This resource is aimed at infant/junior pupils or SEN pupils. It is based on learning and visual discrimination of colours with a backpacks theme. The resource asks pupils to match the backpacks of the same colour.
Cut up the sheets into fifteen separate cards and laminate each of the cards individually. Pupils should look at the backpacks on the top of each card. The pupil should then attach a peg to the matching coloured backpack on the bottom of each card from the three possible backpacks given.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but know and can match their colours. 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.
Activities such as these were also used as Independent work completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
