Building Cupcakes ~ Building Language

These free printable cupcakes from the delightful blog Volume 25 are perfect for playing and learning.
  1.  To teaching prepositions to early language learners  use sentences like “cake in”, “icing on”, “cherry on”.
  2.  For the more advanced child add colours to the sentence e.g. “chocolate cake in”, “pink icing on”.
  3.  For children with difficulties expressing themselves, have them tell you what they are going to make e.g. “I would like a chocolate cupcake, with pink icing and a cherry on top”.
  4.  For children with difficulties understanding instructions have them follow your directions e.g. “find the chocolate cupcake” “put the pink icing with sprinkles on the top” “put a red cherry on the pink icing”.

If you have concerns regarding your child's speech or language development and would like to know more about what to expect for your child's age, feel free to visit Small Talk Speech Pathology Website and follow the links to the email address. All questions will be answered as soon as possible.

keep calm 
bake on!
