This resource is aimed at middle/senior pupils or SEN pupils. It is based on pupils’ knowledge of car registrations in Ireland. This resource should be used as a follow-up activity for pupils who have already learned the abbreviations used for car registrations in each of the counties of Ireland.
Cut up the sheets into twenty six separate cards and laminate each of the cards individually. Pupils should read the name of the county on the left hand side of each card. The pupil should then attach a clothes peg to the letters on the right hand side of the card which represent the abbreviation used in a car registration for that county, from the three options given.
An answer card is also provided within the resource. This could be used by the pupil as a self-correction checklist, or it could be used as a reference while the pupil is completing the activity.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to tell you the answers but knows the car registrations of Ireland and are able to match these. 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 SESE topic we were currently working on.
Activities such as these were also used as Independent work completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
