These Monthly Following Directions packets are a fun way to practice listening skills, build vocabulary, and improve visualization and working memory skills! All of these skills are part of a good foundation for learning and the activities in the resource below help develop all of them. These packets are what I wished I had when I was working as a speech-language therapist.
What’s in this month’s following directions packet…
December Following Directions Packet: Christmas Plants contains a landscape scene with different plants associated with Christmas. Your kids will follow five different sets of directions to color and add to the scene. They will love learning some facts about Christmas plants and coloring with colored pencils or crayons during this fun hands-on activity.
Target vocabulary includes: left, right, top, bottom, next to and more. There is a challenging set of directions at the end where your children will be introduced to the concept of conditional directions…”if ________, then _______.”
Modifications are suggested in the instructions to make the activity harder or easier depending on the level of your children so this packet can be used with a variety of ages and skill levels!
And if you have preschool children, check out the pictures with simple directions at the end of the packet for a fun following directions activity that gets them moving! They will be introduced to the names of several plants, which will be a good challenge for them.
First, young children will follow directions to color the pictures. Then, you will give them directions to place the pictures around your home working on vocabulary such as under, behind, in front of, on top, and next to. Preschoolers learn best when they move!
