I teach special education - I find myself constantly hearing from my kids "What do I need?" or "Can I use crayons/markers/[insert supply] on this?" These visuals help to promote my students' independence, instead of asking if a certain supply is allowable or what they need to use, they have a visual representation of what is needed for a task.
Included in this download is large "classroom" visuals to put on a chalkboard or display somewhere where a lot of students can see them for a large group activity. Also included is a small strip with the words "I need..." and spaces to put up to 3 supply pictures. I use these at the independent work stations in my classroom, when I set out their tasks for the day, I simply chose the supplies they will need and add it to the table.
All images are available in color, as well as black and white. There are multiple colors of folders to chose from - in my room folders are subject specific, so I may need to specify the "yellow folder" instead of just folder. In case your room is not set up this way, there is also a generic "folder" option.
The large classroom visuals include labels to help promote reading in your classroom - the smaller visuals for the small group strips are available both with and without labels depending on your classroom needs.
