Great question! I guess I should be more specific in product description. I am sorry! I use them anytime we are doing independent work. I go over what the directions are and the tools that they need. I post these on the board and eliminate the, "Mrs. Leeeeeeeee.....can we use markers?" or "Mrs. Leeeee do we use stick glue or bottle glue?" :-) Now, I teach Kinder...so obviously I don't eliminate all of those lol!
I have been a teacher for 15 years. I taught early childhood special education for 9 years. I am currently teaching Kindergarten! This is my 7th year of teaching Kindergarten at the best elementary school in Nebraska! :-)
