Book Description

Spot What’s Missing Language Cards are designed to promote language skills through understanding the concept of ‘missing’. Comprising of 48 large flashcards, each pairs of scenes includes one card showing the original scene and another with either one, two, three or four things missing. The differences between each pair of cards have to be both identified and explained and the different levels of difficulty encourage a child's progress in simple stages. 

The cards are brightly coloured with appealing illustrations for young children, showing scenes such as the seaside, snow, farm, house, garden and countryside. The second edition includes updated illustrations and additional guidance for non-specialists on how to use the cards in different ways to encourage a child’s observation, attention and expressive language development in response to ‘wh’ questions.

These fun and easy to use cards are ideal for anyone working with young children to develop their vocabulary, verbal understanding and listening skills.

Intended for use in educational settings and/or therapy contexts under the supervision of an adult. This is not a toy.
