Making Mince Pies for Christmas:- Life Skills - Visual Recipes and supplementary resources.

Making Mince Pies for Christmas:- Life Skills - Visual Recipes and supplementary resources.

Making Mince Pies for Christmas: This resource has 2 parts to it. Firstly you can EASILY make your own fruit mincemeat, and then use it to make mince pies, which make an excellent gift or a feastive treat to eat. This resource has 2 notebooks and 2 worksheets. The notebook is designed for the students to use it as a visual sequence when cooking. They have all the ingredients and utensils needed and then an easy to follow recipe. It has an inbuilt shopping activity so that the cooking can be integrated into a shopping program. Within the shopping part which encourages literacy skills, students can choose what they will buy and then make their own shopping list by either writing it or sticking the associated visual onto their shopping list. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match the ingredients as well as some writing sheets. There is a pairs game to reinforce the learning. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) for teaching life skills but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. On Tes I have created a Christmas resources which has fun activities to celebrate Christmas - check it out

Secret Mission Cards

Secret Mission Cards

This is a PowerPoint full of cards to be printed and laminated. I utilize in different ways: I give challenging students them so they focus during the lesson; I use them to stretch and challenge individual students; I like to leave them in books when I've marked them; stick them under chairs in the lesson. Some are very creative missions whilst others are used for behavior management. Whenever a student passes their secret mission, they receive a reward - a sweet, postcard or phone call home.

Easy to access EHCP front sheet including objectives and provision

Easy to access EHCP front sheet including objectives and provision

This is a sheet that I have created to summarise all of the information found in an EHCP document. I type the objectives and dos and don'ts onto the first sheet and then on the second sheet is a timetable for the week that allows you to map out provision. This has been very useful for holding teachers to account in ensuring that EHCP objectives are being worked towards and allows easy monitoring of progress towards achievement.

Australian Money: Halloween Music Store: buying Spooky Youtube Clips

Australian Money: Halloween Music Store: buying Spooky Youtube Clips

Halloween Music Store - Students can develop their money recognition skills and using money to buy things with these activities. It is the equivalent of the old class shop, but revamped to use the internet to 'purchase' music clips. I have given this music store a Halloween theme as Halloween is always very motivating. It was designed for Secondary students with special needs, but can be easily used for all students. It is an age appropriate Money Math activity for secondary students, where they are motivated to purchase their favourite music. I have included a word document, to help you change the music for your students tastes.
