When giving directions to children, use these picture cards to give visual directions.
You tell the children that todays work should first be colored, then cut, then glued.
Put up the card for 1st and next to it the card with the crayons
Card for 2nd and next to it the card with the scissors
Card for 3rd and next to it the card with the glue
I laminate these and put sticky back magnetic strips on the back. Then put them up while giving verbal directions, placing them on the magnetic white board as I explain each step in the process.
NO more tearing off cut and paste that was't colored first!! lol
Cards for first-fifth
