This is a packet that teaches students with special needs about table manners. There are seven pages in the packet, and they tie an important life skill into reading skills.
Because students with special needs may not fully comprehend appropriate behavior at the dinner table, they need reinforcement as to what they should and should not do. This packet will allow students to understand different situations revolving around eating.
Page 1: the title page of the packet
Pages 2-4: Vocabulary - there are four words, each with a picture and definition. Page two is a reference sheet that the teacher uses to introduce the words to the students. This page can also be made into flashcards or used as a study guide. Page three is a cut and paste activity. Students cut out all the words, pictures, and definitions. They match them up and paste them onto page four, which is a blank template for the words, pictures, and definitions.
Page 5: students are shown 9 scenarios (with words and pictures). They are asked to circle the appropriate behaviors, and place an X the inappropriate ones.
Page 6: 5 multiple choice questions about table manners with Boardmaker clues for understanding. Students are given a field of two answer choices for each statement/question.
Page7: Cut and paste reading comprehension. Students cut off the bottom strip of the paper and place the correct answer in each box to complete sentences.
