To get you started, below we’ve included free downloadable resources created in Widgit Online to celebrate the fall:
- Best Costume Certificate for Halloween (okay maybe we were a smidge tardy….)
- Simple roasted pumpkin seed recipe
- In Flanders Fields poem symbolized for Remembrance Day
In the coming weeks we’ll share some resources for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas.
Clear visuals at children’s eye level in words and pictures is good practice that is mandated in many jurisdictions across the country.
- Labeling locations of materials and learning areas for quick cleanup by the children
- Diagrams for introducing new vocabulary
- Visual schedules
- Student names
Instead of cutting, pasting, photocopying with muddy, inconsistent images, Widgit delivers:
- Thoughtfully designed, clearly drawn picture vocabulary of over 60,000 words, that focuses on teaching word families. Including Canadian specific vocabulary: provinces, landmarks, historical figures.
- Use your own photos and pictures – for consistency in your classroom. Type the word and they pop right up!
- Templates for Avery labels, certificates, word banks, visual schedules, timetables, flash cards, matching games, and so much more.
In future posts we’ll focus in on Widgit’s multilingual features that let you easily reflect and celebrate the diversity of your community and share information with parents and guardians for whom English may not be their first language.
