Need to work on time concepts? Check out these new Time Preposition Task Cards I created to work on those tricky “in”, “on”, and “at” time concepts. I created 2 sets. Level 1 has visuals to pair with each sentence. Level 2 has some of the same sentences as Level 1 without the visual plus I added more examples to Level 2. Each time the student has to determine the correct “in”, “on”, or “at” concept to complete the sentence. IN – years, months, seasons, weeks ON- days, dates, weekend, holiday AT – exact time, night, noon, holiday period
Time Preposition Task Cards Level 1 contains 72 card. Time Preposition Task Cards Level 2 contains 96 cards.
Just like my other task cards you can use them during direct instruction time, therapy sessions, or as at an independent task center. I recently used both set of these task cards during some small group speech therapy sessions with my students and here is how I use them. You can just give your student a card and have your student read the question or you can read it to them if they can’t read or are non-verbal. Then the student can either verbally say “in”, “in”, or “at” to complete the sentence, point to the correct “in”, “on”, or “at” words on the card or find the words on their AAC system. This is great practice for your student with AAC devices to use them.
I also set it up where I wrote “in”, “on”, and “at” on index cards and placed the cards on the table. Then I read the question to my student and had him/her determine if the card went in the “in”, “on”, or “at” pile.
Again, this works for either set of cards. They need to figure out which time preposition to use in the sentence.
When using this at an independent task center another option besides placing the cards in correct “in”, “on”, or “at” pile is to have your student circle the answer or use a paper clip to mark the correct in/on/at answer. Just check the student’s answers after completing a set number of cards. If the students are ready to use these cards at an independent station they should get most of them correct.
