About this Resource

Here are 5 Projects: Project 1 & 2 – Sets 1 & 2 Matching Words to Pictures Game: In these 2 projects, the student can practise matching common symbols with words to build functional reading skills in a game format. Cards turn over when the correct match is made. Auditory feedback is provided when errors are made. The words targeted come from the POPARD Functional Words List 1 and include: stop, wait, danger, walk, women, men, exit, private, keep out and caution. This activity is appropriate for students of all ages who are building their functional reading skills. Project 3 – Matching Picture to Word: In this project, the student can practise reading the POPARD Functional Words List 1 in an errorless learning matching activity. The student is presented with a printed and spoken word and required to match it to the appropriate picture. If the correct picture is placed with the word, the picture stays in place and verbal reinforcement is given. If the incorrect picture is selected, it will be placed back in the picture bank and the student is encouraged to try again. The words include: stop, wait, walk, don’t walk, exit, out, entrance, in, danger, keep out, keep off, private, caution, high voltage, restrooms, women, men, girls, boys, ladies and gentlemen. This activity is appropriate for students of all ages who are developing functional reading skills.
