Five Ways of Looking is a series of card decks, semantic web boards, and activities designed to assess, and ultimately improve, a child’s ability to acquire, generalize and categorize vocabulary words. Five Ways takes 25 everyday words and presents them in cards at five different levels, ranging from the easiest to the most difficult for a child to identify.
- Level 1 (Photo with No Distraction)
- Level 2 (Photo with Distraction)
- Level 3 (Simple Drawing)
- Level 4 (Cartoon)
- Level 5 (Black & White Line Drawing)
The Semantic Web Boards, measuring 9 3/4” x 8 1/8″ (Sides A and B), provide a framework for teaching these vocabulary words. Use Side A to teach the words to the child, and then increase the level of identification difficulty. Use Side B to help the child tell the difference between the target word and non-target words. 125 cards in all!
