Task card for visual support to complete a task

Task card for visual support to complete a task

This straightforward task card helps a pupil to understand when a task is complete. Write their name and what the task is on the sheet, then tick a box when each part is completed. This sheet shows 10 boxes to tick, but just cut off the second row if you want 5, or adapt it yourself for any other number. I have used this with tasks such as "Count out the right number of tokens" - I say "three", pupil counts out 3 tokens, then I tick the first box, and so on. Useful with children with autism, who sometimes struggle to understand when a task is complete. Suitable for laminating and use a whiteboard pen.

Daily Reflection Journal format and Presentation

Daily Reflection Journal format and Presentation

This was created for undergrad students but can easily be used for secondary school and upper primary students too. Even for younger students with some modification to the journal form. This is a presentation to explain the benefits of a reflection journal and how this particular one, which is easy to make quick to complete, works. The data collected by the journal can form the basis for one to one conferences with students weekly or monthly depending on how you schedule them in your classes.

Post It Notes in a Big Pile: Studying, Revision, Notes, Success

Post It Notes in a Big Pile: Studying, Revision, Notes, Success

I took these photos as I was writing my 'Primary School Diaries' novel, soon to be published on Amazon for ages 8 and up. As part of my planning I had stuck lots of post it notes on the wall to help me order my thoughts, and as I transferred the notes onto my computer, I scrunched each one up and threw it in a pile. The pile could look like failure, but to me it was a picture of success, or breaking down a big task into little bite size chunks, and the pile of screwed up paper growing as I achieved each little task. I hope these photos will inspire students with their own studying or challenges they face.
