I use these rebus action words for any group or morning work activity to help the students to become more independent. After explaining the action words they can come in every morning and know exactly what to do. I also use the same pictures at centers to help remind the children what the directions were for that center.
1) For morning work I printed off a set. Cut and laminated them. Then I used magnets to stick them on the board (same place every day!)
2) For centers I use the pictures on a separate piece of paper to explain the directions. (in the order I would like them done)
