Great as a digital therapy resource! Pull up the resource using the screen sharing feature. :) Use the pen feature to mark an X in each square!


This resource consists of 8 basic category-themed worksheets for addressing the skill of semantic feature analysis. It also contains one blank semantic feature analysis grid for coming up with your own items and features (or having the student come up with them!) This activity is great for improving higher-level expressive language skills such as comparing/contrasting, describing, and explaining word relationships. Students match nouns to applicable features such as category (ex: it's an insect), attributes (ex: has stripes), adjectives (ex: soft), locations (ex: found in the sky) and then mark the boxes with X's, checks, or pluses and minuses. Students can practice explaining their choices using complete sentences or discussing them if in a group; some features are not clear-cut and choices will need to justified (ex: "sweatshirt" and "could have strings.") Once features have been checked for each category item, students can be asked to compare/contrast any two of the items. They can also count how many features each set of items has in common and/or can come up with additional features that describe the items. The student can be required to explain relationships between words (ex: "How does an 'drum' go with 'round'?") using complete sentences that contain both target words.


This resource is included in my Semantic Feature Analysis Bundle, Word Retrieval Bundle and my Jumbo Bestsellers Bundle!
