Ideas needed for following instructions


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello

Does anyone have any tried and tested ideas for following instructions - preferably pictorial/written?

Last week one of the children helped to put together a new stool. He enjoyed looking at the instructions and using the tools and was able to do this with a little support; I would like to develop this - I had thought about the cards which you can use with Popoids - but when I looked it was not really what I wanted.

Any thoughts?

What was it particularly about the popoid instructions you did not like? We use various things like that also we use bee bots to follow a route, or some cooking with pictures of how many spoonfuls to make their own playdough - could you engage this child in making a Lego construction and write the 'blueprint' for him, then see if he can re- create it, make a treasure map for him to follow

k-nex is really good too - they have photos of things to make and the children can check they have the right piece as they can place the piece on top of photo as it is the actual size.

Oh yes ours love those, some do need a lot of imagination to see what it is though, or is it just me?

Hello Panders - the popoid instructions show either a picture of a constructed popoid figure/model with questions on the reverse or shows only the pieces needed to make a model without an 'end product' picture; I was really looking for step-by-step instructions with pictures/photos, so that the child has to follow the pictures to make the 'end product'.

Thanks for all your ideas everyone!
