It focuses on Blue Mountains in Sydney, but you can easily change that feature to your local mountains. It assists students in using maps.

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. There is an accompanying visual symbol board to print.

Phonics clothes peg cards, KS1 / Autism / ADHD / SEN

Phonics clothes peg cards, KS1 / Autism / ADHD / SEN

Children read the word and attach clothes peg onto the appropriate picture. To reduce the possibility of guess work, many of the pictures are of items which are similar to the word if read incorrectly, for example ‘scare’ shows pictures for ‘scar’, ‘scare’ and ‘share’. Three sets of cards are in pack, 15 cards in each set, so 45 cards in total. Cards need trimmed and ideally laminated. I designed these for my learners with autism / ADHD as a more interactive way to practice reading, but they are also suitable for KS1 / SEN.
