Three Part Cards
created by Karen Briguglio

Antarctica Three Part Cards

How to use:

Cut cards out.  One card will be cut apart on the dotted lines.

The card with the name attached is the control card.  Teach the child using the control cards.
Lesson one.  Say, “this is a rose (and point to it), this is a carnation “(and point).
Lesson two.  Say, “can you show me the rose, can you show me the carnation.”
Lesson three.  Say, “what is this called (point to the carnation), What is this called (point to the rose)”

Start by laying out a few cards, then increase as child learns more.  Eventually, the child should be able to match all the cut cards.  .  After he is done, he checks his work with all of the control cards.

Also, a child can take alphabet manipulatives and spell the names on the cards and check his work with the controls.
