Colourful semantics is an approach created by Alison Bryan. It is aimed at helping children to develop their grammar but it is rooted in the meaning of words (semantics).
Colourful semantics reassembles sentences by cutting them up into their thematic roles and then colour codes them.
The approach has 4 key colour coded stages. There are further stages for adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions and negatives.
Useful for children who are struggling with basic grammar
