Teaching Activities 

5WT6A: Safely using common classroom equipment, resources and techniques to shape and join familiar materials (Syllabus Indicator)

Students accessing this framework can achieve this indicator as it is written. However, various levels of support may be required to assist students to access classroom equipment safely.  The teacher would make observational statements to reinforce what the student was doing as well as emphasising using equipment safely.

When using scissors teacher states ‘SN, we are using scissors safely to cut the paper’.

 When using glue teacher states ‘SN, we are using glue safely to stick the paper together’.

Students may be able to achieve this indicator when using play dough, blocks and construction like materials where they are shaping and joining.
