Following One Step Directions {spring freebie}

Categories: Curriculum Ideas

Fun and seasonal freebie today! It’s similar to the receptive language worksheets that I have been making loads of versions of lately – but makes it a little more structured. I have a few students working on some more basic ABLLS (Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills) tasks such as color identification and following one step direction. Following one step directions can be tricky for some of my students with low receptive language. I made these tasks to work on this skill in a structured way and provide a visual prompt as well. Download for free: Following Simple Directions with Colors and please leave some feedback love!

Each worksheet is basically a coloring sheet:

and comes with coordinating flashcards for the one step directions:

You can show the student the flashcards to provide a prompt or just read the directions to make it more challenging. The set contains 5 worksheets with 3-6 flashcards per sheet. This activity is perfect for a paraprofessional to run. It’s simple and straightforward but still requires some adult guidance! Happy Monday 🙂


  1. Thanks so much for this! My students are going to love it.

  2. Love it! We are always working on following the directions. It’s good to have some new pictures. With the index card instructions, I can see this being part of my art center.

  3. Thank you so much! Great Spring activity!

  4. Great!

  5. You are very welcome! 🙂
