"This or That" Choice Card

"This or That" Choice Card

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -”This or That” card, pictured above; roughly 3.5 by 7 inches and 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed, -Over 200 pictures of common activities in the home and school setting (in PDF format and 1.5 by 1.5 inches each with 20 pictures to a page) *Picture categories include common home activities, school activities, food/snack items, calming activities, and toys/reinforcing items ►How to Use◄ Giving children choices makes them feel like they have control and power over what they do. Although some children easily go along with teacher or parent directives, others need to feel that they have some control over their activities. Allowing children to make their own choices is a skill that they will need to acquire as they grow. This visual prompt assists in doing just that through the use of simple, concrete pictures of activities and task choices. It is especially helpful for stubborn students or children who engage in rigid behaviors. Simply select two task pictures included in the instant download (for example; art or music, wash dishes or take out the trash, recess or center time, etc.) and allow your student to select which one they’d like to complete first. This card can also be adapted for use in the home environment. It is compact enough to transport in your purse in order to assist in generalizing behavior across multiple settings. This card is especially helpful when performing activities of daily living in the community that are difficult for your child, such as going to the grocery store or running errands. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

Behavior Bucks Classroom Management Game (Token Economy)

Behavior Bucks Classroom Management Game (Token Economy)

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -All 3 denominations ($1, 5, and 10) of behavior bucks displayed in the thumbnail -Reinforcement chart that serves as a visual to remind children what they are working towards *Behavior Bucks are roughly 2 by 4.5 inches each, with 6 behavior bucks to a page. Reinforcement chart is 8.5 by 11 inches. Both files are 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed. ►How to Use◄ This game helps to remind students that working hard, listening to the teacher, and behaving appropriately are things that should be rewarded. Children perform better on tasks whenever an incentive is provided, which is where this product comes in! The gist is this: Good behavior is rewarded with behavior bucks. Behavior bucks can be traded for access to a variety of rewards (including activities or inexpensive items) in return for good behavior. This game can be suited for any of your classroom management needs! The rewards are completely up to you! Tangibles (like pieces of candy or access to computer games) or activities (such as being the classroom leader, or being able to sit next to a friend), can be used with this game. Rewards will be most reinforcing when tailored towards individual student preferences. (See the Reward Survey in my shop if you’d like to purchase a survey that identifies what is most reinforcing to each of your students for $1)! Reward good behaviors with behavior bucks more frequently when first implementing this game into your classroom routine. As your students become familiar with the game, you can stretch the amount of time between delivery of behavior bucks for good behaviors or increase the amount of behavior bucks needed in order for students to receive rewards. This product can be adapted to suit academic needs as well, such as homework or worksheet completion (for example, the child receives one behavior buck per 5 math problems completed, or one behavior buck per correct spelling word), or remaining actively engaged during instructional time (for example, one behavior buck each time a child participates in a discussion or remains attentive to the teacher during a lesson). ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth. This purchase is strictly for non-commercial use only. You may print and use in your home, business, or public place but may not resell, reproduce, distribute by electronic means or profit in any way from the design.

The Waiting Game (Self-Control/Turn-Taking Visual)

The Waiting Game (Self-Control/Turn-Taking Visual)

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -”The Waiting Game” card, pictured above (8.5 by 11 inches), -Semi-transparent Clocks sheet, pictured above (8.5 by 11 inches) *Both files are 300 pixels per inch (ppi), ensuring crisp quality when printed! ►How to Use◄ Younger children and children with ADHD experience significant difficulty with blurting out and waiting their turn to participate in an activity or conversation. Although frustrating, it is important to remember that they are not doing it on purpose. Impulse-control problems can be mostly neurological in nature (i.e. children with ADHD often have lower levels of dopamine, which can lead them to reflexively respond to their environment by disregarding the social norms of waiting their turn. Younger children also have difficulty taking turns because they have not properly developed the impulse control skills that come as they mature). Reminding children to stop interrupting using verbal means in front of the entire class can be embarrassing to a child with ADHD or impulse-control issues. This visual prompt serves as a reminder by using simple, concrete pictures in a discrete way. Simply display this visual to your child or student and explain to them that you would love to hear their input and have them participate in activities with the group; however, it is important that everyone gets the opportunity to participate. Hand your child or student three of the semi-transparent clocks included in this digital download and instruct them to place a clock in the corresponding position on the Waiting Game Card each time a friend/peer provides an answer. After three peers have engaged in the activity or conversation, your student is now able to engage as well! In order to reinforce The Waiting Game even more, it may be helpful to reward your child or student each time they wait the appropriate amount of turns. Once they have become accustomed to The Waiting Game, you can fade the rewards slowly. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth. This purchase is strictly for non-commercial use only. You may print and use in your home, business, or public place but may not resell, reproduce, distribute by electronic means or profit in any way from the design. Unlimited amount of copies can be made for your personal use.

