Facilitate and Encourage

Facilitate and Encourage Is the student attempting to find matches in a haphazard way? The student has a limited number of clicks to find a match. The more they click around randomly looking for a sound match, the more clicks they lose and the less progress they will make. The student needs at least one point remaining once all the matches have been made in order to advance to the next level. Clicking randomly will decrease the number of points more quickly than using a pattern. Listen with the student and observe them as they complete the task. Guide the student in using the following strategies. • Teach the student to use a left-to-right, top to bottom strategy. After clicking the first sound, the student should hold that sound in their memory while they go leftto-right seeking the matching sound. Clicking in a pattern can help the student remember the sound for each location on the screen. • Have the student remember the first sound and then click until they find the matching sound. If the student can’t remember the first sound, have the student click the location again to commit it to memory. • Have the student continually whisper the first sound clicked until they locate the matching sound. When the student finds the match to the sound they are whispering, have them go back and click the original location to complete the match. Repeat this process with the next sound. 94 Whalien Match Teacher Manual
