Loving it

I'm loving using this resource! I have a ton of students (1:1) with a goal of following directions, and I'm so bored with my other ones. These are so great for students who are beyond the physical directions (touch nose, then jump up three times, then turn around once, etc) and ready for different challenges. Thank you for the work you do.

This was excellent for developing my student's metacognitive skills as well as her visual perception.

Love it!

Dr. Warren does it again! I love all of her products and this one is no exception. Many of my students have trouble with following mutli-step directions. This resource is a wonderful way for them to practice following directions in a fun, engaging way. Thank you, Erica!
