This will allow students to learn more about the seasons. The students will learn about the seasons and what the weather is like in each of those seasons.The students will also learn terms associated with the seasons. I would use this set of cards when first introducing the seasons to a group of students on AAA in Special Education. This group of students would typically be the most severe group of students that we work with. From experience working with students in a severe classroom in the past, I have seen the need to multiple repetition when introducing new material. I would use these flashcards for the first week when I was introducing the seasons. First I would introduce the card, earth's axis. I would explain the relationship of this to the seasons. I would then introduce the four seasons. Next I would introduce the individual four seasons. I would then use the pictures as a visual aid to help the students identify the word for each season. I would then introduce how it feels outside during each season. I would refer back to the pictures when introducing the weather in each season. It is very important to daily review each season and the picture associated with the seasons. The students really need a firm grasp on this before moving on. After introducing the seasons and their pictures and the weather in each season, I would introduce temperature, thermometer, hot, and cold. I would explain the relationship between all four of these words. Each day, before teaching the new words associated with the seasons, I would reteach the four seasons and their pictures.
The reason that this is useful for student learning is because it allows for multiple types of learning. The students can learn through visually or audibly. This allows for the teacher to reach a greater population of students. This also helps to keep all students engaged. This is very important when working with students on AAA. These students need to be engaged throughout the entire lesson. I think this is why these cards could help keep the students engaged during the entire length of the lesson.
