Composition Cards: 3 Things You Should Know

1) What are composition cards?

Composition cards are paper cards with questions written on them, such as “What do you like to eat?” or “Who is your favorite teacher?”. These cards can be used to help children interactively develop their communication skills. Composition Cards are one of several tools available for parents and educators interested in creating opportunities for language learning with young children.

2) How do composition cards work?

Composition cards can be used alongside a variety of activities to help children develop their communication skills. Composition Cards are not only limited to “traditional” questions such as, “What do you like?” Composition Cards may also ask what the child is doing and where they live (e.g., “I am eating cereal at my house”). Composition Cards may also ask for a description of what the child is doing or where they are going (e.g., “I am walking to school with Grandma.”). Composition cards work well when paired with visual supports if needed. For example, you could have an image on one side and questions about it on the other, with Composition Cards. Composition cards are also helpful when working on social stories and scripts. They can be adapted to suit different scenarios or settings. The children may respond orally or in writing depending upon their needs.

3) Who should use composition cards?

Composition cards are appropriate for all children at any age. Composition cards can be used to teach receptive language, expressive language, social skills, and many other academic or functional communication targets.
