I don't know what it is, but my kiddos have the hardest time reading directions and following them. Most of the time, they don't read the directions and end up doing the activity wrong. Tell me I'm not the only one?!?!
I remember a teacher I had in 4th grade gave us a "test." If you followed directions, you read the entire thing before starting some of the hilarious activities. Did I follow the directions? Of course not. I was "following directions," or so I thought. Until I reached the end of the test and realized if I read through the entire test like the directions stated, I wouldn't of had to do jumping jacks, call out funny things, solve math problems, and other activities I don't exactly remember.
It's time I do the same with my class so I put together this fun activity. Just pass it out, give them a 5-minute time limit, and watch to see which little love bugs can follow directions. I promise you, it's a bit of a crack-up to watch and after the activity, you can have a mini-lesson about the importance of following directions. Let me know how it goes!
