Syllables Set - Picture cards and game ideas to develop syllabification

Syllables Set - Picture cards and game ideas to develop syllabification

This is a collection of high-quality images which can be printed out as a card set. It is intended to be used as a resource for teaching auditory syllabification and the resource includes extensive game ideas and suggestions. All of the pictures are originals and are detailed, but not childish. This means they can be used with older learners without patronising them. The resource includes a set of the corresponding word cards, which can be used in a variety of ways, including as a matching game to develop vocabulary for English language learners. There are 25 pictures in total - 5 each of one, two, three, four and five syllable words.

All About Me Game, transition, new class

All About Me Game, transition, new class

A game I made for my small class of learners with autism. Suitable for any small group introduction - e.g. intervention group, speech and language, attention and listening. Learners throw a dice and move around the board. When they land on a question, they answer the question. I like to ask another member of the group a question relating to the answer, to encourage learners to pay attention to each other's answers - my children tend to have very little interest in each other! Supports social skills, attention and listening, turn taking. Used for specialist autism group but appropriate for any mainstream KS1 / KS2 group or older SEN group.

Truth or Dare - suitable for KS2 and KS3

Truth or Dare - suitable for KS2 and KS3

Simple game of 'Truth or Dare'. I have generally thought of this as an older game. But for promoting as a speaking activity to encourage reluctant learners or ESL students, it's super.I have played this with my summer school class consisting of a mixed group of year 3, 6 and 8 students in Spain. Some of the students in my group attend our British International School and some do not. However, the language level is quite good, but it is also a way of encouraging new language vocabulary and skills. I have included a game board, Truth question cards and forfeit cards. There is also a die template just in case you haven't got a handful of dice at the ready. My students also really enjoyed rolling an odd number to have to do a forfeit! They are pretty funny! This would be an ideal resource for ESL, EAL as well as English or PSHE. It's also something fun to play on a Friday afternoon in smaller groups when you just can't anymore.... LOL... Enjoy!
