Non-Example Task Cards: Level 2
These task cards really ensure that the learner has a mastery of “not”. To the right, there are two pictures comparing the Level 1 and Level 2 sets. In the Level 1 set, there are four pictures to choose from. Based on those pictures, many students are able to infer the correct answer. In this Level 2 deck, there are only 2 choices. The student has to have a sound understanding of “not” as they are not able to use context to infer. To generalize this task, I often use picture cards that I have around the classroom and make my own sets of 2 for increased trial diversity. These task cards (if laminated) are great for centers/independent work to have the student circle their answer with a dry-erase marker.
Occupation and Recipe Negation Task Cards
These task cards are a favorite of mine and the students! The occupation task cards have the student identify the item that the occupation does not need. These are especially difficult because there is no picture of the occupation. Student’s must rely on previously mastered knowledge of that job. The recipe cards follow an identical format. Students LOVE to get silly and imagine the item they don’t need in the recipe. These cards are challenging and perfect for life-skills instruction/classrooms as well as centers, independent work, and therapy sessions. With lamination, the students can circle their answers which they usually find to be very motivating!
