Pictures and Text

Pictures of familiar objects and their printed labels e.g. Picture of a dog and the label 'dog'

Maybe borrow a book from home which the child likes and photocopy and then use as a picture resource .

1. Cut out or photocopy 5 pictures of items the child is familiar with. E.g. animals/food items/objects or people from Peter and Jane books.

2. Print labels for the items

3. Give the child one picture and one label.

4. Put the two together - point to the print and read it.

Give a reward for this activity because it is not intrinsically rewarding.

Increase to two pictures and two printed labels.

Model the correct match. Reward each correct match.
