Colourful Semantics: The Three Little Pigs

The Three Little Pigs themed colourful semantics. The cards help struggling speakers and writers to retell a familiar tale, giving them more confidence when they write.

Colourful semantics is an approach created by Alison Bryan. It is a great way to support children who struggle to write independently.

Colourful Semantics helps children to:

•Develop a wider vocabulary

•Make sentences longer

•Develop use of nouns, verbs, prepositions and adjectives

•Improve story telling skills

The colour scheme relates to the types of words in a sentence: Who? (noun) Doing? (verb) What? (object) Where? (location). Children use the strips included to help them structure their own sentences.

This pack contains fairy tale specific vocabulary, including:

4 who - noun/person cards

9 doing - verb cards

9 what - noun/object cards

4 where - noun/place cards
