This activity focuses on teaching students functional academic words from the list of 100 "Signs Around You" from the Edmark curriculum.
Words 11-20 are featured in this activity: Men, Go, Elevator, Women, Hot, Closed, On, Cold, Up, Telephone.
Ideal for visual learners, the activity is differentiated with two sets of pictures to sort to the corresponding words. One set includes the word under the picture for additional support and the other set does not include the word beneath the picture, thus students must demonstrate comprehension of the words by sorting the pictures accordingly. Real photos are used with 6 different photo cards for each word to be sorted. Real photos are ideal for visual learners who benefit from concrete examples of the word.
This product was designed to be used in a special education classroom for students with autism and can be helpful in teaching non-verbal students these words. The focus of learning these functional words is to help special education students increase their independence and ability to navigate the community.
