Power-Up your classroom with BYTES Power Smarts®!
Don’t just tell your students to “Pay Attention,” teach them HOW to pay attention! With the attention focus skills introduced and practiced in this lesson plan, students will become better and better at paying attention. Over time, their bodies and brains will automatically shift into action when presented with situations requiring a high level of focus. These life skills will transfer to other classes and benefit students throughout their educational careers.
BYTES Power Smarts® uses original art for its instructional materials – no clip art. We think your students will enjoy our unique characters. Learn more about the BYTES characters who live in the Info-verse at bytespowersmarts.com

BYTES Power Smarts® instructional materials can be printed in color or grayscale although we recommend the use of color to keep students interested and focused. Every printer is different, so we suggest adjusting your printer settings to:
Page Size: Actual Size; Orientation: Auto Portrait/Landscape; Page Set Up: Borderless 8.5 X 11"; Scale: 100%. To save ink, try one page to be sure it prints the borders before printing the entire packet as you might have to make printer setting adjustments.
