Pixon Teaching Tip: Pixons can be used as teaching
materials for picturing the metaphors behind Unity® icon sequences. The
word for this week is “make.” Compare the Pixon to the icon sequence
. Teach the meaning of the word “make” using cookie cutter props with
raw cookie dough or bread. You can “make” cookies for the holidays or
sandwiches for a party. Extend the meaning making holiday cards, making
your bed, making an art project, making up after fighting, and making up
a story, etc.
Intervention Planning: Practice the word “make” in two-word
phrases, such as “make some,” “to make more,” “making it,” and “made
that.” Practice future, present and past tense in sequential activities
(I will make it, I am making it, I made it). Check out the Language Lab: Core Words App from PRC to practice the word “make.”
