Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Includes 12 'storyboard' Nursery Rhymes: The Grand Old Duke of York, Row Row Row Your Boat, Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Miss Muffet, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Bo-Peep, Hickory Dickory Dock, Pat-a-cake and Itsy-bitsy Spider. Say the rhymes with the students, get them to listen and recite each line afterwards, ask them to order the 4 pictures for each nursery rhyme, then use the differentiated worksheets to assess their writing and listening skills. For the speaking, listening and writing worksheets we ask carers to let us know either during drop off or via email a couple of things their child has done over the weekend. We then ask the students what they did at the weekend, prompting other students to ask questions of their peers, and then do a recap by asking who did what to assess who was listening before getting the children to write either with help or independently what they did at the weekend.

Culture Club: France

Culture Club: France

My aim was to bring in a bit of my modern foreign languages background when teaching my special education class. It is Autism friendly - as there is a clear sequence/structure and lots of visual support. The idea is to ‘visit’ countries around the world, learning facts - using English skills for reading, comprehension and writing; learn some simple language, and sample the culture. This is an example - I hope you like it - if you do, check out my bundles, Europe and Asia!

The ideas are there, and games such as i went to the shop and bought… so simple yet engaging and fun, found interviews questions also to be fun, just write prompt cards.
