COVE Targets expanded
A few examples of how you might develop the targets within the classroom
Help me recap what I’ve just done by asking questions
Whatever you all do in the day, once you’ve done it then talk about the activity and ask questions to encourage the child to say sentences about the activity. You can model specific sentence structures.
Help me answer ‘who, doing, where’ questions using language through colour
Use a language through colour prompt strip to then be reminded to use the 3 key words in response to the specific question
Help me regulate the loudness of my voice using a three point scale
Adapt the 5 point scale to use 3 points- 1: too quiet, 2: just right, 3: too loud. Enable the child to learn what loudness is which level and then use the number or a visual prompt to remind the child what loudness level they should use
