Children with language delays often have trouble putting together simple sentences. We can help these children learn how to assemble a sentence by practicing simple structures, like the subject-verbobject structure. Here’s how we break down this type of sentence:
Subject—The person who performs the action
Verb—The action being performed
Object—The thing that is being acted upon.
Examples: Sally throws the ball. Carrie eats carrots.
Choose one worksheet to work on at a time and help the child practice saying the various sentences. Have the child touch each word as she says it out loud.
