Following Directions All Year - Intermediate Grade Level

by Kathy Babineau
Grades 3-8



This product is designed for use with children in grades 3-8, but may be fun and appropriate for other age groups as well depending on skill level and how it is modified. For some students, it is helpful to break the directions down into manageable steps and preview vocabulary and concept terms. For more advanced students, you may choose to link directions together to challenge them. 

There are 50 different Following directions activities in this kit. Themes were chosen so that this kit could be used as a weekly activity throughout the school year. 

To use, simply make enough photocopies of the “coloring pages” as you need for your class or group. (I have done these activities with entire classrooms, in small groups and with individual students.) Only one copy of each of the “directions” pages is necessary, as these are designed to be read aloud by the teacher/speech language pathologist. Distribute the “coloring pages” to your students, and then instruct them to take out pencils and crayons and to listen to your directions carefully. I often encourage my students to ask for clarification or repetition as needed. Then, read the directions, one at time, and challenge your students to follow your directions carefully as they color and add detail to their papers.

Reading Spotlight









As an English teacher whose students could not read, I went back to school to become a reading specialist. Three years in high school, ten years in middle school, and seventeen years in elementary schools were spent in a district with very high poverty. Now that I am retired and have had time to reflect, I feel that it was, other than family, the most rewarding experience of my life.



My Resources

At the Reading Spotlight, I create enjoyable, research-based, practice materials for reading and writing improvement. One of my favorite resources is my free Self-Help Tests that encourage students to take some responsibility for their own learning (mindfulness!) and provide practical suggestions for ways to improve. This is one of them:


Another favorite is a set of Audience Participation Plays that improve listening skills. Kids REALLY enjoy these plays with simple, group parts and no-prep for teachers. They improve student listening abilities, too! You can find one below. 




Some of my best-selling resources are  Bingo games to teach phonics, word family, and difficult cluster decoding skills. This is one of them:





Where can you find me?



TBOTEMC’s Teacher Talk and its members have been very helpful and encouraging, s
tarting from the top with Vicky.   I have spent all of my time and energy helping kids, and our district had very little money for training. I am mostly self-taught in computing, with large gaps, and EVERY single person has been greatly supportive.
