This is a set of 10 cards that can be posted on your board. This helps keep students focused on the activity by giving clear expectations of the supplies they need to use (or the ones they SHOULD NOT use).
All you do is print, cut, and post to your board. When you have an activity/project/etc. you merely put a check mark beside the supplies that students are allowed to use. If you need to help students even more, put an X beside the supplies that shouldn't be used.
This helped my class so much. They didn't have to ask, because I had already answered. The visuals are beneficial to lower learners, EL, or EE classes.
