This product includes Visual Direction Cards in English, as well as another totally editable set. You can now write your own directions on your cards in any language! Perfect for the bilingual or ESL Classroom!
Please note that only the text is editable. The pictures are not editable. However, I have included some blank cards if you would like to make some direction cards with your own images.
This large set of visual direction cards are a super way to improve your classroom management, and help your students better understand what needs to be completed! There are 160 cards in English and a separate set of 130 editable cards to reinforce concepts, steps, terminology, vocabulary, strategies, and directions that you want your students to remember. These cards help by showing your students what they need to do or have for different activities. They reinforce verbal directions and will make a positive difference in your classroom. The cards come in a small (3.7 x 3.3) for small groups, centers, and individual directions, and a larger size (6 x 5) for whole group instructions.
This set includes cards for younger and older students. You can now write your own text on these cards to meet the needs and skill levels of your own students. Just write your text in the font of your choice, print, laminate, and cut out. They can be clipped to the board, put into pocket charts, used in centers, or magnets can be stuck to the back of these cards.
These cards help all students, but I find them especially helpful for my ESL and special needs students. If there is a card that you need, but don’t see it in this set, just let me know, and I will make it and add it to the set. I have put the cards into different categories/subject areas, but I know that most of them can be used in most, if not all, subjects. This set includes the following direction cards:
