This set of following directions worksheets is designed for use with children in grades 3-8, but may be fun and appropriate for other age groups as well depending on skill level and how it is modified. For some students, it is helpful to break the directions down into manageable steps and preview vocabulary and concept terms. For more advanced students, you may choose to link directions together to challenge them.
There are 50 different Following directions worksheets in this kit. Themes were chosen so that these worksheets could be used as a weekly activity throughout the school year.
To use these following directions worksheets, simply make enough photocopies of the “coloring pages” as you need for your class or group. (I have done these activities with entire classrooms, in small groups and with individual students.) Only one copy of each of the “directions” pages is necessary, as these are designed to be read aloud by the teacher/speech language pathologist. Distribute the “coloring pages” to your students, and then instruct them to take out pencils and crayons and to listen to your directions carefully. I often encourage my students to ask for clarification or repetition as needed. Then, read the directions, one at time, and challenge your students to follow your directions carefully as they color and add detail to their papers.
To use these following directions worksheets in distance learning, you can screenshare and allow your students access to annotating tools for coloring and circling items. For my families who don't have the necessary technology to access annotation tools, I email the coloring pages to families and ask parents to print the pages and provide child with crayons or markers. I can then read the directions aloud to the child as he/she colors at home.
These following directions worksheets and read aloud directions are also great for sending home to families for home practice.
