This peg literacy resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils. It is made up of cloze sentences with one word missing. The pack contains 20 cards – on the left hand side of each card is a sentence with a word missing – the focus is on animals and their homes. The pupil has to use a clothes peg to identify on the right hand side of the card which word would best complete the sentence.
Cut up the sheets into 20 separate cards and laminate the cards. This pack could be an ideal activity for a literacy station. A pack of six sets could be put together, one for each pupil in the group, to be completed at a literacy station.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but who can read and comprehend, therefore it is a way for them to demonstrate this understanding. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
As a follow-up activity, the pupil, if able, could be asked to write out the completed sentence into their copy.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what language topic we were currently working on.
