This activity includes a printable matrix for giving directions to your student to follow, such as "Put 3 yellow circles in square B-5.” Students work to make their matrix look like yours (either a pre-made one included or one you create yourself). You can easily increase or decrease the complexity of the directions to make it work for your students' current level and goals. You can also integrate expressive language by switching "jobs" and letting the student be the “teacher” by giving you the directions. Kids love this! You could also use this activity for groups.
This activity has so many possible uses, including:
-Critical element directions for students with hearing loss
-Following multi-step directions
-Using descriptive language
-Increasing length of utterance
-Understanding and using concepts of color, size, quantity, and position
-Carry-over of articulation goals into structured conversation
