Introduction
Welcome!
ollowing directions is a basic life skill. Everyone needs to be able
to follow directions independently in order to complete everyday
tasks. Directions help us to fill out applications, follow recipes, travel
from here to there, complete forms, and assemble parts. And, following
directions is crucial to success in the classroom. Children in particular
need to follow directions in order to:

z complete activities correctly


Connections to
the Standards

z play games and sports


z solve puzzles
Sometimes, difficulty with following directions can hinder an
otherwise capable students performance. Heres the book you need to
help children build these important skills all year long, especially those
commonly given in the classroom:

Uses reading skills


and strategies to
understand a variety
of informational
texts.
Gives and responds
to oral directions.

Using These Pages

hese reproducible pages can be used anytimefor whole group


instruction, small group, individual seatwork or even homework.
z Make a copy of the page for each student.

Supporting
Students Who
Have Trouble
Following
Directions

z If working with a student individually, sit quietly with him or


her. Together, read each direction slowly and carefully. Have
the student explain in his or her own words exactly what he
or she is being asked to do.

Discuss your concerns


with your schools
learning specialist
to determine if any
testing should be
recommended.

z Remind students to write their name and the date at the top
of their paper.

Provide both written


and oral directions.

z Make sure that students understand and complete the first


direction before moving on to the next.

As much as possible,
seat the student away
from auditory or visual
distraction.

z Have students check their work before moving on to the


next direction.
z When the activity is complete, have students reread all the
directions, check each detail, and make any necessary changes.
For more strategies, see sidebar at right.

Speak slowly and


clearly, using words
like first, next, then
and last.
Avoid asking the
student to write and
listen simultaneously.
Start with single
directions and
gradually move to
multi-step directions.

If Students Have Trouble

or a variety of reasons, following directions presents a special


challenge for some students. In order to follow directions
correctly, they must listen, read slowly and carefully, pay attention,
and concentrate. Since remembering the sequence of several steps
can be confusing, have students take one direction at a time and
think about it until they understand exactly what they are being asked
to do. You might have them check off each step as it is completed.
To demonstrate the real-life importance of following directions,
you might ask students to dictate or write directions for a familiar
task, such as making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then,
pantomime following their directions, making some obvious
mistakes as you go (such as not taking the lid off the jar)!

Follow the DIrections...and Learn! Grades 2-3

Use a highlighter to
indicate the numbers
of each step.
Stop periodically to
ensure the student
is on track.
Check yourself to
assess the level of
vocabulary you are
using.
Have a peer act as
a model for the
struggling student.
