How Does It Work:
After deciding on cards you want to use- either those provided or by using the editable feature to make your own...
*Hide/Tape pictures around the room.
*Distribute recording sheets to students on clipboards (or have them lean on a hardcover book if you don’t have enough clip boards)
*Students look at the picture on the card- they record their answer (word, number, etc) on the sheet next to the picture
that corresponds to that picture.
*Differentiation can occur in many different ways:
~more/less picture cards
~Use the editable form to make picture cards for specific
~Have students work in pairs (high/low)
~use certain pictures for certain ability groups- modify recording sheet so that students that need specific practice with specific components are only recording for those pictures.
