Jen is a mother of three young children, one aged five and twins aged seven. She has a part-time job in a food packaging factory. As a child she was frequently absent from school, and left with no qualifications and limited literacy skills. Soon after, she had the twins.

She is able to read only the basic messages she needs to cope day to day, and struggles to write her name and address for basic form filling.

Her tutor has followed some of the assessment procedures for environmental print and Jen demonstrated limited sight recognition of a narrow range of signs.

Teaching suggestions for Jen

  • Use packaging and advertising from the food products she packs at work, particularly at times when her tasks change and she will need to learn new words.
  • Encourage her to go on sign walks with her children, and make flashcards later (the children could draw the signs).
  • Make a photo record of environmental print in her neighbourhood, then further afield. Use these to extend her repertoire of familiar words.
  • Ask Jen to describe the places she would like to visit or needs to find, then find or make signs that will help her. For example, make or photograph signs that will help her navigate into the city and find a specific place.

Running Shoe Fit Tips
Foot size: Shoe lasts (which determine shoe sizes) vary by manufacturer and even from one shoe model to another. http://www.lightupshoe.sale. You may need a half-size or even a full size smaller or larger than you think. If you're unsure, have your feet measured. http://www.nikeyeah.com. Try on shoes at the end of the day. Your feet normally swell a bit during the day's activities and will be at their largest then. This helps you avoid buying www.mkpee.com shoes that are too small. http://www.nikeshoesales.com. Aim for a thumbnail's length of extra space in the toebox. The width should be snug but allow a bit of room for your foot to move without rubbing. Laces should be snug but not tight. Barefoot shoes are an exception: Heel and toes should “fit like a glove”without any extra http://www.shoesmaxs.com space in the toes.
