This week’s practical tip ~
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”
