- This lesson is designed for 1:1 instruction with a teacher or therapist
Then tell the student it is their turn.
Choose a card (for example, police officer, #89) and place it on the table facing your student.
Ask your student to tell you about the occupation shown on the card, using the name of the job in your statement. For example, “Tell me about the police officer.”
As your student becomes more familiar with this activity and the occupations, encourage them to identify aspects of the worker’s job that are not readily apparent from the photo.
For example, “The police officer can help you if you are lost”; “The police officer will respond if you call 911”; “The police officer arrests people who break the law”, etc.
Repeat for the remainder of the cards.
Shuffle and repeat.
