"Dog Tags" enable students to transfer learning to their classroom, specials, home, etc. when taken from a small group or one-on-one setting. Whether they are working with a special education teacher, reading interventionist, math interventionist, or speech therapist, students can have strategies and skills reinforced throughout their day then at home as well.
Transferring learning to different settings not only reinforces strategies, skills, and content learned in the small group or one-on-one setting, but it also is an easy daily method of keeping parents and classroom teachers in the know of what your learning target or objective for your lesson was that day.
The "tags" are cut out individually and then you may put tape on the back and have the child put it an upper corner of their shirt where it is easily visible. You can also print them out onto an address label to easily peel them off instead of using tape.
In the blank space, you can write "ask me to ....." and then fill in what you'd like a peer or adult to ask the child. A few examples are:
Ask me to re-tell the story "Goldie and the Three Bears"
Ask me to provide 3 facts I learned about wolves.
Ask me to count objects up to 13.
Ask me to write the words 'here, they'll, and I'm'
Ask me to say the missing numbers for the sum of 5.
** If children are asked to read high frequency words off the dog tag, an adult can show them the words then place it back on **
