There is a symbol supported powerpoint about lighthouses and a lighthouse fact sheet for children to complete.

Similes, introduction. SEN,

(0)
I made this resources to introduce similes to a mixed KS1 / KS2 group of students with autism. There is a mindmap used to introduce the idea - think of something that is white, think of something which is white. Children used these to complete sentences I wrote on the whiteboard (we were reading The Little Polar Bear). There are 2 worksheets for children - identify a simile from a choice of 4 names pictures. There is a final 2 sheets using a visual mindmap to suggest alternative words for 'cold' and 'worried'. Saved in PDF and in Publisher. Used in primary but also suitable for SEN / KS3.

ASD / SEN All About Me Factfile, new class, transition, get to know you activity

(0)
This is a 2 page fact sheet designed for my class who were a mixed age primary group, all with autism, attending a specialist provision. This group were working between P6 and approximately a Y1 level. The activity was designed to increase learner’s awareness of basic facts relating to themselves as few of the class were aware of basic personal information such as their full name, birthday and address. As the activity was geared around them, they were more engaged than usual and most were able to remember the key facts after practising asking and answering each other. I also linked this to our maths - taking about how many of each eye colour / shoe size etc and measuring heights, hands and feet. I will upload that separately. Activities suitable for any age group working at this level. Eye is to be coloured in with appropriate colour - in case anyone is wondering why there is nowhere to write the eye colour!

A few resources from when we read Sharing a Shell. I teach a mixed age primary class, all with autism attending specialist ASD provision. Ability at the time ranged between P4 and approx Reception / Year 1 level. Resources are also suitable for mainstream learners working at this level. Download includes: Sharing a Shell book review - A4 sheet, learners identify who is in the story, where the story is set and what happened 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Sharing a Shell LA - position activity for my lowest ability learner, I used this with the child working 1:1 with a TA, discussing the picture and seeing if the child could identify ‘where’ (TA reading the sentence) Position Sharing a Shell - 2 near identical worksheets for children to write the appropriate word in the gap. I can draw… - these were to encourage mark making / fine motor skills. Frame with a prompt picture of the characters in Sharing a Shell. 3 x A4 sheets. Who words dotted - We did a lot of narrative and colourful semantic work in English lessons. This activity was to reinforce / generalise understanding of ‘who’ and to develop mark making / handwriting / recognition of character names (more able).

Can I afford it? Up to £1. Basic money sense / life skills peg cards. ASD/SEN

Can I afford it? Up to £1. Basic money sense / life skills peg cards. ASD/SEN

(0)
Cards show British coins up to £1 in value, stating “I have…” Underneath is a statement saying how much an item costs. Learners need to count the coins and decide whether they can afford the item. Many learners with ASD / SEN struggle with money sense and the idea of whether an item is affordable or not. This activity could be extended to ask how much change the student would receive if the item is affordable, or alternatively, how much more money they would need. Designed as an independent workstation task for learners with autism but could also be used in a small group. Learners use clothes pegs to answer the question yes / no to make the task more interactive and to focus those who find sitting and writing to be difficult.

Problem Scale (Emotional Resilience) - social communication / autism / ASD / SEN

(0)
Problem Scale activity. Designed for children who struggle with resilience or to differentiate a big problem from a tiny problem. Accompanying cards give problem suggestions for discussion of where each problem would fit on the problem scale - is the problem a huge one or a tiny one. This activity is suitable for 1 to 1 or small group work. It could be extended by use of the feelings poster to encourage learners to think about how each problem would make them feel. Theory of Mind skills can also be promoted through discussion if a problem is viewed differently by learners.

STEM Lego challenge cards, some Christmas themed. SEN/KS1

STEM Lego challenge cards, some Christmas themed. SEN/KS1

(1)
Lego challenge cards, symbol supported for non / early readers. Some are Christmas themed as I’ve just made them to try and keep my children busy during this last week. Children choose or are given a card which gives an instruction - e.g. build a Christmas tree / first letter of your name and use Lego to build as instructed. It’s a fairly open ended activity but my hope is to provide more structure and purpose to play for my children with autism as some have very short attention spans and flit from activity to activity without any meaningful engagement. 24 cards in all, best printed onto card or laminated so they last.

Victorians - Queen Victoria's Life. Structured PowerPoint and accompanying worksheet. SEN, ASD

(0)
This is a PowerPoint used to teach students about Queen Victoria as part of a Humanities topic. As students all had autism, it is highly structured to ensure pupils were aware of what the lesson involved and what they needed to do. This reduced anxiety for several very anxious pupils. Independent working is stressed as this was a development point for the group in question. Taught to Year 7 pupils with social communication difficulties, including autism, as a general'Humanities' lesson. Speaking, listening, classroom and social skills were prioritised. Also suitable for older / younger students. PowerPoint is editable.
