How to Prepare:
- Print out activity and laminate activity for long-term use.
- Cut out individual robot parts and velcro together. A model robot is included to use as a reference.
- Cut out target words and possessive ‘s playing piece.
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 questions like, “What’s that?” or “Whose nose is that?”
- Then, prompt your client or child to use the possessive ‘s playing piece to 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?”
