Practical Tip ~ Arrow Chart

This week’s practical tip ~

Arrows

I discovered this concept during my studies in remedial education when I was a student and used it regularly with all my classes during my teaching career.  Teaching and reinforcing directionality and spatial awareness, the arrow chart is a very effective exercise for children, helping in all subjects and activities.

  • Quick and fun, arrow chart drills last only a few minutes
  • Can be adapted for groups and one-on-one lessons
  • Used as a preparation before a formal lesson, arrow charts promote focus and attention
  • Excellent tool to help refocus a child after breaks
  • Wonderful for remedial skills which help improve a child’s handwriting, spelling and maths
  • Use bean bags and jumping for gross motor responses
  • Use just arm movements for seated drills
  • Apply verbal commands or replies “up/ down/ left/ right”  or compass directions “north/ south/ east/ west”
