This resource is aimed at junior/middle pupils or SEN pupils at the beginning of literacy work on comprehension. There are sixteen cards in this pack.
Each card features a cloze-type sentence on the left, with a word missing. Each sentence is based around knowledge of vocabulary associated with a car. The context should give the pupil a clue as to the missing word. Three different answer options are given on the right of each card.
Either the pupil reads the sentence themselves, or the teacher/SNA/supporting adult reads the sentence to the pupil. The pupil should then place a clothes peg on the answer that they think is correct from the three options given.
Cut up the sheets into sixteen separate cards and laminate them individually. In this way, the resource can be used again and again. If the pupil is bale, the completed sentence could be written by the pupil into their copy.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can understand and comprehend. It is a way for them to demonstrate their comprehension and knowledge of vocabulary. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
This pack could be used for a Comprehension Station as part of a Literacy Station Teaching session.
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 literacy topic we were currently working on.
This activity would also work well as an independent task to be completed by the pupil in their work station.
