2. Match the pictures Begin by deciding ‘Who’ is doing the action, i.e. is it a man, boy, etc. The person is surrounded by an orange border. Drag the visual to match it to the appropriate box. If you choose the incorrect visual it will slide back to its original position so that you can try again. This is to allow for errorless learning. Once you have completed the person box you will be presented with a set of visuals for actions. Match the appropriate action to the empty yellow box. If you are working on person, action & object sentences, then, you will be presented with a set of green object visuals. Match these to the empty green box. Now you have completed your sentence. The complete sentence will now appear.
