Teach your students to read directions using these direction cards! Copy, laminate and attach magnets to the back of each card you need. Each direction word is coded with an easy-to-draw symbol and color for highlighting.
Over 80 Direction Cards were designed with the 4 basic highlighting colors most students have, as well as simple drawings for teaching and creating text marks. These are especially helpful for remedial readers, ELL/ESL students, as well as differently-abled students. Directions included cover writing, creating, verbalizing, thinking, text-marking, and calculating.
Ways to use Direction Cards:
• Identify “direction words”
• Teach text-marking skills
• Teach highlighting skills
• Have visual cues on the white board for assignments
Please let me know if you need additional direction words or pictures to enhance your classroom!
