One of the most important life skills that a student can learn is how to write their personal information on forms and job applications. You may think your students know their personal information because you ask them "what is your birthday?" and they can say it aloud, but what would your students write if they saw "mm/dd/yy"? Would they be able to fill out "Last, First, MI" correctly? Do they know the difference between address and street address? These are important parts of forms, and if students do not fill them out correctly then they may get turned down for a job or post-secondary education/training opportunity!
This packet includes review activities for teachers who are finishing a job application/life skills form unit and want to review before a test. It can also be used for teachers who are teaching job/life skills units and feel that their students only need a quick review of writing their personal information before moving on. It allows students to practice writing their name, birthdate, address, gender, and contact information in different ways.
The first activity is a PowerPoint presentation that can be used with students logged on to Socrative or students who are using individual whiteboards/chalkboards. This interactive activity allows teachers to provide immediate feedback to their students while students are actively engaged in reviewing important key words.
The second activity is computer based. Students open one of two Word documents (differentiated A and B) and practice filling out their personal information independently. The form requires them to type in their personal information into text fields, use pull down menus and check boxes like an authentic online application. Students can then email their teacher the document or print it.
The packet also includes a print version of the Word document, 4 days of printable homework, a lesson plan linked to CCSS CCSS.ELA-Literacy.WHST.11-12.2.d, and a detailed explanation on how to use each of the activities.
Help your students successfully transition to adulthood by being able to fill out forms and applications in the community by using this unit! Check out my TPT store for other life skills, job skills and classroom management resources.
