ANIMALEASE An Introduction to Music Making, Notation and Rhythm (With MP3 Audio)

ANIMALEASE An Introduction to Music Making, Notation and Rhythm (With MP3 Audio)

Music making should be fun, irrespective of age and ability. The purpose of this guide is to provide the foundations of rhythm that can be used in a variety of learning environments. It will introduce a person to musical notation using animal names that will already be familiar to them. It works by chanting the animal names in time to a given pulse. Linking this then to a group of written musical notes to sing, tap, bang, shout, or whistle. This is not a step by step guide and we encourage anyone who uses this book to develop their own ideas using the framework. No two Animalease sessions will be the same and nor should they be. Children often see this method as a game (this is completely fine), and as it uses information that they already possess, the pupil has less to think about. This results in a more relaxed performance and learning environment. The focus should always be on active music making (but ensure that it is always in time). We have found over the years of using this method that the vast majority of pupils would be able to perform the following information in a short space of time. Before using this method, many pupils thought that making sense of written music would be very difficult. Pupils already familiar with the conventional counting method also found it useful and, in many cases, preferred it. We feel that the use of the animal names not only helps the pupil but also makes it accessible for someone who may not be confident to deliver music lessons, making Animalease a great tool for many primary school teachers. This resource comes with MP3 Files for demonstration purposes. Enjoy! Steve & Ben

Phonics, clothes peg cards to support reading of phase 2 phonics

Phonics, clothes peg cards to support reading of phase 2 phonics

Children read the word and attach clothes peg onto the appropriate picture. To reduce the possibility of guess work, many of the pictures are of items which are similar to the word if read incorrectly, for example ‘feel’ shows pictures for ‘fall’, ‘feel’ and ‘feet’. Three sets of cards are in pack, 15 cards in each set. Cards need trimmed and ideally laminated. I designed these for my learners with autism / ADHD as a more interactive way to practice reading, but they are also suitable for KS1 / SEN.

Emotion TEACHING Card Set

Emotion TEACHING Card Set

The Emotion TEACHING Cards are a set of bright, colorful cards that are designed to help children identify emotions that are positive, in-between and negative. This set comes with two instruction and idea cards for teachers, and then six cards for each of the three emotions. Each emotion set is represented by a different color and comes with:\ an intro card that explains how that emotion makes you feel and a matching ocean reference a card that shows photographs of faces that represent the emotion a card that points out the facial features of the emotion a card that presents a vocabulary for the emotion a card that says what you might do when experiencing that emotion a card that suggests appropriate forms of action for each emotion These cards were designed to support children with Autism, who may have trouble identifying their own feelings, or recognising the feelings of others just by looking at their facial expression. Over time, these cards could assist children to associate the expressions they’ve seen on the cards, with the faces of those they are interacting with. They are meant to be cut out, assembled and fastened with a lanyard or ring, so that they can be either worn by parents or teachers, or be hung up in a place where children are able to access them when they need to. This card set beautifully compliments the How Am I Feeling Right Now? poster and the How Do I Feel? Emotion Cards that I also have listed. (The cards shown in preview are only SOME of the complete set you will receive on download) Thank you for shopping at LittlePeopleLove!

Interactive Behavior Contracts

Interactive Behavior Contracts

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -5 fill-in-the-blank worksheets for students to choose a replacement behavior and reward to work for (in PDF format) ►How to Use◄ A behavior contract is a simple behavior management tool which utilizes positive reinforcement. Simply put, a behavior contract pairs positive behaviors that you would like to see your student perform with rewards that he or she can obtain when they engage in the positive behavior. A few tips on implementation: The positive behavior listed on the behavior contract should take the place of a negative behavior being exhibited by your student, and be stated in positive, goal-oriented terms. For example, a replacement behavior for students who have difficulties talking out of turn could be “I will raise my hand when I need to say something” instead of “I will not talk out of turn.” A replacement behavior for a student who engages in aggressive behaviors towards his or her peers could be “I will keep my hands to myself” instead of “I will not hit or pinch others.” Although the teacher should decide which specific behaviors to select for the behavior contract, allowing your student to offer his or her input regarding the rewards established by the contract will make the student more likely to abide by the terms of the behavior contract. If students do not abide by the terms in the contract, it could be that they did not play a big enough role in the creation of it. Picking an individualized reinforcement that incentivizes your student to engage in appropriate behaviors is key. A reinforcement survey, which can be purchased for $1.00 in my shop, is often helpful to determine what is most reinforcing for each of your students. Allow your students to color a single picture or move objects along a path each time they engage in the predetermined appropriate behavior. Every child will react differently to reward systems. Some children need very little incentive to perform appropriate behaviors, while others will need rewards delivered at a very frequent rate in order to alter maladaptive behaviors. When the latter is the case, teachers can alter the contract terms to make the goals easier to obtain. By doing this, students can obtain their rewards at a faster, more frequent rate. Once they demonstrate that they can consistently engage in the appropriate behavior, teachers can gradually increase the complexity of the replacement behavior or reduce the rate of reward delivery. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

Product is 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed. ►How to Use◄ A picture communication system is an alternative form of communication utilized by children with speech delays/impairments, as well as children on the autism spectrum, and children who struggle to convey their needs and wants. There is vast data to support the use of picture exchange systems as a means of facilitating future verbal communication. Additionally, the exchange of pictures is often preferred over sign language because pictures are universal, whereas sign language can only be used as a form of communication between two parties who understand sign. Once files are printed, cut them into individual pictures, and place velcro on the back of each picture. Use in conjunction with a binder and Velcro strip to allow your child to create sentences with the pictures. If you do not wish to add velcro to this product, simply allow children to select from the array of pictures, based on their needs, and hand you the individual card. This product can be used in conjunction with the other products in my shop. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth. This purchase is strictly for non-commercial use only.

About me board game for SEN

About me board game for SEN

A really simple board game I’ve used with SEN classes, uses widget symbols to aid understanding. Can be used as a transition activity for 2 students to get to know each other or to build social skills in asking questions and listening to the answers.
