Understanding associations is important for enhancing a student’s logical reasoning skills, which means using systematic steps to arrive at a conclusion. Logical reasoning skills assist with making important decisions, discerning the truth, problem-solving, creating new ideas and setting achievable goals.

Here are a few suggestions regarding how to use these flashcards:

Matching:
Place 4 to 6 flashcards on a table. Give another flashcard to the student and ask them to match it to its pair.

Naming the object and its association:
Show the student a flashcard and ask them to name the object in the image. Then ask them to name the item that goes with it. For example, if a student is shown the image of a pillow they are to say that “A bed goes with a pillow.”

Once your student has a good grasp of this set, here are a few suggestions to try:

Real-life examples:
Try using real-life objects, especially those that the student is familiar with. Place an array of 4 to 6 objects on a table (such as a paintbrush, bowl, sock and an envelope) and have its ‘go together’ on hand (eg paint, spoon, shoe and stamp). Pass one of the associated objects (eg the spoon) to the student and ask them to place it with the one it goes with on the table (eg the student is to place the spoon with the bowl)

Introduce new object pairs:
Gather object sets that are not included in the flashcard set (such as a toothbrush/toothpaste, plate/fork, swimsuit/goggles and coins/money box). Once again, ask the student to match an object handed to them with the one it ‘goes with’ on a table.

I am a speech language pathologist, working with teenagers who have a severe language disability. These pictures are great for my clients. The graphics are clear with no distracting backgrounds and the vocabulary is functional. I intend on buying more.
