This peg maths resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or AEN pupils. It is based on the pupil’s ability to read the calendar. It contains a one-month calendar for a July, followed by 24 question cards based on the calendar. The pupil reads the question on the left of each card (or a teacher/SNA may read it to them) followed by the three possible answers on the right of the card. They then place a clothes peg on the answer that they think is correct.
Laminate the July calendar, cut up the 24 separate cards and laminate them also. This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but who understand the concept of time on the calendar, therefore it is a way for them to demonstrate this understanding.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but have a good knowledge of the calendar. 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.
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 Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
