Study skills

To understand directions, I can...


Say what I hear...use sequence words (first, second, next, last)

Ask the teacher to break the direction into steps

Ask the teacher to repeat the directions more slowly

Use body language to act out the directions

Get a picture in my mind of what it would look like to follow the directions

Use self-talk. Repeat the directions quietly to myself while I do each part. Count out the steps.

Ask for a demonstration ("Could you please show me what you mean?")

Watch my classmates

Ask questions about words I don't understand
