This resource is aimed at pupils in younger classes or pupils with speech and language difficulties. It consists of 50 question cards where the answer is simply “Yes” or “No”. There are two large “Yes” and “No” circles that can be used to place the cards when answered by pupils.
All of the questions in this pack are based on an animal theme – they ask questions about domestic and wild animals and birds.
Yes/No games may be a challenge for pupils with language impairments and yet they present the pupil with great learning opportunities. When the pupil answers the question it gives an opportunity for a conversation to open up between the child and the teacher based on the answer. So, if the question is “Does a robin live in a hive?” and the pupil answers “No”, then the teacher can follow up by asking “Who lives in a hive?” or “Where does the robin live?”
This resource could be used with individual pupils in a special class setting, with pupils working with LS/Resource teacher or during an oral work station in Station Teaching.
It is suggested that the question cards and the “Yes” and “No” circles are cut up and laminated so that they can be used again and again.
The borders used in this resource are from Creative Clips on Teachers Pay Teachers.
