A resource to help you make expected noise levels explicit. One of the most disruptive things to everyone's listening is levels of background noise which are too high. This is a good way of making children know what level of talking you expect.
For TAs supporting a particular child with attention and listening difficulties, small cue cards that fit on a lanyard or belt loop are a really helpful, non verbal way to refocus a child without distracting others nearby.
We love this story planner which we think will be really useful to support children with language or memory difficulties to plan written work. Use it as a whole sheet or cut out the individual components to help cue children in when supporting them in class.
This is a Christmas themed game to teach the “Listening to ALL the words” rule. Print out as many pictures as you need for your group and give one to each child. When everyone has got a picture then say “In a minute i am going to say the names of two Christmas things. If I say the name of your picture then you have to stand up and change places. If it is going well then you can introduce a rule that if you say “Christmas” then everyone has to stand up and change places.
