As Special Educators, we know the importance of hands-on, visually supported resources. Circulars provide an extremely useful and free resource for educators who wish to provide their students a wide range of activities that build a strong variety of academic, functional daily-living and vocational skills.
Circulars can be used with mathematics in order to build number recognition, monetary and numeral value, budgeting and a variety of other skills. They can be used to study health & nutrition by developing an understanding of healthy vs. unhealthy eating habits, food groups and personal dietary preferences. We can use circulars to build and reinforce letter recognition, phonemic awareness and environmental and thematic vocabulary. Finally, students can build more general vocational, functional daily-living and transition skills through the use of graphic organizers that focus on categorization, sequencing, compare and contrast, listening skills and following directions.
Circulars provide a very flexible and FREE resource for teachers
to use in a variety of ways. Oh, and did I say that they are FREE? Just pick up a stack at your local grocery store and you have all the visual supports you need for an excellent variety of activities. They can be an educator's best friend!
In this download, you will receive 37 pages of printable circular-based activities. Many of which can be adapted and used in more than one way. I hope this is useful, and thanks in advance for your positive/constructive feedback!
