Early Learning I: Matching Colors

The Matching Colors program familiarizes the student with up to twelve common colors. When the student is using the keyboard, the teacher or parent should place the colors overlay on the keyboard with the red square over the "1" key or the "X" key.

The lower levels allow the student to see the colors displayed on the screen and to see the effects of pressing the labeled color keys. On the higher levels, the student is asked to match the color on the screen with a color on the keyboard. At first a specific color is shown, later the computer asks the student to pick it out from among several colors.

When a correct answer is given, the program displays the answer at the bottom of the screen. If a wrong answer is given, the answer is shown on screen, the student is corrected and given another chance to answer. After a specified number of wrong answers is given, the student is shown the correct answer and allowed to try again.

Matching Colors can be set to drill the student on any of 3 different sets of 4 colors each or a set of either 8 or 12 colors. Additionally, color pictures can be substituted for the default colored blocks. This activity is for the student who has mastered the basic colors and understands that, for example, an apple is red even if it has a green stem.

Interface Options:

Single- and dual-switch scanning are built-in (6 different ways), and special prompts allow blind students to use all levels of difficulty.
