This following directions packet is Halloween themed. It contains 1-step, 2-step, and conditional directions. The packet can also be used to target concepts (big/small, tall/short, shapes, emotions).
Cut and laminate pumpkins and their corresponding pieces. Attach velcro to pieces and appropriate places on the pumpkin. Then use the pumpkin face direction cards to create a variety of jack-o-lanterns.
Cut and laminate the board game and conditional direction playing cards. Read cards aloud for each student playing. If the student follows the direction correctly, tell him/her how many spaces to move ahead. Look out for the smashed pumpkin cards, or you'll move backward!
