This seasonal resource, based on Halloween characters, is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or SEN pupils. Pupils should try to identify the names of the Hallowe’en character in the image on the left of the card and, if they are able to read, to match it to the word on the right of the card by attaching a clothes peg to the correct word. Alternatively, the teacher/SNA could read the words to the pupil and ask them which word matches the image on the card.
Cut up the sheets into sixteen individual cards and laminate the cards individually. This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can match the names of the Halloween characters. 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 language topic we were currently working on. Pupils enjoyed an activity such as this for homework at Hallowe’en time as it was seen as “fun” homework.
