Digital Flash Cards for the Recognition of Real-world Signs

Survival Signs and Symbols is designed for non-readers who need to learn the meaning of common community signs. A series of activities using digital flash cards gives students a variety of cues, both visual and aural, and the repetition they need to learn to recognize the signs. In ID mode, the back side of every sign explains what it is, and its purpose.

Survival Signs and Symbols Screens

Survival Signs and Symbols activities using flash cards include multiple choice (choose the small card that's the same as the large one), matching (draw a line between the left and right hand columns), and voice recording for the student to practice saying the word aloud. On the front of each card is the word (or word and picture for nouns), and on the back is a sentence containing the word in context. Color and speech both aid word recognition.

Survival Signs and Symbols lists can be printed as cards (1-8 per sheet) or as activity worksheets.

Survival Signs and Symbols allows you to create customized word lists for each of your students. The program tracks their answers automatically and provides you with a record of each student's progress. An options menu allows you to select:

  • the number of choices in each activity
  • which word list to use
  • controlled or random order
  • male or female voice
  • errorless learning, which permits only a correct answer
