Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

A resource I made for a mixed group of ks1 / ks2 children with autism / social communication needs. Aim is to develop greater understanding of feelings and to begin to develop awareness of other's feelings, also turn taking and attention and listening. Resource includes a feelings poster and 18 cards describing situations that have happened to an imaginary child - e.g. 'She has a wobbly tooth'. We discuss the various feelings an how children are feeling today. Cards are placed face down and children take turns to turn cards over. They consider how the person may be feeling. More able groups could be prompted / questioned to consider would everyone feel that way in that situation (some people can't stand having wobbly teeth, others get excited...) further developing theory of mind and understanding that people can feel differently about situations.

IB PYP Approaches to Learning Skills Task Cards Bundle

IB PYP Approaches to Learning Skills Task Cards Bundle

All of the Approaches to Learning skills ( formerly transdisciplinary skills) combined with reading, speaking, listening and drama! These printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the growth mindset directly within the Thinking, Research, Communication, Social and Self Management skills developed within the IB PYP’S Approaches to Learning. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think positively of themselves and others in various scenarios that are easily relatable to them. They are asked to reflect on situations that require analysing, synthesising, categorising and evaluating, present doubt, possible antagonism, confidence issues and other difficulties. As you help the children with these skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Teacher led – read aloud a card to a small group and have them interact with each other to solve the problem or scenario. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the social problems presented on the task cards. You will find over 100 task cards ready to print and go. Each skill is a separate PDF within a zip file. You can purchase them separately but with this bundle you save! And you get the entire set of classroom posters explaining the skills! You can find many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers PYPteachingtools.com

Oustanding SEND Support Plan and Whole School Rationale

Oustanding SEND Support Plan and Whole School Rationale

This is an excellent resources for SENCO's and Heads who need to demonstrate a system to show how all universal services are working together to deliver the outcomes of all children who have an EHCP or awaiting assessment for one . One of the key features identified in the SEND code of practice 2015 is working together across education, health and social care for joint outcomes. As a school it is required that we should ‘develop a joint understanding of the outcomes that their local population of children and young people with SEN and disabilities aspires to, and use it to produce a joint plan, which they then deliver jointly, and review jointly.’ The legal framework in relation to the code of practice indicated that under Section 25 of the Children and Families Act 2014 local authorities (Schools) should ensure integration between educational provision, health and social care provisions, where this would promote wellbeing and improve the quality of provision for disabled young people and those with SEN. (page 38 of the Code of Practice). As a result of the legal framework and Ofsted recomendation it was decided to devise a universal system where all provision / outcomes are identified and specific to the individual children at ………. School. Having discussed this with external professionals and researched what is identified as outstanding practice, I began to create a system that is universal with all stakeholders and acknowledges the views of the child and how to best support them. In reflection to the above a new whole school framework has been develop and I have worked closely with the Head of Care, Chair of governors, Educational Psychologist, LA SEND Department, …….. (Upper School SENCO), ……..(Team Teach Lead), ……. (PSA) to produce a system called (Individual SEN Support Plan).
