> The Matchcards are great for teaching and reinforcing the objectives. There is one MatchCard for each of the objectives listed above.
Every week you will use the corresponding MatchCard to teach the objective. In addition, the students review 5 previously learned MatchCards two or three times per week. This game-like activity is a favorite activity of many students. The Instructor's Guide gives you more ideas on organizing and using the MatchCards.
