makes sense.
- Repeat the changing of the order of the noun phrase to again prove this point.
- Have the children replace all of the material in turn.
