Visual Aids

 

Three visual representations of red apples

What is it?

Pictures, videos, realia (objects used in real life that students can touch/smell/etc, which can help visual/kinesthetic learners, e.g., bringing in a real apple) to aid learning.

Where is it found?

Bring in items/visuals that pertain to your lesson. You can have a stack of laminated paper printouts, pictures ready to project on the SMART Board, and/or objects you bring.

How do I use it?

Use visual aids when introducing new vocabulary to give context to the students. You can use visuals to help with classroom management as well, e.g., hold up a “quiet” sign to get the room to listen or “circle” sign for them to move to a different position.
