Learning to read how other people feel and how to react is difficult for all young people. And, of course, it’s even more challenging for those with learning difficulties.
Which is why we have produced the Relationship Activity Pack – to help young people with special needs examine their own feelings – anger, frustration, embarrassment, happiness – and recognise those feelings in others.
The Relationship Activity Pack consists of:
- Six story books, which support the ASDAN Transition Challenge and Towards Independence Life Skills courses, each exploring a different situation where it is important that young people identify their emotions, as well as the emotions of others.Titles include, “The Date: Rachel’s Story” and “The Date: Mike’s Story” (differing opinions and sides to a story), “Mum’s New Boyfriend” (accepting a parent’s new partner), “My Teacher” (understanding teacher/pupil relationships), “Sisters at War” (managing sibling tension) and “Staying Out Late” (the issues it raises with parents).
- A CD-ROM providing electronic versions of the above titles, making it ideal for interactive whiteboard presentations and for students who would also benefit from listening to the text. It is also possible to edit and save the text to make your own story, create differentiated texts, and personalise the text with your students’ names to enhance engagement.
- An extensive range of activity worksheets and interactive activities that encourage reading comprehension. Activities include: Missing Words, Quizzes, Drag and Drop, Words and Pictures, Picture Search, Keyword Flashcards, Wordsearch, Spot the Difference, and How Well Did You Read?.
- Supporting resources for teachers including page-by-page notes for all the stories and assessment resources (feedback sheets and student record sheets).
The complete set of resources containing two copies of each of the six readers, the complete teacher book, and the CD Rom is available for £139 plus VAT (saving 10% on the price of individual elements).
Individual elements from the pack are also available separately.
