Following & Giving Directions

What must happen in order for children to follow directions correctly?  Children need to understand basic concepts and classroom concepts.  Children need to be able to follow directions that are more than a single step. 


The reasons children may have difficulty following directions are that they do not understand the concepts or are having trouble processing the information.  If children do not understand the concepts, you’ll need to help them to learn them.  If they have trouble understanding the information, give them practice by asking them to repeat information back to you. 


The games and activities listed in this site are effective for helping children learn to be better at following and giving directions.
