    2. Demonstrate to the students the sign for "car". Explain the fact that the sign for "car" illustrates the driving of a car. Make sure all the students can correctly sign the word "car" as they say it.
    3. Now show the students the word "car" and explain that "this is the word for car". Have the students say and sign the word "car" again as you hold a word card next to the toy car. Then put a word card for "car" in the pocket chart below the picture of a car.
    4. Do the same matching activity described in Lesson 1 but this time add the word "car".