Imperatives - Agony Aunt

Imperatives - Agony Aunt

Here is a complete lesson that is fully differentiated and has clear links to the PSHE curriculum too. This lesson was observed by Ofsted and went down very well. Used as a lesson on imperatives with KS3 SEND students, they become agony aunts and answer a dilemma by writing a response. It could used successfully with UKS2, LKS3 and EAL students too! Download includes: WALT and differentiated WILFs (purple = HA, gold = MA and Blue = LA) 3 differentiated letters for the students to respond to (included on presentation slides) Differentiated Bingo Sheets *Bingo sheets and differentiated letters are included as slides after the presentation! I hope it goes well, and more importantly, saves you some crucial time! Please review with feedback and suggestions! I’d really appreciate it.

Instructions Introduction - Spy Guide

Instructions Introduction - Spy Guide

This is a short unit for refreshing using the language of instruction or a simple introduction to. Included: A colourful PowerPoint presentation, complete with WALTs and differentiated WILFs. A fun ‘How to Be a Spy’ guidebook template I created this for my KS4 SEND class. They really loved it. It was a revision topic more than anything else, so didn’t get too much into the nitty gritty. It would suit upper KS2, lower KS3 and EAL students too! The lesson involves a collaborative discussion-based starter, a challenge opportunity and two self-assessment traffic light points to gauge understanding. It could easily run over to two lessons, so could save planning. Please review with feedback or suggestions- I’d really appreciate it. I hope it will afford you a bit of extra (and very well-deserved) time for yourself.

Imperative Verbs (Cooking)- Instructions

Imperative Verbs (Cooking)- Instructions

This is a fully resourced, fully differentiated and high-quality 9 document lesson that only takes about 5mins of prep time, depending on how fast you are with scissors! It’s based around creating recipes from random ingredients. Students will use imperative verbs to write recipes. I created it for my KS4 SEND class but it would work a treat for primary, early KS3 and EAL learners too. It could quite easily work as a fun transition activity on an open/taster day etc. I tried to make it as visual and fun as possible- Instructions isn’t the most exciting of topics! I used it for an observation and it was graded as Outstanding. You could easily extend it to include writing restaurant reviews or using some drama etc. Included: Lesson Plan - includes WALT, differentiated WILFs, primary national curriculum targets and differentiated ability group information. 3x worksheets (fully differentiated HA, MA and LA) PowerPoint - visual with WALT, WILFs and opportunities for self assessment and challenge. Starter cut-and-stick matching activity, which can then be used as a support sheet for the main task (you could differentiate this further by scrambling the words for HA, etc.) Plenary cards Differentiated food lists for tasks …all you need is some envelopes! Hopefully, it will save you some time planning and mean treating yourself to that glass of wine, extra boxset session or bath. Please take the time to leave some feedback letting me know how it worked for you and if you can suggest any improvements. I’d really appreciate it. N.B. I’ve left it how I use it, really- my class are far too competitive to have red, amber and green groups- they’d figure out who’s top and who’s bottom very quickly and it would cause no end of bother, hence why I have purple, gold and blue groups instead. I hope it’s straightforward!

Neurodiversity Strengths Checklist - useful for SEND and INCLUSION departments

Neurodiversity Strengths Checklist - useful for SEND and INCLUSION departments

Psychometric and neurocognitive assessments are important when assessing need. But what about individual strengths? My background is in neuroscience although I also work as an Assistant SENCo within my local school. I wanted to design a useful tool so assessing neurocognitive strengths would be easy for individuals without a neuroscience background. Once these are found then designing bespoke intervention becomes an easier task. While some neurodiversities can make certain tasks more difficult, they can equally be of benefit in other areas. Neurodiverse minds have a great many strengths and schools need various tools to help them recognise what they are for each individual. The NSC is a non-diagnostic tool that can help professionals working in schools identify where the neurodiverse strengths are for each individual student. Neurodiversity assumes everyone everywhere has neurodiverse strengths. The ethos behind the NSC is that it is down to each professional within every school to do everything reasonably possible to search for these strengths and attempt to develop them in a proactive and positive way in order to develop the students learning abilities. I hope people find it useful.

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.

Reward Survey

Reward Survey

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -A 2 page reinforcement survey (in PDF format) -A scoring key for teachers including directions for interpreting answers (also in PDF format) ►How to Use◄ Have you noticed that some of your students do not respond to even the coolest, most unique classroom rewards? That’s because what’s reinforcing to some children may not always be reinforcing to others. This is what makes every child unique, and also why a reinforcement survey comes in handy. A reinforcement survey can provide valuable insight regarding what type of rewards and incentives your students prefer by allowing each child to give you direct feedback from their own perspective. These surveys are simple to administer and interpret, but the data it provides is invaluable. Ultimately, a reinforcement survey serves the purpose of assisting you when you need to know what motivates a student, what kind of rewards they prefer, and what they will be likely to work for! This reinforcement survey can be used with your entire class at the beginning of the year in order to get to know your students,’ as well as for the creation of a classwide incentive system. Reinforcement surveys can also be used with specific students who may be exhibiting problem behaviors to determine what a student wants to earn in order to increase appropriate classroom behaviors or develop a behavior plan. Simply have students complete the survey and then interpret their answers using the scoring key provided in this download. ► 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.
