- Remove the control cards from the level 5. These are kept in the left-hand folder.
- Lay the first set out in a vertical or horizontal row.
- The second set of cards and labels are kept in the right hand side pocket.
- Begin with a folder from an artist that you have previously spoken about.
- Place the control cards in a vertical row saying each artist’s name out aloud as well as the name of the painting, as you handle each painting.
- Remove the second set and place each one besides the identical painting.
- Remove the name cards and select each artist’s name and the name of the painting, by consulting the control set. Place each name card below the painting.
- When the layout is complete, point out to the child that each pair of paintings and names are identical.
