MEUK Accredited Schools Day 2012 – Language as a Key to Unlocking the Child’s Development Question Game Chose a simple sentence with a subject, object and verb. The verb should be active and should not change entirely when you put it in the past, like go and went. Clarify the sentence with two questions ‘Carol baked a cake’ Who baked a cake? What did carol bake? Ask Questions around the Verb How did Carol bake a cake? When did Carol bake a cake? Where did Carol bake a cake? Why did Carol bake a cake? Ask Questions around the Subject Who was Carol? Ask Questions around the Object What kind of cake did carol bake? Reflect back the full sentence for their thoughts. At the end we might give a little summary pulling together some of the ideas.
