These materials were designed for preschool, pre-k, special education, ESL and SLP use!
There are pocket chart color cards for each of the ten community helpers highlighted in this set.
Coordinating Cards with things that go with each community helper, such as a fireman's hat, fireman's badge, fireman putting out a fire with a hose and the fireman by himself.
These are great for "things that belong together" sorting activities.
I love the action cards for pronoun and verb work in SLP setting.
The cards themselves are great for working with non-verbal kiddos too!
10 different "community helpers" cards, each with three cards that "go along" with that person's job!
Construction Worker (construction worker's hat, stop sign, construction worker digging a hole)
Dentist (dental instruments, dental x-ray, dentist giving an exam)
Farmer (farmer's hat, farmer's tractor, farmer riding the tractor)

Why these materials?
Learning to match related items might seem like a simple skill that all kids can figure out. However, being able to match items and explain why those items go together is important for cognitive skills and future literacy learning. By learning to match related items at an early age, preschoolers will be better prepared for both reading and math in the future. For example, children who are able to master the skills of matching in preschool will be well equipped to match letters to sounds in kindergarten. These picture matching cards can help you implement activities to teach preschool students to mix and match things that go together.
Use them in a small group setting.
Great for non-verbal SLP setting
Use whole group on a pocket chart
I designed these materials with the help of my special education teaching daughter and my two favorite SLP's ....who also happen to be my sisters!!!
