How to Use?
First, use a mirror and identify your arms, eyes, head, nose, and mouth. Then, identify these parts on the robot.
- Target possessive ‘s by pointing to a part of the robot and asking, “What’s that?” (You can also ask, “Whose nose is that?”
- Then, prompt your client to use the possessive ‘s playing piece and fill-in/say, “That is the robot’s nose.”
- (Optional) Create 3 robots and assign them each a different name. This allows multiple opportunities for possessive ‘s to be targeted. For example, point to Johnny the Robot’s arms and ask your client, “Whose arms are those?” Then, point to Kelly the Robot’s mouth and ask, “Whose mouth is that?”
