Do your children impulsively switch from one activity to the next? Do they lack ability decide what they want to do, to reflect on what they have done, what they like, and what they want to do next time? Do they go home at the end of a day not remembering what they did? These choice boards will help you teach your children to plan an activity, follow it though to completion and review their choices by indicating –coloring what they have done. The visuals then help them to describe activities completed to a parent later in the day.
