This unit lesson will lessen the difficulty students with special needs have learning about and understanding history. By researching family history, students with special needs will realize that history delves in the past and that everyone has a history that can be passed down to families, friends, and historians. The goals and objectives provide teachers with an outline of this approach. The suggested activities, starting with each student investigating the history of someone in his/her family which will be displayed and presented by the student to the class. This will provide a foundation from which to explore historical events by having each student identify any event in the local, state, national, or world history their relative might have witnessed or with which s/he was involved. The teacher then arranges these historic events into a timeline to acquaint the students with how to research and display historical events.
Folder activities are easy to make, store and reset for other students throughout the day. They are great for working on basic matching, letter recognition and initial sound skills in your special needs or early years classroom. This pack includes the printables and instructions to make 24 file folders for working on the letters of the alphabet. I love using file folders to give students extra practice for new skills as they are learning them with me first and then again during independent work to practice mastered skills. Task 1: Match letters to letters- I like to reinforce the sound these letters make as my students are completing this task. Task 2: Match pictures to pictures- initial sound with a specific letter. I like to use this as an opportunity to teach vocabulary as well as initial sounds. Instruction on how to make these folder activities are included in the PDF. You will need some velcro loops and hooks, square cut folders and laminating pouches. Alternatively, instead of creating individual folders for every letter, you can put all the activities in a binder. Thanks for looking :)
