I have many years teaching, specialising in Special Educational Needs. I hope you find that my resources are easy to use and practical that you can use them again and again. Building up a resource kit that you can use multiple times will save you so much time. I love using games to teach, so I hope your students will have fun whilst learning.

Art Initial Assessment (Special Needs) with observations tick sheet

(0)
A great initial assessment for your first art lesson with new students. To assess dexterity, colour recognition, colour blindness, drawing skills. It is important that the student has a go themselves and if they can’t manage something they are reassured to move on. Have a range of different mediums and paper ready as an extension exercise for those who finish quickly. They can then be getting on independently on some free art whilst you and support staff are observing everyone else. Handy additional observations tick sheet to use with assessment.

Washing Hands Bingo

(0)
An engaging Bingo Game, with calling cards and Bingo tokens. **Aim- To learn the correct way to wash hands and promote good hand hygiene. Objectives: To encourage social participation. Develop numeracy and literacy skills, speaking and listening, communication. To increase concentration & thinking skills, memory, hand and eye coordination. To make choice, recognise sign/symbol. Includes enough cards for whole class of up to 30 learners (pdf format- 32 pages). Cut out calling cards and tokens, laminate to make durable. Lesson ideas: Demonstrate the correct sequence of washing hands then ask the learners to follow your example. You could also show a video clip. I usually use this resource at the end of a session (i.e., if it was a cookery lesson), to reinforce learning. It’s fun, interactive activity. You can ask targeted questions, i.e., Can you count 20 seconds? Can you show me how you would wash around your thumbs? How many more do you need for a line or a full house? I have found that even the most reluctant learners will eventually want to volunteer to be the caller.
