Leaf Picture Writing Frame, KS1-Y3, guided with Lesson Plan

Leaf Picture Writing Frame, KS1-Y3, guided with Lesson Plan

Children love the freedom of jotting down their leaf ideas all over a picture of one! This fun, relaxed writing stimulant will inspire everyone to have a go, especially with a relaxed, free-and-easy atmosphere, and some preliminary exploration and discussion of real leaves. Also an ideal way to help children connect with nature and seasons. The lesson plan involves going outside to look at trees and leaves, promoting physical wellbeing, too.

Season TEACCH Bundle - Independent Autism and SEND Activities

Season TEACCH Bundle - Independent Autism and SEND Activities

Save 25% with this Seasonal Bundle. Activities and tasks for your pupils with Autism! Includes early reading, writing and maths activities to help achieve those early targets and build on working independently! These are the individual resources included: Spring TEACCH Tasks £3 Summer TEACCH Tasks £3 Autumn TEACCH Tasks £3 Winter TEACCH Tasks £3 When using TEACCH tasks the task that is to be completed should be placed on the left hand side of the desk/workstation. The pupil then completes this task and places it on the right when completed. Having a clear visual for the pupil to identify where the finished tasks go is preferable. This clear structure allows the pupils to focus on the task they are completing and not be distracted by the work process. It is important to remember that when completing these tasks it is also about creating and building independence as well as success at the task, this is why the consistent work approach (working from left to right is so important) When using these tasks I would recommend using them for at least 4-6 weeks. For some children it may take up to a term for them to master the skill and be able to complete this independently.
