*Download the free sample in the preview!*Word associations are an important skill for students to learn. If they have poor language skills, understanding how and why things go together is very difficult for them. I have many students who have difficulty making word associations at the simplest level-this is why I created this unit.
As you go through this unit with them use this script “A _____ goes with a ______ because _____________.” This repetitive script will help them learn a pattern and hopefully generalize why things go together.
There are 39 word associations (three per page) in this unit ranging from simple to a little more challenging, but with the picture cues it should be easier for them to figure out. Use the data sheet at the end of this unit to record progress.

"I love that this helps students to say why words are associated. I have many students who can pick out or name items that go together, but they can't explain their thinking. This is a perfect, repetitive way to practice this skill."
