When delivered, our products are neither cut nor laminated. The accessories, like perspex boxes, file caskets and so on, that are sometimes shown in the catalogue, were only taken to demonstrate a possible use of our items. They are not part of the item itself and not included.
The 'Body’ section consists of 3 A4 pictures with blank labels, 3 A4 control cards, and 36 small word cards. 32 picture cards show the parts of the body, and there are a further 32 word cards to go with them.
The ‘Senses’ section consists of 5 picture cards with drawings of the parts of the body that correspond to the 5 senses (ear, mouth, eye, hand, nose), and word cards with these parts, the senses and the corresponding verbs (e.g. eye, sight, see). In addition there are 15 picture cards (an ice cream, a ball, a rose, a trumpet, etc.) that can be matched to the senses.
The ‘Care’ section consists of 6 sides showing 6 different ways of caring for the body in words and with pictures. Words and sentences can be matched to the pictures. The individual words can be used to build sentences.
Preparing the Material:
All of the cards are meant to be laminated (recommended laminate thickness: 90-125 micron).
The individual cards need to be cut out.
Sides not to be laminated: none
Sides or cards to be bound into a booklet: none
There are 3 aspects to the work about the body: The children can learn the names of the body parts, they can match the senses to the corresponding parts of the body and they can build sentences about body care in each of which the verb is highlighted.
Possible application in connection with topics or projects such as: ‘Our Bodies’, ‘Your Senses’, ‘Body Care’
Free time activity, individual work, pair work, small group work
Before You Begin:
To work with this material, the children require:
books, large sheets of paper, painting materials
How to Use:
The children lay out and match the cards.
Control of Error:
For the body, the A4 control cards can be used. Coloured control points can be put on the reverse side of the cards with the senses. Sentences with the individual word cards can be checked by referring to the complete sentence cards.
This material should be kept in three separate containers according to the topic.
The children can draw around the parts of their own bodies (or a partner’s body), and paint and/or label the outline.
Actual everyday objects should be used together with the part ‘Senses’. A ‘Senses Day’, when objects/foods are felt, smelt, tasted, heard and seen is very popular with the children.
