- Miniature environment.
- Object labels.
- Cards with prepositions.
- Long strips on which phrases are printed.
- The child is given an object label, which he/she reads, then gets the object and places the symbols over the words.
- The same child does the same for a second object.
- Then the directress gives him/her a preposition card to place between.
- He matches the symbols to the preposition.
- The child puts the objects in the indicated relationship and copies the words into his journal and adds the symbols.
- Those cards are removed but the objects remain as the children each place objects in special relationships.
- Each time the result of this exercise is different.
- When the children work alone they choose the cards randomly.
- With the long strips, each child in turn takes one, reads it, executes the command, lays out the symbols and copies it down.
- Again the objects remain but the labels are removed as the child finishes copying.
