An approach to sentence building with colour coded stages for parts of speech: subjects (who), verbs (what doing?), objects (what?), plus further stages for adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions and negatives. Some students will use colourful semantics to prompt spoken communication about stories: others will use it to help them structure sentences for writing. Prompts can include pictures from storybooks, or real-life photos of familiar people and activities.
