This resource is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or SEN pupils who are learning vocabulary about the beach. Cut up the sheets into twenty four separate cards and laminate the cards individually.
Pupils should try to recognise the beach-themed 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 from the three options given, by using a clothes peg. Alternatively, the teacher/SNA/supporting adult could read the words to the pupil and ask them which word matches the image on the card.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can match the autumn vocabulary. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
This pack could be split into two packs if the teacher feels that it is too large for the pupil to complete all at once.
This pack could also be used in Literacy Station Teaching where a pack is made for each member of the group.
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.
This activity could also be completed by the pupil as an independent task in their work station.
