Colourful Semantics Visual Cue Cards

Colourful Semantics Visual Cue Cards


Colourful Semantics is a structured language intervention designed to support the development of language and communication skills, particularly in children with speech and language difficulties. This resource includes visual cue cards to remind children of the colours for each type of word. It has the four standard colourful semantics colours for who, what doing, what and where but then also has four extra cards for how, who to, when and what like.


Why do you need this?

Colourful Semantics uses colour coded cards to help children to learn the important elements of a sentence and how to join them together in the correct order. By visually representing each part of the sentence with a specific colour, learners can better understand the structure and meaning of sentences, as well as the relationships between words.


How and when might you use this?

This approach is often implemented through a variety of interactive and hands-on activities, such as sentence building games, storytelling, and picture-based exercises. It can be tailored to the individual needs and abilities of learners, making it suitable for use in both classroom settings and speech and language clinics.


What’s included?

8 Visual cue cards for ‘who’, ‘what doing’, ‘what’, ‘where’, ‘what like’, ‘who to’, ‘how’ and ‘when’.
