Framework Indicators


  • Match to sample when given 1 shape.
  • Match to sample when given 2 shapes.
  • Match to sample when given 3 shapes.
  • WM Use laminated activity folders to match removable shapes.

Teacher Language

 

Make a statement

‘This is a shape’.

‘You are matching the shape’. 

Say and sign ‘same’.

 

Ask a question

‘Which one is the same?’

 

Correction/prompt

‘Try again’.

‘Look again’

‘Do they match?’

‘Are they the same?’

When carrying out any of the following teaching activities it will be necessary to use different levels of support as indicated in the guidelines table at the beginning of Number. Fade this support as the student works towards developing independence.

 

This goal is purely a matching activity. At this point we are not teaching identification or recognition of shapes. Shapes are used as symbols to be matched and to make students familiar with their form. The following table is an example of shapes that can be used to match. Teacher language as shown above should be used throughout the activity to reinforce the concept of matching through the use of the language ‘same’ and ‘different.’ Follow the sequence outlined in the table below.

 

Match to sample when given 1 shape

Errorless learning. (Provide only the correct option so there is no chance for error).

 

Match to sample when given 2 shapes

Teacher provides student with 2 shapes (one is the correct shape to be matched and one is the distractor). Teacher gives the student the shape to be matched and states ‘This is a shape. Which one is the same?’ ‘You are matching the shape’.

 

Match to sample when given 3 shapes

Teacher provides student with 3 shapes (one is the correct shape to be matched and two are the distractors). Teacher gives the student the shape to be matched and states ‘This is a shape. Which one is the same?’ ‘You are matching the shape’.
